Trinity was never taught by any of the prophets, not even Jesus (pbuh). A careful study of the current day bible has led even many of the bishops and priests today to denounce this concept. But the average Christian is still made to believe in it by local Churches.
In this episode, Dr.Laurence Brown explains top 10 such reasons why Trinity is not valid; neither by study of Bible nor by history.
Tawheed, or Oneness of God, is the core of Islamic faith. It is common knowledge that is the pillar of Islam that is most precisely expressed in the formula “La Ilaha Illallah” (There is no god but Allah) which states that there is only one true God and he alone deserves to be worshiped. This seemingly simple formula forms the dividing line between Eeman (true belief in God) and Kufr (disbelief) according to the tenents of Islam. Because of this belief the Islamic concept of God is considered to be unitarian and Islam is counted among world’s monotheistic religions along with Judaism and Christianity. Yet according to the Islamic unitarian concept Christianity is classified as polytheism and Judaism is considered a subtle form of idolatry. Thus the principle of tawhid is profound and needs clarification even among Muslims.
In this short audio lecture, Dr.Bilal Philips explains the pure monotheistic Concept of God in Islam.
The concept of God in Islam is unique. According to Islam, God is the CREATOR of the universe. Hence, He is completely different from His CREATION. God cannot be anything like a man, women, tree or an animal. In fact, even space & time are His creations, and He is not subject to them.
In short, God Almighty is incomparable to His creations.
There are many religions and spiritual institutions that say they believe in One God. Even many polytheistic religions do not entirely claim to believe in multiple gods. Amidst these claims of Monotheism by one and all, people usually misinterpret Islam as ‘just another’ religion that believes in ‘One God’.
However, a real look into Islamic concept of God makes one realize the degree to which a Islam believes in this Oneness of God, and how it is so very different and distinctly pure from all others that claim to believe in one God.
In simple words, god is something that is worshiped because people expect something in return from it. With this definition, everyone in this world has gods. Some have direct gods like idols, man-gods or heroes. Others have abstract gods like society, money, race, etc.
In this video, A.R.Green asks us to use common sense to realize the existence of God, and then examines other false-gods whether they are really worth worshiping or are they themselves dependent.

There are two Arabic words that are important to know for a discussion of Islamic monotheism. These are tawhid and shirk. Tawhid means “declaring God is one”, while shirk means “associating partners with God”. Thus tawhid is monotheism while shirk is to negate this by associating godly powers to others apart from God.
The Islamic scholars have defined three aspects to tawhid, each of which has several types of shirkthat negate it. Each of these will be discussed in turn.
