What? Mary Is Part of the Trinity? The Quran Says So!

The Quran is wrong in so many places. I will visit more of these errors in up coming blog posts.

– Surah 5:116, “And behold! Allah will say: ‘O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah?” ” He will say: “Glory to Thee! Never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, Thou I know not what is in Thine. For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden.”

Let’s take A look at Muslim commentary on this verse.
– Commentary regarding Surah 5:116, “And, mention, when God says, that is, when God will say, to Jesus at the Resurrection in rebuke of his followers: ‘O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say to mankind, “Take me and my mother as gods, besides God”?’ He, Jesus, says, shuddering: ‘Glory be to You!, exalted be You above all that does not befit You, such as [having] a partner and so on…” (http://www.altafsir.com/Tafasir.asp?

As a note, commentary on Surah 4:171 mentioned above also reveals that Mary was mistakingly considered part of the Trinity as is described in the Quran.

– Commentary regarding Surah 4:171, “So believe in God and His messengers, and do not say, that the gods are, ‘Three’, God, Jesus and his mother. Refrain, from this and say what, it is better for you, [to say], which is the profession of His Oneness. Verily, God is but One God.”(http://www.altafsir.com/Tafasir.asp?

Mistake:: Surah 5:116 implies that Christians taught that Mary is not part of the Trinity (which the Quran says is three gods). Christianity has never taught that Mary is to be worshiped or part of the Trinity. The Quran made a mistake.
