The Oneness of God is the message of Jesus and all the Prophets, peace
be upon them


The message that was brought by the Messiah (peace be upon him) was
the call to worship God, the One, the Lord of the Messiah and the Lord
of the worlds:

"Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God,
and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent"
John 17:3 - NIV

"A certain ruler asked him: 'Good teacher, what must I do to inherit
eternal life?'
'Why do you call me good?' Jesus answered. 'No one is good - except
God alone.'"
Luke 18:18-19 - NIV


"The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all
the kingdoms of the world.
And he said to him, 'I will give you all their authority and
splendour, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I
want to.
So if you worship me, it will all be yours.'
Jesus answered, 'It is written: "Worship the Lord your God and serve
him only."'"
Luke 4:5-8 - NIV


Believing in and worshipping Allaah alone, besides Whom there is no
other god, is the greatest teaching brought by the Messiah, and it is
the greatest teaching brought by all the Prophets.

"One of the teachers of the law came and noticed them debating.
Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, 'Of
all the commandments, which is the most important?'
'The most important one,' answered Jesus, 'is this: "Hear, O Israel,
the Lord our God, the Lord is one.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and
with all your mind and with all your strength."

The second is this: "Love your neighbour as yourself." There is no
commandment greater than these.'
'Well said, teacher,' the man replied. 'You are right in saying that
God is one and there is no other but him.
To love him with all your heart, with you all your understanding and
with all your strength, and to love your neighbour as yourself is more
important that all burnt offerings and sacrifices.'
When Jesus saw that he has answered wisely, he said to him, 'You are
not far from the kingdom of God.' And from then on no one dared ask
him any more questions."
Mark 12:28-34 - NIV


But do not think that this advice was given to Israel or to his own
people only. Rather this is the basis of the teachings of all the
Prophets. The same advice appears in the Gospel of Matthew, in similar
wording, after which he says:
"All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
Matthew 22:39 - NIV


This belief in the oneness of God is indeed the message of all of the
Prophets.

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
"And We did not send any Messenger before you (O Muhammad) but We
revealed to him (saying): Laa ilaaha illa Ana [none has the right to
be worshipped but I (Allaah)], so worship Me (Alone and none else)"
[al-Anbiya' 21:25]


This is the basic message to which the Messiah called people and
warned them against differing from that.

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
"Surely, they have disbelieved who say: 'Allaah is the Messiah ['Eesa
(Jesus)], son of Maryam (Mary).' But the Messiah ['Eesa (Jesus)] said:
'O Children of Israel! Worship Allaah, my Lord and your Lord.' Verily,
whosoever sets up partners (in worship) with Allaah, then Allaah has
forbidden Paradise to him, and the Fire will be his abode. And for the
Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers) there are no helpers"
[al-Maa'idah 5:72]


This is the basic principle on which we should all agree.

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
"Say (O Muhammad): 'O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians):
Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none
but Allaah (Alone), and that we associate no partners with Him, and
that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allaah.' Then, if
they turn away, say: 'Bear witness that we are Muslims'"
[Aal 'Imraan 3:64]


It is alien to true Christianity, this futile attempt to reconcile the
belief in the Oneness of God, which is the message brought by the
Prophets, and which is clearly stated in their Bible, and affirmed in
the Torah in particular, with their belief in the trinity.

It says in the American Encyclopedia:
The belief in the Oneness of God - as a theological movement - began
at a very early stage in history, and in fact it preceded the belief
in trinity by many decades. Christianity developed from Judaism, and
Judaism firmly believes that there is one God.
The path that led from Jerusalem (the home of the first disciples of
Christ) to Nicea (where it was decided in 325 CE that Christ was equal
to God in essence and eternal nature) can hardly be described as a
straight path.
The doctrine of trinity which was affirmed in the fourth century CE
bears no resemblance to the original teachings of Christ concerning
the nature of God. Au contraire, it is the opposite, a deviation from
that teaching. Hence it developed in opposition to the belief in One
God...
(27/294).


You can refer to the views of some of those Christians who still
believe in the Oneness of God in the sameAmerican Encyclopedia,
27/300-301
It is difficult to comprehend, so no wonder you were never able to
comprehend it. But what is strange is that you believe in something
that it is impossible to understand, unless we deceive ourselves and
say that this understanding will come on the Last Day:

"We understand that as much as our minds are able to, and we hope that
we will understand it more clearly in the future, when the veil is
removed from all things in heaven and on earth. But for now, the
extent to which we do understand it is enough!"

Yes, the truth will become perfectly clear to you in the future, as it
is clear to us today, praise be to Allaah, on the Day on which Allaah
will gather the Messengers and make them bear witness concerning their
nations.

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
"And (remember) when Allaah will say (on the Day of Resurrection): 'O
'Eesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)! Did you say unto men: Worship me
and my mother as two gods besides Allaah?' He will say: 'Glory be to
You! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had I said
such a thing, You would surely have known it. You know what is in my
inner-self though I do not know what is in Yours; truly, You, only
You, are the All-Knower of all that is hidden (and unseen).
117. 'Never did I say to them aught except what You (Allaah) did
command me to say: Worship Allaah, my Lord and your Lord. And I was a
witness over them while I dwelt amongst them, but when You took me up,
You were the Watcher over them; and You are a Witness to all things.
(This is a great admonition and warning to the Christians of the whole
world).
118. 'If You punish them, they are Your slaves, and if You forgive
them, verily, You, only You, are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.'
119. Allaah will say: This is a Day on which the truthful will profit
from their truth: theirs are Gardens under which rivers flow (in
Paradise) -- they shall abide therein forever. Allaah is pleased with
them and they with Him. That is the great success (Paradise).
120. To Allaah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and
all that is therein, and He is Able to do all things"
[al-Maa'idah 5:116-120].
