While this reader is loathe to interfere in the exchange of epithets of the previous post, there was a question raised that begged being asked.

The reason one might change from the teachings in Hebrew of the attributes of Elohim, is it because of verses that explain the multiple attributes like in Isaiah 9:6, "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 9:7) Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. 9:8 )The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel."

Of whom it is asked, from a Muslim perspective, might this reference to a 'Son' apply, or are we to expect that this is a reason for someone that was originally schooled in things Hebrew to find some fault like the Islamic Prophet tried to do and determined further to find cause for unbelief in the Hebrew Holy Scriptures to underscore the lack of faith?
