This contention of theological observances presumed by Islamic thought as debated in 2008 and following years came back for this observer when recently the topic heading 'trinity' resurfaced; and once again, the ages old arguments of whether monotheistic religions versus polytheistic ones were supported by the two main contenders of perfected worship of the One True LORD, either by testimony of the voice of the Judeo-Christian/Messianic Savior, or the later voice of Islam's Muhammad, that religion's prophet.
All one need do is return to this topic heading to revisit those exchanges, which, for the record resolved nothing either ancient nether new: the record for each still waiting for the final conclusion.
From the Christian Messianic perspective, the Savior was put to death for claiming He and the Father are One, pointing to the Holy One of Israel in Isaiah 49, et al. There's a reason that the word 'trinity' does not appear, commencing from Genesis to the Revelation, the witness of which comes from the Holy One of Israel Himself.
From the Islamic perspective, is there the similar stance that Muslims can definitively quote? As the Quran tried in an attempt to define such a circumstance, it could not make that determination for its own good. The reason for that is the same: it does not know.
When does it get revealed? That answer has not yet been provided, nor proved in mortal human terms. In the meantime, faith is required to even ask the question and have an expectation of that answer. It is an answer that requires believing the Truth.
