1- The Role of the Holy Spirit in Islam:

There are two roles that the Holy Spirit is responsible for according
to Islam:

1- It creates our "spirits." Allah Almighty uses it to blow into
our mothers' wombs our human-spirits. That is why abortion is
prohibited in Islam, because the fetus or foetus does have spirit
(life) and it is a human being. It's not just a little piece of
unliving flesh:

"But He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him
something of His Spirit. And He gave you (the faculties of) hearing
and sight and feeling (and understanding): little thanks do ye give!
(The Noble Quran, 32:9)"

"When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him
of My Spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him. (The Noble Quran,

"When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him
of My Spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him. (The Noble Quran,

"And (remember) her who guarded her chastity: We breathed into her of
Our Spirit, and We made her and her son a sign for all peoples. (The
Noble Quran, 21:91)"

"And Mary the daughter of 'Imran, who guarded her chastity; and We
breathed into (her body) of Our Spirit; and she testified to the truth
of the words of her Lord and of His Revelations, and was one of the
devout (servants). (The Noble Quran, 66:12)"

2- It is used to provide Divine Guidance to the Believers, those whom
Allah Almighty Loves and Favors. It's not just the Holy Spirit that
gives Guidance. Angels too give it:

"Raised high above ranks (or degrees), (He is) the Lord of the Throne
(of Authority): by His Command doth He send the Spirit (of
inspiration) to any of His servants he pleases, that it may warn (men)
of the Day of Mutual Meeting,- (The Noble Quran, 40:15)"

"Say, the Holy Spirit has brought the Revelation from thy Lord in
Truth, in order to strengthen those who believe, and as a Guide and
Glad Tidings to Muslims. (The Noble Quran, 16:102)"

"Thou wilt not find any people who believe in God and the Last Day,
loving those who resist God and His Apostle, even though they were
their fathers or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred. For
such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with
a Spirit from Himself. And He will admit them to Gardens beneath which
Rivers flow, to dwell therein (for ever). God will be well pleased
with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of God. Truly it is
the Party of God that will achieve Felicity. (The Noble Quran,

"Then will God say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Recount My favour to
thee and to thy mother. Behold! I strengthened thee with the Holy
Spirit, so that thou didst speak to the people in childhood and in
maturity. Behold! I taught thee the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the
Gospel and behold! thou makest out of clay, as it were, the figure of
a bird, by My leave, and thou breathest into it and it becometh a bird
by My leave, and thou healest those born blind, and the lepers, by My
leave. And behold! thou bringest forth the dead by My leave. And
behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence to) thee
when thou didst show them the clear Signs, and the unbelievers among
them said: 'This is nothing but evident magic.' (The Noble Quran,

So as you can see, Allah Almighty Created the Holy Spirit for specific
functions not only on this earth, but also perhaps else where in the
Universe where we don't know about. But it is in no way GOD Almighty

2- The Role of the Holy Spirit in the Bible:

The Bible is similar to the Noble Quran regarding the role of the Holy
Spirit. It never claimed that the Holy Spirit is GOD Almighty
Himself. In section 4 below, you will see some of the types of the
Holy Spirit, or Spirit, that GOD Almighty Created for Mankind. But
for now, let us see what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit:

"When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face
of the earth. (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 104:30)"

"Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your
presence? (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 139:7)"

"Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit
lead me on level ground. (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 143:10)"

So far, these verses are talking about the Spirit from GOD Almighty.
The first verse above, Psalm 104:30, perfectly agrees with the Noble
Verses above about GOD Almighty Blowing His Spirit into our mothers'
wombs when we're fetus.

So does this now mean that the Holy Spirit, in the Bible, is part of
GOD Almighty?

Absolutely not! The Bible is filled with figurative speech. I've
written a detailed article proving this using many examples. The Holy
Spirit mentioned above is a creation from GOD Almighty. It's purpose
is to create our spirits as mentioned in Psalm 104:30. Another
purpose for the Holy Spirit is to Guide the Believers:

1 Samuel 18:10 "The next day an evil spirit from God came forcefully
upon Saul. He was prophesying in his house, while David was playing
the harp, as he usually did. Saul had a spear in his hand..." GOD
Almighty has an evil spirit? Obviously not, it's only metaphoric as
mentioned above.

1 Samuel 19:9 "But an evil spirit from the LORD came upon Saul as he
was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand. While David was
playing the harp,..." ANOTHER EVIL SPIRIT FROM GOD?!

1 Kings 22:22 " 'By what means?' the LORD asked. " 'I will go out and
be a LYING spirit in the mouths of all his prophets,' he said. " 'You
will succeed in enticing him,' said the LORD. 'Go and do it.'

1 Kings 22:23 "So now the LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouths of
all these prophets of yours. The LORD has decreed disaster for you."

2 Chronicles 18:21 " 'I will go and be a lying spirit in the mouths of
all his prophets,' he said. " 'You will succeed in enticing him,' said
the LORD. 'Go and do it.'

Numbers 24:2 "When Balaam looked out and saw Israel encamped tribe by
tribe, the Spirit of God came upon him"

Judges 3:10 "The Spirit of the LORD came upon him, so that he became
Israel's judge and went to war. The LORD gave Cushan-Rishathaim king
of Aram into
the hands of Othniel, who overpowered him."

Judges 6:34 "Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Gideon, and he blew
a trumpet, summoning the Abiezrites to follow him."

Judges 11:29 "Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah. He
crossed Gilead and Manasseh, passed through Mizpah of Gilead, and from
there he advanced against the Ammonites."

Judges 14:6 "The Spirit of the LORD came upon him in power so that he
tore the lion apart with his bare hands as he might have torn a young
goat. But he told
neither his father nor his mother what he had done."

Judges 14:19 "Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon him in power. He
went down to Ashkelon, struck down thirty of their men, stripped them
of their belongings and gave their clothes to those who had explained
the riddle. Burning with anger, he went up to his father's house."

Judges 15:14 "As he approached Lehi, the Philistines came toward him
shouting. The Spirit of the LORD came upon him in power. The ropes on
his arms became like charred flax, and the bindings dropped from his

1 Samuel 10:6 "The Spirit of the LORD will come upon you in power, and
you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different

1 Samuel 10:10 "When they arrived at Gibeah, a procession of prophets
met him; the Spirit of God came upon him in power, and he joined in
their prophesying."

1 Samuel 11:6 "When Saul heard their words, the Spirit of God came
upon him in power, and he burned with anger."

1 Samuel 16:13 "So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the
presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the LORD
came upon David in power. Samuel then went to Ramah."

Luke 1:35 "The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you
(Mary), and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the
holy one to be born will be called the Son of God."

Luke 2:25 "Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was
righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel,
and the Holy Spirit was upon him."

There are, as I mentioned, several types of this Spirit as mentioned
in section 4 below.

So if Jesus is GOD because the Holy Spirit came upon him, then the
others mentioned above should also be GOD Almighty too.

3- The Holy Spirit is a Creation of GOD Almighty and it is under Him
just like the Angels according to the Noble Quran:

Allah Almighty Said:

"The Day that the Spirit and the Angels will stand forth in ranks,
none shall speak except any who is permitted by (God) Most Gracious,
and He will say what is right. (The Noble Quran, 78:3Cool"

"A questioner asked about a Penalty to befall- The Unbelievers, the
which there is none to ward off,- (A Penalty) from God, Lord of the
Ways of Ascent. The Angels and the Spirit ascend unto Him in a Day the
measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years: Therefore do thou hold
Patience,- a Patience of beautiful (contentment). (The Noble Quran,

"Therein come down the Angels and the Spirit by God's permission, on
every errand: (The Noble Quran, 97:4)"

"Not one of the beings in the heavens and the earth but must come to
God) Most Gracious as a servant. He does take an account of them
(all), and hath numbered them (all) exactly. And everyone of them will
come to Him singly on the Day of Judgment. On those who believe and
work deeds of righteousness, will (God) Most Gracious bestow love.
(The Noble Quran, 19:93-96)"

These Noble Verse are the Ultimate knock out to the polytheist
trinitarian pagans who are trying, through their absurd writings, to
prove that the Holy Spirit in the Noble Quran is the other part of
Allah Almighty; that he is at least a dual GOD if not a triune one.

As you clearly see from these Noble Verses and the ones above in the
beginning of the article, trinity and plurality of GOD Almighty is
blasphemy! So dear Muslim brothers and sisters, please be cautious
from these satanic deceivers and their new tricks and desperate false
interpretations of the Noble Quran.

4- Why can't we call it GOD as trinitarians do?

First of all, it is important to know that satan's biggest lie,
trinity, is only an interpretation and a conclusion. There is not a
single text in the Bible that says the Holy Spirit is GOD Almighty,
nor does that satanic word, trinity, even exist in the Bible. People
during Constantine's days around year 325, because they were and still
are naturally inclined to idol worship, polytheism and paganism as the
Far Eastern religions are today, they decided to consider Jesus and
the Holy Spirit as GOD Almighty. Satan's deception and evil is
overwhelming and powerful. It is no surprise that people fell for
this lie by the billions throughout history, as many more billions had
fell for satan's lies in the Far Eastern pagan religions. Trinity,
like I said, doesn't even exist in the bible. The word doesn't exist
anywhere in the book, nor do we have any text that says Jesus is the
Creator of the Universe. The same also goes for the Holy Spirit.

The reason why Muslims don't call the Holy Spirit as GOD Almighty is
because it is just a creation of GOD Almighty with specific and
limited duties as I clearly demonstrated above from the Noble Quran.
Like the Angels and the other Universal Spirits, the Holy Spirit is
unknown to us and we can't fully describe it. But nonetheless, this
doesn't give anyone the right to start getting colorful and smart and
deceive the weak-minded and call it and other creations as GOD

I have a long and detailed section that refutes the lie of trinity
from the Bible. It's best if you read it and see the Truth for

Also, it seems clear that the Bible has several types of Universal
Spirits, or Holy Spirits. For instance, we see a prediction about the
"Spirit of Fearing GOD" being installed in the coming Prophet, Jesus:

Isaiah 11:1-3
1. A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a
Branch will bear fruit.
2. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him (Jesus)-- the Spirit of
wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the
Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD (Jesus fearing his
3. and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by
what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears;

As we see in Isaiah 11:1-3, there is:

1- Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding.

2- Spirit of Counsel and of power.

3- Spirit of Knowledge.

4- Spirit of the fear of the LORD.

Also, the verses above say "and he will delight in the fear of the
LORD", which clearly proves that Jesus is under GOD Almighty and can
not be equivalent to Him or part of Him, because GOD Almighty has no
fear in Him. He Created fear, or the Spirit of Fear, and He installs
it on whom ever He pleases. But He Himself doesn't have that Spirit
in Him!

The verses above also say "He will not judge by what he sees with his
eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears;...", which further
proves that Jesus is not part of GOD Almighty, because GOD Almighty
Speaks and Hears whatever He Pleases!

The Bible's New Testament also records Jesus saying: ""Why do you call
me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good–except God alone." (From
the NIV Bible, Mark 10:1Cool"

If Jesus doesn't consider himself as "good", then how can any sane
person put him on the same level as GOD Almighty?

I have yet to see a good answer to this one by any polytheist

Also, another important point to notice in Mark 10:18 is the word
"alone": ""Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good–
except God alone." (From the NIV Bible, Mark 10:1Cool"

Jesus in this verse is clearly giving exclusivity to GOD Almighty when
he said "alone". If Jesus was truly part of GOD Almighty and/or the
trinity lie was true, then Jesus, to say the least, would not have
said that.
