Abstract In view of the consideration found in the Qur'an and Islamic tradition for divine power and wisdom, as well as the importance they attach to faith and human reason, they categorically reject the death of Christ on the cross and insist instead that it was an appearance, a deceptive suggestion or even an event in which an impersonator or a disciple of Christ died on the cross. Many pillars of Quranic doctrine gravitate around the rejection of this soteriological reality, upon which the apostle Paul founded the trustworthiness of the Christian faith and the expectation of the resurrection and eternal life. Denying the death of Christ on the cross contributes to rendering more stable and certain the unity and unicity of Allah by negating the possibility that he be considered the Father and that Jesus be considered his son. These denials influence the trinitarian doctrine, stripping it of any objective doctrinal or reasonable foundation and consequently escluding the reality of the three hypostases or any role for the Paraclete.
