The Church holds that Jesus was the "Only Begotten Son" of God, and also God Himself, since the doctrine of Trinity considers God as Son, as the Father,and as the "Holy Ghost" all at the same time! Catholics go even further and say that Mary is the "Mother of God". Of course, Muslims totally reject these facts; it is committing Shirk (association with Allah). We know that God has no father, mother, daughter, or son. He is Self-Capable. There are many instances in the Quran where Allah refutes the claim of the non-believers.

Here are several verses regarding this:

"And they say: Allah has taken to Himself a son. Be He glorified! No! But whatever is in the heavens and the earth is His, and all surrender with obedience(in worship) to Him. The Originator of the heavens and the earth! When He decrees a thing. He says to is only: Be! and it is." (2:116-117)

"And they say: The Most Gracious (Allah) has begotten a son. Indeed you have brought forth a terrible evil thing and whereby the heavens are almost torn, and the earth is split asunder, and the mountains fall in ruins, that they ascribe a son to the Most Gracious (Allah). But it is not suitable for the Most Gracious that He should beget a son. There is none in the heavens and the earth but comes unto the Most Gracious as a servant"
(19:88-93)

Muslims believe that the virgin birth of Jesus without a father was not anymore supernatural than the creation of Adam without a father or
mother. The Quran says:

"Truly the likeness of Jesus, in God’s Sight, is as Adam’s likeness; He created him of dust, then said He unto him, "Be", and he was." (3:59)

The Quran rejects the Concept of Trinity as strongly as it rejects the sonship of Jesus. This is because God is One. This is the basis of all
monotheistic religions. Three, obviously by mathematics and by reason, is not one. Allah says:

"Oh people of the Book! Do not exceed the limits in your religion, nor say of Allah aught but the truth. The Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, was (no more than) a Messenger of Allah and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary and a Spirit created by Him; so believe in Allah and His Messengers. Say not: Trinity! Cease!(it is) better for you. For Allah is (the only) One God,glory is to Him (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belongs allthat is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is All-Sufficient as a Disposer of affairs." (4:171-173)

On the Day of Judgment, Jesus will state that he always taught the worship of One God. This is best described by the following verses

"And (remember) when Allah will say (on the Day of Judgment): O Jesus, son of Mary! Did you say unto men:‘Worship me and my mother as two gods beside Allah?’ He will say: "Glory is 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. Never did I say to them aught except what You(Allah) did command me to say:‘Worship Allah, 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 aWitness to all things." (5:116-117)
