Muhammad claimed that he was "given the right of intercession":

Bukhari B7, #331 Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah: the Prophet said, "I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me. 1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey. 2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due. 3. the booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. 4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection). 5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.

Sahih Muslim B30, #5655: Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: I shall be pre-eminent amongst the descendants of Adam on the Day of Resurrection and I will be the first intercessor and the first whose intercession will be accepted (by Allah).

So Muhammad's "Allah", "Allah's" spirit, and "Allah's" intercessor, Muhammad, suggest a parallel trinity.

However scripture informs us that Jesus is our intercessor, just as was prophesied in the Old Testament (covenant):

Isaiah 53:12 .....because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

As confirmed in the New Testament:

Hebrews 7:24 But this [man], because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

Our one mediator:

1Timothy 2:5 For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man

John 5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
Which Trinity does your eternal life depend on? (URL)

Which trinity does your eternal life depend on? That of the one true God of love of the Jews and Christians, as revealed through ALL of His prophets and witnesses in His 1600 year record of revelation to mankind, that His people have followed through two covenants for 3500 years?

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

A record that is well supported by history, archaeology and fulfilled prophecy, that is consistent with the physical geography, and can even be confirmed mathematically.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Or does your eternal life depend on the imitation trinity of Muhammad alone, through a scripture-contrary, pre-Muhammad history-devoid, archaeology-absent, geographically-impossible Islamic "tradition" - that poses as thousands of years of pre-Muhammad history, yet was all penned in the 7th to 10th centuries AD, without reference to any actual historical record that preceded the 6th century AD?

1John 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

When you pass from this earth to your next life, who will you be depending on, to intercede for you? The sinless Messiah, the Lamb of God, the prophesied Prince of Peace?

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22  Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Our prophesied intercessor:

Isaiah 53:12 .....he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Our one mediator who saves all from sin who have faith in His shed blood:

Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

Or is your intercessor Muhammad?

Bukhari B7, #331 .....the Prophet said.....I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).

As he is revealed through Islam's own books:

Bukhari V4 B52 #261 ....they were brought, and he had their hands and feet cut off. Then he ordered for nails which were heated and passed over their eyes, and they were left in the Harra (i.e. rocky land in Medina).
Who is the Author of Your Salvation? (URL)

A self-proclaimed "messenger", and self-proclaimed intercessor, who had no idea what would be done you or himself?

Quran Surah 46:9 Say: "I am no bringer of new-fangled doctrine among the messengers, nor do I know what will be done with me or with you. I follow but that which is revealed to me by inspiration; I am but a Warner open and clear."

Or Jesus, who saves all from dying in sin, that have faith in His shed blood:

Romans 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
