"As some of those who believe (i.e. Muslims) and Jews have thought of Christians badly, by tying them with polytheism and disbelief in the things they believe in, [...] we felt compelled to explain in this book the number of things that they consider repugnant among the statements of Christians, bearing evidence on their need and credibility, among them their affirmation that God is one in three persons, Christ is the son of God, taking the cross as direction in their churches, convents and places of worship, and bowing before it and venerating it"

(from the introduction of The pearls of utility on the foundations of religion and articles of faith «Kitāb farāʾid al-fawāʾid fī uṣūl al-dīn wa-l-ʿaqāʾid»)
