Quran verse: What does Islam say about trinity?


Does Quran mention trinity? I have mentioned a verse below which talks about Islamic view on trinity (a Christian belief - Father, son and holy spirit). 

What does Islam say about trinity? Islam has strictly propagated the idea of oneness of God (Allah) and there are several verses in Quran that directly and indirectly refute claims that God can beget a son. It is the most fundamental principal of Islam. 

Surah Al Nisa - Verse 171

"The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, "Three" (trinity); desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs."
