Shirk literally means partnership, sharing or associating,2 but Islamically it refers to the act of assigning partners to Allaah in whatever form it may take.

 An Introduction to Islamic Monotheism
There are two kinds of shirk that negate it, which are the deification of human beings and the humanization of God.

Outward shirk involves offering outward forms of worship to other than God, for instance, praying to Zeus or Shiva (or to Jesus, for that matter), or intending actions in their name, or obeying their commandments instead of God's.

In the Qur'an, to practise idolatry is to associate any other being, any other person, or concept with Allah, considering them to be equal to Allah, and to act upon this unsound belief.

 The Qur'an in the Light of God-breathed Scripture: Shirk, Surah 4:48 - Pros Apologian
One of the greatest stumbling blocks to communicating the gospel of grace to the Muslim is "designed into the system" itself through the fact that Mohammed did not understand the Christian doctrine of the Trinity.
Imagine for a moment how effective this roadblock truly is. From the point of your earliest memories you have been told that the Trinity is tri-theistic, and that to worship in such a fashion is to commit the most horrible and unforgivable sin imaginable!
And so when that Christian missionary speaks to you about "the Lord Jesus Christ" all you can hear is "idolatry, IDOLATRY, SHIRK!!!" I saw this with startling clarity in the debate in 1999 against Hamza Abdul Malik: there was a wall between me and the Muslims in the audience.

 Does Allah forgive shirk?
I suppose a Muslim could say that God abrogated his previous approach of granting forgiveness of idolatry but now does no longer forgive it.
This would be utterly unworthy of God, who is eternally the same and as the All-wise does not need change his laws because he is surprised by new developments.
On the other hand, we can even find a general statement about the forgiveness of shirk, since Sura 25:68-71 speaks about people who worship gods other than God and when they repent, believe, and work righteousness then God not only forgives them but He even substitutes their sins (sayyi'aat) with righteouss credit (hasannat).

The First Pillar of their faith, repeated daily in prayers, is "There is no God but God and Muhammed is the messenger of God." The greatest sin for a Muslim, comparable to idolatry for a Jew or Christian, is "shirk," which means associating something with God.

 The Islamic World to 1600: Islamic Beginnings (Islamic Beliefs and Practices)
Islam is strictly monotheistic, believing that there is only one God, omnipotent and merciful, and that associating any human being or image with God is an unforgivable sin.
