What do Muslims believe about Jesus / Prophet Eesa (AS)?

with one comment

1. We believe he had a miraculous birth

She said, “My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?” [The angel] said, “Such is Allah ; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is (Qur’an 3:47)

2. We believe he is one of the infants who spoke

So she pointed to him. They said, “How can we speak to one who is in the cradle a child?”. [Jesus] said, “Indeed, I am the servant of Allah . He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet. (Qur’an 19:29 – 30)

3. We believe he healed the born blind and lepers with the permission of Allah

[The Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, remember My favor upon you and upon your mother when I supported you with the Pure Spirit and you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity; and [remember] when I taught you writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and when you designed from clay [what was] like the form of a bird with My permission, then you breathed into it, and it became a bird with My permission; and you healed the blind and the leper with My permission; and when you brought forth the dead with My permission; and when I restrained the Children of Israel from [killing] you when you came to them with clear proofs and those who disbelieved among them said, “This is not but obvious magic.” (Qur’an 5:110)

4. We believe he is one of the five noble messengers

And [mention, O Muhammad (Sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam)], when We took from the prophets their covenant and from you and from Noah and Abraham and Moses and Jesus, the son of Mary; and We took from them a solemn covenant (Qur’an 33:7)

5. We believe he will return

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “By the One in Whose hand is my soul, soon the son of Maryam will descend among you [according to another report: the Hour will not begin until the son of Maryam descends among you] as a just judge. He will break the cross, kill the pigs and abolish the jizyah, and money will become abundant until no one will accept it” {Sahih Bukhari (2222) and Sahih Muslim (155)}

6. We believe he will die, and the Muslims will offer the funeral prayer for him

 Ahmad (9349) narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “I am the closest of people to ‘Eesa ibn Maryam because there was no Prophet between him and me…” Then he mentioned his descent at the end of time. Then he said: “And he will remain for as long as Allah wills he should remain, then he will die and the Muslims will offer the funeral prayer for him and bury him.” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah (2182)
