Welcome to muslimslovejesus.com, a site developed by the Islamic Center of Irving Outreach Center, where you can learn about Jesus (peace be upon him) from an Islamic perspective.
Although it is not well known, Muslims love and respect Jesus, who is regarded as of God’s great prophets, sent to mankind to convey the message for all to worship the one, true God.
ONE OF THE UNIQUE ATTRIBUTES OF JESUS, ALTHOUGH NOT OFTEN WELL KNOWN BY NON-MUSLIMS, IS THAT HE WILL RETURN AND THAT HE COMING WILL BE THE ONE OF THE SIGNS OF THE LAST HOUR, (approaching of the Day of Judgment), as the Qur’an states,
And he shall be a sign of the Hour. Therefore have no doubt about the Hour, but follow Me. That is the straight path.
In the midst of mass warfare on the earth, he will come to defeat the anti-Christ (referred to as ‘ad-dajjal’ in Islamic terminology, meaning the ‘false messiah’), thus restoring peace on earth and bringing about the unity of all humans under the banner of worshipping the one true God.
The details of Jesus’ time and actions on earth are detailed extensively in the hadith (or narration of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him):
Jesus will descend. If you see him, then know him. He is a man of a moderately ruddy complexion. He will be wearing two faintly yellow garments. His hair will seem to have drops of water upon it, even though it will not be wet.
He will strive with the people for Islam. He will break the cross, kill the swine, and abolish the poll-tax. Allah will make all sects to come to an end during his time except Islam, and Allah will cause the Antichrist to perish.
Jesus will live for forty years, and then he shall die. The Muslims will conduct his (funeral) prayer and bury him.
