In this section, we will examine the details regarding the second coming of Jesus (as) provided in the most reliable sources. The first of these sources is definitely the Qur'an, the unaltered Speech of Allah, as expressed in the Qur’an, "No one can change His words."(Surat al-An’am 115), and the second is the Sunnah of the Last Messenger of Allah, Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. The Qur'an provides detailed information about many stages of Jesus' (as) life including his birth, his being raised to the presence of Allah, his second coming and his death.
Jesus (as), who lived 2000 years ago, is a blessed messenger of Allah. He is of high esteem both in this world and the hereafter, as the Qur'an informs us. The true religion brought by him remains today, albeit merely in name. That is because, the original teaching communicated by Jesus (as) is distorted today. The book Allah revealed to Jesus (as), too, remains in our day only in name. Today, the original text of this book is not available. Christian sources have undergone various alterations and distortions. Consequently today, it is unlikely that we can obtain true knowledge regarding Jesus (as) from Christian sources.
The only sources from which we can have accurate knowledge about Jesus (as) are the Qur'an, the book Allah assures He will keep unchanged until the Day of Judgement, and the Sunnah of His Messenger Muhammad (saas). In the Qur'an, Allah gives an account of the birth and life of Jesus (as), some incidents he met in his life, the people surrounding him and many other subjects related to him. Furthermore, the Qur'anic verses also inform us about the life of Maryam before she gave birth to Jesus (as), how she became pregnant in a miraculous way and the reactions of the people surrounding her to this incident. Moreover, Allah gives the good tidings that Jesus (as) will come to earth for a second time in the end times. In this section, you will find some of the information given in the Qur'an about Jesus (as).
