In Our eyes they are among the best of chosen men. (Surah Sad: 47)
We gave knowledge to Dawud and Sulayman who said, ‘Praise be to Allah who has favoured us over many of His slaves who are believers…’ (Surat an-Naml: 15)
Jesus (as) is also one of the chosen prophets of Allah. Allah states the following about him:
These Messengers: We favoured some of them over others. Allah spoke directly to some of them and raised up some of them in rank. We gave clear Signs to ‘Isa, son of Maryam, and reinforced him with the Purest Spirit. (Surat al-Baqarah: 253) 2. He will be recognised by the expression on his face which is only seen in Prophets
Allah informs us in the Qur'an that the superiority of those whom He has chosen can be in terms of their knowledge and as well as that in terms of physical strength:
...He said, "Allah has chosen him over you and favoured him greatly in knowledge and physical strength. Allah gives kingship to anyone He wills. Allah is All Encompassing, All-Knowing. (Surat al-Baqarah: 247)
Granted with wisdom, physical strength, knowledge and perfection of character, Jesus (as) will have a facial expression only seen in prophets. His strong fear of Allah and the light of his steadfast faith will all be apparent in his face. This expression on his face will at once distinguish him from others and people who see him will immediately notice that they are meeting someone quite superior. Surely, not everyone will agree with this. Out of rage and pride, it is likely that some people will disregard this superiority. Despite feeling it deep inside, they may feign ignorance, perceiving his presence as a threat to their existence. Only those having sincere faith will comprehend this superiority and have an appreciation of it.
Allah informs us that Jesus (as) is "of high esteem in the world and the hereafter, and one of those brought near…"(Surah Al ‘Imran: 45) Thus, Jesus (as) will be known to those people surrounding him for the honour and excellence only seen in those chosen by Allah.
