π Islam also has its own views on Jesus. Islam recognizes Jesus' existence and likewise recognizes him as a prophet and the savior. However, where Christianity teaches about the Holy Trinity, Islam teaches that there is only one God, and only one form of God. In fact, this is stated clearly in the Islamic creed. "There is no god but God, and Muhammad is the Messenger of God." There is one God, and one God only.

π Islam recognizes Jesus as a messenger sent by God/Allah to spread his word. Like Christianity, Islam also teaches that Jesus was born to Mary though immaculate conception. However, Islam denies the idea that Jesus is the son of God or a god-man, since Islam denies the existence of the Holy Trinity and believes Allah to be one divine figure. “In blasphemy indeed are those that say that God is Christ the son of Mary. Say: "Who then hath the least power against God, if His will were to destroy Christ the son of Mary, his mother, and all every - one that is on the earth? For to God belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between. He createth what He pleaseth. For God hath power over all things.” (Qur'an 5:17).

π Muslims do believe, however, that Jesus was gifted with divine powers and the ability to perform miracles, and that he was sent by Allah himself. In the Qur'an, Jesus performs feats such as speaking while in his cradle, breathing life into clay models of birds, healing a blind man, curing a leper, raising a man from the dead, and so on. He had also performed several of these feats in the Bible. In the Qur'an, Jesus is referred by such things as "The Messiah" or "The Anointed One." According to the Qur'an, he was the one who opened the gates to heaven, centuries before Muhammed was born.

π “That they said in boast, "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of God";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no certain knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:- Nay, God raised him up unto the himself; and God is Exalted in Power, Wise.” This is a rather interesting difference between Christianity and Islam. In Christianity, Jesus was beaten, crucified, and killed. In Islam, Allah ascended Jesus to heaven alive. Muslims have varying opinions about this; some believe that Jesus was replaced with a double and he was crucified instead. Some people believe Jesus was replaced with Judas Iscariot or Simon, the man who carried the cross for Jesus.

π The second coming of Jesus is also foretold in Islam; “And Jesus shall be a Sign for the coming of the Hour of Judgment: therefore have no doubt about the Hour, but follow ye Me: this is a Straight Way." (Qur'an 43:61). It is said that he will slay the Anti-Christ, and the "people of the book" (followers of Christianity and Judaism) will believe in Allah, and Islam will be the one, true religion.
