Jesus In Quran

What does the Quran say about the birth of Jesus?
What does the Quran say about the life and miracles of Jesus?
What does the Quran say about the Second coming of Jesus?

Read the verses in the Quran about Jesus and his mother Mary, and discover what the Muslims believe about them.

JESUS IS A UNIQUE FIGURE IN HUMAN HISTORY. His words and deeds inspire many, and his life continues to fascinate and raise questions. So, it comes as no surprise that The Quran, the Muslim Scripture, has a lot to say about Jesus and his mother. The Quran tells the story of the conception and birth of Jesus and the difficulty Mary went through; it affirms Jesus' many miracles, summarizes his mission and call to God, refers to and praises the disciples, discusses the plot to kill Jesus and his ascension, and alludes to his expected second coming. In fact, Jesus and his mother, Mary, are two of the main figures in The Quran, presented as examples for all to follow.

To introduce the reader to Jesus in The Quran, relevant verses have been collected without neglect of context. Then several translations were consulted, mainly The Noble Quran by Hilali & Khan, and The Quran by Saheeh International, but also Yusuf Ali, Pickthal, and Shakir. Then, several Arabic commentaries on the Quran helped revise the translation to provide better understanding of the verses and a smoother translation from the original Arabic. These commentaries are the source of what is in brackets within the translation. Finally and where necessary, footnotes were added for further clarification.

The reader will find the title of the chapters of the Quran in bold, followed by the verses. The chapters of the Quran are not arranged chronologically, so the Quran does not read like a history book. Rather, many events are repeated in various chapters in the Quran for their morals and lessons, or to affirm a point or bring a new one to light. Also, verses only relevant to Jesus have been collected, so the reader might feel disconnected from the chapter. If so, we recommend reading the whole chapter for the full meaning.
