Speculations about Jesus’s Return

Speculations about Jesus’s Return

(p.71) Five Speculations about Jesus’s Return
Islam's Jesus

Zeki Saritoprak

University Press of Florida

This chapter focuses on a number of themes found in the Hadith that have been prevalent in commentaries by Islamic scholars. The chapter includes both reliable Hadith as well as certain speculations about the time and place of Jesus's return, His physical appearance, His prayer behind the Muslim leader, His relation to Islamic law, His followers, and His death. The chapter emphasizes that, in presenting these themes, the Hadith are ambiguous and must be skilfully interpreted for their theological import. However, the historical treatments of these themes do paint a clear picture of Islam's Jesus. He is a helper, a rescuer, and a bringer of justice.

Keywords:   Hadith, Jesus, Jesus's return, Islamic law, prayer, interpretation, rescuer, bringer of justice
