For us Muslims, Jesus’ (pbuh) second coming is of utmost importance. Born as a miracle of God, he invited the Israelites to the righteous path, performed many miracles in their presence, and is the Messiah and God’s word (Qur’an, 4:171). When he returns, the differences between Christians and Muslims, who actually share the same values and have the same belief in God, will be resolved. According to the Qur’an, Christians are the closest to Muslims in terms of affection. Once their differences have been resolved, Muslims and Christians will unite, and the Jews will believe in Jesus (pbuh) and find enlightenment (Qur’an, 4:159).
Thus, these three divinely revealed religions will merge into one religion based on belief in God and obedience to Jesus (pbuh), and will then ideologically defeat all anti-religion philosophies and idolatry, thus finally ridding the world of war, conflict, racism, ethnic hostility, tyranny, and injustice. People will live in a golden age of peace, happiness, and tranquility.
This will be one of the most significant events in world history. The merger of the three divinely revealed religions will mean that both North and South America, Europe, the Islamic world, Africa, Russia, and Israel will form an alliance under a common religion, something that has never been witnessed before.
Jesus’ second coming is one of the greatest miracles in human history. God’s chosen Prophets, by His will, performed various miracles. By His grace, 2,000 years ago in Palestine Jesus (pbuh) revived the dead, cured lepers and the blind, and gave life to lifeless objects (Qur’an, 5:110), all by God’s will.
It will be a great miracle to witness Jesus’ (pbuh) return to begin life once again without parents and as an adult. He will also perform new miracles so that existing materialist philosophies, already weakened to the point of collapse on a scientific as well as philosophical level, will be destroyed. People will see clear proof of God’s existence and might.
Based on the signs revealed in the Qur’an and the hadiths, as well as the scholars’ opinion, we believe that this event is imminent. We Muslims are excited about this and are doing everything we can to prepare ourselves and the world for the arrival of this celebrated guest. We call on Christians to be sensitive, conscientious, and passionate about this too.
