A New Perspective on Islamic Thought
Of all the major religions in the world, Islam is the only non-Christian faith that recognises Isa. Within the pages of the Qur'an is a distinctly Islamic portrayal of Isa. Three of its Surahs (chapters), Al-Imran, Al-Maida and Mariam are so named because of their references to Isa and his work.
There are about ninety verses spread across fifteen Surahs of the Qur'an that refer to Isa. A second source for the Islamic understanding of Isa are the numerous Ahadith (traditions) which portray his teaching and the ultimate purpose of his first and second coming. There are also many references to Isa in other Islamic literature.
