likeness of ‘Jesus in God’s
sight is the same as Adam. He created him
from earth and then He said to him,‘Be!’
and he was. It is the truth from your Lord
so do not be among the doubters. (Qur’an,
hope that this book will resolve the doubts of
all people who are confused about Jesus (pbuh),
will help believers acquire a better understanding
of his role, and enable Muslims to feel the joy
and excitement of his return.
Finally, another important subject
we wish to consider is how believers will recognize
Jesus (pbuh) when he returns. This is essential,
because false Messiahs will also appear. Some
people hesitate to raise the matter of Jesus'
(pbuh) return out of a mistaken belief that this
will prepare the way for false Messiahs. In reality,
the appearance of such imposters is a major sign
of the second coming. (See Harun Yahya,
The Signs of Jesus' [pbuh] Second Coming).
More importantly, everything he does after his
return will be wise and inimitable, and such acts
will distinguish him from all other people. One
of the clearest proofs that the other "Messiahs"
are false is the way they seek to prove themselves.
Another major feature that distinguishes
Jesus (pbuh) from false Messiahs is that he will
have no relatives, and that no person will be
familiar with his physical features, countenance,
or tone of voice. No one will be able to claim:
"I knew him before, I saw him at such and such
a time, his family and relatives are so and so,"
since everyone who knew him died many centuries
ago. Mary, Zechariah, the Disciples who spent
years with him, the leading Jews of his time,
and those who received the message from him in
person are all dead and gone. Therefore, Jesus
(pbuh) will be completely unknown to the general
This will eliminate the danger
of false Messiahs. On Jesus' (pbuh) return, no
situation will arise to cause people to doubt
who he really is. Nobody will have any reason
to say: "This person cannot be Jesus (pbuh),"
for he will return to Earth in the same state,
wearing the same clothes as when he was raised
to God's presence, and will possess superior features
that nobody will be able to imitate. (God knows
All of this is an important reminder
that sincere believers should consider this issue
and make the necessary material and spiritual
preparations by listening to their consciences.
Those who heed this reminder may hope to achieve
the honor of being this great individual's helpmates
and supporters when he returns, as revealed by
our beloved Prophet (may God bless him and grant
him peace). This should be the prayer of all faithful
