What does Islam teach about Isa coming back?

One thing that both Muslims and  Christians have in common is that we  both believe that Jesus is coming back  to earth again.

Yes, Christians also believe that Jesus  is coming back to earth again. After Jesus ascended into heaven, angels  appeared to the disciples and said “This same Jesus, who has been taken from  you into heaven,  will come back in the same way you have  seen him go into heaven.” (Acts 1:11)

The Quran says: In him (i.e. Allah)  alone has vested the knowledge of when  the last hour will come. (Surah 31:34) There is another verse in the Quran in  which Jesus says “And surely when he (i.e. Isa) descends from heaven, he will  be a sign of the nearness of  the last hour, so do not doubt it at all  and keep following me. This is the  straight path.” (Surah 43:61) 

What do Muslims believe Jesus will do  when he comes to the world a second time?

Muslims believe that when Jesus returns  to earth, he will kill the Dajjal.

Who is the Dajjal?

The Dajjal is the  ultimate evil force in Islam. The word “dajjal” means “antichrist” or  “someone who opposes the Messiah”. The Prophet Muhammad warned his  followers against the dajjal and  himself prayed to God for protection  against the dajjal. O Allah, I seek refuge with you from the  torment of hell,  from the torment of the grave, from the  trials of life and death,  and from the evil of the fitnah of the  dajjal. (Sahih Muslim 589, Book 5, Hadith 163)

The bible also mentions the  evil one as someone who opposes Christ. When Jesus was on earth, the devil tried  to tempt him to sin.  Jesus commanded the devil “Away from me,  satan”  and the devil left him. (Matt 4:10-11)

Will Jesus also  destroy the antichrist when he comes to  earth again?

Yes, the bible says “And then the lawless  one (referring to the antichrist) will be  revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will  overthrow with the breath of his mouth  and destroy by the splendor of his  coming.” (2 Thess 2:18)

Did Jesus also teach his disciples to  pray for protection against the devil?

Jesus taught his disciples to pray that  God will deliver them from the evil one (Matt 6:13). When he was on earth, he demonstrated his  power over evil spirits and people were  amazed that even the evil spirits obeyed  him.

Which incident were you referring to?

One day when Jesus was at the synagogue,  the bible says that just then a man in  their synagogue who was possessed by an  impure spirit cried out “What do you want  with us,  Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to  destroy us? I know who you are: the holy one of God.” “Be quiet” said Jesus sternly, “Come out of  him”. The impure spirit shook the man  violently and came out of him with a  shriek. The people were all so amazed  that they asked each other “What is this? He even gives orders to  impure spirits and they obey him.” (Mark 1:21-27)

Did Jesus’ disciples also possess this  authority over evil spirits?

Jesus taught his disciples to come  against the devil using his name. “And these signs shall follow them that  believe. In my name shall they cast out  devils.” (Mark 16:17)

That’s right. Today’s discussion has been  interesting.  I will come back to you if I have any  questions.
