Jesus is a well-known figure throughout the world. In Islam, he is considered the Messiah and a messenger of Allah. Other faiths and societies have different beliefs. It’s hard to find what’s true about him without information literacy. There is a lot of history regarding him which we covered here in ourPeople in the Quran series. This article though will try to cite all Quranic verses that refer to Jesus in order (as shown in the Quran, not in revelation order). This is to get a factual grounding on him as Muslims believe the Quran is the word of God.
From the Quran
1. Indeed, We gave Moses the Book and sent after him successive messengers. And We gave Jesus, son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the holy spirit. Why is it that every time a messenger comes to you ˹Israelites˺ with something you do not like, you become arrogant, rejecting some and killing others?[Surah Al-Baqarah; 2:87]
2. Say, O believers, “We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us; and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and his descendants; and what was given to Moses, Jesus, and other prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them. And to Allah we all submit.”[Surah Al-Baqarah; 2:136]
3. We have chosen some of those messengers above others. Allah spoke directly to some, and raised some high in rank. To Jesus, son of Mary, We gave clear proofs and supported him with the holy spirit. If Allah had willed, succeeding generations would not have fought among themselves after receiving the clear proofs. But they differed—some believed while others disbelieved. Yet if Allah had willed, they would not have fought one another. But Allah does what He wills.[Surah Al-Baqarah; 2:253]
4. Remember when the angels proclaimed, “O Mary! Allah gives you good news of a Word from Him, his name will be the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary; honoured in this world and the Hereafter, and he will be one of those nearest to Allah.[Surah Ali-Imran; 3:45]
5. When Jesus sensed disbelief from his people, he asked, “Who will stand up with me for Allah?” The disciples replied, “We will stand up for Allah. We believe in Allah, so bear witness that we have submitted.”[Surah Ali-Imran; 3:52]
6. Remember when Allah said, “O Jesus! I will take you and raise you up to Myself. I will deliver you from those who disbelieve, and elevate your followers above the disbelievers until the Day of Judgment. Then to Me you will ˹all˺ return, and I will settle all your disputes.[Surah Ali-Imran; 3:55]
7. Indeed, the example of Jesus in the sight of Allah is like that of Adam. He created him from dust, then said to him, “Be!” And he was![Surah Ali-Imran; 3:59]
8. Say, O Prophet, “We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and his descendants; and what was given to Moses, Jesus, and other prophets from their Lord—we make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we fully submit”.[Surah Ali-Imran; 3:84]
9. …and for boasting, “We killed the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, the messenger of Allah.” But they neither killed nor crucified him—it was only made to appear so. Even those who argue for this crucifixion are in doubt. They have no knowledge whatsoever—only making assumptions. They certainly did not kill him.[Surah An-Nisa; 4:157]
10. Every one of the People of the Book will definitely believe in him before his death. And on the Day of Judgment Jesus will be a witness against them.[Surah An-Nisa; 4:159]
11. Indeed, We have sent revelation to you O Prophet as We sent revelation to Noah and the prophets after him. We also sent revelation to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and his descendants, as well as Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon. And to David We gave the Psalms.[Surah An-Nisa; 4:163]
12. O People of the Book! Do not go to extremes regarding your faith; say nothing about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, was no more than a messenger of Allah and the fulfilment of His Word through Mary and a spirit created by a command from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers and do not say, “Trinity.” Stop!—for your own good. Allah is only One God. Glory be to Him! He is far above having a son! To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And Allah is sufficient as a Trustee of Affairs.[Surah An-Nisa; 4:171]
13. The Messiah would never be too proud to be a servant of Allah, nor would the angels nearest to Allah. Those who are too proud and arrogant to worship Him will be brought before Him all together.[Surah An-Nisa; 4:172]
14. Indeed, those who say, “Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary,” have fallen into disbelief. Say, O Prophet, “Who has the power to prevent Allah if He chose to destroy the Messiah, son of Mary, his mother, and everyone in the world all together?” To Allah alone belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and everything in between. He creates whatever He wills. And Allah is Most Capable of everything.[Surah Al-Ma’idah; 5:17]
15. Then in the footsteps of the prophets, We sent Jesus, son of Mary, confirming the Torah revealed before him. And We gave him the Gospel containing guidance and light and confirming what was revealed in the Torah—a guide and a lesson to the God-fearing.[Surah Al-Ma’idah; 5:46]
16. Those who say, “Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary,” have certainly fallen into disbelief. The Messiah himself said, “O Children of Israel! Worship Allah—my Lord and your Lord.” Whoever associates others with Allah in worship will surely be forbidden Paradise by Allah. Their home will be the Fire. And the wrongdoers will have no helpers.[Surah Al-Ma’idah; 5:72]
17. The Messiah, son of Mary, was no more than a messenger. ˹Many˺ messengers had ˹come and˺ gone before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They both ate food. See how We make the signs clear to them, yet see how they are deluded from the truth![Surah Al-Ma’idah; 5:75]
18. The disbelievers among the Children of Israel were condemned in the revelations of David and Jesus, son of Mary. That was for their disobedience and violations.[Surah Al-Ma’idah; 5:78]
19. And on Judgment Day Allah will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary! Remember My favour upon you and your mother: how I supported you with the holy spirit so you spoke to people in ˹your˺ infancy and adulthood. How I taught you writing, wisdom, the Torah, and the Gospel. How you moulded a bird from clay—by My Will—and breathed into it and it became a real bird—by My Will. How you healed the blind and the lepers—by My Will. How you brought the dead to life—by My Will. How I prevented the Children of Israel from harming you when you came to them with clear proofs and the disbelievers among them said, “This is nothing but pure magic.”[Surah Al-Ma’idah; 5:110]
20. Remember when the disciples asked, “O Jesus, son of Mary! Would your Lord be willing to send down to us a table spread with food from heaven?” Jesus answered, “Fear Allah if you are truly believers.”[Surah Al-Ma’idah; 5:112]
21. Jesus, son of Mary, prayed, “O Allah, our Lord! Send us from heaven a table spread with food as a feast for us—the first and last of us—and as a sign from You. Provide for us! You are indeed the Best Provider.”[Surah Al-Ma’idah; 5:114]
22. And on Judgment Day Allah will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary! Did you ever ask the people to worship you and your mother as gods besides Allah?” He will answer, “Glory be to You! How could I ever say what I had no right to say? If I had said such a thing, you would have certainly known it. You know what is hidden within me, but I do not know what is within You. Indeed, You ˹alone˺ are the Knower of all unseen.[Surah Al-Ma’idah; 5:116]
23. And on Judgment Day Allah will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary! Did you ever ask the people to worship you and your mother as gods besides Allah?” He will answer, “Glory be to You! How could I ever say what I had no right to say? If I had said such a thing, you would have certainly known it. You know what is ˹hidden˺ within me, but I do not know what is within You. Indeed, You alone are the Knower of all unseen. I never told them anything except what You ordered me to say: “Worship Allah—my Lord and your Lord!” And I was witness over them as long as I remained among them. But when You took me, You were the Witness over them—and You are a Witness over all things.[Surah Al-Ma’idah; 5:116-117]
24. Likewise, We guided Zachariah, John, Jesus, and Elias, who were all of the righteous.[Surah Al-An’am; 6:85]
25. They have taken their rabbis and monks as well as the Messiah, son of Mary, as lords besides Allah, even though they were commanded to worship none but One God. There is no god worthy of worship except Him. Glorified is He above what they associate with Him![Surah At-Tawbah; 9:31]
26. Jesus declared, “I am truly a servant of Allah. He has destined me to be given the Scripture and to be a prophet. He has made me a blessing wherever I go, and bid me to establish prayer and give alms-tax as long as I live, and to be kind to my mother. He has not made me arrogant or defiant. Peace be upon me the day I was born, the day I die, and the day I will be raised back to life!” That is Jesus, son of Mary. And this is a word of truth, about which they dispute.[Surah Maryam; 19:30-34]
27. Jesus also declared, “Surely Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him alone. This is the Straight Path.”[Surah Maryam; 19:36]
28. And remember the one who guarded her chastity, so We breathed into her through Our angel, Gabriel, making her and her son a sign for all peoples.[Surah Al-Anbya; 21:91]
29. And We made the son of Mary and his mother a sign, and gave them refuge on high ground—a suitable place for rest with flowing water.[Surah Al-Mu’minin; 23:50]
30. And remember when We took a covenant from the prophets, as well as from you O Prophet, and from Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, son of Mary. We did take a solemn covenant from all of them so that He may question these men of truth about their delivery of the truth. And He has prepared a painful punishment for the disbelievers.[Surah Al-Ahzab; 33:7-8]
31. He has ordained for you believers the Way which He decreed for Noah, and what We have revealed to you O Prophet and what We decreed for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, commanding: “Uphold the faith, and make no divisions in it.” What you call the polytheists to is unbearable for them. Allah chooses for Himself whoever He wills, and guides to Himself whoever turns to Him.[Surah Ash-Shuraa; 42:13]
32. When the son of Mary was cited as an example in argument, your people O Prophet broke into joyful applause. They exclaimed, “Which is better: our gods or Jesus?” They cite him only to argue. In fact, they are a people prone to dispute. He was only a servant We showed favour to, and made as an example for the Children of Israel.[Surah Az-Zukhruf; 43:57-59]
33. And his second coming is truly a sign for the Hour. So have no doubt about it, and follow me. This is the Straight Path.[Surah Az-Zukhruf; 43:61]
34. When Jesus came with clear proofs, he declared, “I have come to you with wisdom, and to clarify to you some of what you differ about. So fear Allah, and obey me. Surely Allah alone is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him alone. This is the Straight Path.”[Surah Az-Zukhruf; 43:63-64]
35. Then in the footsteps of these prophets, We sent Our messengers, and after them We sent Jesus, son of Mary, and granted him the Gospel, and instilled compassion and mercy into the hearts of his followers. As for monasticism, they made it up—We never ordained it for them—only seeking to please Allah, yet they did not even observe it strictly. So We rewarded those of them who were faithful. But most of them are rebellious.[Surah Al-Hadid; 57:27]
36. And remember when Jesus, son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel! I am truly Allah’s messenger to you, confirming the Torah which came before me, and giving good news of a messenger after me whose name will be Aḥmad.” Yet when the Prophet came to them with clear proofs, they said, “This is pure magic”.[Surah As-Saf; 61:6]
37. O believers! Stand up for Allah, as Jesus, son of Mary, asked the disciples, “Who will stand up with me for Allah?” The disciples replied, “We will stand up for Allah.” Then a group from the Children of Israel believed while another disbelieved. We then supported the believers against their enemies, so they prevailed.[Surah As-Saf; 61:14]
According to what we found there are 37 verses that cover many of the different abilities that Allah gave Jesus, as well as what people thought about him, his attributes, and his history regarding the period he lived in. There are even verses which state that, on the Day of Judgement, Jesus will speak to Allah and the rest of humanity will hear. Allah also condemns those that take Jesus as a God rather than his servant. Reading these verses gives a broad understanding of what Jesus represents in Islam and another way to obtain more wisdom for your own life. After reading this, maybe you may find that there are some verses that we may have missed. Post them down in the comments below! Until next time, Assalam Alaikum!

Islam universally views time as created. It is God's handiwork which, like all Creation, is under God's command. God acts in and through history but, being eternal, time does not encompass him. Nature is also his Creation but, while it manifests his greatness, it in no way encompasses Allah.
