Born to Mary, prophet of God, didn't die on the cross, will die, is returning. There's more but the most important thing is that Jesus is not God but a prophet whose message from God is that God is one and in harmony with the things tools e to Muhammad.

I butchered that I'm sure.

So do you (as a Muslim) believe that Jesus was born to a virgin named Mary like Christians do?

Jesus (Issa) was born by immaculate conception to the virgin mother Mary. Was a real human, a prophet and a man (not God or the son of God) who performed miracles on earth. Was taken to heaven by God almighty and will return again to lead the victorious, final conflict against the anti-Christ. We believe he will reject the cross as a symbol of himself or God.

That's pretty much what I believe

So Muslims also believe that he will return at the end of time? That really is interesting!

You seem like a pretty cool dude and have a thirst for knowledge, thats excellent!

Yes, he will be God's chosen representative to lead the armies fighting for righteousness in defeat of the anti-Christ.

I don't want to interrupt the generally Islamic flow here other than to point out that Jesus death and resurrection are not without factual evidence...

"The historical evidence for the resurrection of Christ is very good. Scholars such as William Lane Craig, J.P. Moreland, Gary Habermas, and others have done an especially good job of detailing that evidence.1 It is the aim of this article to offer a sort of synthesis of some of their key points and show the strength of the historical evidence for the resurrection of Christ."

Here is a great article explaining Jesus in Islam by one of the great scholars of Exegesis - Ibn Kathir: https://www.islamawareness.net/Prophets/isa.html

...the faith of Islam came with views quite different from that of the extend gospels with regards to both the end of Jesus and his nature.
The Glorious Qur'an affirms that Allah the Exalted did not permit the people of Israel to kill Jesus or crucify him. What happened was that Allah saved him from his enemies and raised him to heaven. They never killed Jesus, they killed someone else....

We believe he was taken directly to heaven, others believe he died on the cross and was then resurrected. Either way, God almighty recalled him and Jesus will return to lead the victorious charge over the forces of the anti-Christ.

@Red Sky at Morning

The 3 truths mentioned at beginning of the article you linked can only be "truths" if one is a Christian who believes in the infallibility of the Bible. The reason his disciples had real experiences after he was supposedly killed was because he was never killed. There are many other researchers, scholars, and laymen who can support the opposite of what you claim with the same types of historical evidence and more. Your premise is shaky to say the least. I pray God will open your heart to the truth about Jesus and you will accept it, for your own salvation. Peace.
