Will Jesus be buried next to Muhammad in Medina?
Muhammad is buried in Medina, Saudi Arabia. While Muslims do not believe Jesus died on the cross, they believe Jesus will one day return and be buried next to Muhammad in Medina.
Traditions (ahadith) 1 that Muhammad taught about Jesus’ future return and death.
Muhammad reportedly taught of Jesus’ future return:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until the son of Mary (i.e. Jesus) descends amongst you as a just ruler, he will break the cross, kill the pigs, and abolish the Jizya tax. Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it (as charitable gifts). (Sahih al-Bukhari 2476)
Muhammad reportedly taught that when Jesus returns he will reign forty years and then die:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace be upon him). He will descend (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him. (Sunan Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4310)2
These traditions were written about 200 years after Muhammad.3
Is the evidence that Jesus will one day die and be buried next to Muhammad in Medina historically credible?
No. The historical fact is that Jesus died on the cross and rose again from the dead. Jesus’ tomb was empty, just as He said it would be.
The close connection between history and Christian beliefs is one of the main differences between Christianity and Islam,
“Christians have always claimed that their faith is rooted in history. In this respect, Christianity is different from all other religions. The substance of Hinduism, Buddhism, and even Islam is not found in their historical claims. What is important about these religions is certain general truths that they propose for belief. These truths do not depend on any historical events, even though they were supposedly discovered or revealed in historical situations. If these religions are true, they are true in all times and places, indeed timelessly. But Christianity is different. It is essentially a story about certain things that happened in geographic places and historic times: creation, fall, the history of Israel, the incarnation of Christ through the virgin birth, his miracles, his atonement, his resurrection, ascension, and return. One may be skeptical about the Buddha’s reported enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree and still be a good Buddhist. But one may not be skeptical about Jesus’ resurrection and be a good Christian. Indeed, Paul says that “if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain” (1 Cor. 15:14). In orthodox Christianity, our entire salvation comes through acts of God in history.” 4
Christians have a living hope
The Christian hope is unlike other types of hope that end in death and burial (Psalm 146:3). Christian hope is living. Jesus’ tomb is empty.
Jesus chose disciples (Apostles) to witness and testify to what He did and taught. One of Jesus’ foremost disciples was Peter. Peter was an eyewitness to the resurrection of Jesus from the dead and His ascension into heaven. Peter wrote,
1 Peter 1:3
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
Jesus now sits at the right hand of God and reigns as the Christ.5 Put your faith and hope in Jesus, because His tomb is empty.

Narrated Abu Huraira:
“Allah’s Apostle said, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, surely (Jesus,) the son of Mary will soon descend amongst you and will judge mankind justly (as a Just Ruler); he will break the Cross and kill the pigs and there will be no Jizya (i.e. taxation taken from non Muslims). Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it, and a single prostration to Allah (in prayer) will be better than the whole world and whatever is in it.” Abu Huraira added “If you wish, you can recite (this verse of the Holy Book): — ‘And there is none Of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (i.e. Jesus as an Apostle of Allah and a human being) Before his death. And on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness Against them” (4.159) (See Fateh Al Bari, Page 302 Vol. 7)” (Sahih al-Bukhari 3448).

thoughts on “Will Jesus be buried next to Muhammad in Medina?”
Good day…I have a problem with the Quran…I have to concede that I am not at all versed in this book, but if one even find one contradiction,that is enough for reserve… One such contradiction is right here:… ‘He will destroy the Antichrist…’. How can the Antichrist be important to Islam if Islam don’t except the CHRIST? The other:…’Allah will perish all religions except Islam’. How can the faith based on JESUS be destroyed and then HIM having reverence for Islam later? How can the Jews be destroyed if the prophecies about them is not done? SHALOM…Wilbur.
The Antichrist in Islam is known as ad dajjal… The coming of Antichrist is one of the major signs of Qiyamah or the Day of Judgement… It is prophesized that Jesus Christ will return to earth and fight the anti christ. Islam does accept Jesus, son of Mary ( not son of God) as one of our prophets. We believe he did not die on the cross, but was raised to the heavens by Allah.

Assalmualkum i think but only think that they dont mean destroying like kill but i still says i thin and i will recommend you to talk with a sheikh or do some research like not just 2 min of it go deep until you get your answer
We believe in the books of the Almighty
Injeel – Gospel the bible of Jesus, Injeel we believe that the word anti Christ is what is a translation to you from the original language of armaic then to Greek. Original bible doesn’t say Christians or Christ it’s esah or yeshua and the people were called essaiy or yeshuai and for opposite of esah it be the dajjal you didn’t find a translation of that so people of time kept it anti Christ.
so did you have original bible with you there?
Jesus said I have not come to start a new religion but I have come to fulfil the old one ( there is no reason to say that Jesus Christ created Christianity ) the Jewish where given the promised land but because they abused the Torah they where exiled it is they that betrayed Jesus Christ the saviour!!!!!! Even if all proof was to be put infringe upon humanity you would not believe it to be true!! You have no ethnicity does the Torah teach to kill they neighbour and steal their possessions and land and unjustly condemned to death? Are not going to be judged will you never die ? What answer will you give on the day of judgement when you meet your creator?
Brother we believe in Christ the old books that is Torah which was revealed to Moses PBUH and gospel which was revealed to Jesus Christ PBUH was corrupted by the people as allah said in the Quran my old books Verses were changed by people as prophet Mohammad PBUH said that this upcoming of anti Christ is said to their nation from adam to prophet Mohammad PBUH hope it’s clear salam
Please give me some verses from the Quran, where it is mentioned Old books or verses were changed by Jewish or Christians?
So woe to those who write the “scripture” with their own hands, then say, “This is from Allah ,” in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.
Surah Baqarah verse 79 (2:79).
This is one such verse.
Al-Quran: Sura Baqarah(2)
Verse: 75 Do you covet [the hope, O believers], that they would believe for you while a party of them used to hear the words of Allah and then distort the Torah after they had understood it while they were knowing? (75)
78 And among them are unlettered ones who do not know the Scripture except in wishful thinking, but they are only assuming. (78)
79 So woe to those who write the “scripture” with their own hands, then say, “This is from Allah,” in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn. (79)
Islam believes that Jesus is the Masi (Arabic) or Mashiya (Hebrew), translated Kristos (Greek), further translated as Christ (in English), which means ‘Anointed One’. Islam, however, does not believe he is the Son of God or divine. Quran says, “Lam yalid walam yulad” that is “He (God) neither begets nor is begotten”
One has to read and understand Quran to know the meaning of Islam.When we talk of Islam,it is the same Creed Which was revealed to Jesus, Moses and other prophets of Lord which had got corrupted through human intervention
Well thats all about almighty Allah what eva he decides or say will happen instantly!! 1st alcohol was halal than quran made it haram !! 1st hundreda of marraiges halal and than islam make it 4 halal !! He is superior what eva he wants so eveyone shall obey there 10000 of exmples i can send u !!
We believe jesus is christ or messiah
The title “Christ” refers to Jesus’ death on the cross, His resurrection from the dead, and His ascension to heaven. Jesus’ disciple Peter confessed Jesus as the Christ in Matthew 16:13-23 and Jesus explained this title to Peter in terms of His death and resurrection. Later, Peter wrote,
Peter preached that Jesus is the Christ in terms of Jesus’ death on the cross, resurrection, and ascension,
I invite you to read the Christian Scriptures, which refer to Jesus as “Christ” more than 500 times.
Firstly the sentence about Jesus son of Mary killing the Antichrist is from Hadith, I.e. the sayings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). It is not from the Quran.
Secondly “Antichrist” when mentioned in Islamic prophecies is a translation of “Dajjal”, which means a great deceiver. It is usually translated as “the Antichrist” because this is what he (dajjal) has been called in English, as mentioned in Christian prophecies. Christ means the “annointed one”, which refers to Jesus. Islam accepts Jesus as a prophet of God. Therefore there is nothing contradicting Islam’s teachings in calling Jesus “Christ”. Islam only prohibits calling him God or son of God.
“Dajjal” and “Antichrist” thus means someone who will deceive people to believe that he is on the straight path (the path of Jesus and other prophets), but will in fact be against the true teachings of Jesus (I.e. he will be anti-Christ),
Thirdly in the prophecies it is mentioned that “Jesus/the Messiah/Christ” will come and defeat the Antichrist. For this reason also he is called Antichrist, since he would fight Jesus in the latter days.
As for the sentence “Allah will perish all religions other than Islam”, it’s not from the Quran either. I honestly do not know where you got it from.
These matters of prophecies are often more subtle and require some deeper understanding of the philosophy behind them. If you want to understand them further I recommend the following for a short introduction:
Did you know that the title “Christ” is a reference to Jesus’ death on the cross and ascension to heaven? That’s what Jesus taught His disciples in Matthew 16:13-23, after Peter confessed Jesus to be the “Christ.”
That is also what Jesus’ chosen Apostle Peter preached (Acts 2:22-36) and taught (1 Peter 1:3). John was another disciple Jesus chose to witness and testify to what Jesus did and taught. John testified to Jesus being the “Christ” with reference to Jesus’ death and resurrection from the dead (1 John 3:16).
Based on your reference to alislam.org, it looks like you are a follower of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. Have you seriously considered how wrong he was about Jesus’ death on the cross and statements he made about the Gospel of Barnabas?
1. Islam does believe in Christ.
2. Jesus real religion was Islam.
1. What does “Christ” mean?
2. Jesus’ religion was Islam? Would you explain further? I thought Jesus was Jewish and followed the Jewish Scriptures.
Muslim is someone who submits to the will of God Almighty. We believe Jesus was a Muslim because he submitted his will to his God, the Father. He never said he was God. Because he has a God. John 17:3, this is eternal life that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. Jesus clearly made a distinction between him and the Father. At the end of the day, there is only one God, Allah. The God of Jesus is Allah.
Wilbur I am no scholar. With my limited knowledge, ‘Antichrist’ is merely a symbolic name for someone against the message of Allah.
‘Message of Allah’ at the time of Prophet Moses(peace be upon him) was what he said and practiced later at the time of Prophet Esa Ibn e Maryam(Peace be upon him) which you call Jesus was what he said and ordered to practice but both were only for their respective times as Christians and Jews exploited the religion and made changes.
The coming of (Jesus) Prophet Isa son of Maryam(peace be upon him) would also be to clear this confusion he will say to christians that they changed his message. Allah knows best!!
Abraham, Moses or any Biblical prophets has nothing to do with Muhammad or his religion called Islam. Abraham and his descendants were are by race Hebrew they worship a true God called in Hebrew Elohim, who revealed Himself not only to the prophets but even to ordinary worshipers. All prophets came from the Hebrew background and descendants of Abraham. Whereas Muhammad came from Arabs who speaks Arabic and use to worshiped 360 god and goddess at Kaba Mecca Audi Arabia. Hebrews are highly qualified and civilized race and whereas Arabs were nomad or gypsies uncivilized idols worshipers even during the time Muhammad. Bible were written by qualified prophets and messengers, in Hebrew and Greek languages. Non of the Biblical Prophets ever worshiped a god called Allah.
All Prophets came from Abraham? He isn’t the first prophet, Adam was.
How can you say all Prophets come from Abraham? Adam was before Abraham was he not? Also all Prophets are chosen and sent by Almighty God not any man
The word “anti” means to be “against” so those who are against Christ are called the antiChrists.
beacuse there is no verse in christian bible thar jesus claimed be God,
not a single christian heart actualy belives jesus as God,
Jesus will come before last day and dwell among muslims and suffer a notmal humen death beacuse he never died on cross…..he never claimed to be God or son of God.
I AND GOD IS ONE…..means jesus claimed God is diffrent and he is diffrent from God…..beacuse one means diffrent…..GOD IS GOD, JESUS IS JESUS, YOU ARE YOU..I AM ME
IWAS BEFORE ABRAHAM means jesus said GOD SAYS HE WAS BEFORE ABRAHAM…
JESUS DID NOT REFER HIMSELF BUT GOD ALMIGHTY
Thank you for your comment. Jesus said and did many things evidencing the fact that He is the Son of God. In fact, it was this claim that led the Jews to hand Him over to the Romans to be crucified. I invite you to read the gospel of Matthew.
When was the gospel of Mathew written ?
Since the times of the early church fathers, the apostle Matthew has always been accredited with the authorship of the first gospel (canonically). Even the title “According to Matthew” (KATA MAQQAION) is found in the earliest manuscripts, and was the most highly regarded and quoted of the gospels by the church fathers.  Matthew is also called Levi (Mark 2:14; Luke 5:27), and was the son of Alphaeus (Luke 5:27). He was a tax collector (telwnhV), probably stationed on a main trade route near Capernaum where he would have collected tolls for Herod Antipas from commercial traffic.  Additionally, being a tax collector might better qualify Matthew for his role as an official recorder of the life and actions of Christ.  After the resurrection there is no other mention of him in the New Testament.
According to the resources available to us, Papias (the Bishop of Hieropolis in Phrygia ca. AD 130) was the first to associate the apostle Matthew with this document. Eusebius, the early church historian, records Papias’ account: “Matthew collected the oracles (ta logia) in the Hebrew language, and each interpreted them as best he could.”  This quote also introduces some problems. What was Papias referring to when he stated that Matthew wrote in the Hebrew dialect? Some have understood this not as a reference to the Hebrew as we have in the Old Testament, but instead the Syro-Chaldaic,  or Aramaic. On the other hand, most scholars insist that Matthew was originally written in Greek because many parts of the Gospel are extremely (if not identically) similar to Mark’s, which was indubitably written in Greek. Others have also concluded that Matthew wrote two Gospels-one in a Palestinian language and the other in Greek. Ralph Martin’s conclusion is that “Papias’ tradition can at best relate only to a collection of material later used in the composition of the entire Gospel.” 
Not until the eighteenth century did the question of authorship become an issue. More recently, since Matthew does rely heavily on Mark’s Gospel (see “Date and Location of Composition” below), some scholars have discarded the idea that the author was one of the twelve apostles. On the other hand, Papias also said that Mark was the interpreter of Peter,  and therefore, the apostle Matthew would not have a problem with deferring to the early leader of the church. 
Date and Location of Composition
Various estimates have placed the date of Matthew’s composition anywhere from AD 50 – to AD 100. But before a date can be decided, its relation to the Gospel of Mark must first be addressed. If Mark was written first, then Matthew must have a later date (and vice-versa). The most widely accepted hypothesis is that both Matthew and Luke used Mark as a source for various reasons. Matthew even reproduced about ninety percent of Mark, while Luke reproduced about sixty percent.  Without going into much detail on the dating of Mark’s Gospel,  it was probably written somewhere between AD 50 and AD 55. Consequently, Matthew’s Gospel could have reasonably been written anywhere between AD 55 and AD 60. This date allows time for Matthew to have access to Mark’s Gospel, and suggests that he completed the Gospel before the destruction of the temple in AD 70, because it would seem strange for the author not to mention this event in light of chapter 24.  This dating also allows time for Luke to use Matthew’s Gospel in composing his own Gospel, as well as its sequel (Acts, ca. AD 62).
Though dating the Gospel maybe difficult or complicated, it is even more problematic to determine where Matthew wrote the Gospel. Most scholars conclude that Matthew was written in either Palestine or Syria because of its Jewish nature. Antioch of Syria is usually the most favoured because many in the early church dispersed there (Acts 11:19, 27). Another reason for favouring Antioch is that the earliest reference to Matthew’s Gospel was found in Ignatius’ (the Bishop of Antioch) Epistle to the Smyrnaeans (ca. 110).
Purpose and Audience
It is quite obvious and widely accepted that Matthew was written to the Jews. For one, he focuses on the fulfillment of the Old Testament, even quoting from it sixty-two times, which is more than any other Gospel writer. Secondly it is interesting that Matthew does not explain Jewish culture like the other evangelists (cf. Mark 7:3, John 19:40), which also adds to the argument that he is writing to Jews. Matthew uses the phrase, “kingdom of heaven,” (the only author, in fact, to use this phrase) which can be considered as a “reverential Jewish expression” -a term appropriate to a Jewish audience. His purpose in writing to the Jews was to show them that Jesus of Nazareth was the expected messiah and both his genealogy and his resurrection were legitimate proofs of this.
The overriding theme shows Jesus as the messiah, but there are also several minor themes, some of which directly relate to the major theme. These other themes include the kingdom of heaven, the conflict between Jesus and the religious leaders, Jesus as the fulfiller of the law, and the king who will return in the clouds.
Literary Structure, Coherence, and Unity
The structure of Matthew’s Gospel is very remarkable. The Gospel can be divided into three parts: the prologue (1:1-2:23), the body (3:1-28:15), and the epilogue (28:16-20). Matthew constructed his body around five distinct discourses: the Sermon on the Mount (5:1-7:29), the Commissioning of the Apostles (10:1-42), Parables about the Kingdom (13:1-52), Relationships in the Kingdom (18:1-35), and the Olivet Discourse (24:1-25:46).  Each discourse also ends with a recognizable closing statement (7:28, 11:1, 13:53, 19:1, 26:1), for example: “When Jesus had finished saying these things….” Even more interesting are the intricate parallels between the first and fifth discourses, and the second and fourth discourses. This leaves the third discourse (Parables about the Kingdom) as the focal point. Though we are not sure about the comparison of Jesus’ baptism with his death, there is a rather striking parallel between Emmanuel (1:23; lit. “God with us”) and Jesus’ last words, “And surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age” (28:20).

Assalam aleikum we ve tried to look for the original gospels but weve failed.to find any the existing one are just for people with hidden agendas
Thus ending up in contradictionsof all sorts eg jesus was crucified and another says not him
Jesus was baptised another says no john was killed before he met jesus and so many others
Assalamualaikum. We believe that the teachings of Jesus, Moses and Muhammed (peace be apon them) were all in favor of Islam. The teachings were either changed, forgotten or just not accepted. We believe Jesus is a prophet of Allah not the Son of God nor God incarnate. Muhammad (pbuh) is the final prophet and was the founder of Islam and its holy book the Q`uran. The Bible was originally the holy book of Injil. I have more to say but I am unsure if it is correct but I shall check and be back. I think most of the things i have said are correct but then again I am an 11 yr old. 🙂
Thank you for taking the time to comment, “Anonymous.” Do Muslims believe Jesus’ death on the cross? If you believe Jesus’ teachings, you should believe that He died on the cross and rose again from the dead. This is something Jesus taught in the gospels (Matthew 16:21; 20:17-19; 26:1-2, 6-12) and happened in history.
One of Jesus’ foremost disciples was Peter. Jesus appeared to Peter after He died and rose again. Peter testifies to Jesus’ death and resurrection in 1 Peter 2:24; 3:18.
Another disciple, John, testified to Jesus’ death and resurrection in 1 John 2:1-2; 4:10 and Revelation (Rev.1:1-18). Followers of Jesus who knew eyewitnesses also spoke about Jesus’ death and resurrection include Luke who wrote Luke and Acts (see Luke 23-24; Acts 1).
Jesus gave a sign to the church (the Lord’s Supper) to commemorate His death.
In my studies, I have found that it is the followers of Muhammad who changed the teachings of Jesus and His followers.
Just a tip now
Holy Quran Sura Al-baqran verse 45 speaks about the holy way through which Jesus Christ came to this world, also testifies about the Miracles performed by him, even to an extent of Creating a bird out of mud like how God created human being, making us to know Him as a creator, even if Muslims were taught and indoctrinated not to believe He died on the cross verse 55 stated this clearly that Those that follow Christ will be superior to those that reject Him, then they shall be seriously punished here on earth and hereafter and there will be nobody to help them. Open your eyes wide. Think about this Quran confirms that The Last Hour will not come Until Jesus descends from heaven to fight the anti Christ. Why Christ , why not Muhammed. Think very well. Thanks
I think there is a great problem with the Islamic view of Jesus. Muslims say “we love Jesus”.
Jesus said ” Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” (John 14:23). Notice that John was one of His apostles: is is contemporary to Jesus, he was with Him, talked with Him, and it was himself who wrote this book after Jesus died, later in his life at the island of Patmos. There was no reason whatsoever for John tell lies, of course.
For a logical point of view, if Muslim brothers love Jesus, they will need to keep His words. And to keep His words means that they accept Jesus as a the son of God (“my Father will love him”). This creates a great contradiction with what Muslims believe: that Jesus was not the son of God.
So if Muslims love Jesus, they need to accept that Jesus is the Son of God. On the other hand If they don’t believe He is the Son of God, they do not love Jesus because Jesus Himself told He was the son of God.
Allah has declared in the Quran about relationship between humankind and Allah. Central issue of the Quran is oneness of almighty Allah and to follow the guidelines mentioned there. Humans have been created to worship the almighty. Messengers from the first Adam (peace be upon him) to the final Mohummad (peace be upon him) have been sent to teach the people about oneness of Allah. Like Christians no jews or muslim believes Moses (peace be upon him) or Mohummand (peace be upon him) is son of God. Believing in such a way certainly violate the original teaching of oneness of almighty Allah. Before Jesus (peace be upon him) no followers who believe in oneness of God claimed such a contradictory statement. Certainly Jesus (peace be upon him) never professed such things which goes against the original teaching. As Allah is one without any partner, undoubtedly Jesus alike all other messengers taught the same message. If the creator is the central issue why we are wasting time on debating son of god.
Worshiping the single god and guidelines of Allah to be followed to maintain peace and to face the single creator at the judgment day. Wasting time debating on the son of god is unnecessary. All prophet including Jesus (peace be upon him) taught one god to their followers. Except Christians no follower of any messenger from Adam(peace be upon him) to Muhammad(peace be upon him) showed such audacity to challenge the core belief of religion (singularity of God).
Noyeem, Thank you for taking the time to comment. The “singularity of God” as you call it, and what the Qur’an teaches (unitarian monotheism) is not what Jesus taught or believed. Unitarian monotheism is foreign to the Christian Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments.
The very first chapter of the Bible affirms monotheism and yet it is not the kind of monotheism found in the Qur’an. It is not compatible with the Qur’an (Genesis 1:1-2, Genesis 1:26,27 with John 1:1-3).
Other biblical examples of monotheism that are not affirmed in the Quran can be found with:
Trinitarian monotheism is what Jesus revealed.
In the gospels Jesus Christ gives the definitive answer to true monotheism.
I discuss this further in, Trinity, Tawhid, and Monotheism.
Admin, السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته. With all due respect and full intriguity, I would like to request the sources of the Sahih Hadith to these narration. Because we all know how grave it is to play around with the words of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. These words are precious and must be protected from corruption. Many other people during the time of Imam Muslim started innovating and slowly changing the correct hadith. They’re known as ألإسرائليات Ahadith from Israeli scriptures. (Jewish scriptures to be precise)
The ascension of JESUS CHRIST(Peace be upon Him) cannot be found in the original text of the any of the FOUR GOSPLES. The ASCENSSION IN MARK and other verse were added 200 YEARS after the event of crucifixion.
Also there is no ascension in MATHEW and JOHN.
Luke, the inspired author of the third gospel also wrote the book of Acts (1st century AD). Jesus’ ascension is mentioned in Luke 24:50-53 and in Acts 1; 3:20-21. Jesus’ ascension to the right hand of God the Father is mentioned elsewhere in the New Testament (1 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 1:3; Revelation 5)
