Occurred to me that since today is Easter, I'd share what Muslims believe a bit about Jesus' life & death, or as he is referred to in the Quran, Isa (pbuh). It's the tradition that after the name of any prophet of God we say peace be upon him, hence (pbuh).
Muslims believe in the Virgin Birth and Jesus is called the "Word of God" and "the Messiah" in our scripture. He is called the "Word" because we believe God said "Be", and Jesus was created through this command.
We believe he raised the dead and healed the sick by the permission of God. We don't believe he is divine, he is one of 25 prophets mentioned in the Quran and one of tens thousands of messengers of God sent to mankind over time, all with similar messages for humanity.
Sunni Muslims don't believe Jesus was crucified (sorry can't speak to other sects). We believe he was lifted to heaven by God still alive and another was crucified that took on his image to fool his captors.
We believe he will return in a second coming and finish living his mortal life after defeating the anti-Christ. He is the only prophet, according to our tradition, who has not yet experienced death, and continues to be fully alive in the presence of God.

19 years ago to day Hae Min Lee left Woodlawn high school and disappeared. Nearly a month later her body was found in Leakin park in Baltimore city. 3 years ago #Serial brought the story to the world. But there is much more to the story than Serial. Thread: 1/
Adnan Syed, 17, her ex, was arrested and convicted Of her murder. We have been fighting for 19 years to prove his innocence. Last year his conviction was thrown out but the state filed an appeal and we are now waiting for that appeal to be decided. Burn in hell @thiru4baltimore
Also last year I wrote a critically acclaimed, New York Times best selling book with contributions from Adnan. In this thread I will refer to portions of the book to talk about the things that were not covered by #Serial.

Going to take this opportunity to talk bout Jesus. As a Muslim. Pass it on to your nearest Islamophobic friend, neighbor, or relative
Jesus is mentioned in the Qur'an, the holy scripture of Muslims, 25 times. Muhammad is only mentioned 5 times by name. There is entire chapter about Jesus and his mother, Mary. The chapter is called "Mary". Like, literally.
Muslims believe in the virgin birth of Jesus. In the Islamic tradition, God said "Be", and Jesus was. The angel Gabriel announced it to Mary, who was reasonably worried and stressed at having a baby and what people would say.
