Two Hadiths mentioning Jesus

Assalaam! Tonight, I am marking down a couple of sayings of Jesus written from two various hadiths, and these are just two of many other hadiths you can find searching under names of "Jesus" and "Esa", the Arabic name. Tomorrow, since it is Christmas Eve, I will write a passage of John 3 under the title, "the Words of Jesus." I plan to, Lord willing, if my computer run right and/or I end up having a busier day than usual for a holiday.

Here's one from my Hadith software.

"Narrated by 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).
- Shahi Muslim

It is believe that in the last days, Jesus will come back as a middle-aged man, unite all believers of Allah (God) (Jews, Muslims, Christians), defeat Satan and the disbelievers and send them to their doom, establish Islam as the only religion and abolish all religions, especially those that cause people to worship idols instead of God or cause people to partner idols with God, and end oppression. He will rule for forty years and all Muslims will bow down to him.

Here's another:

Umar Radiyallahu Anhu says:" (Muhammad) Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: 'Do not exceed in praising me as the Christians over-praised Esa (Jesus) Alayhis Salaam (That they made him the Son of God). I am a bondsman of Allah, therefore, call me the bondsman of Allah, His Rasul."' Ch.46, the Humbleness. Hadith 001 (313). Shamaa-il Tirmidhi)

In other words, Muhammad (SAW) did not come as the Messiah or as a partner of God and warns his followers not to praise him as Christians do, resulting in this serious sin known as Shirk. They must only worship God and God alone. (La ilaha illa Allah muhammadun rasullullah)
In other words, he is God's warner.
