As a Muslim, It is the Basic requirement to be Muslim that you should believe in Jesus, Moses, Abraham and many other Prophets to be Muslim. Jesus Christ In Holy Quran is mentioned more time than Prophet Muhammad (SAW) by his name. Jesus Christ In Holy Quran is mentioned with the name of Isa (AS).
1. Number Of Times Prophet Jesus Christ In Holy Quran Mentioned:
Jesus Christ In Holy Quran is mentioned directly or indirectly 187 times, 25 times mentioned by direct name Isa (Jesus in English). These stats prove the significance of Jesus in Islam and Muslim Community. All Muslims believes in Jesus Christ no matter of sects either it is Sunni or Shi’as.

They said: “O Mary! truly an amazing thing you have brought! “O sister of Aaron! your father was not a man of evil, nor your mother an unchaste woman!” But she pointed to the babe. They said: “how can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?” He said: “I am indeed a servant of Allah. ” [Quran 19:26-30]
In this verse, Mary being a virgin holy lady came back with newly born Jesus in her hand. People start criticising her and at moment Jesus speaks up to defend her mother and proves her innocence. There is the whole chapter in name of the mother of Jesus Christ In Holy Quran with name Marriyam (meaning Mary in English).

“ The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: “Be”: and he was.“[ Quran 3:59 ]
In this verse, Almighty God is giving example about the birth of Jesus Christ that Humans shouldn’t about power and control of God. As God has done this before when he created Adam without father and mother while Jesus Christ is only created without Father.

I will also heal the blind and the leper, and by the leave of Allah bring the dead to life, I will also inform you of what things you eat and what you treasure up in your houses. ” [Quran 3:49]
