While the return of `Isa (`alayhis-salam)  may not be stated 
explicitly in the Qur'n, it can nevertheless be deduced from 
several verses:

1. "And there is none of the People of the Book but will 
   surely believe in him before his death, and on the Day of 
   Resurrection, he will be a witness over them.'' Qur'an[4:159]

2. "And he shall speak to MANKIND in the cradle, AND IN OLD
   AGE, and (he shall be) one of the righteous.''{Qur'an [3:46],
   my emphasis.}

   The wording here is important. Jesus (peace be upon him) was 
   a messenger to the Israelites, but this verse says he will 
   speak to mankind without any specifications. Furthermore, it
   says he will speak to them in old age, yet he left this world
   at the age of 33 years.{Reported by Ibn Kathir and others.} 
   Both of these points are an indication of the fact that Jesus
   has not died, and will return to this earth toward the end
   of the world, thereby speaking to mankind at large in his 
   old age.

3. "And surely he (Jesus) is a sign of the Hour, so do not 
   doubt concerning it." Q[43:61]

Will they then not ponder over the Qur'an? Or are there locks
upon their hearts?
