The descent of Jesus

Question: I need all hadeeth and quranic verses concerning the comeback of Jesus to earth, this to convince a brother who has just embraced islam.

Answer: The hadiths in this reach tawaatur, and Muhmaad Anwar Shaah Al-Kashmiri has a book showing that. It is not mentioned in the Quran. One of the many hadiths on this is in Al-Bukhaariy:
2109. It is related from Abu Hurayra that the Messenger of Allah, said what could be translated to mean, "I swear by Allah, the time is soon coming when the son of Maryam will descend among you as a just judge. He will break the crosses, kill the pigs and cancel the payment of  jizya-tax. There will be so much wealth that there will be no one that accepts it."
