Jesus is the most mentioned person in the Quran by reference; 25 times by the name Isa, third-person 48 times, first-person 35 times, and the rest as titles and attributes.

Jesus is also widely respected in Muslim ascetic and mystic literature, such as in Muslim mystic Al-Ghazzali’s Ihya `ulum ad-Din (“The revival of the religious sciences”). These works lay stress upon Jesus’ poverty, his preoccupation with worship, his detachment from worldly life and his miracles. Such depictions also include advice and sermons which are attributed to him. Later Sufic commentaries adapted material from Christian gospels which were consistent with their ascetic portrayal. Sufi philosopher Ibn Arabi described Jesus as “the seal of universal holiness” due to the quality of his faith and “because he holds in his hands the keys of living breath and because he is at present in a state of deprivation and journeying”.
