I came across this hadeeth recently, which was new to me. I had heard/read before about the importance of Jesus (PBUH) in Islam and also about the Ashtiname of Muhammad (PBUH), so decided to share.

Narrated Abu Hurairah: I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “I am the nearest of all the people to the son of Mary, and all the prophets are paternal brothers, and there has been no prophet between me and him (i.e. Jesus).” (Book #55, Hadeeth #651)
Abu Hurairah reported… that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: I am most close to Jesus, son of Mary, among the whole of mankind in this worldly life and the next life. They said: Allah’s Messenger how is it? Thereupon he said: Prophets are brothers in faith, having different mothers. Their religion is, however, one and there is no Apostle between us (between I and Jesus Christ). (Book #030, Hadeeth #5836)
