I understand that the Qur'an speaks of "Isa", as "the Messiah" [Qur'anic, "Masih"]:

Al Tawbah or Bara'ah - 9:30,31
From what I understand and have read of Islamic sources [Qur'an, aHadith [primarily Sahih], Tafsir and Tarikh, etc], the Qur'an [etal.] teaches that Adam sinned ultimately because of satan, and thus lost his garments of light in the Garden, and became naked [and attempted to hide behind the "leaves of Paradise" [Ta-Ha 20:121], and God had to clothe him [them, Adam/Eve] as per:
al-Hilali-Khan translation [or Yusuf-Ali, Pickthall, Shakir, etc [which do you prefer?]
Al A'raf - 7:26,27
Ta-Ha - 20:118-121
This is what was given before in the Genesis 3:1-24, and in Genesis 3:15, God promised a "seed" to the woman, and would come of the woman [not of the man]. Eve, understood this promise of God, to send the "seed", as she thinks [*
] her first child is that "seed", see Genesis 4:1, "gotten a man of the LORD".
[* mistakenly, but hopefully, as every daughter of Eve since then had awaited, see Sarah [Hebrews 11:11] and God's continued promise to Abraham in regards the "seed"; Genesis 9:9, 12:7, 13:15,16, 17:7,8,9,10, 21:12, 22:17,18; Exodus 32:13, 33:1; Joshua 24:3; 2 Samuel 7:12, 22:51; 2 Chronicle 20:7; Psalms 89:3,4,29,36, 105:6; Isaiah 41:8, 45:25, 65:9, 66:22; John 7:42; Acts 3:25, 7:5,6, 13:23; Romans 1:3, 4:13,16,18, 9:7; Galatians 3:16,19,29; 2 Timothy 2:8; Hebrews 2:16, 11:18; Revelation 12:7, etc. KJB]
Thus it was God who instituted the "sacrifice" from "the foundation of the world" [Hebrews 9:26; Revelation 13:8, 17:8 KJB] and "the shedding of blood" [Hebrews 9:22 KJB] for sin/transgression of His Law. This "sacrifice" was continued through time, until Christ.
Al Ma-idah 5:27-33 [Cain an Abel continue the sacrifical]
As Saffat 37:75-83, 101-107 [Noah and Abraham continue the sacrifical]
Al Baqarah 2:67-73 [Moses continues the sacrifical, see also the clean and unclean in Al An'am 6:146]
Al 'Imran 3:183 [Elijah continues this on Mt. Carmel, also see notation in Yusuf-Ali *489]
Additional references, though in a different manner than the Bible [KJB]:
Al Ma'idah 5:2,3,95
Maryam 19:54 [see also Yusuf-Ali notation *2506]

"Anti-Christ" [1 John 2:18,22, 4:3; 2 John 1:7], according to scripture [KJB] is already here and now [more details if any would like to hear; just ask me], and has been here for over a thousand years, and is presently very active.
According to scripture [KJB], it was God who sent Jesus [John 3:16; Psalms 40:7; Hebrews 10:7 KJB] as "Saviour" [Luke 2:11; John 4:42; Acts 5:31; 2 Timothy 1:10; 2 Peter 1:1,11, 2:20, 3:2,19; 1 John 4:14; Hebrews 1:3
KJB, etc.] of the world.
