According to Biblical history, when the body of 'Jesus' was buried after crucifixion, it disappeared from its grave a few days later.

So, in addition to the much circulated story of the return of Jesus as a sign of end of times which has also crept into the Hadith, there is also the concept of his resurrection from the 'grave' after crucifixion.

But regardless of all such wranglings, the Quraan says nothing to presume the second coming of Jesus and also logically refutes the story of his 'resurrection' from the grave.  In fact, the Noble Quraan clearly & logically resolves the matter based on the truth of its own contents.

As stated in Verse 4:157-158  "they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; .... But Allah took him up unto Himself. ...."   In my opinion, the very plain message that God Almighty gives us in this verse is that He made Jesus ascend unto Him and placed an apparition on the crucifix that apparently resembled Jesus, the purpose being to protect Jesus and mislead his tormentors.  This also explains logically that nothing resurrected from its grave.  If that incident is true (and only Allah knows best), it could have simply been the disappearance of the apparition.  Apparitions are temporary images.  The purpose of that apparition was to replace Jesus and prevent his enemies from seeing this miracle or this portent from Allah.  Thus, after its purpose was served, there was no need for the apparition to remain there. 

The above is Pickthall's translation.   Arberry, Yusuf Ali and various other translators have translated Verse 4:157 expressing much the same meaning. 
"...yet they did not slay him, neither crucified him,
 only a likeness of that was shown to them."  (4:157) (Translation Arthur Arberry)
"But they killed him not, nor crucified him,
only a likeness of that was shown to them."  (4:157) (Translation A. Yusuf Ali)
