Jesus: Beyond the Sting of Satan

From the hadith: Al Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 506:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "When any human being is born. Satan touches him at both sides of the body with his two fingers, except Jesus, the son of Mary, whom Satan tried to touch but failed, for he touched the placenta-cover instead."

I was aware of this, but hat tip to Abu Daoud for the exact reference.

There are numerous references in the Qur’an that imply that Jesus is divine, something that Muslims generally deny.  This is one from the hadith, or traditions.
