Salaams peeps,


From what I know not everyone will recognise him nor accept him at first. Only the ones with taqwa and know of the signs given to us by our Prophet (pease and blessings be upon him).


Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated, "The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: 'There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Isa, peace be upon him. He will descend. When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish hair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet...."


So the people who know of these signs will recognise Isa (upon be peace) and accompany him. Then his truth will slowly attract the believers. Then of course he will kill the Dajjal.

Assalamu Alaykum


I try to make it easy understandable:


1. Isa ben Maryam, alayhi salam, is the True Messiah

2. Maseehid-Dajjal is the False Messiah, Antichrist.

*Imam Mahdi (Descendent of Prophet Muhammad PBUH)*


by Mufti A.H. Elias and Mohammad Ali ibn Zubair Ali


*Who Is Imam Mahdi?*


Note: Please do not confuse Imam Mahdi with Hadhrat Isa (Jesus) Alayhis

Salaam. They are two different persons, and both will come during the last

days. According to Hadeeth, Imam Mahdi will appear first, and Hadhrat Isa (

A.S.) will appear during Imam Mahdi's lifetime. Furthermore, only Hadhrat

Isa (A.S.) will be able to kill Dajjal (the "anti-Christ").


*The term "MAHDI" is a title meaning "The Guided one".*


Hadhrat Abdullah bin Mas'ood (R.A.) says that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi

Wasallam) said, "This world will not come to an end until one person from my

progeny does not rule over the Arabs, and his name will be the same as my

name." (Tirmidhi)


Hadhrat Ali (R.A.) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)

said, "Even if only a day remains for Qiyamah to come, yet Allah will surely

send a man from my family who will fill this world with such justice and

fairness, just as it initally was filled with oppression." (Abu Dawood)


*His Features*


Hadhrat Abu Saeed Khudri (R.A.) relates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi

Wasallam) said, "Al Mahdi will be from my progeny. His forehead will be

broad and his nose will be high. He will fill the world with justice and

fairness at a time when the world will be filled with oppression. He will

rule for seven years."


*Other ahadeeth inform us that:*


* He will be tall

* He will be fair complexioned

* His facial features will be similar to those of Rasulullah (Sallallahu

Alayhi Wasallam)

* His character will be exactly like that of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi


* His father's name will be Abdullah

* His mother's name will be Aamina

* He will speak with a slight stutter and occasionally this stutter will

frustrate him causing him to hit his hand upon his thigh.

* His age at the time of his emergence will be forty years

* He will receive Knowledge from Allah.


*His Emergence and Rule*


Hadhrat Umme Salmah (R.A.) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi

Wasallam) said, " After the death of a Ruler there will be some dispute

between the people. At that time a citizen of Madina will flee (from

Madinah) and go to Makkah. While in Makkah, certain people will approach him

between Hajrul Aswad and Maqaame Ibraheem, and forcefully pledge their

allegiance to him.


Thereafter a huge army will proceed from Syria to attack him but when they

will be at Baida, which is between Makkah and Madina, they will be swallowed

into the ground.


On seeing this, the Abdaals of Shaam as well as large numbers of people from

Iraq will come to him and pledge their allegiance to him. Then a person from

the Quraish, whose uncle will be from the Bani Kalb tribe will send an army

to attack him, only to be overpowered, by the will of Allah. This (defeated)

army will be that of the Bani Kalb. Unfortunate indeed is he who does not

receive a share from the booty of the Kalb. This person (Imam Mahdi) will

distribute the spoils of war after the battle. He will lead the people

according to the Sunnat and during his reign Islam will spread throughout

the world. He will remain till seven years (since his emergence). He will

pass away and the Muslims will perform his Janazah salaat." (Abu Dawood)


According to a Hadeeth, Sayyidena Eesa (A.S.) will lead the Janaazah of Imam

Mahdi (A.S.).


While the people will be pledging their allegiance to Imaam Mahdi, a voice

from the unseen will call out:


"This is the representative of Allah,

The Mahdi, listen to him and obey him"


This announcement which will be heard by all those present will establish

his authenticity. Another sign which will indicate the authenticity of Imaam

Mahdi wil be that in the Ramadhaan prior to his emergence an eclipse of the

sun and moon will occur.


Hadhrat Abu Umamah (R.A.) says that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)

said: "There will be four peace agreements between you and the Romans. The

fourth agreement will be mediated through a person who will be from the

progeny of Hadhrat Haroon (A.S.) and will be upheld for seven years."


The people asked: "O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam), who will be

the Imaam of the people at the time?"


Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "He will be from my progeny

and will be forty years of age. His face will shine like a star and he will

have a black spot on his left cheek. He will don two "Qutwaani" cloaks and

will appear exactly as a person from the Bani Israeel..." (Tabrani)


According to hadith narrated by Abu Saeed Khudri (R.A.) Rasulullah

(Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "...(regarding the rule of Imaam Mahdi)

the skies will rain down in abundance and the earth will yield forth its

crop in abundance, and those alive will desire that those who have already

passed away should have been alive to enjoy this prosperity..."


Hadhrat Buraidah (R.A.) says that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)

said: "There will be many armies after me. You must join that army which

will come from Khurasaan." (Ibn Adi)


Abu Hurairah (R.A.) says that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:

"(Armies carrying) black flags will come from Khurasaan. No power will be

able to stop them and they will finally reach Eela (Baitul Maqdas) where

they will erect their flags."


from: "Signs of Qiyamah"

by Mohammed Ali Ibn Zubair Ali


*More Hadeeth (with references)* (contributed by Bradley Bilal).


1) The Prophet (PBUH and HF) said: "Even if the entire duration of the

world's existence has already been exhausted and only one day is left

(before the day of judgment), Allah will expand that day to such a length of

time, as to accommodate the kingdom of a person from my Ahlul-Bayt who will

be called by my name. He will fill out the earth with peace and justice as

it will have been full of injustice and tyranny (by then)."

Salama, the wife of the Prophet)

4) The Prophet (PBUH and HF) said: "We (I and my family) are members of a

household that Allah (SWT) has chosen for them the life of the Hereafter

over the life of this world; and the members of my household (Ahlul-Bayt)

shall suffer a great affliction and they shall be forcefully expelled from

their homes after my death; then there will come people from the East

carrying black flags, and they will ask for some good to be given to them,

but they shall be refused service; as such, they will wage war and emerge

victorious, and will be offered that which they desired in the first place,

but they will refuse to accept it till they pass it to a man from my family

(Ahlul-Bayt) appears to fill the Earth with justice as it has been filled

with corruption. So whoever reaches that (time) ought to come to them even

if crawling on the ice/snow since among them is the Vice-regent of Allah

(Khalifatullah) al-Mahdi."

al-Sawa'iq al-Muhriqah, by Ibn Hajar, Ch. 11, section 1, pp 250-251


5) Abu Nadra reported: We were with the company of Jabir Ibn Abdillah...

Jabir Ibn Abdillah kept quite for a while and then reported Allah's

Messenger (may peace be upon him) having said: "There would be a Caliph in

the last (period) of my Ummah who would freely give handfuls of wealth to

the people without counting it." I said to Abu Nadra and Abu al-Ala: Do you

mean Umar Ibn Abd al-Aziz? They said: NO, (he would be Imam Mahdi).

6) "al-Mahdi is from our Ahlul-Bayt, no doubt Allah will enforce his

appearance within a night (i.e., his coming is very unpredictable and is

very sudden)."

*Jesus (Isa) A.S. in Islam, and his Second Coming*


by Mufti A.H. Elias


*I. Jesus (A.S.) In Islam*


Muslims do believe that Isa (A.S.) was sent down as a Prophet of Allah

(God), but he (Jesus) is not God or Lord, nor the son of God. Muslims do not

believe that Isa (A.S.), also known as Jesus by Christians and others, is

dead or was ever crucified. We believe that he was raised to heaven and is

there, and will descend at the appointed time, end all wars, and bring peace

to the world. Like Jesus (A.S.), Muhammad (Peace be upon him) is also a

Prophet and Messenger. Muhammed (P.B.U.H.) is the last Prophet, though, and

there is none after him. Hence, Islam is the last religion, complete, with

the Holy Qur'an as the unchanged and perfect word of God for over 1400

years, as God promised to preserve it till the last day for all of

humankind, unlike sacred texts of other religions which have mulitple

versions and are "revised" periodically. God, or Allah in Arabic, is Divine

and Supreme Being and Creator.


*What the Holy Qur'an says about Jesus:*


They slew him not, nor did they crucify him but it was made dubious to them.

(Holy Qur'an, Surah Nisaa, Verse 157)


Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) himself told of the coming of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be

upon him). In the Bible, Jesus (A.S.) says,


If you love me, Keep my commandments. And I will pray to the Father and He

shall give you another comforter that he may abide with you forever.

(Bible, John 14-15/16)


But when the comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father,

even the spirit of Truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify

of me, and he also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the


(Bible, John 15-26/27)


I have yet many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now. How be

it when he, the spirit of Truth will come, he will guide you into all truth,

for he shall speak not of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear, that he

shall speak, and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me, for

he shall receive of mine, and he shall show it unto you.

(Bible, John 16-12/14)


Ulema (learned scholars in Islam) have said that the person who is described

by Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) to come after him - in the above verse - does not

comply with any other person but Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).


In this case, the "comforter" he mentions is none other than Prophet

Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and his laws and way of life (Shariah) and Book

(Holy Qur'an) are those that Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) asks his followers to abide



The "person" whom Jesus (A.S.) prophecised will come after him, is called

Pargaleeta in the Bible . This word was deleted by interpreters and

translators and changed at times to "Spirit of Truth" and at other times, to

"comforter" and sometimes "Holy Spirit." The original Greek and its meaning

is "one whom people praise exceedingly." The sense of the word, then, is

applicable to the word Muhammad in Arabic, since Muhammad means "the praised



Jesus (A.S.) also says in the Bible,


... and a little while and you shall not see me; and again a little while,

you shall see me because I go to the Father.

(Bible, John 16:16)


... and the Holy Qur'an says,


And surely they slew him not. But Allah (God) raised him unto Himself.

(Holy Qur'an, Surah Nisaa, Verse 157-158)


As such, Muslims believe that Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) was raised to heaven.

According to Hadith, he is on the second heaven. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu

Alayhi Wasallam=Peace be upon him) mentioned, "During the Meraj (Ascension),

I met Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) on the second heaven. I found him of medium

stature, reddish white. His body was so clean and clear, that it appeared as

though he had just performed ghusal (ablution, cleansing of the entire body)

and come." In another Hadith, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)

mentioned to the Jews that, " Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) is not dead, he will most

surely return to you before Qiyamat (the Day of Judgement)."


May Allah Guide all people to the Truth. Aameen.


*II. Hadhrat Isa's (A.S.) Descension - The Physical Features of Hadhrat Isa



He will resemble the famous Sahabi (A.S.) Hadhrat Urwa bin Masoodi (R.A.).

He will be of average height and red and white in colour. His hair spread to

the shoulders, straight, neat and shining as after a bath. On bending his

head, it will seem as if pearls are falling. He will have an armour on his

body. He will be wearing two pieces of cloth light yellow in color.


*His Descension*


He will descend on a Jamaat (group) that will be righteous at the time and

comprising of 800 men and 400 women. The people will be preparing for war at

the time against Dajjal (the anti-Christ). It will be time for Fajr prayers,

and Imam Mahdi will be the Amir (leader). From the darkness of the dawn, a

sound will suddenly be heard that "one who listens to your pleas has come"

-- the righteous people will look everywhere and their eyes will fall on Isa

(A.S.). Briefly, at the time of Fajr, Isa (A.S.) will descend. When

descending, Isa (A.S.)'s hands will be on the shoulders of two angels

(according to another source (Kab Abrar), a cloud will carry him). On their

insistence Hadhrat Isa will introduce himself. He will inquire about their

enthusiasm and thoughts on Jihad against Dajjal. Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will

descend on the eastern side near the Minaret in Damascus (or in

Baitul-Muqaddus by Imam Mahdi). At the time Imam Mahdi will have proceeded

forward to lead the Fajr Salaat. The Iqamat of the Salaat would have been

said (already recited) and Imam Mahdi will call Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) for

Imamat (to lead the prayer), but he (Hadhrat Isa (A.S.)) will instead tell

Imam Mahdi to lead the prayer since the Iqamat of that Salaat has already

been said for him. Thus Imam Mahdi will lead the prayer, and Hadhrat Isa (

A.S.) will follow him. After the ruku, he will make this statement: "Allah

has killed Dajjal and the Muslims have appeared."


*The Killing of Dajjal (anti-Christ) and the Victory of the Muslims*


After the completion of Fajr Salaat (congregational dawn prayers), Hadhrat

Isa (A.S.) will open the door behind him where Dajjal accompanied by 70,000

Yahudis (Jews) will be. He will indicate with his hand to move away between

him (Hadhrat Isa (A.S.)) and Dajjal. Dajjal will then see Hadhrat Isa


At that time every Kafir on whom the breath of Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will

reach, will die. His breath will reach up to the distance of his eyesight.

The Muslims will then come down from the mountains and break loose on the

army of Dajjal. There will be war, Dajjal will retreat, and Hadhrat Isa


will pursue Dajjal. Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will have two flexible swords and one

shield with him and with these he will kill Dajjal at the Gate of Hudd. He

willl show the Muslims the blood of Dajjal which will get on his shield.

Eventually the Yahudis will be selected and killed. The swine will be killed

and the cross broken. People will revert to Islam. Wars will end, and people

will return to their respective countries. One Jamaat (group) of Muslims

will remain in his service and companionship.


Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will go to Fajr Rawha and perform Haj or Umrah (or both)

from there. He will also go to the grave of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi

Wasallam) and present his greetings and Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi

Wasallam) will reply. People will live comfortable lives. The wall of Yajooj

and Majooj (Gog and Magog) will then break.


*III. The Blessings of Hadhrat Isa (Jesus) (A.S.)*


1 Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will descend and stay on earth.

2 His descension will be in the last era of the Ummat.

3 He will be a just ruler and a fair judge.

4 His ummat will be the Khalifa (deputies) of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi


5 He will act himself and instruct others on the Qur'an and Hadith

(Shariat/Tradition of Islam).

6 He will lead people in Salaat (Prayer).

7 He will stay on earth for a period of 40 years after descending. The will

be the best era of the Ummat after the first era of Islam.

8 Allah will protect his companions from Jahannam.

9 Those who will save the Deen of Islam by associating themselves with

Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will be amongst the most loved by Allah Ta'ala.

10 During this period all other religions and mazhabs besides Islam will

perish, hence there will be no kuffaars (non-believers) in the world.

11 Jihad will be stopped.

12 No Khiraaj will be taken.

13 Nor Jizya (protection tax) money from the kafirs (non-believers)

14 Wealth and property will be in surplus to such an extent that there will

be no one to accept the wealth of the other (everyone will be independent).

15 Receiving Zakaat (Alms-giving, Charity to poor) and Saadaqa will be

discarded (as there will be no poor to receive them!).

16 The people will love the sajda (prostration to God) more than the world

and what it consists of.

17 All types of Deeni (religious) and worldly blessings will descend on

earth (many halaal (lawful) things will be created).

18 There will be peace, harmony and tranquility during the time of Hadhrat

Isa (A.S.)'s stay in the world.

19 There will be no animosity for a period of seven years, even between two


20 All hearts will be free from miserliness, envy, hatred, malice and


21 For a period of forty years no one will fall ill or die.

22 Venom will be taken out of all venomous animals.

23 Snakes and scorpions will not harm anyone to the extent that if a child

put his hand in its mouth, he will not be harmed.

24 Will animals will not harm anyone.

25 If a man will pass a lion, he will not be troubled or harmed, or even if

any girl will open its mouth to test if it will do anything.

26 The camels will graze among lions, cheetahs with cattle and the jackals

with goats.

27 The fertility of the land will increase to such an extent that even if a

seed is planted in a hard rock, it will sprout.

28 A pomegranate will be so huge that a jamaat will be able to eat it and

the people will use its peel as shade.

29 There will be so much barakaat (blessing) in milk that a camel will

suffice for a huge jamaat, a cow for a tribe and a goat for a family.

30 In short, life will be most pleasant after the descension of Jesus (A.S



*His Marriage, Death and Deputies*


After his descension on earth, Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will marry. He will have

children, and he will remain on earth 19 years after marriage. He will pass

away and Muslims will perform his Janaza Salaat and bury him net to

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). (Tirmidhi)
