Naim Abu Said relates that the Messenger of Allah (saas) said: THE PERSON BEHIND WHOM ‘ISA (AS) SON OF MARYAM WILL PERFORM THE PRAYER (SALAT) IS OF MY LINE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)]. 1
 
 
Ibn Abi Shayba relates from Ibn Shirin in his Musannaf. He said:
HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) IS OF THIS COMMUNITY AND WILL ACT AS IMAM TO THE PROPHET ‘ISA (AS). 2


Naim Ibn Hammad relates from Abdullah Ibn Amr. He said: HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) IS HE WHO WILL DESCEND UPON ‘ISA (AS) SON OF MARYAM AND BEHIND WHOM HE WILL PERFORM THE PRAYER (SALAT). 3


 
Bukhari and Muslim relate from Abu Huraira. He said: WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN ‘ISA (AS) SON OF MARYAM DESCENDS AMONG YOU AND WHEN YOUR IMAM IS HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)? 4





Abu Naim narrates from Jabir, saying, the Messenger of Allah (saas) said: ‘Isa (as) son of Maryam will descend from the sky and Hazrat Mahdi (as), the spiritual leader of Muslims, will say to him, ‘Come and lead us in prayer (salat).’ BUT THE PROPHET ‘ISA (AS) WILL SAY, AS A BLESSING ON THAT COMMUNITY FROM ALLAH, ‘NO. SOME OF YOU ARE THE COMMANDERS OF OTHERS. (HE WILL MAKE HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) THE IMAM.) 5
 

Ibn Majah, Ravyani, Ibn Huzayma, Abu Avana, Haqim and Abu Naim relate from Abu Imama. He said the Messenger of Allah (saas) addressed us. Referring to the Dajjal, he said:...When the imam has taken his place in the front row to lead the morning prayer (salat), he will see that ‘Isa (as) son of Maryam has descended that morning. This imam [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will then withdraw to the back so the Prophet ‘Isa (as) can pass to the front. THE PROPHET ‘ISA (AS) WILL PLACE HIS HANDS ON HIS SHOULDERS AND SAY: “GO TO THE FRONT AND LEAD THE PRAYER (SALAT). BECAUSE THE CALL TO PRAYER HAS BEEN MADE FOR YOU.” AT THIS, THE IMAM [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL LEAD THEM IN PRAYER. 6


Abu Amr and Dani in the Sunan relate from Hudhaifa. He said the Messenger of Allah (saas) said: Hazrat Mahdi (as) will see that ‘Isa (as) son of Maryam has descended, and it will be as if water is dropping from his hair. And Hazrat Mahdi (as) will say to him, “Go to the front and lead the people in prayer (salat).” BUT THE PROPHET ‘ISA (AS) WILL SAY: “THE CALL TO PRAYER HAS BEEN MADE FOR YOU.” AT THIS, HE WILL PRAY BEHIND ONE OF MY CHILDREN [(HAZRAT MAHDI(AS)].” 7


Abu Amr and Dani in the Sunan relate from Jabir Ibn Abdullah that he said: The Messenger of Allah (saas) said: During the Dawn of the New Age, one from my community [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] will struggle for the true faith in Jerusalem until the coming of the Prophet ‘Isa (as). Hazrat Mahdi (as) will then say: “O PROPHET OF ALLAH! Come to the front and lead us in prayer.” THE PROPHET JESUS (AS) WILL SAY, “ONE OF THIS COMMUNITY [(HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] IS THE COMMANDER OF THE OTHERS. 8



 

Ahmad, Muslim, Ibn Jurayr and Ibn Hibban relate from Jabir Ibn Abdullah that he said: A group from my community will strive for the victory of truth (will wage war against the Dajjal) until Doomsday. And when ‘Isa (as) son of Maryam descends from the sky, their Commander (Hazrat Mahdi (as), their spiritual leader) will say to him, “Come and lead us in prayer (salat).” But he, as a blessing on the community from Allah, will say: “ONE OF YOU IS THE COMMANDER OF THE OTHERS.” (IN OTHER WORDS, HAZRAT MAHDI (AS), YOUR IMAM, IS AMONG YOU, AND IT IS HE WHO MUST LEAD YOU IN PRAYER.) 9


"As we know, the Prophet ‘Isa (as) will appear and destroy the Dajjal intellectually. It is a fact that THE PROPHET ‘ISA (AS) WILL NOT TAKE OVER COMMAND (THE SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP OF MUSLIMS) FROM HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) BECAUSE THEIR LEADER (Muslims’ spiritual leader) IS FROM THE QURAYSH. These two will be present among people, such that THE PROPHET ‘ISA (AS) WILL BE HIS VIZIER, NOT HIS COMMANDER. IT IS FOR THESE REASONS THAT HE WILL PRAY BEHIND AND FOLLOW HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)." 10
 
When their leader is Hazrat Mahdi (as), a pure individual, they will seek shelter in Jerusalem. At a time when their imam passes to the front to lead them in the morning prayer (salat), they will see that ‘Isa (as) son of Maryam, has descended in the morning. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will withdraw to allow the Prophet ‘Isa (as) to pass to the front. THE PROPHET ‘ISA (AS) WILL PUT HIS HANDS ON HIS SHOULDERS AND SAY TO HIM, “GO TO THE FRONT AND LEAD THE PRAYER (SALAT). BECAUSE THE CALL TO PRAYER HAS BEEN MADE FOR YOU....”11
 
 
 
... Hazrat Mahdi (as), the spiritual leader of Muslims, will say to ‘Isa (as) son of Maryam: “Come and lead us in prayer (salat).” AT THIS, ‘ISA (AS) WILL SAY, “NO. AS A BLESSING ON THIS COMMUNITY FROM ALLAH SOME OF YOU ARE THE COMMANDERS OF OTHERS.” (He will bestow the position of imam on Hazrat Mahdi (as).)12


In the Sharh Al-Masabih the Messenger of Allah (saas) says:

“JESUS (AS), THE SON OF MARYAM, IS AN AUTHORITATIVE JUDGE, NOT A GOVERNOR. IN OTHER WORDS, HE WILL DECLINE THE ROLE OF IMAM.

HE WILL MAKE HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) THE GOVERNOR AND WILL ENTRUST THE ROLE OF IMAM TO HIM.” 13
