I need Shia narrations of Mahdi and eesa (Jesus) bin Maryam when they meet for the first time.

Kindly help me.May Allah reward you suitably.

Spoke to many Shia they didn't give any source.


It is reported that Jesus will say to al-Mahdi,

“I was raised as a minister not as a commander.”

[Sirat al-Mustaqim, 2, 220]

Hudhayfah reported that the Prophet (S) said,

“Al-Mahdi will turn his face to Jesus when he descends as if water were dropping from his hair, and will say to him, ‘Go ahead and say the prayer.’ Jesus will say, ‘The prayer has been set up only for you.’ So, Jesus will pray behind a man who is among my sons.”

[Sirat al-Mustaqim, 2, 257]

This is what will happen when Isa descends.

  • Thanks, for your help, is that hadith(257) saheeh as per shia? – Abu AbdulQayyum May 18 '17 at 17:29
  • It is saheeh from both Shia and Sunni. – Muslim_1234 May 18 '17 at 18:23
  • Here too, Mahdi is relinquishing lead of salat to eesa, Ali bin abu talib didn't act in such a way when he was the amir ul mumineen – Abu AbdulQayyum May 19 '17 at 4:57
