In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Return Of Prophet 'Isa ibn Maryam

Hazrat Isa (Jesus) comes back to Earth

Hazrat Isa (alayhi salaam) will come down from the eastern Minaret of the Masjid in Damascus with two Angels. Hazrat Isa (as) will be wearing Mairoodatain garment. Both his hands will be on the wings of two Angels. [Ahmad and Abu Daawood]

When Hazrat Isa (as) lowered his head down, from his head, drops of water will fall as if they were pearls. And when he puts his head up, drops like pearls would scatter from it. Imam Mahdi and the Muslims will recognize Hazrat Isa (as) from this sign. The people will have congregated for the prayer and Imam Mahdi will see Hazrat Isa (as). Imam Mahdi will request Hazrat Isa (as) to take over the administration and lead the prayer, but Hazrat Isa (as) will say, "You lead the prayer." Imam Mahdi will lead the Salaat (prayer). [Ahmad and Abu Daawood]

Next morning Imam Mahdi will lead the Muslim army to the battle field and Hazrat Isa (alayhi salaam) will advance towards Dajjal on horseback with a spear in his hands. The Muslim army will attack the army of Dajjal and there will be a severe fight. During the battle the breath of Hazrat Isa (as) will be such that it will reach the limits of eye-sight and all the infidels who will come in its range will die. On seeing Hazrat Isa (as) the Dajjal will dissolve just as salt dissolves in water and will try to escape and will be pursued by Hazrat Isa (as). Dajjal will be killed by Isa (as) with the spear at a place called Ludd (village near Jerusalem). [Muslim and At-Tirmidhi]

The Jews will start to run away but they will not be able to hide. When a Jew hides behind a rock, the rock will call the Muslim soldiers out and say: "There is a Jew hiding behind me, kill him!" If a Jew hides behind a tree trunk, the tree will call to a Muslim soldier saying, "There is a Jew hiding behind me. Kill him". Everything will talk except a tree called Al-Gharqad, which will not tell a Muslim if a Jew is hiding behind it. This tree is very holy for the Jews. [Al-Bukhari, Muslim and Ahmad]

In this way Dajjal followers will be killed. After the death of Dajjal, there will be peace. Hazrat Isa (as) and Imam Mahdi will start visiting places, and they will meet those people who refused to believe in Dajjal. They will be satisfied with them and will satisfy them by giving them glad tidings of Heaven (Jannah). [Muslim]

Hazrat Isa (as) will crush the cross, kill the pig, remove the Jizyah. After this the people will have a good life. Peace and safety will occur over the earth, to the degree that lions will graze with camels, leopards with cows and wolves with sheep. A child will play with snakes, yet they will not harm him. [Ibn Majah]

Sometime will pass, then Imam Mahdi will pass away. Hazrat Isa (as) will offer his funeral prayer and bury him. Imam Mahdi will have ruled for nine years. After that, Hazrat Isa (as) will stay with the people and will rule the world. During his reign, Ya'jooj Ma'jooj will appear...

Allah subhanwata'ala knows best.
