THE MAHDI WILL RESEMBLE THE
PROPHETS IN MANY WAYS

Imam Zayn al-Abidin said: "THERE WILL BE MANY SIMILARITIES BETWEEN OUR QAIM (THE MAHDI) AND THE MESSENGERS OF ALLAH. HE FULLY MATCHES EACH ONE OF THE PROPHETS NUH (AS), IBRAHIM (AS), MUSA (AS), 'ISA (AS), EYYUB (AS) AND MUHAMMAD (SAAS). He resembles Nuh in being long-lived; Ibrahim in the secrecy of his birth and his keeping away from people; Musa in his state of fear (intensity of the dangers facing the Mahdi and his facing such threats as being killed, traps, arrest, detention and exile) and his living in constant hiding; 'Isa in people falling into dispute regarding him (as some people say, 'The Mahdi will come' and others say, 'He will not come.'); Eyyub in finally being saved after tribulations (the blessed Mahdi will suffer many difficulties, sickness and woes but, like the Prophet Eyyup, he will escape them all through Allah's mercy) and Muhammad (saas) in appearing with a sword (The Mahdi possessing the sacred relics of our Prophet's (saas) holy standard, sword and shirt). (Kamal'ud-Din p. 322, 31. 3rd hadith)
