Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] :

Mahdi [PBUH] is from my progeny and when he reappears, Jesus [PBUH], the son of Mary, will descend to help him. He will follow Mahdi [PBUH] and pray behind him.

قال رسول الله صلی الله علیه و آله:

مِن ذُُرَّیتی اَلمهدی اِذا خَرجَ نَزَل عیسَی بنُ مریمَ(علیه‌السلام) لِنُصرتِهِ فَقَدَّمَهُ وَ صلّی خَلفَهُ.

 

پیامبر اکرم صلی الله علیه و آله

مهدی (علیه السلام) از فرزندان من است، زمانی که قیام می‌کند، عیسی بن مریم (علیه‌السلام) برای یاری اش [از آسمان] فرود می‌آید و او را مقدّم می‌دارد و پشت سرش نماز می گذارد.

الامالی (شیخ صدوق)، ج 1، ص 287
