The birth anniversary of our beloved Imam Mahdi is coming in a few days and I can see all the people loving him are trying to prepare for his birth anniversary in different ways.
Imam Mahdi is our twelfth Imam and the promised saviour who will return and fill the earth with the equity and justice. he is the only man left from the descendants of Imam Hussain (PBUH) and the holy prophet Muhammad and all the other eleven Imams even the other prophets has informed us about the last savior of man , Imam Mahdi.
I recently found a quote by Imam Hussain (PBUH) about the similarities of Imam Mahdi to the holy prophets Noah, Abraham, Jesus, Moses, Job and the prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon them). Imam Hussain has introduced Imam Mahdi as “our Qaem (al-Qaem)” in this quote and it’s interesting to know that Imam Mahdi will also introduced himself to the people by this name at the time of reappearance. May Allah Hasten the reappearance of him.
The quote by Imam Hussain is a bit long so I prepared it as several images in a way that each image includes the similarities to one prophet:

The complete quote of Imam Hussain in Arabic in Kashf al-Ghumma, V.3, p.329:
فی القائم منا سنن من الانبیاء سنة من نوح وسنة من ابراهیم وسنة من موسى وسنة من عیسى وسنة من ایوب وسنة من محمد صلى الله علیه وآله وسلم فأما من نوح فطول العمر واما من ابراهیم فخفاء الولادة واعتزال الناس واما من موسى فالخوف والغیبة واما من عیسى فاختلاف الناس فیه واما من ایوب فالفرج بعد البلوى واما من محمد صلى الله علیه وآله وسلم فالخروج بالسیف [کشف الغمة، ج 3، ص 329.]
The translation of the quote by Imam Hussain to Persian:
امام حسین علیه السلام فرمود: در قائم ما سنّتها و ویژگیهایى از پیامبران وجود دارد: از نوح علیه السلام عمر طولانى، از ابراهیم علیه السلام مخفى بودن ولادت و دورى گزینى از مردم، از موسى علیه السلام ترس و غیبت، از عیسى علیه السلام اختلاف مردم درباره او، از ایوب علیه السلام گشایش پس از گرفتاریها، و از محمّد علیه السلام قیام با شمشیر [کشف الغمة، ج 3، ص 329.]

Today , the people of the world need a saviour who saves the world from the disease, poverty ,hunger, racism, injustice and inequity.
The saviour is promised in all religions and all we should do is to ask God to send him back to us.
but who is the saviour of the mankind?
Muslim people believe that the saviour is a man from the descendants of Imam Hussain, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson; The man who is called Mahdi or Imam Mahdi according to the quotes by the prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Shia Muslim people believe that Imam Mahdi is living now among us although the people of the world do not know him and today is the anniversary of his birthday.
But what about the holy prophet Jesus?
Shia Muslims believe that the holy prophet Jesus will descend and help Imam Mahdi to save the world. read the following quote by the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) :
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.
Al-Amali, Al-Shaykh Al-Saduq, Vol. 1, p. 287
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

Merry Christmas to all of our Christian brothers and sisters and Happy birthday of the Prophet Jesus to all of you.
Prophet Jesus is one of the five greatest prophets sent by God to us.
The name of the Prophet Jesus, the son of Mary is in the holy Quran and in the quotes by the prophet Muhammad and the Shia Imams. As an example, Imam Mahdi who is the 12th Shia Imam, has saluted the prophet Jesus early in Ziyarat Nahiya (Read Ziyarat Nahiya at here).
This Ziyarat was sent to us as a letter. It is about what happened to Imam Hussain, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson, on the day of Ashura at Karbala. Ziyarat Nahiya is one of the famous Ziyarats of Imam Hussain. Thus Shia Muslim people read it on the day of Ashura or other days.
In the following Images, You can see the salutation of Imam Mahdi to the prophet Jesus in Ziyarat Nahiya.
Peace be upon Jesus, the spirit of God and his word
-A part of Ziyrat Nahiya by Imam Mahdi
السلام علی عیسی روح الله و کلمته
زیارت ناحیه مقدسة-
Whoever believes in the unique God and the religion he sent to the people by all of his prophets, admires the prophet Muhammad’s grandson, Imam Hussain, who revived the religion through all he had on the day of Ashura.
