Hadhrat Eisa (Jesus) alayhis salaam

The Physical Features of Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam

He will resemble the famous Sahabi Hadhrat Urwa bin Masoodi radhiyallahu anhu . He will be of average height and red and white in colour. His hair spread to the shoulders, straight, neat and shining as after a bath. On bending his head, it will seem as if pearls are falling. He will have an armour on his body. He will be wearing two pieces of cloth light yellow in color.

His Descension

He will descend on a Jamaa'at (group) that will be righteous at the time and comprising of 800 men and 400 women. The people will be preparing for war at the time against Dajjal (the anti-Christ). It will be time for Fajr prayers, and Imaam Mahdi will be the Amir (leader). From the darkness of the dawn, a sound will suddenly be heard that "one who listens to your pleas has come" -- the righteous people will look everywhere and their eyes will fall on Eisa alayhis salaam. Briefly, at the time of Fajr, Eisa alayhis salaam will descend. When descending, Eisa alayhis salaam's hands will be on the shoulders of two angels (according to another source (Kab Abrar), a cloud will carry him). On their insistence Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam will introduce himself. He will inquire about their enthusiasm and thoughts on Jihad against Dajjal. Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam will descend on the eastern side near the Minaret in Damascus (or in Baitul-Muqaddus by Imaam Mahdi). At the time Imaam Mahdi will have proceeded forward to lead the Fajr Salaat. The Iqamat of the Salaat would have been said (already recited) and Imaam Mahdi will call Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam for Imaamat (to lead the prayer), but he (Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam) will instead tell Imaam Mahdi to lead the prayer since the Iqaamat of that Salaat has already been said for him. Thus Imaam Mahdi will lead the prayer, and Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam will follow him. After the ruku, he will make this statement: "Allah has killed Dajjal and the Muslims have appeared."

The Killing of Dajjal and the Victory of the Muslims

After the completion of Fajr Salaat, Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam will open the door behind him where Dajjal accompanied by 70,000 Yahudis will be. He will indicate with his hand to move away between him (Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam) and Dajjaal. Dajjaal will then see Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam. At that time every Kafir on whom the breath of Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam will reach, will die. His breath will reach up to the distance of his eyesight. The Muslims will then come down from the mountains and break loose on the army of Dajjaal. There will be war, Dajjal will retreat, and Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam will pursue Dajjaal. Hadhrat Eisa alayhis salaam will have two flexible swords and one shield with him and with these he will kill Dajjal at the Gate of Hudd. He willl show the Muslims the blood of Dajjaal which will get on his shield. Eventually the Yahudis will be selected and killed. The swine will be killed and the cross broken. People will revert to Islam. Wars will end, and people will return to their respective countries. One Jamaa'at (group) of Muslims will remain in his service and companionship.

Hadhrat Eisa (Jesus) alayhis salaam will go to Fajr Rawha and perform Haj or Umrah (or both) from there. He will also go to the grave of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam   and present his greetings and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam   will reply. People will live comfortable lives. The wall of Yajooj and Majooj will then break.
