Imam Mahdi (A.S) and previous Prophets (P.B.U.T)

Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H&H.P) said, “Mahdi is from my progeny. His name is the same as my name. And his nickname is the same as my nickname. In his physique and character he looks exactly like me. He will be in a state of occultation and there will be confusion in which people will wander about (deviate). Then he will come forth like a sharp shooting star to fill the earth will justice and equity as it was filled before with injustice and inequity."
Imam Muhammad Al-Baqir (A.S) said, "Certainly in the Qaem of the Progeny of Muhammad (P.B.U.H&H.P) is the similarity to five prophets, Younis, Joseph, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (P.B.U.H&H.P)."
Thus, his similarity to Yunis is his reappearance after occultation. He looked like a young man in spite of his advanced age.
And, his similarity with Joseph is his occultation when he was away from the sight of the general, as well as the special people; due to the fear of his brothers.
His affair was hidden from his father and in such a condition when there was no distance between his father and family and his friends.
And his similarity with Moses is persistent fear, and his prolonged occultation and a secret birth, and his return by the permission of Allah (S.W.T), and his assistance by the people in subduing of the enemy.
And his similarity to Jesus is the controversy among the people with regard to him. A group of them says; 'He is not yet born.' Another group says, 'He is dead' and some say: 'He was killed and crucified.'
And his similarity with his own grandfather, Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H&H.P), is his advent with the sword. He shall slay the enemies of Allah (S.W.T) and Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H&H.P), and the unjust, and the tyrants."
Imam Sajjad (A.S) said, "In the Qaem is a similarity to Noah and that is his long life."
