Including the views of a number of important commentators and scholars, among them Ibn al-‘Arabi, Ibn Khaldun, and Bediüzzaman Said Nursi, chapter 6 specifically addresses the relationship among Jesus, the Mahdi, and the Antichrist. Because the Mahdi is a signally important figure in the Shi?ite tradition of Islam, chapter 6 elucidates the Shi?ite perspective on Jesus and explores the importance of the Mahdi in Islamic mysticism. In all traditions, the basic relationship among these three figures is that Jesus and the Mahdi are figures of good who work together to combat the Antichrist, al-Dajjal in Arabic.

Keywords:   Jesus, the Mahdi, the Antichrist, Al-Dajjal, Shi?ite, Islamic mysticism, Ibn al-‘Arabi, Ibn Khaldun, Bediüzzaman Said Nursi
