Similarities between Imam Mahdi (ajtf) & Hazrat Jirjees

Hazrat Imam Mahdi (as) bears the special characteristics and more from the previous prophets. He is the embodiment of their virtues and qualities. He carries their signs and is the inheritor of all that they stood for and what was revealed upon them. The following article mentions the similarity between Hazrat Jirjees (as) and Imam Mahdi (as).

The Almighty Allah brought back the dead to life for Jirjees (as). A lady came to him and said, O righteous servant of God. We had a cow which was the source of our livelihood, but it is dead.” Jirjees said, Take this staff and put it on that cow and and say that Jirjees said, Get up by the permission of Allah. When that lady did thus, the cow became alive and the lady became a believer.

Imam Mahdi (as) is also such that the Almighty Allah would enliven the dead for him. (Beharul Anwar volume 14 page 447)
