I have gone through your answer for the arrival of Imam Mahdi. You have mentioned that Hazrat Isha will come from Heaven that time
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Dear Brother Burhan,
Asslam-o-Alekum, I have gone through your answer for the arrival of Imam Mahdi. You have mentioned that Hazrat Isha will come from Heaven that time. Please give reference from holy quran that Hadrat Isha is in heaven and he is alive. Also when he will come to earth he will be muslim or christian.

Jesus Isa alive and second coming
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: Please give reference from holy quran that Hadrat Isha is in heaven and he is alive.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verses 157-158:
157 That they (the Jews) said (in boast) "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah"; but they killed him not nor crucified him but so it was made to appear to them; and those who differ therein are full of doubts with no (certain) knowledge but only conjecture to follow; for of a surety they killed him not!
158 Nay Allah raised him (Jesus son of Mary (a.s.)) up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power Wise.
In light of the above absolutely clear Verses of the Glorious Quran, Allah Subhanah Himself Declares that neither did the Jews kill nor crucify the Noble Prophet Isa (a.s.) son of Maryam , but Allah Subhanah raised him up unto Himself.
In what exact state did the Lord Most High raise the Noble Prophet Isa (a.s.) unto Himself, or what is the exact status of the soul of the Noble Prophet Isa (a.s.) at this time in the Presence of Allah, etc. is known to none save Allah Subhanah Alone.
Your Question: Also when he will
come to earth he will be muslim
Although the Quran is silent about the issue of the second coming of Prophet Isa (a.s.), there are several authentic narrations from the Messenger of Allah (saws) which prophesize its happening. In light of the various narrations of the Prophet Mohamed (saws), it is absolutely clear that Prophet Isa (a.s.) will come, abide, follow, and enforce the Shariah of the Quran which was revealed on his brother and Prophet, the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws).
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.658 Narrated by Abu Huraira
Allah's Messenger (saws) said "How will you be when the son of Maryam (i.e. Prophet Isa (a.s.)) descends amongst you, and he will judge people by the Law of the Qur'an and not by the law of Gospel!
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4310 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
The Prophet (saws) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Isa (a.s.). He (Isa (a.s.)) will descend (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the Cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 293 Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah
I heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) say: Isa (a.s.), the son of Maryam, would then descend and their (Muslims') commander would invite him to come and lead them in prayer, but he would say: No, some amongst you are commanders over some (amongst you). This is the honour from Allah for this (Muslim) Ummah.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 2877 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
Hanzalah al-Aslami reported: I heard Abu Hurayrah as narrating from Allah's Messenger (saws) who said: By Him in Whose Hand is my life, Ibn Maryam (Isa (a.s.)) would certainly pronounce Talbiyah for Hajj or for Umrah or for both in the valley of Rawha.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
