Thank you yonason and this is indeed a very interesting Shia hadith and I just checked it and it is a hadith saheeh so it is a reliable hadith.

By the way the only interesting word in the hadith is the word القاءم instead of الامام القاءم or al-imam al-qa'm or al-mahdi because the word القاءم al-qa'm (Syriac Nahem and in Ibn Ishaq's sira you will find it as Munahemana) could very well be read as he who stands or he who rises from death (resurrection) which could very well be Jesus as mentioned in Shia eschatology so is this hadith talking about Jesus instead of the Shia al-imam al-qa'm?

It makes you wonder
