Isa (Alaihis Salaam) returning as a follower of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

Q: I have heard that when Hazrat Isa Alayhis Salaam comes to this world he will come as a Nabi. But I am confused because we know that Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is the Final Prophet and Messenger after whom no New Prophet or Messenger will come to this World. Please clarify.

A: Hazrat Isa (Alayhis Salaam) will remain a Nabi, however he will come as a follower of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). He will not come as an independent Nabi with his own shariat.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
