Allah (swa) exhorts all children of Adam to follow whenever a prophet
appears. (see Al'Araaf ayah 35). Now if no prophet was to be sent by God
then why did He say so. To deceive us? Please note that this ayah is in
command mode and in no way can you interpret it as a command to those
people who died before the appearance of Prophet Muhammad (SAS)

There is no doubt that Prophet Muhammad (SAS) spoke at length about the
coming of Jesus as Mahdi to Muslim ummah. It does not mean that Mahdi will
be in the body of old Jesus. It can be proved from Quran that Jesus died a
natural death and when a person dies then Quran says that his soul will
not be returned till the day of qiama. Also if you study bilble you find
similar wrong belief among the Jews. Bible says that before the coming of
Messiah (Jesus) another Prophet (Elijah) whom was taken to heaven earlier
will return. When the Jews asked Issa (AS) about the return of Elijah, his
answer was that the prophesy was fullfilled in the person of prophet John.
Now let us assume the coming of Messiah for Muslims is to be fullfilled by
the coming of the very old Jesus. Since he is now going to be for the
whole world and not only for the Jews, they will ask him to explain his
answer which he gave them when ha came first time. They will say that
either you lied first time or you are lying now. Last time you said that
second coming was fullfilled in tha appearance of another person and now
you say it is fullfilled in the appearance of the same person.
