The idea of Messiah comes from the Torah- which was written upon the Stone Tablets given to Musa (AS). In the Torah, the Messiah is the Kohen Gadol; a messiah is one anointed with the Oil of Anointing (Shemen haMishchah). This oil was entrusted to the Family of Harun (AS)- the First Kohen Gadol over Israel. No other person- aside from a direct descendant of Harun- may be in possession of or make the shemen hamishchah- on pains of death. The Torah stipulated very clearly that the oil may not be used upon the flesh of any other person than a descendant of Harun.

The first king over Israel was Musa (AS) and not Sha'ul- as many falsely claimed. The Torah stated expressly:

 תּוֹרָה צִוָּה-לָנוּ מֹשֶׁה מוֹרָשָׁה קְהִלַּת יַעֲקֹב
וַיְהִי בִישֻׁרוּן מֶלֶךְ בְּהִתְאַסֵּף רָאשֵׁי עָם יַחַד שִׁבְטֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל

Musa (AS) commanded us Torah- the inheritance of the congregation of Ya'aqub (AS); and he was king in Yeshurun when the heads of the people were gathered together- the united tribes of Israel.

Yeshurun is another name for Israel.

Allah commanded Musa (AS) to select Yehoshua ben Nun (AS) as his successor- he was the second of a long line of Shepherd Kings over Israel.

In the days of Eli and Shemuel (AS), Israel was in rebellion; the monarchy of the Israelite kings was a result of rebellion. There is no such thing as a Kingly Messiah in Torah. The prophet Yehezqel (AS) explained that in the end, the Israelite system would return to that of the Torah.
