Pearl of Wisdom

'Now it is obligatory upon a ruler that the distinction he achieves, or the wealth with which he has been exclusively endowed, should not make him change his behaviour towards those under him. Rather the bounties that Allah has bestowed on him should increase him in nearness to his people and in kindness towards his brethren. Beware then that it is my duty towards you that I should not keep anything secret from you except during war, nor should I decide any matter without consulting you except with regards to the commands of religion, nor should I postpone the fulfilment of any of your rights nor desist until I discharge it fully. And that all of you are equal to me in your rights. When I have done all this , it becomes obligatory upon you to thank Allah for this bounty and to obey me.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Nahj al-Balagha, Letter 50

As Imam Muhammad ibn Hasan al Mahdi is the current and present Imam of our time.

As it says ... "Verily I am going to make a caliph in the earth ". . . ( Holy Quran 2: 30) refers in the Tafsir's that there will always be a Caliph on Earth.

We plead allegiance to the living Imam as His sincere followers and helpers in propagating Islam.
