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.
