The Ahmadi Religion of Peace & Light

The Imams & Mahdis (pbut)


Throughout time, God has guided humanity through a series of divine educators — known as manifestations of God.  The divine guide who walks upon the earth today is Imam Ahmed al-Hassan (peace be upon him), the vicegerent and successor of Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh).

The twelfth Imam, Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh); The first Mahdi, Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh); and the second Mahdi, Aba Al-Sadiq (pbuh) were all mentioned by name in the final will and testament of prophet Mohammed (pbuhahf)
