Establishing a Relationship with Imam Mahdi
Throughout the course of thousands of years, God has not rendered the Earth without a Holy representative to serve as a function of guidance to mankind. A continuation of divine mercy towards us is manifested in the twelve divinely-appointed Imams. While we have established the great status held by the Imams and Prophets, we have yet to truly humble ourselves towards understanding our duties towards them. . .
