17. Government Of The Rightous Till Resurrection

• The regime of Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) is the commencement of the government of Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) on the earth.1

• The government of Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) is that very government, which has been promised by Allah, the Almighty, in the Holy Quran.2

• No time frame has been determined for the government of the righteous. Rather, it shall survive till Resurrection.3
