The Awaited One Foundation [AOF] is a non-profit organization, focused on education, empowerment, and enlightenment.

The AOF is based in Dearborn, Michigan and was founded in 2007 by a group of dedicated scholars, professionals, and students.

The work and activities of the AOF are based on the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and The Holy Household of The Prophet Muhammad [s] commonly known as the Twelver Shia faith.


The primary objectives of the AOF are:

  • To help prepare and pave the way for the return of The Awaited Saviour [aj] and his deputy the Prophet Jesus [as].
  • To promote an Islamic lifestyle by building a strong Islamic identity.
  • To educate others about the faith of Islam as taught by the Qur’an and The Holy Household [as].
  • To empower Muslims through education of one’s faith in becoming close to our creator.
  • To strive towards unity between Muslims and dialogue with other faiths.
