There are several sects in Islam. Last Imam of which sect? As far as Imamiyah or Shiah Ithna Asghari sect is concerned yhr last Imam they are waiting for is Imam Mahdi who, it is expected may reappear any time at the time of maghrib (evening) prayer.
And as far as Ismaili Tayyibi sect is concerned last Imam known is Imam Tayyib. But unlike Ithna Asharis Ismaili Tayyabi sect does not believe that Imam Tayyib will reappear but an imam from his progeny. No onje knows when he will appear but they are all in waiting.

Who is the Last Imam? When is he to come? Is this in the Qur'an? Where does this belief come from?
The Muslim Perspective

Why did your omniscient and omnipotent god think it was a good idea to use a BOOK to relay his vitally important message to mankind?
Did God have to be created? Why or why not?
What is an easy way to demonstrate that open theism is false?
What is your response to the "Cosmological Argument" for the existence of God?
