Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
one of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is there any possibilities of more Dai's after 52 Dai
"Sayedna Molla Burhanuddin (TUS)" ?
plz do reply me the earliest.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The literal meaning of the Arabic word 'dai' is one who calls or invites.
Only the Prophets of Allah have the authority to come to mankind and declare that they have been chosen as the Messengers from Allah. All the other titles and people are chosen by men themselves.
If history is any indication, the current Dai will nominate someone to be his successor and the 53rd Dai. This is at the current Dai's discretion.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
