During the appointment of Uthman ibn Saeed as the deputy and representative of the Imams, one of his trusted helpers and assistants was his son, Muhammad ibn Uthman, who grew learning not only from his father, but Imam Askari (p) as well.

Thus, after the passing of the first deputy, the important duties of Imam Mahdi’s deputy had to pass without pause, interruption or disruption. The appointment of Muhammad ibn Uthman, as the second deputy, lasted the longest of the four deputies, approximately 40 years.
