Why (AS) after name of Imam Mahdi (AF)?

(salam)

Isn't it incorrect to put "alaihis salaam" after the name of Imam Mahdi (AF) because he's still alive? :) I see that (AF) -- meaning "ajal-Allahu-faraja" -- is used in the name of the forum, but then (as) is all over the thread titles and in the red text at the top of the page...

Just wondering. :)

I do know what it means, but I always just associated the expression with those that have passed away. I suppose there's no reason it can't apply to those that are still alive, though...I guess that makes sense.

To the best of my knowledge, it can be common to use A.S. for Imam Mahdi as well. Although, seemingly, it is more common to use A.S. for other 11 Imams, and for the 12th Imam: A.J./ A.F. and so forth.
