Yes but we mustn't sit here and grief we must find his successor.
I agree Abu Bakr will be our next Caliph.
I propose Abu Bakr be the next caliph.
I propose Ali be the next Caliph
After the announcement of Bakr leadership people began to revolt aginst him.Eventually he was assasinated.
AS Umar the caliph that was chosen after Bakr was dying he chose six people to chose his successor.
After all the fighting through out the group they finally decided on Uthman but what they didn't know is that he would be a mistake because later on it was shown that he was a weak leader and only after a revolt and assassination was his family removed from power.
I propose the Ali should be caliph because he is related to the prophet.
I propose that Uthman be caliph because he is worthy of it.
After the failure of Uthman Ali was chosen as caliph but Uthman's family member M'awiya thought he was the rightful caliph. This is the start of the split between the Muslim people. The Sunni believes that anyone who is worthy should be their leader and the S'hia believe that their leader should be someone related to Muhammad.
