in response to reader comment: canonical Muslim history

Sir Daniel Pipes I am very much thankful to you. I have seen an article of Dawodi member with heading 'Canonical Muslim History' on dated Aug 15 2014 at 02:27.

What you think about . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . .his ideology after him?

For this purpose, I am exposing my belief before you. These Khalifahs were not the successor of Muhammad. The ideology of both was different from Muhammad.

After the death of Umar, Abdul-Rehman bin Awf (to whom Umar appointed at the time of his death 'for taking the decision of Khilafat') asked to Ali that "if you are appointed as a Khalifah then, will you follow the footsteps of Abu Bakr and Umar?". Ali replied "in any condition I will not follow the footsteps of them".

After that he asked the same question to Usman. Usman said "definitely I will follow the footsteps of both in every talk"; Usman was appointed as a third Khalifah.

The mutiny people killed to Usman.

By putting the pressure 'Ali was made as Khalifah'; but Ayesha declared war against Ali through the announcement for taking revenge on 'the killers of Usman' that "the killers are hidden within the armed forces of yourself". When Ayesha got out-of-the-way then Ma'aviyah came in the way for the war.

Even Ma'aviyah 'on seeing the defeat of self', he cheated in believing the 'decision of HAKAM'. Abu Musa was from the side of Ali, on the day of decision he accepted to Umru bin Al-Aas as HAKAM who was from the side of Ma'aviyah. Umru rejected 'to Ali as Khalifah', announced his decision that 'Ma'aviyah is Khalifah'. Now, it is very clear that 'Ali did not become the Khalifah' and 'Ma'aviyah became the fourth Khalifah'.
