Title: Hadith on twelve successors.
Post by: Tanveer on July 26, 2013, 09:45:17 AM
The hadith in question goes as follows "There will be twelve caliphs after me, all of them will be from Quraish"

Now, I'm a bit confused here. Does this mean that a person that is not from Quraysh couldnt be Caliph? If so, what about the Ottomans. Aren't they considered Caliphs?
