Saidina Ali, The First Caliph – Anwar Ibrahim

Is Saidina Ali the first Caliph?

In his talk during the Dialog Anak Muda Selangor at the Sunway Resort, Anwar Ibrahim said that Saidina Ali is the first Caliph.

The first Caliph is Caliph Abu Bakar Siddiq, followed by Caliph Umar ibn Al-Khattab, then Caliph Uthman ibn Affan.

Caliph Ali is actually the fourth Caliph of Islam.

Anyway, the followers of Syiah believe that Saidina Ali is the one who should be the first Caliph after Rasulullah S.A.W. passed away.

So do those who say that  Saidina Ali is the first Caliph are either the followers of Syiah or they do not study the history of the Caliphs.

If Anwar does not know the history of the Caliphs, then how can he become a good leader for the Muslims and giving talks in the mosques?

Or does Anwar really believe that Saidina Ali is the first Caliph?

And the most interesting fact is that his audience seems to agree with him because none of them say anything about it.
