I have just read this writing. Difference between Khilafah and Malookiyyah. Three questions are popping up in my mind.
One, if Mulookiyyat means the system that is based on "transferring" authority to sons, then, Syedna Ali should be called as the pioneer of Mulookiyyat instead of Syedna Muawiyah because he, first, transferred the authority to his son Syedna Hasan?
Two, if Mulookiyyat means the system that is based on "receiving" authority from father, then,…
My question is that what is difference between Khilafah and Malookiyah and why is Hazrat Ameer Muawiyah (rta) mostly blamed for that. And is Hazrat Muawiyah really responsible for turning Khilafah to Malookiyah?
It is obvious that the issue of Khelafat was always a difficult issue in the history of Islam and one that affects Islam a lot:
Several ahadith approve Ali's (rta) khilafat. Abu Bakar's (rta) khilafat was either an accident or deliberation. And in the light of the above; was he a true khalifah al-Rasool? Was Muawiya's decision to appoint Yazid as his successor, legitimate especially in the presence of Hussayn?
My question is why there are only four khalifas and not a fifth one? Furthermore I would like to ask how I can best explain to an Ahmadi about the true religion.
