Title

Some Ansar and Muhajirin were that much concerned about Khilafat?

Question

i have read the shitie belief over Khilafat issue at your web. some questions aorse in my mind kindly answer.

1- If some ansar and muhajirin were that much concerned about Khilafat then the burriel arrangements of thier beloved Rasool then how we can say them true muslim because i think the burriel was more important then to appointment of khalifa at once and without any suggestion of majority.

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful  

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

-         The appointment of the Khalifah was, at that point, more important than the burial.

-         Also, whilst the dispute over the next Khalifah continued, some Sahabah were engaged in the burial arrangements.

-         Furthermore, the immediate appointment of the Khalifah was vital so as to prevent fitnah (social turmoil) within the Ummah.

And Allah knows best
