  Saqifah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Saqifah, also known as "Saqifa Bani Saeda" or Saqifat Bani Sa'ida, was a roofed building used by the tribe, or banu, of Sa'ida, of the faction of the Khazraj, of the city of Medina in the Hijaz, northwestern Arabia.
One of the earliest accounts of Saqifah is to be found in Ibn Ishaq's sira, or biography of Muhammad.
According to this account, after the death of Muhammad the Ansar gathered at the Bani Sa'ida's saqifah while the closest relatives of Muhammad, Fatima and Ali and their relatives, were preparing Muhammad's body for burial.

 Succession to Muhammad - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Virtually all authorities agree that dormant fissures in the Muslim community, between the Meccan immigrants, the Muhajirun, and the Medinan converts, the Ansar, threatened to split the Ummah.
While they were engaged in washing the body and preparing it for burial, say the Shi'a, Abu Bakr and Umar invaded a meeting at Saqifah, proposed Abu Bakr as the new leader, and forced those assembled to submit, manhandling one of the Medinan elders who opposed them in the process.
However, even the accounts that agree that Saqifah was a falta, in Umar's words, a rushed and hasty decision, still stress that the decision at Saqifah would not have been binding upon Muslims unless they themselves had chosen to pledge fealty, to give their bay'ah, to Abu Bakr.

Saqifah - Also Known as "Saqifa Bani Saeda" where the usurpers gathered on the day of the Death of the Prophet Mohammed (AS)to appoint Abu Bakr as the Caliph of the Prophet, even though the Prophet had already designated Ali ibn Abi Talib as his successor.
The events of this day led to deep schisms in Islam and is widely believed to be the core reason for all the problems Islam has faced since then, including the tragic death of Husain ibn Ali, the Prophet Mohammed's grandson.

 Lesson Nine: The Formation of the Caliphal Order at the Saqifah
At the very same time, a group of the Helpers had convened a meeting at a pavilion nearby known as the Saqifah of the Bani Sa'idah in order to settle the matter of succession to the Prophet in conformity with their own wishes.
The Helpers claimed to be exceptionally privileged in that they had preceded others in Islam, had enjoyed the respect of the Messenger of God, peace and blessings be upon him and his family, and had struggled hard for the sake of Islam; this, they claimed, entitled them to the leadership.
Similarly, the Migrants claimed that they were the most deserving of the leadership, given the fact that they were from the same city as the Prophet and had abandoned everything for the sake of Islam and the Prophet.

 Lesson Four: The Objection of Ali to the Decision of the Companions
Some people ask why at the meeting held in the Saqifah Ali, peace be upon him, did not raise the issue of his appointment at Ghadir Khumm by the Messenger of God, peace and blessings be upon him and his family, to be his successor.
The answer is that the Imam did indeed raise the issue of Ghadir Khumm whenever he deemed it appropriate in order to prove the justice of his claim to the successorship and to object to the decision that had been taken at the Saqifah, thus reminding people of what had happened.
Apart from this, various factors prevented Ali, peace be upon him, from reacting strongly to what occurred at the Saqifah and caused him to choose the path of endurance and patience instead, a patience he himself described as akin to having "a thorn in the eye and a bone in the throat."[38]

 The Emergence of Shi'ism and the Shi'ites
The first was the one led by the members of the Prophet's Household; the other expressed itself at the Saqifah and in the Caliphate that emerged after the passing of the Prophet.
Clearly, the former meant belief in Guardianship (wisayah) and the Imamate [35], along with an emphasis on close kinship to the Prophet; and none of that reflected any belief in the idea of consultation.
Their position was only secondary, though one that always represents a numerically large portion of every society, regardless of how much politics may impinge upon it.

 LESSON TWENTY-SEVEN
So, consultations aimed at appointing a successor after the Prophet (Sa) are clearly against the wish of Allah and His Prophet, and are completely useless;however, abandoning this reality, we now want to ask whether after the Prophet (s.a.) consultative meetings were held, and if so, whether the majority opinion was upheld.
When the Prophet (s.a.) closed his loving eyes to the world, the Ansars, the original Medinese, gathered in a building called the Saqifah of the Bani Sa'adah, and pronounced that after the Prophet, government and walayat belonged to Sa'ad ibn 'Ubadah.
Some years after the proceedings of Saqifah, 'Umar said, at the time of his own Khalifate: "We have heard that one of you said that if 'Umar dies I shall swear allegiance to so-and-so.

He holds that the validity of allegiance could be established only when any of the Muslims manages to attain to it, whereat all the others should follow and obey him, and anyone lingering behind was considered out of the pale of Islam, that should be slain.
Would that ‘Umar ibn al-Khattàb was of this opinion on the Saqifah Day, never overruling the Muslims by his swear of allegiance to Abu Bakr, that was a slip against whose evil Allah has protected us, as he himself testified.

 Sermon 66
From what happened in the Saqifah of Bani Sa`idah it appears that the greatest argument of muhajirun against ansar and the basis of the former's success was this very point that since they were the kith and kin of the Prophet no one else could deserve the Caliphate.
Thus in connection with the events of Saqifah at-Tabari writes that when the ansar assembled in Saqifah of Bani Sa`idah to swear allegiance on the hand of Sa`d ibn `Ubadah, somehow Abu Bakr, `Umar and Abu `Ubaydah ibn al-Jarrah also got the hint and reached there.
It is strange that Abu Bakr who connects with the Prophet in the seventh generation above and `Umar who connects with him in the ninth generation above may be held of the tribe and family of the Prophet and he who was his first cousin, he is refused the status of a brother.

 With The Truthful
We noticed how the meeting of al-Saqifah was held all of a sudden, away of the attention of the Companions who were busy arranging for the burial of the Messenger (S), among whom being al-Imam 'Ali, al-Abbas with the rest of Banu Hashim, al-Miqdad, Salman, Abu Dharr, Ammar and al-Zubayr, beside many others.
When those who attended the Saqifah went out accompanying Abu Bakr to the mosque, calling for public oath of allegiance to him, and people were coming forward in groups and flocks voluntarily and forcibly, al-Imam 'Ali and his followers had not yet finished their holy duty as prescribed by their sublime morals.
Would that 'Umar ibn al-Khattab was of this opinion on the Saqifah Day, never overruling the Muslims by his swear of allegiance to Abu Bakr, that was a slip against whose evil Allah has protected us, as he himself testified.

During his last illness the prophet designated Abu Bakr to lead prayers in Muhammad's absence: Many took this gesture as an indication that Abu Bakr would succeed Muhammad.
Thus, upon the death of Muhammad (8 June 632), Abu Bakr became the first caliph, by the acclamation of the people present at the meeting of Saqifah.
Initially, 'Ali, Muhammad's son-in-law, disputed the succession, asserting his own title to the dignity; after a time, he too pledged his allegiance, but the difference of opinion as to his claims gave rise to the controversy which still divides the followers of the prophet into the rival factions of Sunnites and Shiites.

Though the consensus was about Sayyidna Abu Bakr himself but if could be well imagined that what elevated position was enjoyed by Abu Obaidah among the illustrious companions of the Holy Prophet.

Although Sayyidatu'n-nisa' Fatimah (p.b.u.h.) did not live in this world more than a few months after the death of the Prophet yet even this short period has a long tale of grief and woe (about her).
In this connection, the first scene that strikes the eyes is that arrangements for the funeral rites of the Prophet had not yet been made when the contest for power started in the Saqifah of Banu Sa`idah.
All these excesses were with a view to so obliterate the prestigious position of this house that it might not regain its lost prestige on any occasion.

Because of this, the Muslim Ummah was faced with the need for a leader to maintain unity and to organize their life after the Prophet (s.a.w.w.).
Thus, when the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.w.) had left this world, a small number of Muslims gathered together for a meeting at Saqifah and chose Abu Bakr as new Caliph of the Muslims and pledged their allegiance to him.

The first opinion is not correct because the Khilafah was contracted to Abu Bakr with those who were in the Saqifah (courtyard) of Banu Sa'edah.

On the other hand Umar Ibne Khattab had realised the dangerous situation and that is why he said that ‘Saqifah’ was an accident.
As mentioned by Tabari, Abu Bakr said that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) died when the people had not been far away from Jahiliya.

As historians assert, had the caliphate not been stolen from the Commander of the Faithful in the event of Saqifah, the foundations for oppression and wrongs done upon all the members of the Ahlul Bait would never have been laid.
