In practice, submission to Allah means to obey His injunctions as given in the Holy Qur’an and as exemplified by Sunnah the practice of the Prophet sallallaho alehe wassallum. As successor to the Prophet sallallaho alehe wassallum, the Caliph was the head of the Muslim community and his primary responsibility was to continue in the path of the Prophet sallallaho alehe wassallum. Since religion was perfected and the door of Divine revelation was closed at the death of the Prophet sallallaho alehe wassallum, the Caliph was to make all laws in accordance with the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
He was a ruler over Muslims but not their sovereign since sovereignty belongs to Allah alone. He was to be obeyed as long as he obeyed Allah.
He was responsible for creating and maintaining conditions under which it would be easy for Muslims to live according to Islamic principles, and to see that justice was done to all.
Hazrat Abu Bakr r. Obey me as long as I obey Allah hkilafat His Messenger sallallaho alehe wassallum. When I disobey Him and His Prophet sallallaho alehe wassallum, then obey me not.
Khilafat-e-Rashida by Zaid Hamid
They are the first four Caliphs: Many Caliphs came later in the Muslim razhida after the Khulfa -ur Rashideen rizvanullah alehim ajmaeen took their veils to the another world but the Caliphs who came after them in the Muslim world could not ever match the first four Khualfa – ur Rashideen rizvanullah alehim ajmaeen and the last very good and very successful Caliph to come in the Muslim world rashlda be Hazrat Imam Al-Mahdi.
They lived simple and righteous lives and strove hard for the religion of Allah.
Their justice was impartial, their treatment of others was kind and merciful, and they were one with the people – the first among equals. After these four, the later Caliphs assumed the manners of kings and emperors and the true spirit of equality of ruler and ruled diminished to a considerable extent in the political life of Muslims. It should be clearly understood that the mission of Prophet Muhammad may Peace Be Upon Himand hence that of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs, was not political, social or economic reform, although such reforms were a logical consequence of the success of this mission, nor the unity of a nation and the establishment of an empire, although the nation did unite and vast areas came under one administration, nor the spread of a civilization or culture, although many civilizations and cultures developed, but only to deliver the message of Allah to all the peoples of the world and to invite them to submit to Him, while being the foremost among those who submitted.
Khilafat E Rashida
The primary responsibility of an Islamic government is still the same as it was in the days of the early Caliphs: Any government which is committed to such a policy is truly following the message delivered by the Prophet may Peace Be Upon Him. Reference for detailed study: With the martyrdom of Hazrat Ali karamullah wajho, the first and most notable phase in the history of Muslim peoples came to an end.
All through this period it had been the Book of Allah and the practices of His Messenger – khilafxt is, thc Qur’an khilzfat the Sunnah – which had guided the leaders and the led, set the standards of their moral conduct and inspired their actions.
It was the time when the ruler and the ruled, the rich and the poor, the powerful and the weak, were uniformly subject to the Divine Law. rasyida
It was an epoch of freedom and equality, of God-consciousness and humility, of social justice which recognized no privileges, and of an impartial law which accepted no pressure groups or vested interests.
