Hadith
Caliph, also spelled calif, Arabic khalīfah (“­suc­ces­sor”), ruler of the Muslim com­mu­ni­ty. When the Prophet Muhammad died ( 632 CE), Abū Bakr suc­ceed­ed to his po­lit­i­cal and ad­min­is­tra­tive func­tions as khalīfah rasūl Allāh, “suc­ces­sor of the Mes­sen­ger of God,” but it was probably under ʿUmar ibn al-Khaṭṭāb, the second caliph, that the term caliph came into use as a title of the civil and re­li­gious head of the Muslim state.
