Allama Askari’s The Saqifa provides a comprehensive look at one of the most pivotal moments in Islamic history. Sayyid Murtadha Al-Askari meticulously examines the political coup that occurred immediately upon the death of the Prophet, whose consequences influenced the entirety of early Islamic history, enabling us to see this fateful event in an entirely new light. It is obligatory reading for anyone interested in understanding the political, social, and religious factors that acted on the formative period of the Islamic community. It is vital reading for those who are interested in determining exactly what happened throughout the political process that unfolded after the passing of the Prophet up until the death of Uthman, which led to the investiture of the office of the leadership of the community, so as to be able to evaluate the legitimacy of the process.
