A Thread On Reasons Behind
《Silence Of Ali(AS)After Saqifa》
○Role of Holy Prophet(PBUH)
1) The Holy Prophet had told Imam Ali: "Your position is like that of Ka'bah. People (Muslims) go to Ka'bah but that august House never approaches anyone. Therefore after my death, if people come to you and swear the oath of allegiance you accept it,
and if they do not come to you and swear the oath of allegiance, then you do not go to them."

Usudul Ghabah fi Tamizis Sahaba, Allama Ali ibn Muhammad, vol. IV, p.31;

2) The Holy Prophet had advised Imam Ali(a) that,"After me you will have to face severe sufferings, but do not
get disheartened and do not lose patience; and when you find people craving for and trying their utmost to secure worldly gains, you mould your life for the Hereafter." [59]

Madarijun Nabuwwah, Abdul Haq Muhaddith Dehlavi, vol. II, p. 511.
○Lack Of Companions
1)When Holy Prophet(PBUH) Told Imam Ali(AS) That People Will Go Astray After Him Then Imam Ali(AS) Asked Holy Prophet(PBUH) What Should he Do

2)In Rijal Kashi, It Is Mentioned That Only 3 Sahaba Were Present Before Zohr Prayer's and After That Ammar(RA) came
4 Companions Were With Imam Ali(AS)
(Mentioned In Rijal Kashi)

3)Sermon Of Imam Ali(AS) In Nahjul Balagha
Then, I looked and found that there is no supporter for me except my family {ahla bayti}, so I refrained from thrusting them unto death.”
○Discord Among Muslims
people then had newly embraced Islam and the religion was like a goatskin full of milk which has frothed and the least sluggishness and negligence would spoil it and the trivial difference would turn it upside down

Sharh Nahj al-Balaghah, vol. 1, p. 308.
Syed Ali Khamenei in His Book 250 Years Old Man Also Mentioned the Same That Spread of Islam Was In its Initial Stage so It Was Better To Stay Behind Instead to Start A War.
MoreOver He Also Fought During Their Time In Incident Of "Radha"
○The Danger Posed by the Apostates {murtaddin}

After the demise of the Prophet (S), a large number of the Arab tribes that had accepted Islam during the last years of the Prophet’s (S) life turned back from the religion and became apostate, and this danger always seriously
threatened Medina. As such, in order not to weaken the government in Medina in front of them, ‘Ali (‘a) was forced to keep silent. ‘Ali (‘a) says:

I swear by Allah that at that juncture it could not even be imagined that the Arabs would snatch the seat of the caliphate from the
family and descendants of the Holy Prophet (S) and that they would be swearing the oath of allegiance for the caliphate to a different person. At every stage, I kept myself aloof from that struggle of supremacy and power-politics till I found the heretics had openly taken to
heresy and schism and were trying to undermine and ruin the religion preached by our Holy Prophet (S).
I felt afraid that, even after seeing and recognizing the evil, if I did not stand up to help Islam and the Muslims it would be a worse calamity to me than my losing authority
and power over you, which was only a transient and short-lived affair. Therefore, when I stood up amidst the sweeping surge of innovations and schism the dark clouds of heresy dispersed, falsehood and schism were crushed and the religion was saved.
3.Najh al-Balaghah, Letter 62
Imam al-Hasan (‘a) also writes in a letter to Mu‘awiyah: “Since we were afraid that the hypocrites and the other Arab parties could render a blow to Islam, we ignored our right.”

Ali ibn al-Husayn Abu’l-Faraj al-Isfahani, Maqatil at-Talibiyyin (Qum: Manshurat ash-Sharif ar-Radi)
In the event of Saqifah, these murtadin were also siding with the Quraysh. As narrated by Abu Mikhnaf, a number of Arabs, who had to the vicinity of Medina for transactions and were present in Medina during the demise of the Prophet (S), had physical role in urging the people to
pay allegiance to Abubakr

(Muhammad ibn Muhammad ibn an-Nu‘man Mufid, Al-Jamal, 2nd edition (Qum: Maktab al-A‘lam al-Islami (Central Publication), 1416 AH), pp. 118-119)
○ The Safety of the Progeny of the Prophet (S)

فَنَظَرْتُ فِإِذا لَيسَ لي مُعينٌ إلاّ أهلُ بَيتى فَضَنَنْتُ بِهِمْ عَنِ المَوْتِ.

“Then, I looked and found that there is no supporter for me except my family {ahla bayti}, so I refrained from thrusting them unto death
The original inheritors of the Prophet (S) and the upright adherents of the religion are the members of the Prophet’s (S) family. They were the partner of the Qur’an, the second previous legacy of the Prophet (S) and the interpreters of the religious laws, and they showed to the
people the pristine and genuine Islam after the Prophet’s (S) demise. Their extinction would be an irreparable loss

Najh al-Balaghah, Sermon 26.
○ The Concrete Political Formation of the Shi‘ah after the Event of Saqifah
Although ‘Ali (‘a) distanced himself from the political scene with the formation of Saqifah, the Shi‘ah in the form of a particular group with a particular political orientation was formed after the
event in Saqifah and were collectively or individually defending ‘Ali(‘a).
They first gathered in Fatimah’s(‘a) house and refused to pay allegiance as they faced the onslaught of the Saqifah architects

Ahmad ibn Abi Ya‘qub ibn Wadhih, Tarikh al-Ya‘qubi, 1st edition vol.2,p. 126.
But since ‘Ali (‘a) was not pleased to act violently against them for the sake of the preservation of Islam, he challenged them to a debate and argumentation. Bara’ ibn ‘Azib thus narrates:

I missed the cases regarding Saqifah. As I went to the Mosque of the Prophet (S), I saw
Miqdad, ‘Ubadah ibn Samit, Salman al-Farsi, Abu Dharr, Hudhayfah, and Abu’l-Haytham ibn Tayyiham were talking about the event that took place after the demise of the Prophet (S). He went together to the house of Ubayy ibn Ka‘b who said that his view is the same with whatever
Hudhayfah would say"

Ibn Abi’l-Hadid, Sharh Nahj al-Balaghah, vol. 2, p. 51.

Finally, on that Friday, the Shi‘ah of ‘Ali (‘a) went to the Prophet’s (S) Mosque to debate with and condemn Abubakr. In this regard, Tabarsi thus narrates
Aban ibn Taghlib asks Imam as-Sadiq (‘a): “May I be your ransom! When Abubakr sat in the place of the Messenger of Allah (S), was there anyone who protested?” The Imam (‘a) said: “Yes; there were twelve persons from among the Muhajirun and the Ansar such as Khalid ibn Sa‘id;
Salman al-Farsi; Abu Dharr; Miqdad; ‘Ammar; Buraydah Aslami; Abu’l-Haytham ibn Tayyihan; Sahl ibn Hanif; ‘Uthman ibn Hanif; Khuzaymah ibn Thabit Dhu’sh-Shahadatayn; Ubayy ibn Ka‘b; and Abu Ayyub al-Ansari.

They gathered in a certain place and discussed together the event in
Saqifah and were thinking of a solution. Some said: “We shall go to the mosque and let Abubakr come down from the pulpit. Some others did not agree with this idea, considering it unadvisable. They then came to ‘Ali (‘a) and said: “We will go and pull Abubakr down from the pulpit"
The Imam (‘a)said:“They are many. Once you go ahead with this and act violently, they will come and say: “You pay allegiance otherwise we shall kill you.”Instead, you have to go to him and tell him what you have heard from the Messenger of Allah (S)and this is all of the proof.
They came to the mosque and the first person among them who spoke was Khalid ibn Sa‘id al-Umawi, saying: “O Abubakr! You are aware that after the Battle of Banu Nadhir, the Holy Prophet (S) said: ‘You have to know and keep my will. After me, ‘Ali shall be my caliph and successor
among you. My Lord has thus ordered me’.” After him, Salman stood up and made his famous statement in Persian language: “Kardid, nakardid

After their argumentation, Abubakr descended from the pulpit, went to his house and did not go out for three days until such time that Khalid
ibn Walid, Salim Mawla Abu Hudhayfah and Mu‘adh ibn Jabal along with many others went to Abubakr’s house and gave him will power. ‘Umar went along with this group to the mosque entrance and said:“O Shi‘ah and supporters of ‘Ali! Be aware that if you would utter these words again
I will behead you"

(Abi Mansur Ahmad ibn ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib Tabarsi, Al-Ihtijaj vol. 1, pp. 186-200)

In addressing ‘Ali (‘a), Khalid ibn Sa‘id said: “Come forward so that I could pay my allegiance to you as you are the most deserving person in the position of Muhammad (S).
(Ahmad ibn Abi Ya‘qub Ibn Wadhih, Tarikh al-Ya‘qubi, 1st edition vol. 2, p. 11)

Abd Allah ibn Mas‘ud used to say, “Based on the injunction of the Qur’an, there are four caliphs, viz. Adam (Adam), Dawud (David), Harun (Aaron), and ‘Ali.”

(Manaqib Al Abi Talib,vol. 3, pp. 77-78)

وقيل إنها ربيبته وهو الأصح

“It has been said that he brought them up, and this is the correct (view)”

“According to the books Anwar and Bida Ruqiyyah and Zainab were daughters of Hala, the sister of Khadija”

Shaykh Baqar Majlisi records in Mirat al-Uqool, Volume 5 page 179:

Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith: 5.739

Narrated Anas:

When the ailment of the Prophet (S) got aggravated, he became unconscious whereupon Fatimah said, "Oh, how distressed my father is!”

He said, "Your father will have no more distress after today.”When he expired, she said, "
O Father! Who has responded to the call of the Lord Who has invited him! O Father, whose dwelling place is the Garden of Paradise (i.e. al-Firdaus)! O Father! We convey this news (of your death) to Gabriel.”When he was buried, Fatimah said, "O Anas! Do you feel pleased to throw
earth over Allah’s Apostle?

It is reported that Imam al- Hasan Ibn ‘Ali (as) said:

"I am from the Ahlul-Bayt that Gabriel used to descend on us and ascend (back to heavens) from among us."

al-Mustadrak, by al-Hakim,,”v3, p172
Now, when Imam Hasan uses the word "us",

Mushaf Means Book.
Quran Is A Book. Not Every Book is Quran.
Same Is With Mushaf. It Was A Book Written By Bibi Fatima(SA) Which Contained What Will Happen.
There Is Not Even A Single Hadith In Al-Kafi Which States "Quran Of Fatima".
Its Only Mushaf Of Fatima.
Let Me Clear Your Confusion about it.
Abu Abdillah (as) said: "...
We have with us the Book of Fatimah, but I do not claim that anything of the Qur’an is in it.”(Usul al-Kafi, Tradition #637)

It Clearly Shows That Book of Fatima(SA) Dont Have Even A Single Verse of Quran
Abu Abdillah (as) also said about the book of Fatimah: "There is nothing of what is permitted and what is forbidden (al-Halal and al- Haram) in this; but in it is the knowledge of what will happen.”(Usul Kafi, Tradition #636)

On the Other Hand, these Few Narrations arent Hujjah.
