The Rightly Guided Caliphs or The Righteous Caliphs (Template:Lang Template:Transl) is a term used in Sunni Islam to refer to the first four caliphs after the Islamic prophet Muhammad who established the Rashidun Caliphate: Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman ibn Affan and Ali. The concept of "Rightly Guided Caliphs" originated with the later Abbasid Caliphate, which was based in Baghdad. It is a reference to the Sunni tradition, "Hold firmly to my example (sunnah) and that of the Rightly Guided Caliphs" (Ibn Majah, Abu Dawood).
