What do Islamic people think of the dissolution of the Caliphate?

  1. The prophet said a time will come when the nations will gather, and they'll split up the Muslims like how we eat from a common plate, his companions became worried and asked will we be few in number, the prophet said no, you will be large in number buy like the foam on top of the ocean (low in quality)

  2. Well we obviously lost a lot of power in the world and are an easy target because of it. Despite our numbers. If the 1.8 billion muslims would live in 1 country others would not opress muslims so easily.

  3. very mixed feelings, like on one hand it did significantly impact the muslim world, and continues to to this day, but on the other hand, the writing was kind of on the wall for the Ottoman Khilafa by 1922. The sultan had largely been a figurehead since the nationalist Young Turk revolution in around 1909 (if i remember correctly), and enver pasha, along with other shot callers dragged the country into WW1, which led to it losing 80% of its previously held territory. After the war ended in 1918, the Allies imposed a humiliating treaty on the Ottomans, which gave them around 1/4th of the current territory of Turkey. Ironically, it was the secular/nationalist Mustafa Kemal who rejected this treaty, fought against the Brits, French, Italians, Greeks, etc, and defeated them and signed a peace treaty with them on his own terms. Therefore, you can kind of see how devoid of legitimacy the Khilafa was by 1922, and I tend to feel like if Mustafa Kemal hadn't removed it, someone else would've done the same a couple of years down the line.
