Caliph/Khalifah is the title for the Islamic leader of the Ummah, with temporal and spiritual authority over the community of Islam - the word literally means "one who replaces someone else who left or died". The title has been defunct since the abolition of the Ottoman Sultanate in 1924.

Caliphate/Khilafah historically describes the succession of rulers following the Prophet Muhammad, the passing of the title from generation to the next, excluding the prophetic aspect of Muhammad's role.

A number of modern renewal movements in Islam, prominently (but not exclusively) Hizb-ut-Tahreer, seek to re-establish the institution, a single office whose occupant, as successor to Muhammad, would possess clear political, military, and legal standing as the global leader of the Muslims.
