(2) Abu Bakr
(3) Iman Hussain
(4) Constantine

Correct Answer : (2) Abu Bakr was the first Caliph.

Explanation :

Abu Bakr was the founder and first caliph of the Rashidun Caliphate ruling from June 632 until his death. He was the most prominent companion, closest advisor and a father-in-law of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.

He ruled over the Rashidun Caliphate from 632–634 CE when he became the first Caliph following Muhammad’s death.

As Caliph, Abu Bakr succeeded to the political and administrative functions previously exercised by Muhammad, since the religious function and authority of prophethood ended with Muhammad’s death according to Islam. He was called Al-Siddiq (The Truthful).
