The Answer to this false claim:

1. None of the hadiths mention whom those 12 Caliphates are.
2. The hadiths are speaking about “Caliphates” = Rulers.

The evidence that the “Caliphate” here means “Ruler” and not just a “successor”, si the wording of some of the narrations mentioned in the list above, and in other sunni books including sahih al Bukhari:

(The Prophet said: “There will be after me twelve Amir (Prince/Ruler), all of them from Quraysh.” Sunan at Tirmithi)

And none of the Imams that Shia claim were rulers, except for Ali and al Hasan radiyallahu anhuma.
