This question already has an answer here:

Enlightened badge is awarded for first to answer and accepted with score of 10 or more.

I am confused on seeing some users' answers with this qualification didn't get awarded this badge.

For ex, See this and this answers, they deserves the Enlightened badge, but they didn't received yet. There may be any valid reason behind that like Bug in awarding Enlightened Badge. What's that?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

No i can not see any deleted answer there – Lucifer Apr 17 '13 at 5:46
also my answer still didn't get Enlightened badge :… why? – Sumit Bijvani Apr 17 '13 at 6:23
@Sumit: Renku answered 22 seconds before you did - you didn't answer first. – Mac Apr 17 '13 at 6:30
@Mac I don't see the exact time. it shows Mar 4 at 7:37 on both answers – Sumit Bijvani Apr 17 '13 at 6:34
@SumitBijvani - Are you kidding with us? At lease read the comment reply given to you. – hims056 Apr 17 '13 at 6:38
@hims056 no bro, I am not – Sumit Bijvani Apr 17 '13 at 6:39
@SumitBijvani - Then why are you just asking everyone without reading any reply? – hims056 Apr 17 '13 at 6:41
@hims056 i have read all the comments then I have replied. because I don't see the second difference. my screen display only Mar 4 at 7:37 on both answer. that's why I am asking how can I see the seconds difference – Sumit Bijvani Apr 17 '13 at 6:43
But I wanted a resistance badge! – Emrakul Apr 17 '13 at 6:44
@SumitBijvani - Still you are ignoring this and this comments. You actually need to hover on that timestamps to get exact time of the post. – hims056 Apr 17 '13 at 6:45
@hims056 thanks bro. I got my fault:D – Sumit Bijvani Apr 17 '13 at 6:48

The description of the badge is (emphasis mine):

Enlightened badge is awarded for first to answer and accepted with score of 10 or more.

Neither of your answers was the first to appear. In the first question you were 26 days late, and in the second one you were a minute late.

That was really an eagle eye answer :) – Lucifer Apr 17 '13 at 5:49
@Azik Because they are both the accepted answer. – Yannis Apr 17 '13 at 5:50
This answer deserves Enlightened badge, come on guys – Lucifer Apr 17 '13 at 6:00
my answer still didn't get Enlightened badge :… why? – Sumit Bijvani Apr 17 '13 at 6:20
@SumitBijvani Because it's not the first answer, you were 22 seconds too late. Hover over the answers' timestamps to see the exact time they were posted. – Yannis Apr 17 '13 at 6:28
@SumitBijvani Many users who play FGITW get denied the badge by mere seconds. I think I have one answer where I missed it by like 2 seconds. – Mysticial Apr 17 '13 at 6:30
@Yannis how can you see. I am 22 seconds late. please tell me. because there are 2 answers at the same time – Sumit Bijvani Apr 17 '13 at 6:31
@SumitBijvani - Read Yannis' comment carefully. – hims056 Apr 17 '13 at 6:33

In both of your examples, the accepted answer was not the first answer.

Take a closer look at the time-stamps.
