Heroes of the history

There are born many many people from Hazrat Adam to till now. But its the miracle of Allah Almighty everyone is different from others by thoughts by physical features, by beliefs, by learnings, by dealings, by knowledge. Allah created trillions of personalities.

But some personalities created history they are called heroes so here I am talking about one of the heroes of Islamic History Uthman ibn Affan ( Arabic عثمان بن عفان‎,  579/583 – 17 June 656), 

Uthman was son in law and close companion of Islamic Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him).is known as Zul Norain Means having two lights. Possessors of two lights The two daughters of Holy Prophet were in his Nikah one by one. Uthman married to Ruqayyah and after her death married Umm e Kalsoom. Both were the daughters of Holy Prophet Muhammad and his first wife Khadija.

Early life and birth. Uthman was born in Taif. his family was one of the wealthy families of Arab his mother was the first cousin of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him)He is listed as one of the 22 Makkans “at the dawn of Islam” who knew how to read and write.

He was very humble and noble even before accepting Islam. He was the good Companion of Hazrat Abu Baker Sadique (RA) Thus, when Hazrat Uthman met with the Holy Prophetsa, he started reciting the following verses of the Quran from Surah Al-Dhariya “And in heaven is your sustenance, and also that which you are promised.

“And by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is certainly the truth, even as it is true that you speak.”

Then the Holy Prophet addressed Hazrat Uthmanra and told him that he was the Prophet of Allah and sent for all of humanity.

Without any hesitation, Hazrat Uthmanra accepted Islam and performed Baiat at the hand of the Holy Prophetsa. He thus became one of the earliest followers to accept Islam.

His conversion to Islam angered his clan, the Banu Ummayyah, so he migrated to  Abyssinia with his wife Ruqqayah which is known as Ethiopia now.here he started his business and very soon he established it well. after four years he came back to Mecca and established his business here again. After that, he migrated to Madina with the Holy Prophet and his companions. He was among the richest merchants of mecca so he helped the Muslims by his wealth. The condition of the Muslims was miserable so he helped them much time by his money he spent his wealth much time on Muslims. for his generosity earned him the honorific title of Ghanni .

Services of Uthman .

When the Muslims migrated to Medina, they faced the worst scarcity of water. There was only one well in Medina which belonged to a Jew who sold the water to the poor inhabitants of Medina at a high price.  Hazrat Uthman purchased the well and open it for the people of Medina.

Thus, within 20 years of Muhammad’s death, the Quran was committed to written form. That text became the model from which copies were made and promulgated throughout the urban centers of the Muslim world, and other versions are believed to have been destroyed.

THIRD CALIPH OF ISLAM

Uthman was also the third Khalifa of Muslims so is known as Rashidun. During the Khilafat of Hazrat Uthman, Islam had expanded a great and spread all over the world into China.  

within 20 years of Muhammad’s death, the Quran was committed to written form. That text became the model from which copies were made and promulgated throughout the urban centers of the Muslim world, and other versions are believed to have been destroyed. He compiled the Quran and it was his the greatest service of Islam. The Muslims throughout the world are reading and will be read till to the day of judgment Quran with tajweed due to him.

The unhappy death of Hazrat Uthmanra used to be an unhappy day for the Muslim Umma. He used to be brutally murdered by means of the munafiq (hypocrites). Even for the duration of that duration, the place contributors of his family have been beneath risk due to the invasion of his house, right away prior to his martyrdom, he bore all these afflictions with terrific persistence and loyalty to the reason of Islam. He was, indeed, a genuine servant of the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa. May his soul relax in peace.

The distinctive account of the unhappy dying of Hazrat Uthmanra had many repercussions for the Muslim Umma.
