Usman Ghani (ra)

  • Hazrat Usman Ghani – the third Khalifa of Islam

    Before his death, Hazrat Umar (, may Allah be pleased with him.) appointed a panel of six men to select a Khalifah from amongst themselves and then sought his approval through Bai’at (Pledge of loyalty) by the Muslim public. He also instructed them to make the nomination within three days. The panel included Hazrat Usman, Ali, Sa’d bin Abi Waqqas, Talha, Zubair and Abdur Rahman bin ‘Auf (Ridwanullahi Alaihim) as the members.

  • Hazrat Usman’s services to Islam before Caliphate

    He was a very prominent Muslim to serve Islam by all means. He participated in almost all the battles against the non-believers in which Rasulallah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, had also taken part, except the Battle of Badr.
    At the time of the Treaty of Hudaibiya, he was sent to Makkah to negotiate with the non-believers. Shortly after, the Muslims were wrongly informed that he was murdered by the Kuffar of Makkah. It is for this reason that Rasulallah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, sought a pledge by the Muslims to fight with the non-believers in revenge of his murder. That pledge is known as Bai’at al-Ridwan (the Pledge of Ridwan). For Hazrat Usman’s pledge, Rasulallah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, put his left hand (representing Hazrat Usman’s hand) on his right hand.
