Glad tidings of martyrdom
There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Anas Bin Malik (May Allah be well pleased with him), he said: The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), Hadhrat Abu Bakr, Hadhrat Umar and Hadhrat Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with them) graced the mountain of Uhud with their presence.  Out of happiness, the mountain started swaying.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) tapped it with His foot and said: O Uhud! Steady! The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), 1 Faithful (Siddiq) and 2 martyrs (Shaheed) are on you.  (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 3686)
Frequently, Hadhrat ‘Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him) would supplicate for dying in Madina and for being martyred, as given in this Hadith of Sahih Bukhari:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Zaid bin Aslam who narrates on the authority of his father who heard Hadhrat ‘Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him) say:  O Allah!  …

Hadhrat ‘Umar Farooq (RA) Superiority & Excellence

Image
His superiority and excellence
There is a Hadith in Jame’ Tirmidhi and Sunan Ibn Majah:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Hudhaifa (May Allah be well pleased with him), he said that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam): Follow the 2 (caliphs) after me i.e. Abu Bakr and Umar (May Allah be well pleased with them).  (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Hadith No. 4023; Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith No. 102)
The reason for this is that Allah Most High has set forth springs of truth from his tongue and heart.  That he would swerve from the path of truth cannot even be imagined, because the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said about him:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Abdullah Bin ‘Umar (May Allah be well pleased with them) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  Verily, Allah Most High has prompted truth on the tongue and in the heart of ‘Umar.  (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Hadith No. 4046)
This was the reason why even Iblees, the accursed, coul…

The justice of Hadhrat ‘Umar Farooq

Image
The justice of Hadhrat ‘Umar Farooq
Allah Most High has granted various distinctions to the 2nd Caliph of Islam, Hadhrat ‘Umar Farooq (May Allah be well pleased with him).  His life is an illustration of truth and is a touchstone of justice.  Even non-Muslims acknowledge his justice and consider his caliphate a shining example.  His caliphate is like a living picture of this verse of the Holy Quran.  Allah Most High says:
O believers! Holding fast to the cause of Allah, bear witness based on justice. And let not (even) the extreme hostility against a people provoke you into abstaining from justice (in their case). Always do justice, (for) it is closer to piousness. And fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is Well Aware of your works.  Surah Maida (8)
Hadhrat ‘Umar Farooq (May Allah be well pleased with him) didn’t discriminate between his close ones and others when implementing the laws of Islam.  He granted security and protection to non-Muslims.  It is given in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaiba:

Hadhrat Umar’s RA Embracing Islam | Presenting himself to the Holy Prophet (Pbuh)

Image
Embracing Islam
Hadhrat Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him) embraced Islam 3 days after Hadhrat Ameer Hamzah embraced Islam in 6th year of Prophethood (6 Nabawi). Then his age was 27 years.  (Tarikh Ul Khulafa, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 43; Al Kamil Fi Asmair Rijaal)
There is a Hadith in Jame’ Tirmidhi:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Abdullah Bin ‘Umar that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) prayed: O Allah! You grant dominance to Islam through either Abu Jahl or Umar Bin Khattab, whomever You love more.  (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Hadith No. 4045)
In Sunan Ibn Majah, it is mentioned that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) prayed specially for Hadhrat ‘Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him):
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Aisha Siddiqua (May Allah be well pleased with her), she said that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) prayed: O Allah! You grant dominance to Islam by guiding ‘Umar to Islam.  (Sunan Ibn Majah, H…

A Brief Look At The Life Of The One Who Spread Islam To The Corners Of The World.

Image
Introduction:
It is an agreed-upon tenet of faith of the Ahle Sunnah that after the Prophets (May peace be upon them), the Companions (May Allah be well pleased with them) enjoy the highest status.  These are those personalities who had the honor of seeing the blessed face of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) with their physical eyes in a state of faith, as Muslims, and passed away as such.  The 4 Righteous Caliphs are superior to all other Companions.  Their excellence and accomplishments are also in the order of their caliphate.
Allah Most High has promised paradise to all the Companions as given in the Holy Quran:
Those of you who spent (their wealth in the way of Allah before Meccan Victory) and fought (in their defence), they (and you) cannot be equal. They are far higher in rank than those who spent their wealth afterwards and fought. But Allah has promised the most pleasing end (i.e., Paradise) to all in the Hereafter.  Surah Hadeed (57:10)
The 2nd Caliph of Islam, the…

Sayings of Hadhrat ‘Uthman
The last sermon that Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) gave has been recorded by ‘Allama Momin Bin Hasan Shablakhi (May Allah shower His mercy on him) in Noor Ul Absaar:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Yazid bin ‘Uthman, he said that in his last sermon, Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) said:  O people!  Verily Allah Most High has given you with world so that you seek the hereafter with it.  It has not been given to you for indulging in it.  Remember!  This world will end and the hereafter is to remain.  The thing which is perishable should not make you ungrateful and heedless of that thing which will remain.  Prefer the lasting hereafter to the temporal world.  This world is a place of journey and in reality everyone has to return to Allah.  Be conscious of Allah, as this is a means of saving oneself from His wrath and a means of gaining His proximity…...  (Noor Ul Absaar Fi Manaqibi Aali Baitin Na…

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas (May Allah be well pleased with them), he said:  I was present before the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) when suddenly Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) came there.  When he came close, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  O ‘Uthman!  You will be martyred in such a state that you will be reciting Surah Baqarah and your blood will fall on the verse:  So Allah is sufficient to guard you against their evil and He is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.  (2:137).
In Qiyamah, you will be resurrected with such honor that you will be the leader of every person who has faced difficulties.  All the people will see your status and envy you.  You will intercede for…

Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) bought Jannah from the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)
Imam Hakim Neshapuri (May Allah shower His mercy on him) has narrated a Hadith in Mustadrak on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be well pleased with him):

Glad tidings of martyrdom to Hadhrat ‘Uthman
The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is aware of the events and conditions of every follower of His.  This is the reason why He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) gave glad tidings of martyrdom to Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him).  There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari:
Translation: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Anas Bin Malik (May Allah be well pleased with him), he said that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) graced the mountain of Uhud along with Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddiq, Hadhrat Umar Farooq and Hadhrat Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with them).  The mountain of Uhud started swaying out of happiness. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) tapped it with His foot and said: Steady o mountain! The Prophet is on you and 1 faithful (Siddiq) and 2 martyrs (Shaheed).  (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No: 3686)

Result of hating Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him)
Our faith demands that we should have deep love for those lucky people who had the honor of being close to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  Hating them and harboring enmity against them leads to displeasure of Allah Most High and His Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  There is a Hadith in Jame’ Tirmidhi:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Jabir (May Allah be well pleased with him), he said:  A bier was brought before the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) so that He may lead the Salaat Ul Janazah.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) refused to lead this person’s Salaat Ul Janazah.  The Companions said:  O Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)!  We have never seen you refuse any person’s Salaat Ul Janazah like this before.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  This person used to harbor enmity against, ‘Uthman, so Allah Most…

The Prophet’s confidence in Hadhrat ‘Uthman
Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) was so highly regarded by the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) that He made him the envoy of Islam and sent him to Makkah.  With this, he gave a message to the world that He has complete confidence in the trustworthiness of Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) and that he is above all suspicion.
Why was Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) made an envoy in Hudaibiyah
At Hudaibiyah, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had sent Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) as an ambassador to Makkah.  One reason was that he was respected by the people of Makkah as well.  The second reason was the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had divined that a time will come when people will point fingers at Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him).  People will cast aspersions on his unblemished character.  Many objections wi…

Defending Hadhrat ‘Uthman – A Sunnah of the Companions
Allah Most High has declared the faith of the Companions as the touchstone of guidance.  When the Companions are taunted, our faith demands that we should defend them and prove our love and loyalty to them.  There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Uthman bin Mauhab (May Allah be well pleased with him), he says:  An Egyptian came with the intention of Haj.  He saw some people sitting and asked:  Which clan is this?  People told him that these are the elite of the Quraish.  He asked:  Who is their leader?  He was told:  Hadhrat ‘Abdullah Bin ‘Umar (May Allah be well pleased with them).  He said:  O Ibn Umar (May Allah be well pleased with them), I will ask you about few things.  You tell me about them.  Do you know that Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) was not present in the Battle of Uhud?  Hadhrat ‘Abdullah Bin ‘Umar (May Allah be well pleased with them) said: …

There is a Hadith in Kanz Ul Ummal on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) himself:
Translation: Once for many days, no food grain came to Madina.  People started starving.  I went towards Baq‘ee Gharqad and saw that there were 15 camels laden with food grain.  I bought them.  I held back 3 camels and took 12 camels to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) prayed for my prosperity.  (Kanz Ul Ummal, Hadith No. 36335)

Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) is the most modest of all.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) would also acknowledge this.  There is a Hadith in Sahih Muslim:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Ata Bin Yasaar, Hadhrat Sulaiman Bin Yasaar and Hadhrat Abu Salma Bin Abdur Rahman (May Allah be well pleased with them) that Hadhrat Aisha Siddiqua (May Allah be well pleased with her) said:  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was resting in his house and his lower garment had moved a bit exposing His thigh or His ankle.  Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (May Allah be well pleased with him) asked for permission to come in.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) permitted him in His presence.  Then Hadhrat ‘Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him) came and requested permission.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) permitted him as well.  Then Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) …

His mention in the Highest Heavens
He is so distinguished that his name is being mentioned in the highest heavens as well.  Even the dwellers of the spiritual worlds address him as Dhun Nurain.  It is given in Kanz Ul Ummal:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Nazzaal Bin Sabura (May Allah be well pleased with him), he said:  We asked Hadhrat ‘Ali (May Allah be well pleased with him) about the excellence of Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him).  He said:  He is the one who is remembered as “Dhun Noorain” in the highest heavens.  (Kanz Ul Ummal, Hadith No. 36181; Nuzhatul Majalis)

Hadhrat Uthman RA Marriage | Reason behind the appellation of Dhun Noorain

Image
Hadhrat Uthman RA Marriage
Hadhrat Uthman is also distinguished in that one after the other, he was married to 2 daughters of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) Himself.  For this reason, he is called Dhun Noorain i.e. the one with 2 radiances.  After the demise of Hadhrat Syeda Ruqayya (May Allah be well pleased with her), the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) wedded Hadhrat Umme Kulthoom (May Allah be well pleased with her) to Hadhrat ‘Uthman.  On this occasion, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:
Translation: By Allah!  Even if I had 100 daughters and all of them died one after the other, even then I would have wed them to you one after the other.  Just now Jibreel (May peace be upon him) came to me and said:  Allah Most High has ordered that I should wed Umme Kulthoom (May Allah be well pleased with her) to you.  (Jame’ Ul Ahadith Wal Maraseel, Hadith No. 16107; Jame’ Ul Kabeer, Harf Ul Laam; Kanz Ul Ummal, Hadith No. 36206; Nuzhatul Majalis, Ba…

Among the first people to embrace Islam
He is among the earliest people to embrace Islam and among the earliest to emigrate (perform Hijrah).  He is among those great people whom the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) gave the glad tidings of Jannah in this worldly life.  As given in Usdul Ghaba:
Translation: He embraced Islam in the early days of Islam.  Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (May Allah be well pleased with him) invited him to Islam and he embraced Islam.  He used to say:  Indeed I was the fourth person to embrace Islam.  (Usdul Ghaba Li Ibn Ul Atheer, ‘Uthman Bin ‘Affaan)
