28. What is prepared for ‘Uthman in the Hereafter

 

وَبِهِ قَالَ القَطِيْعِيُّ: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ البُوْرَانِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ عِيْسَى، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ عَفَّانَ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ، عَنْ اللَّيْثِ بْنِ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ يَزِيْدَ بْنِ أَبِي حَبِيْبٍ، عَنْ أَبِي الخَيْرِ، عَنْ عُقْبَةَ بْنِ عَامِرٍ الجُهَنِيِّ، قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهلَمَّا عُرِجَ بِي إِلَى السَّمَاءِ دَخَلْتُ جَنَّةَ عَدْنٍ، فَوُضِعَ فِي كَفِّي تُفَاحَةٌ، قَالَ: فَانْفَلَقَتْ عَنْ حَوْرَاءَ مَرْضِيَّةٍ، كَأَنَّ أَشْفَارَعَيْنَيْهَا مَقَادِيمُ أَجْنِحَةِ النُّسُورِ، فَقُلْتُ: لِمَنْ أَنْتِ؟ فَقَالَتْ: أَنَا لِلْخَلِيفَةِ المَقْتُولِ مِنْ بَعْدِكَ، عُثْمَانَ بْنِ عَفَّان

  1. Al Qati’i states—Abu Bakr al Burani narrated to us—’Ali ibn ‘Isa narrated to us—Abdul Rahman ibn Affan narrated to us—’Abdul Rahman ibn Ibrahim narrated to us—from al Layth ibn Sa’d—from Yazid ibn Abi Habib—from Abu al Khayr—from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Amir al Juhani:

The Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “When I was lifted to the heavens I entered the Paradise of Eden and an apple was placed on my shoulder. (He said,) The apple split by the beauty of the maiden in Jannat; whose eyelids were like feathers of an eagle. I asked, ‘Who do you belong to?’ She said, ‘I belong to the murdered Khalifah that will come after you. I belong to ‘Uthman Ibn ‘Affan.’”[1]

[1] The narration is Mawdu (fabricated). Al Qati’i narrates in Zawa’id Fada’il al Sahabah (864) from Muhammad ibn Ahmed al Burani. Ibn al Jawzi narrates in al Mawduat (1/246-247) and he went at length in gathering all the alternate chains of transmissions, after which he said, “This narration is not authentically reported from the Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.” I say: ‘Abdul Rahman ibn ‘Affan is a liar. Mizan al itidal 4/304.
