33. ‘Uthman radiya Llahu ‘anhu submitting himself to the will of Allah; as seen by him in the dream, until he was killed

 

أنبأنا شَهْرَدَارُ بْنُ شِيْرَوَيْهِ الدَّيْلَمِيُّ، أَنْبَأَنَا أَبُو الحُسَيْنِ المُبَارَكُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الجَبَّارِ الصَيْرَفِيُّ، أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو طَاهِرٍ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ – يُعْرَفُ بِابْنِ العَلَّافِ، أَخْبَرَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ القَطِيْعِيُّ، أَخْبَرَنَا عَبْدُ اللهِ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ حَنْبَلٍ، حَدَّثَنِي عُثْمَانُ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا يُوْنُسُ بْنُ أَبِي يَعْفُوْرٍ العَبْدِيُّ، عَنْ أَبِيْهِ، عَنْ مُسْلِمٍ أَبِي سَعِيْدٍ مَوْلَى عُثْمَانَ بْنِ عَفَّانَ أَنَّ عُثْمَانَ بْنَ عَفَّانَ أَعْتَقَ عِشْرِينَ مَمْلُوكًا وَدَعَا بِسَرَاوِيلَ، فَشَدَّ عَلَيْهِ، وَلَمْ يَلْبَسْهُ فِي جَاهِلِيَّةٍ وَلَا إِسْلَامٍ، قَالَ: إِنِّي رَأَيْتُ رَسُولَ اللهِالبَارِحَةَ فِي النَّوْمِ، وَرَأَيْتُ أَبَا بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرَ، وَإِنَّهُمْ قَالُوا لِي: اصْبِرْ، فَإِنَّكَ تُفْطِرُ عِنْدَنَا القَابِلَةَ، ثُمَّ دَعَا بِمُصْحَفٍ فَنَشَرَهُ بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ، فَقُتِلَ وَهُوَ بَيْنَ يَدَيْه

  1. Shahradar ibn Shirawayh al Daylami narrated to us—Abu al Hussain al Mubarak ibn ‘Abdul Jabbar al Sayrafi narrated to us—Abu Tahir Muhammad ibn ‘Ali, who is known is Ibn Al ‘Allaf narrated to us—Ahmed ibn Jafar al Qati’i narrated to us—’Abdullah ibn Ahmed ibn Hanbal narrated to us—’Uthman ibn Abi Shaibah narrated to us—Yunus ibn Abi Ya’fur al ‘Abdi narrated to us—from his father—from Muslim Abi Sa’id[1], the mawla of ‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan:

‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan freed twenty slaves and asked for a pair of trousers and wore it. He did not wear it during the Jahiliyah or Islam. He said, “I saw the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam last night in my dream. I also saw Abu Bakr and ‘Umar, they said to me, ‘Be patient, you will break fast when we meet.’” He then called for a Mushaf (copy of the Qur’an), placed it in front of him and was killed in this condition.[2]

 

NEXT⇒ 34. The Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam calling the detractors from ‘Uthman hypocrites and commanding him to protect the Caliphate


[1] In the original it states, “From Muslim—from Abu Sa’id,” this is incorrect. The correct form is what is stated above, as stated in al Asma’ wa al Kunna of Abu Ahmed al Hakim.

[2] The isnad is Da’if. ‘Abdullah ibn Ahmed narrates in Zawa’id Min Fada’il al Sahabah (809) from ‘Uthman ibn Abi Shaibah with this chain. In the chain there is Muslim Abu Sa’id whose status is unknown. Abu Ahmed al Hakim in al Asma’ wa al Kunna (2206) mentioned a brief biography for him. The strongest narration mentioned about this is what is reported from Nafi in a Mursal narration. Refer to the footnote of narration 21.
