6. The Prophet prohibiting ‘Uthman radiya Llahu ‘anhu from taking off the garment that symbolizes his Caliphate towards the end of his life. As well as establishing the legitimacy of his reign.

 

وَبِهِ قَالَ ابْنُ مَاجَه: حَدَّثنا عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مُعَاوِيَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا فَرَجُ بْنُ فَضَالَةَ، عَنْ رَبِيْعَةَ بْنِ يَزِيْدَ الدِّمَشْقِيِّ، عَنْ النُّعْمَانِ بْنِ بَشِيْرٍ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ: قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ  : يَا عُثْمانُ إِنْ وَلَّاكَ اللهُ تَعَالى هَذَا الأَمْرَ يَوْمًا، فَأَرَادَكَ المُشْرِكُوْنَ المُنَافِقُوْنَ أَنْ تَخْلَعَ قَمِيْصَكَ الَّذِي قَمَّصَكَ اللهُ تَعَالَى، فَلَا تَخْلَعْهُ، يَقُوْلُ ذَلِكَ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ، قَالَ النُّعْمَانُ: فَقُلْتُ لِعَائِشَةَ: ما مَنَعَكِ أَنْ تُعْلِمِي النَّاسَ بِهَذَا، قَالَتْ: أُنْسِيْتُهُ وَالله

  1. Ibn Majah states—’Ali ibn Muhammad[1] narrated to us—Abu Muawiyah narrated to us—Faraj ibn Fudalah narrated to us—from Rabi’ah ibn Yazid al Dimashqi—from Nu’man ibn Bashir—from Aisha:

The Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “O ‘Uthman, if one day Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala places you in charge of this matter and a band of polytheist hypocrites want you to take off the garment that Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala has garbed you with, do not remove it.”

The Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said this three times.

Nu’man said, “I said to Aisha radiya Llahu ‘anha, ‘Why did you not inform the masses of this narration.’

She said, “By Allah I was made to forget.”[2]

[1] He is ‘Ali ibn Muhammad ibn Ishaq al Tanafisi, reliable, devout worshipper. Taqrib al Tahdhib, pg. 472.

[2] The isnad is Da’if. Ibn Majah narrates it in his Sunan (112) from ‘Ali ibn Muhammad al Tanafisi, in this chain is Faraj ibn Fudalah regarding whom there is a difference of opinion, but the majority of scholars, such as Yahya ibn Ma’in, ‘Ali ibn al Madini, al Bukhari, Muslim, al Nasa’i, and others are of the opinion that he is weak. Tahdhib al Tahdhib, 3/383. However, the narration itself is sahih via other chains, as will become evident under narration 43.
