Hadith Explanation

Uthman's Innocence

"The Messenger of Allah mentioned a Fitnah (tribulation) that had drawn near. Then a man passed by with his head covered. The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: 'On that day, this man will be following right guidance.' I leapt up and took hold of Uthman's arms, then I turned to face the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and asked: 'This man?' He confirmed: 'This man.'" [Ibn Majah - graded Sahih; Imam Ahmad]

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) foretold many things about the future at Allah's bidding, and they came to pass exactly as he had foretold. This is a proof of the veracity of his prophethood. This hadith, among others, proves that the accusations labeled against Uthman (radi Allahu anhu) by the mischief-mongers were totally unfounded and baseless. Their leader was Abdullah bin Sabah who had converted from Judaism. The fitnah sowed by him caused the first civil war in Islam. Uthman's conduct was absolutely above reproach. The systematic campaign of false accusations against Uthman (radi Allahu anhu) culminated in his wrongful assassination. Even today we see the forces of evil trying to malign righteous Muslims in order to do away with them, if not physically, then at least as far as their credibility is concerned.
