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



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, Bab Manaqibi ‘Uthman Bin ‘Affaan Raziallahu Anhu)

Reason behind the appellation of Dhun Noorain

Imam Jalaluddin Suyuti (May Allah shower His mercy on him) has narrated a Tradition about the title of Dhun Noorain in “Tarikh Ul Khulafa” that 2 daughters of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) are in his marriage, for this reason he is called Dhun Noorain and from the time of Prophet Adam (May peace be upon him) until the Day of Judgment, nobody has ever got this privilege that 2 daughters of the same Prophet were in the marriage of 1 person.
