Result of hating Hadhrat Uthman ra & His Simplicity and Humility


Result of hating Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him)

Our faith demands that we should have deep love for those lucky people who had the honor of being close to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  Hating them and harboring enmity against them leads to displeasure of Allah Most High and His Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  There is a Hadith in Jame’ Tirmidhi:

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Jabir (May Allah be well pleased with him), he said:  A bier was brought before the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) so that He may lead the Salaat Ul Janazah.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) refused to lead this person’s Salaat Ul Janazah.  The Companions said:  O Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)!  We have never seen you refuse any person’s Salaat Ul Janazah like this before.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  This person used to harbor enmity against, ‘Uthman, so Allah Most High detests him.  (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Hadith No. 3709)

Hadhrat ‘Uthman’s simplicity and humility

In spite of being enthroned on the highest spiritual stations, Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) would lead his life with utmost simplicity. It is given in Nuzhatul Majalis:

Translation: For others, he would provide food fit for kings and he himself would use olives and vinegar.  (Nuzhatul Majalis)
