The Prophet’s confidence in Hadhrat ‘Uthman | Why was Hadhrat Uthman made an envoy in Hudaibiyah

The Prophet’s confidence in Hadhrat ‘Uthman

Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) was so highly regarded by the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) that He made him the envoy of Islam and sent him to Makkah.  With this, he gave a message to the world that He has complete confidence in the trustworthiness of Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) and that he is above all suspicion.

Why was Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) made an envoy in Hudaibiyah

Hudaibiyah
At Hudaibiyah, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had sent Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) as an ambassador to Makkah.  One reason was that he was respected by the people of Makkah as well.  The second reason was the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had divined that a time will come when people will point fingers at Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him).  People will cast aspersions on his unblemished character.  Many objections will be raised about him.

Thus, that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) made Hadhrat ‘Uthman (May Allah be well pleased with him) His envoy is proof enough of his trustworthiness and declaring His own hand to be the hand of Hadhrat ‘Uthman testifies to the proximity which Hadhrat ‘Uthman enjoyed with the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)
