Brief Biography of Hazrat Usman Bin Affan




On the 18th of Zul Hajja-tul-Haram, 35th year of the Hijrah, the companion of our Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad صلی اللہ تعالٰی علیہ والہ وسلم, Sayyiduna Usman Al-Ghani رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ was ruthlessly murdered (martyred). He رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ was the third Khalifah amongst those known as the Khulafah-ur-Rashidin. His patronymic (Kunyat) is Abu Amr. He رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ is also known as Zun-Nurain; because Allah’s Nur, the Embodiment of Nur, the Noble Prophet صلی اللہ تعالٰی علیہ والہ وسلم gave two of his daughters’ hands in marriage one after the other (after the former’s demise), to the Honorable Usman Al-Ghani رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ.


Nur ki sarkar se paya daushalah nur ka
Ho Mubarak tum ko Zun-Nurain jaura nur ka
From the one so resplendent, you received two shawls of Nur
Congratulations to you O Zun-Nurain! A pair of Nur
(Hadaiq-e-Bakhshish)
He رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ embraced Islam at the advent [of Islam]. He رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ is also known as ‘Sahib-ul-Hijratain’ (the one who migrated twice) because he immigrated first to Habshah (Ethiopia) and then to Madina-tul-Munawwarah.
