Internal issues of Hazrat Usman's(R.A.) Caliphate |Third Caliph of Islam

1:Internal issues:

 The first half of Hazrat Usman's (R.A.) Caliphate was very peaceful.During this time,the Muslims gained many Victories and the Caliphate extended to a vast area of the then known  world.

But the later part of Hazrat Usman's (R.A.) Caliphate was marred by a terrible civil war which ultimately led to the murder of the caliph.

Hazrat Usman (R.A.)was very gentle and soft hearted person.

The people who wanted to create a chaos among the Muslims took advantage of His(R.A.)soft nature.. Hazrat Usman's (R.A.)stern hand had kept away the undemocratic and non-islamic customs, and the practices that prevailed in the courts of Persian and Byzantine empires.

But Hazrat Usman (R.A.) sometimes overlooked the faults of the governors and other officers in various provinces, though He(R.A.) totally and completely followed the ways of the Holy Prophet (SAW) and the first two Caliphs.

His compassionate nature made the provincial governors bold,as a result of which unrest in the provincial capitals grew and ultimately it engulfed the whole Islamic state.

The enemies of Islam were in search of a suitable occasion to work against Islam and the Muslims.They finally found the desired opportunity for this and sent out their men to disturb the peace and to spread false news.

2: Conspiracy of Abdullah bin Saba:

Abdullah bin Saba was a clever Yemenite Jew who had falsely accepted Islam;he pretended to accept Islam only for self-interest and to destroy peace of the Islamic state.He took the leading part in the agitation against Hazrat Usman(R.A.).
He had a number of followers who had accepted Islam only to create disharmony among the Muslims.

He invented quite a few beliefs and started to preach them.He based his beliefs upon the love of the Holy Prophet (SAW)and His (SAW) family.
The Main belief invented by Abdullah bin Saba was that every Prophet left a wasi (administrator) behind him,and the wasi was his relative .For example, Hazrat Musa (A.S.)made Hazrat Harun(R.A.)His wasi.Conswquently , the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW)must have a wasi,and His(SAW)wasi was Hazrat Ali (R.A.)Being the wasi Hazrat Ali (R.A.)was the only rightful man to be Khalifah.
He went to the extent of declaration that the Khilafat of Hazrat Abu Bakar (R.A.), Hazrat Umar (R.A.)and Hazrat Usman (R.A.)was unlawful.The only way to redress matters was to remove the then Caliph, Hazrat Usman (R.A.)
He started to give wrong commentaries of various verses of the Holy Quran and twisted their  meaning in favour of his beliefs.
