Allegations Against Hazrat Usman Ghani (R.A.)

Allegations against Hazrat Usman Ghani (R.A.):

  1. Hazrat Usman Ghani (R.A.) belonged to the Qureshi family of Banu Umayyah.Before Islam,there was rivalry between Banu Umayyah and Banu Hashim (another Qurayshi family to which the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW)and Hazrat Ali (R.A.) belonged).In Madinah,the Sabaties incited Banu Hashim against banu Umayyah, actually against Hazrat Usman by saying that He(R.A.)was removing Hashmites from the big offices in order to support Umayyads and that that he was induly considerate to his family.

  2. The alleged that Hazrat Usman Ghani (R.A.)was extravagant and gave away money to His(R.A.)relatives,this squandered the Bait-ul-Mal.The allegation was absolutely false.Hazrat Usman (R.A.)was one of the wealthiest merchants in Arabia due to which people gave Him the title of Ghani (The rich man)His generosity continued in the same way during his Caliphate.He spent His own money to help the poor,and also his relatives never took any thing wrongfully from the Bait-ul-Mal.Not only this,He(R.A.)did not accept any allowance from the Bait-ul-Mal for His services as Caliph.

One of the allegations, levelled by Sabaties against Hazrat Usman (R.A.)was that He (R. A.)had burnt some copies of the Holy Quran.The fact was that Hazrat Usman (R.A.)sent copies of the Holy Quran, written by Hazrat Zaid bin Thabit (R.A.)by the end rder of Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddique (R.A.) during His Caliphate,to various places of the state and asked the governors and other officers to burn all those copies of the Holy Quran which were incomplete and we're not in accordance with the Holy Quran compiled by Hazrat Zaid bin Thabit (R.A.).This was done inorder to avoid confusion between the Muslims because there were some copies of the Holy Quran at that time in which the order of the Surahs(chapters)was not like that was proposed by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in accordance 
to Hazrat Jibrail's(R.A.) instructions as commanded by ALLAH.
Moreover,some  of the copies existing at that time at various places other than Madinah were lacking in some chapters,and were incomplete.For this reason, Hazrat Usman (R.A.)got copies made of the standard book which was compiled during the time of Hazrat Abu Bakar (R.A.)and sent them to various places.Differences had also arisen due to differences in handwritings so he also standardised the way of writing the Holy Quran.

This has been considered as one of the greatest services of Hazrat Usman (R A ) rendered to Islam for which He (R.A.)has been given the title of Jami-ul-Quran(the Compiler of the Quran) although the Holy Quran was compiled in a book form by Hazrat Abu Bakar (R.A.)on the insistence of Hazrat Umar(R.A.).
4.There were allegations against Hazrat Abu Zarr Ghafari (R.A.)He was a well -known and pious companion of the Holy Prophet (SAW),Who always kept a loof from the world and its riches .He was not in favour of accumulation of money and saving it.Regarding the Bait-ul-Mal,he held the view that all the money should be spend for the welfare of Muslims as soon as it came through taxes,etc.In Syria,He started to publisice his opinion and a number of people followed him .Seeing this , Hazrat Amir Mu'awiya (R.A.) wrote to Hazrat Usman (R.A.)Who (R.A.)recalled Hazrat Abu Zarr (R.A.) to Madinah and then he retired to a village named Rabdhah near Madinah.
Abdullah bin Saba tried to gain favor of Hazrat Abu Zarr (.R.A.)when he was in Syria but he rebuked Ibn Saba and told him that the beliefs he was preaching were foreign to Islam and that his aim was to create chaos among the Muslims.
When Hazrat Abu Zarr (R.A.)had retired,they start accusing Hazrat Usman (R.A.) of forcing to live in a village.Not only this,but they also accused him of ill treatment of other recognized companions like Hazrat Ammar bin Yasir(R.A.)and Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas'ud(R.A.)But all of these accusations were false .
