There is a rule among Sunni people that:

 

      Those who have participated in Hudaibiyah are saved forever.

      They will not lie on prophet, and they will not do great sins.

 

The same is sometimes told upon those who participated on the battle

of Badr. Let us accept these two rules as long as you are reading this

articles.

(Fascinating!: As if they are sinless people.)

 

Utman, the third Caliph after the death of the prophet,

 

1)- did not participate in the battel of Badr,

2)- fled away in the battle of Uhud,

3)- failed to attend the Ar Ridwan Pledge (Hudaibiya Plege) and did not

    witness it.

 

Begin (the algorithm)

 

1)- If you think that the address of this hadith is not correct,

    or it is twisted, or it has been intentionally mistranslated,

    Please bring your version of the hadith, and your translation

    along with your address of the ahadith. Thanks.

 

2)- Please read the following hadith. The same is also narrated in

    Volumn 5, Hadith number 395. Please read this hadith carefully, and

    tell us if you are satisfied with the answers of Ibn-Umar in this

    hadith.

 

         In any case (Yes/No), please evaluate the position of Uthman

         among the sahabah of the prophet. For example, how do you

         compare Uthman with those who actually participated in the

         battle of Badr, who did not fly away in Uhud, and who

         participated in Hudaibyiah. Please give me your explanations

         such that I understand your feelings toward him.

 

3)-  Please name all of the sahabah who did all the following three

     things at the same time:

        a)- They did participate in Badr,

        b)- They did not fly away in Uhud,

        c)- They participated in Hudaibiyah.

(I know how many participated in one of them individually. But there

are only a few who did all three together. Please name them, and bring

your references as well. Thanks.)

 

4)- Were the people of [3] alive in the time Umar was killed or not?

If yes, which one would you have chosen as your caliph?

 

5)- End of the algorithm.

     5. 48:

     -------

 

     Narrated 'Uthman:

 

  (the son of Muhib) An Egyptian who came and performed the Hajj to the

  Kaba saw some people sitting. He enquire, "Who are these people?"

  Somebody said, "They are the tribe of Quraish." He said, "Who is the

  old man sitting amongst them?" The people replied, "He is 'Abdullah

  bin 'Umar." He said, "O Ibn Umar! I want to ask you about something;

  please tell me about it. Do you know that 'Uthman fled away on the day

                            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  (of the battle) of Uhud?" Ibn 'Umar said, "Yes." The (Egyptian) man

  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^                   ^^^^

  said, "Do you know that 'Uthman was absent on the day (of the battle)

        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  of Badr and did not join it?" Ibn 'Umar said, "Yes." The man said, "Do

  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^                   ^^^^^

  you know that he failed to attend the Ar Ridwan pledge and did not

  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  witness it (i.e. Hudaibiya pledge of allegiance)?" Ibn 'Umar said,

  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  "Yes." The man said, "Allahu Akbar!" Ibn 'Umar said, "Let me explain

   ^^^^^

  to you (all these three things). As for his flight on the day of Uhud,

  I testify that Allah has excused him and forgiven him; and as for his

  absence from the battle of Badr, it was due to the fact that the

  daughter of Allah's Apostle was his wife and she was sick then.

  Allah's Apostle said to him, "You will receive the same reward and

  share (of the booty) as anyone of those who participated in the battle

  of Badr (if you stay with her).' As for his absence from the Ar-Ridwan

  pledge of allegiance, had there been any person in Mecca more

  respectable than 'Uthman (to be sent as a representative). Allah's

  Apostle would have sent him instead of him. No doubt, Allah's Apostle

  had sent him, and the incident of the Ar-Ridwan pledge of Allegiance

  happened after 'Uthman had gone to Mecca. Allah's Apostle held out his

  right hand saying, 'This is 'Uthman's hand.' He stroke his (other)

  hand with it saying, 'This (pledge of allegiance) is on the behalf of

  'Uthman.' Then Ibn 'Umar said to the man, 'Bear (these) excuses in

  mind with you.'

2)- This aayah referred by Sunni brothers several times. The aayah is

perfect as it was revealed by Allah, but YOUR understanding from the

                                              ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

aayah has so many BUGs which need at least three 300-lines articles to

cover. Sorry that I am not going to do that right now. You want the

heaven, you go ahead and find out about it.

 

3)- You say that the sahabah are not sinless. This is a point which I

would like to address:

 

Since they are not sinless, would you be kind to answer the following

questions:

         1)- Had they ever lied on behalf of the prophet?

         2)- Had they ever done great sins such as killing, Zina,

                 and so on.

         3)- Had they ever been treacherous to the prophet?

         4)- Had they ever added to islamic laws?

         5)- Had they ever prohibited islamic laws?

 

My answers to the above questions will be with references. I would

like you to show me your evidences if you want to say NO to any part.

Please support your answers. Thanks. Please give us some examples to

realize what you mean by "sinless".

 

> >Utman, the third Caliph after the death of the prophet,

> >1)- did not participate in the battel of Badr,

>      You already put the answer to this at the bottom of you article

>      (albeit unhighlighted).

 

I see that you and others have some little problem to understand the

questions in the hadith. Let me first analyze them for you. Then I

will give a reference to see the positive sentence as well.

 

  1)- Do you know that 'Uthman fled away on the day (of the battle) of

      Uhud? Ibn 'Umar said, "Yes."

 

What do you understand from this conversation? The a person asks

if  2 + 2 becomes 10, and the other person says YES, which means

what? It means that this person believes that 2+2 is 10. Now, let see

the above question and answer again. If you carefully open your eyes,

you will see that:

 

  Ibn Umar is saying that Uthman fled away on the battle of Uhud.

 

Another part:

  2)- "Do you know that 'Uthman was absent on the day (of the battle)

       of Badr and did not join it?" Ibn 'Umar said, "Yes."

 

The same conclusion will be true. Uthman was absent on the day of the

battle of Badr, and Ibn Umar is testifying that.

 

  3)- "Do you know that he failed to attend the Ar Ridwan pledge and did

       not witness it (i.e. Hudaibiya pledge of allegiance)?" Ibn 'Umar

       said, "Yes."         ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

Do you understand what YES means? It means that:

 

      Yes, Uthman failed to attend the Ar Ridwa pledge and did not

      witness it.

 

(Just look at the highlighted part, and understand that it was called

Hudaibiya pledge as well. This is the translation of the translator of

that book, and not mine.)

 

Now, you do not want to easily accept my simple logic, do you? If not,

read the following and see that it is in positive sentence now.

 

     -------

     4.359:

     -------

 

     Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

 

  'Uthman did not join the Badr battle because he was married to one of

   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  the daughters of Allah's Apostle and she was ill. So, the Prophet said

  to him. "You will get a reward and a share (from the war booty)

  similar to the reward and the share of one who has taken part in the

  Badr battle."

 

It is really unfair that I have to bring another reference to prove

that the positive meaning of the conversation of an egyption and Ibn

Umar is valid, and none of you, so far, have brought any reference in

your articles. It is really unfair.

 

>      When one daughter was in her last days

>      before death (ill), uthman was with this hounorable lady attending

>      her.  In badr, only 314 sahabah participated, and there was not

>      Moreover, I take the above statement as an insult to the prophet

>      because if the prophet (SAAW) treated Uthman like one who did,

>      why should you belittle the decision of the prophet and not agree.

 

I have read and I have known your answers myself too. You did not need

to bother them again. You did not understand my question at all. My

question is that whatever Uthman's reasons was not to participate in

the battle of Badr, how do you evaluate him among others who

participated in the battle of Badr? You want me to bring more

references, that is fine:

 

     -------

     5.290:

     -------

 

     Narrated Ibn Abbas:

 

  The believers who failed to join the Ghazwa of Badr and those who took

  part in it are not equal (in reward).

 

There is an aayah revealed in connection with Ali-Ibn-Abitaleeb, and

he was given a special status. Read the following, and compare Uthman,

on whom no aayah (in regard to Badr's battle) was revealed,  with

Ali-Ibn-Abitaleeb. That is very simple to understand, isn't it?

 

     -------

     5.304:

     -------

 

     Narrated Abu Mijlaz:

 

  From Qais bin Ubad: 'Ali bin Abi Talib said, "I shall be the first man

  to kneel down before (Allah), the Beneficent to receive His judgment

  on the day of Resurrection (in my favor)." Qais bin Ubad also said,

  "The following Verse was revealed in their connection:--

 

  "These two opponents believers and disbelievers) Dispute with each

  other About their Lord."  (22.19) Qais said that they were those who

  fought on the day of Badr, namely, Hamza, 'Ali, 'Ubaida or Abu 'Ubaida

  bin al-Harith, Shaiba bin Rabi'a, 'Utba and al-Wahd bin Utba.

 

     -------

     5.305:

     -------

 

     Narrated Abu Dhar:

 

     The following Holy Verse:--

 

  "These two opponents (believers & disbelievers) dispute with each

  other about their Lord,"       (22.19) was revealed concerning six men

  from Quraish, namely, 'Ali, Hamza, 'Ubaida bin al-Harith; Shaiba bin

  Rabi'a, 'Utba bin Rabi'a and al-Walid bin 'Utba.

 

     -------

     5.306:

     -------

 

     Narrated 'Ali:

 

  The following Holy Verse:-- "These two opponents (believers and

  disbelievers) dispute with each other about their Lord."  (22.19) was

  revealed concerning us.

 

     -------

     5.307:

     -------

 

     Narrated Qais bin Ubad:

 

  I heard Abu Dhar swearing that these Holy Verses were revealed in

  connection with those six persons on the day of Badr.

 

     -------

     5.308:

     -------

 

     Narrated Qais:

 

  I heard Abu Dhar swearing that the following Holy verse:-- "These two

  opponents (believers and disbelievers) disputing with each other about

  their Lord,"   (22.19) was revealed concerning those men who fought on

  the day of Badr, namely, Hamza, 'Ali, Ubaida bin al-Harith, Utba and

  Shaiba----the two sons of Rabi'a-- and al-Walid bin 'Utba.

 

 

The same goes to Hudaibyiah. I have read the history as well as the

hadith, my dear. I want you to explicity prove to me that the aayah

regarding the Ar-Ridhwan where God was pleased with them is also

APPLICABLE on Uthman. I do not want to read your imagination. I need

references as I have given in several articles.

 

The same goes to those who did not fly away in the battle of Uhud.

 

>      So there you go. That is one insult. I wish you insulted me or

>      personally attaked me but not the prophet (PBUH) and his judjment.

 

I am sorry to tell you and others. You do not understand what "insult"

means at all. I fail to understand why SOME of my Sunni brothers as

well as SOME of women do not understand this word correctly.

 

> >2)- fled away in the battle of Uhud,

>      Fr your reminder (not information), there is an Ayah in surat

>      ali Imran sating "Those who turned away among you

>      when the two crowds met were only caused to do so by some

>      of what they have commited - and Allah has FORGIVEN them" -

>      my own translation -figure out the ayah number, etc.

 

You even did not bother to look at the holy book of Allah. Perhaps you

are talking about Chapter[3], verses [152] and [155]. You need to read

the verses from 152 to 156. I wish I was dead and was not among those

people. God forgives people. That is his mercy. God has forgiven

several sahabah during the life time of the prophet. God has forgiven

those three who fled away in the war of Tabuk. Do you wish you could

have been one of those three who did not follow the order of the

prophet and finally Allah forgave them?

 

However, my question wasn't this even. I asked you to compare those who

fled away (or dispresed) in Uhud with those who did not fly away for me.

How do you value them?

 

> >3)- failed to attend the Ar Ridwan Pledge (Hudaibiya Plege) and did not

> >    witness it.

>      Not true. A lie. What do you mean failed to attend.

 

A typical person to me.

What I meant was that he physically was not in the area where people

gave their hands to the prophet, and I wanted you to tell me with your

proves that whether the aayah of Ar-Ridhwan is applicable on him or not?

If yes, please bring your evidences from Sahih Bukhari or Muslim.

Thanks.

 

I am aware of the reason he couldn't make it. I want you to prove to

me that he was counted among the sahabah who gave their hands to the

prophet on that day, and he was one of those whom God was pleased

with.

For example, You have seen that the prophet gave bounty to Uthman

since he was awarded as those who participated in the Battle of Badr.

I would like you to give us a reference where the prophet tells Uthman

that :

      Uthamn, you have been rewarded as those who participated in

      Ar-Ridhwan.

 

It would be nice.

 

> As for references, I am not sitting on a mound of them and I dont

That is pitty. You are sitting on a mopund of them. You just do not

know where to put your feet.

 

>      I assume it is a problematic issue for shia'h that Uthman was

>   married to two of the daughters       of rasoolul Allah.

 

And I do not understand why you do not understand that marriage with

two daughter of the prophet does not help Uthman too much. Since I am

sitting on a mound of sources, I am going to give another one to help

you to realize that the relationship does not come with dry names.

Noah had a son, and God, himself, announced that this "son" is not

any person related to Noah. He said that he should not be counted

among the relatives of Noah. I do not understand why you do not

understand such simple verses in Quran.

 

     -------

     4.706:

     -------

 

     Narrated Jubair bin Mut'im:

 

  'Uthman bin Affan went (to the Prophet) and said, "O Allah's Apostle!

  You gave property to Bani al-Muttalib and did not give us, although we

                                            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  and they are of the same degree of relationship to you." The Prophet

  said, "Only Bani Hashim and Bani Al Muttalib are one thing (as regards

         ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  family status)."

 

 

I hope that can see and understand that the prophet treated Bani

Hashim and Bani Al Muttalib differently than Uthman and his family.

By reading the following ahaadith and carefully, you will notice that:

 

1)- The journey prayer was essentially shortened and the prophet did

not pray in full when he was in a short journey.

 

2)- Abu Bakr and Umar did the same.

 

3)- Uthman did the same in his early years of rulling.

 

4)- Then Uthman changed the rule and prayed at journey in FULL.

 

5)- Aisha followed Uthman in this manner.

 

My question is :

 

   By whose authority, Uthman gave the prayers in journeys in FULL?

   Why Aisha obeyed Uthman on this?

An Important Note:

 

    If you want to read Fiqh books, please feel free and do that.

    I would like you to bring all the reasonings of Sunni scholars

Let me put it this way:

 

    I bring a few ahaadith which has NO exception. Not even one

    key word exists that you can apply such and such rule only

    on some specific persons. This is what you really see inside

    of hadith. Now, when you read the scholars book, you will note

    that they have said this and this are for some special cases,

    and they are not applicable to anybody. I would like you to show

    me how you CAN NOT apply the hadith to ANYBODY. I want you to

    split the hadith piece by piece, and prove what you have heard or

    read inside scholars books. I have brought you the original hadith

    and I did not mention name of any scholar, and I do not care if

    together.

 

2)- Uthman forbade people from performing Umra and Hajj together

    in his caliphates.

 

3)- Ali clearly disagreed with Uthman, and informed him that his order

    has not come from following the tradition of the prophet.

 

I have one question:

 

       By whose authority, Uthman forbade people from performing Hajj

           and Umra together?

       Why Uthman disobeyed the prophet in this matter?

 

As you see, Uthman did not follow the tradition of the prophet. Do you

  it to him. He said, "Allah is Greater. (That was) the tradition of Abu

     Narrated Shu'ba:

 

  Abu Jamra Nasr bin 'Imran Ad-Duba'i said, "I intended to perform

  Hajj-at-Tamattu' and the people advised me not to do so. I asked Ibn

  Abbas regarding it and he ordered me to perform Hajj-at-Tammatu'.

  Later I saw in a dream someone saying to me, 'Hajj-Mabrur (Hajj

                                                ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  performed in accordance with the Prophet's tradition without

  committing sins and accepted by Allah) and an accepted 'Umra.' So I

                                         ^^^^            ^^^^^^

 

  told that dream to Ibn Abbas. He said, 'This is the tradition of

  Abu-l-Qasim.' Then he said to me, 'Stay with me and I shall give you a

  portion of my property.' " I (Shu'ba) asked, "Why (did he invite

  you)?" He (Abu Jamra) said, "Because of the dream which I had seen."

-------------------------------------

 

The following Hadith clearly shows that Uthman had created some new

laws regarding the payement of Zakat. Ali disagreed with him, and

informed him of what the prophet really did on Zakat. Uthman clearly

stated that he does not need the tradition of the prophet.

I would like to ask you to explain to me why Uthman did against the

tradition of the prophet?

     Narrated Ibn al-Hanafiya:

 

  If Ali had spoken anything bad about 'Uthman then he would have

  mentioned the day when some persons came to him and complained about

                         ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  the Zakat officials of 'Uthman. 'Ali then said to me, "Go to 'Uthman

  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  and say to him, 'This document contains the regulations of spending

                   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  the Sadaqa of Allah's Apostle so order your Zakat officials to act

  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  accordingly." I took the document to 'Uthman. 'Uthman said, "Take it

                                                            ^^^^^^^^^^^

  away, for we are not in need of it." I returned to 'Ali with it and

  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  informed him of that. He said, "Put it whence you took it."

 

  Narrated Muhammad bin Suqa: I heard Mundhir At-Tuzi reporting Ibn

  Hanafiya who said, "My father sent me saying, 'Take this letter to

  'Uthman for it contains the orders of the Prophet concerning the

              ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  Sadaqa.' "

  ^^^^^^^

 

 

As I stated in another article, this document became famous as the

book of Ali-Ibn-Abitaleeb. Other ahaadith inside Sahih Bukhari also

confirms the existance of such document.

 "WHOEVER I AM HIS MASTER, ALI IS HIS MASTER. O God! Love those who love him. Be hostile to those who are hostile to him. Hate those who hate him. Help those who help him. And keep the truth with him wherever he turns." (repeating this paragraph three times).
