Hazrat Usman Ghani (R.A)

Hazrat Usman Ghani (R.A) was the Third Caliph.

His name was Usman bin Affaan and his titles include “Al Ghani" (The Generous) and “Zun Noorain” (Possessor of Two Lights).

He was born in the Holy City of Mecca about 6 years before the birth of Prophet (S.A.W). He was from an intelligent, respected, and very wealth family.

On the invitation of Hazrat Abu Bakr (R.A), He (R.A) embraced Islam.

Hazrat Usman (R.A) was a generous and humble person. If any person spoke to him in a harsh tone he always replied gently.

He (R.A) donated a huge amount of property in the name of Islam, thus gaining the title of “Ghani” by the Prophet (S.A.W). Although being extremely rich, he lived a simple life.

The Holy Prophet (S.A.W) gave two of His Daughters in Nikkah to Hazrat Usman Ghani (R.A), giving him the title of “Zun Noorain”.

At the age of 84, whilst reading the Quran Hazrat Usman Ghani (R.A) was martyred.

He is buried in the blessed graveyard of Madina Shareef, called “Janath al Baqi”.
