(Al-Qasas: 85)

Hazrat Ali was nominated as successor by Prophet (SAW) and should be the Caliph.
First person to disrespect openly companions, Abu Bakr and Umar (RA).

Ali (RA) accused him of lying and didn’t associate with him

Ammar b Yasir to Egypt
For conformation that the investigation results were true

Muhammad b Abu Hudhayfa captured Egypt
Abdullah Ibn Sa’ad returned to Egypt
Failed to recapture Egypt
Retired to Ramlah

Musa Ash’an, governor of Kufah, was a nominee of rebels

Abdullah b Aamir, governor of Basra, left for Hajj

Thus Egypt, Kufa, and Basra were cut off from Uthman’s caliphate

1000 persons sent from Egypt to Medina.
4 groups
Disguised as pilgrims

Their plan:
Mention their own believes to Caliph.
Return to the people and claim he admitted those believes and did not give them up or repent.
Dress as pilgrims, besiege his house and tell him to stand down.
If he doesn’t we kill him.

They advised Uthman (RA) to kill the rebels.
He disagreed with them as:
We will forgive them and inform them of our efforts
They will be punished if they commit a punishable crime or declare disbelief.
Mu’aawiyah offered:
Uthman (RA) should join him Syria
Send Syrian army

Why didn’t he accept the offer?

Forbade entry of food, provisions, water
Hazrat Umm Habiba brought water and provisions but was not allowed inside.
Approximately 20 days

Abdullah bin Abbas was appointed as “Amir-ul-Hajj” and a letter was entrusted to him.
The letter
He did not ask for help
Discouraged violence with rebels
Maintain unity
He was concerned more for the welfare of the community and not his own safety
People dispersed after listening to the letter
By the time Abdullah b Abbas brought back the letter he was assassinated

Al Ghaffiqi hit him with his axe.
Also attacked by sword.
Naa’ilah, his wife, tried to protect him thus her fingers were chopped off.
They robbed the Caliph’s house and Baitul-Mal.
Friday 18th Dhul Hajjah 656 CE

Laws of Allah
Sunnah of His Messenger (SAW)
Policies of his two predecessors (Shaikhayn)
