Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Seven


(Continuing from Part Six)

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) continued:

By Allah! Just a few moments later, Rasulullah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) passed by with Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) who was carrying a cloth for Rasulullah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). When Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) saw him, he stood and went to him. He then spoke quietly into the blessed ear of Rasulullah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), after which Rasulullah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) came and sat. After sitting, he turned to me and said, “O ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)! Accept the invitation which Allah Ta‘ala is giving you to His Jannah, as I am indeed the messenger of Allah Ta‘ala to you and to His entire creation.”

Hearing these blessed words of Rasulullah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), I could not help but accept Islam. I then recited the Shahaadah saying, “There is no deity besides Allah alone, who has no partner, and Muhammed (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is His servant and messenger.”

Soon thereafter, I married Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the respected daughter of Rasulullah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).
