Some incredible reforms of Usman (RA) in Madinah

by Ady Grewal Content writer
Hazrat Usman (RA) was the son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and also called Dhū al-Nurayn (The processor of Two lights). Because he married two daughters of Prophet (SAW) when the first one had died. He was the early Sahabi who embraced Islam and migrated from Makkah to Madinah. He was the third caliph of Islam who was appointed under the opinion of all Sahaba the companions of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). 

Before his appointment, Umar (RA) was the caliph of Madinah. After the death of Umar (RA), there held a meeting in Saqeefah Garden which was the specific point to choose the caliph of Islam. Garden is still visited by the pilgrims from the UK with cheap umrah package UK to perform the minor pilgrimage. After a long discussion of the murder of Umar (RA) eventually, all companions agreed to appoint the next Caliph of Islam to Usman (RA). 

Usman (RA) took great steps for the solidarity of Madinah State and for that purpose he introduced the following reforms:

Compilation of the Holy Quran

As the Holy Quran was written at different things such as stones, leaves and leather substances, so he compiled the whole verses in a certain book to easily understand. Moreover, the Holy Quran was written in an Arabic language, so there was a dire need to interpret it in other languages as well. Because Islam had spread beyond the Peninsula and Usman (RA) took the step to translate in all kinds of languages.

Military Expansion 

The expansion of Military was stepped in the reign of Umar (RA), however, to follow him Usman (RA) also expand his Military to occupy the rest of areas which were not conquered by Umar (RA). He also expanded his force in the naval purpose and conquered large area against the Byzantine Empire. In 651 AD, Abdullah Bin Zubair and Abdullah bin Saad were sent by Usman (RA) to leas reconquest expedition towards west who fought against the army of Gregory the Patrician, Exarch of Africa and neighbors of Heraclius. Thus, the Muslim army conquered some great portion of Spain during the caliphate of Usman (RA). 

Economic and Social Administration 

Before caliph, Usman was had great experience regarding trading and its particulars. So, in no time he made the State strong economically. No doubt, economic and social administration were systematically administered in the time of Umar (RA), however, Usman modified them where he found some complications. In the reign of Umar (RA) there was some strictness in a different walk of life, but as the time of Usman started, some strictness let relax. 

People got a loan without interest from the state treasury. Usman (RA) rightly said that they must utilize the public funds according to the best judgment and no one is allowed to complain against such best action.  In this way, both Muslims and non-Muslims of the Rashidun Empire enjoyed an economically prosperous life in the period of Usman (RA). And people still behave in good manners. If you want to see the marks of the Rashidun Empire, so you could be helped by umrah December in this regard. 

On 17th June he was assassinated from the rebels in his own house during the night. His house was near the Masjid e Nabvi which still recalls the memory of honest caliph and pilgrims from all corner of the world visit his house through package after performing Umrah. Rebels climbed the back wall of the house and crept inside. The guards at the gate were unaware of their entrance. The rebels entered his room and killed him. Naila the wife of Usman (RA) protested but she also became the victim of their cruelty. His Body was buried in without giving Ghusl in Jannat ul Baqi as in Muslim theology the martyr is buried without washing the body. However, the funeral prayer was performed by the Jabir bin Muta’am.
