The Case of The Killers of Uthman Ibn Affan Between Ali Ibn Abi Taleb and his Opponents (in Arabic)

Auther : Mohammad Dhaifullah Al-Batayenah

This paper deals with the situation following the killing of Uthman IBN Affan, especially the paying of homage to Ali Ibn Abi Talib as caliph, the attitudes towards the killing and killers of Uthman, and the results arising therefrom.

The historical sources which deal with the case of the killing and killers of Uthman show that this case was the most important issue which governed the course of events in those days. These sources reveal that disagreement arose between the caliph Ali on one side, and Talhah, AlZubayr, Asyeshah, and later Mu’aawiyah Ibnn Abi Sufyan on the other. These opponents of Ali Requested that the Quranic rules concerning killers should be applied on the killers of Uthman. As for the attutude of Ali Ibn Abi Taleb concerning this case, historical sources differ and show that the stand of Ali Was ambiguous.

However, since the killing of Uthman and Ali’s stand in relation to it were unprecedented and unfamiliar events to the newly born Islamic society, Muslims were not certain as to what should be done. Many hesitate to support Ali, and many opposed his views on the case, this was one of the strongest factors that undermined his position, weakened his party in the face of his opponents especially Mua’awiyah Ibn Abi Sufyan, and consequently made it easier for Mua’awiyah to become a caliph.
