‘Uthman bin Maz’un R


‘Uthman
bin Maz’un R was from Banu (Family of) Jamh branch of Quraysh tribe.

Grandfather of Jamh was Husays bin Ka’b. Ka’b bin Luw’i, the ancestor of
‘Abdullah bin
Maz’un R was also an ancestor of the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad S.


‘Abdullah
bin Maz’un R and all three (3) of his brothers were among the as-Sabiqun al-Awwalun (Early Muslims).

‘Abdullah bin Maz’un R had the following three brothers:

1.      Qadamah bin Maz’un R

2.      Sa’ib bin Maz’un R

3.      ‘Uthman bin Maz’un R

All of them migrated to Habash (Ethiopia) with many other Muslims, to save themselves from the torture of Quraysh.

They had a sister named Zaynab bint Maz’un R. She was married to ‘Umar bin Khattab . ‘Umar bin Khattab R became the second Khalifah (Caliph) of Muslims.

Zaynab bint Maz’un R had two children:

1.      Hafsah bint ‘Umar R

2.      ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar R

Hafsah bint ‘Umar R later became one of the Ummul Mominin (Mother of the faithful), a title given to the holy wives of the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad R.

Their father was Maz’un bin Habib.

‘Uthman bin Maz'un R was one of the very few Quraysh who did not drink wine before Islam.

‘Uthman bin Maz'un R was among the first fifteen people to accept Islam. The early converts to Islam were tortured by the Quraysh for leaving their age-old religion.

In the year 9BH (Before Hijrah) (613 AD), the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad S allowed these early Muslims to migrate out of Makkah.

More than one hundred (100) Muslims migrated to Habash (Ethiopia), at different times in small groups, to save themselves from the torture of Quraysh. The Christian King Najjashi (Negus) of Habash (Ethiopia) welcomed the migrants Muslims.


‘Uthman
bin Maz'un R had migrated to Habash (Ethiopia) twice. Most migrant Muslims returned to Makkah from Habash (Ethiopia), after hearing a rumor that all Quraysh had accepted Islam.

They were tortured more on their return. Most of them went back to Habash (Ethiopia). ‘Uthman bin Maz'un  was among those who migrated to Habash (Ethiopia) once again.

‘Uthman bin Maz'un R was a very religious person. He spent a lot of time in prayers. Once he did not come out of his house for several days. He spent all his time praying, while he was in his house.

The Messenger of Allah, Muhammad S told ‘Uthman bin Maz'un S that Islam does not have only one single dimension. In Islam, the word prayer has much wider meanings. Every thing done by us for any good cause is ‘Ibadah (Prayers). Islam is a complete way of life. One does not have to leave this world to become a good Muslim.

‘Uthman bin Maz'un R participated in the battle of Badr. It was the first major battle between the Muslims and the Quraysh. Poorly equipped and fewer Muslims defeated the large well-armed army of Quraysh.

‘Uthman
bin Maz'un R was the first Muhajir (Migrant) from Makkah to die in Madinah. He was the first Muhajir to be buried in Baqi' al Gharqad (A famous graveyard in Madinah).
