'Ali ibn Abi Thalib (k.w.) Defended 'Utsman's (r.a.) Decision to Standardise the Readings of the Qur'an

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

It is recorded, in Fath al-Bari of Imam ibn Hajr al-‘Asqalani (r.a.), that during the caliphate of ‘Ali (k.w.), some agitators were still upset about ‘Utsman (r.a.) for forcing one reading of the Qur’an and burning all the others.  ‘Ali (k.w.) said, “O people, do not accuse ‘Utsman of extremism, and only say what is good about him.  By Allah, he did what he did openly in front of all of us.  by Allah, if I were given authority, I would do the same as he did.”
