'Ali ibn Abi Thalib (k.w.) Said 'Utsman (r.a.) was from the People of Paradise

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal (r.a.) recorded a narration with its isnad from Muhammad ibn Hathib (r.a.) that he said, “I heard ‘Ali reciting:

Those for whom the Good (Record) from Us has gone before, will be removed far therefrom. (Surah al-Anbiya’:101)

And he said that from amongst them is ‘Utsman.”

This is found in Fadha’il asw Swahabah and is swahih.  Imam ibn Abi ‘Aaswim (r.a.) in his as-Sunnah, Imam ibn Jarir ath-Thabari (r.a.) in his Tafsir and Imam az-Zamakhshari (r.a.) in his Mukhtaswar Kitab al-Muwafaqah, all recorded it as well.  In addition, in Imam ath-Thabari’s (r.a.) Tafsir, a similar atsar is recorded through a different chain of transmission.
