'Ali ibn Abi Thalib (k.w.): ‘Utsman (r.a.) was Dzu an-Nurayn
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
‘Ali (k.w.) said about ‘Utsman (r.a.), after his passing, “He is the person who is remembered as ‘Dzu an-Nurayn’ in the gathering of angels, for the Prophet (s.a.w.) married two of his two daughters to him.” “Dzu an-Nurayn” means “the possessor of two lights”. This is found in the Shi’ah book, Iswabah ma Iswtiyyab, and in the Sunni Tarikh al-Khulafah and Kanz al-Ummal.
