Imam Muhammad Taqi Lisan al-Mulk (r.a.) on 'Utsman ibn 'Affan (r.a.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

It is recorded, in Nasikh at-Tawarikh, by Imam Muhammad Taqi Lisan al-Mulk (r.a.), the Shi’ah scholar of sirah and ahadits, that ibn ‘Abbas (r.a.) said, “May Allah have Mercy on Abu ‘Amr,” the kunya of ‘Utsman (r.a.).  “By Allah, he was the noblest and most righteous of men.  He prayed a great deal at the time before dawn, shed many tears when he remembered the Fire, the first to do righteous deeds and to offer help at the time of calamity, beloved, confident and loyal, the one who equipped the army of Tabuk, the son-in-law of Rasulullah.”
