Leassons Learned from the Companions – Uthman Session 3

Currency was given to many other fictitious stories of the so-called waywardness of Uthman and his government. No body could tell from where such stories emanated, but nevertheless they became the common talk of the people, and in the absence of any refutation, the people generally came to believe in the rumors.

Such as what happens today. When people spread their slanderous comments against a righteous person, oftentimes if the comments are not addressed the people take them to be true.

The position became embarrassing and some of the companions suggested to Uthman that reliable agents should be sent to various provinces to investigate the matter and report about the truth of such rumors.
