Khalifa Uthman bin Affan - Eulegies on the Death of Hadrath Uthman

Walid b Uqba

Walid b Uqba a step brother of Uthman mourned on the death of Uthman in the following verses:

"What happened to this night,

It is so long and dreary. The stars have dimmed in their luster. O miscreants do not plunder the house of Uthman O Banu Hashim do not be in a hurry about assuming the caliphate ! Before us those who killed Uthman; And those whom they elevate to the caliphate

Are both guilty.

A river of blood flows between you and us,

By God I can never forget the tragedy of the assassination of Uthman;

How can a thirsty man be indifferent to the well?

They have killed Uthman so that they may succeed him;

We will fight against you.

O Muslims rise up to take revenge for the murder of Uthman.

If you hesitate you will not be your mother's son

The blood of Uthman cries for vengeance

And you must respond to the call.
