Today's podcast is on the life of the 3rd Sahaba r.a. mentioned in the hadith of glad tidings of paradise and the 3rd Khalifah of Islam, Uthman ibn Affan r.a.
We all know about him r.a. as shy and handsome person. However, not much has been talked about his achievements as Khalifah and his steadfasntness when it came to impelemting Islam comprehensively in the land. This aspect of his life seems to be pale in comparison with that of previous two Khulafah, Abu Bakar r.a. and Umar r.a., but in reality it is not. It is equally important and is to be learnt by all muslims on this earth.

We all know Umar r.a as a strong built tall man having firm head on his shoulder, short tempered and being a good wrestler. We also know how he came about embracing Islam.

In this podcast listen to Br Mohamed Trad dig briefly into the Seerah of Umar r.a. and touch upon all the above mentioned aspects of his life.
