Uthman bin Affan (R), one of the early men who accepted Islam in Makkah, became a Muslim from the first moment. He put all his wealth under the service of Islam and most of his resources were spent to satisfy the needs of poor Muslims. Recognizing his generosity and devotion to Islam, he was told by the Prophet (S) that his place would be in Paradise on the Hereafter. He was married to the Prophets daughter, Ruqayah (R). After the death of her wife, he married her sister Um Kulthum; for that, the people at that time called him Dhun Nurain, "The Man with the Two Lights."
