Hazrat Uthman Summons the Mischief-Makers

When everyone had gathered, Hazrat ‘Uthman(ra) informed them of the whole affair. The two informants also stood by as witnesses and gave their testimony. Upon this, all the companions gave the following verdict:

“Execute these people because the Holy Prophet(sa) has said, ‘May the curse of Allah be upon such an individual who calls people towards his own obedience or the obedience of another, at a time when there is an Imam who is present. Kill such a person whoever he may be.’”

Then, they reminded everyone of the words of Hazrat ‘Umar(ra):

“I do not deem the execution of any such person permissible for you in which I do not have a part.”

In other words, no one may be executed unless there is an indication from the government. Upon hearing the verdict of the companions Hazrat ‘Uthman(ra) stated:

‘No, we will forgive them and accept their pleas. We will counsel them with all our efforts and we will not oppose anyone so long as he does not clearly violate the law or express disbelief.’ 1
