In his elegy Hatab b Yazid Mujashe said:
"With the death of Uthman, the age of good has passed away, Now evil will stalk the earth. The people have become estranged to their religion. Everyone is now treading the path of evil and destruction.
O God have mercy on Uthman, He was so good and noble. He stood firm in the cause of Truth, He welcomed death and did not compromise with the principles for which he stood; Those who murdered him stand cursed TheY are traitors to Islam.
