In her elegy the poetess Laila Akhaylya said:
"Uthman the Caliph, the son of Affan has been assassinated.
All affairs of the Muslims have fallen in the state of disorder.
The good stands suppressed, and evil predominates.
The blood of Uthman cries for vengeance.
O Muawiyah demand the "Qasaas" for the murder of Uthman;
We will not rest content until his death is avenged."
