Naila b Farafsa was the wife of Uthman. She belonged to a Christian tribe. She accepted Islam at- the time of her marriage. She was married to Uthman in 649 C.E. The marriage lasted for seven years only. During these years she remained a close companion of Uthman. She was with Uthman at the time of his assassination. She was wounded in her attempt to ward off the blows of the murderers on Uthman. During his lifetime, Uthman had authorized Amir Muawiyah to demand the "Qasaas,' for his murder.
