"Uthman issued the following directive to the defense forces: "Keep in mind that you are to guard the frontiers of the Muslim dominions. You are to protect the life and property of the Muslims. I am aware of the laws that Umar formulated for your guidance. Indeed such laws were made with my consultation and the consultation of other Muslims. Be wary that I do not receive any complaint that you are violating or thwarting such laws. If you do so, God will place other persons in your stead. I am under obligation to protect your rights and privileges, but you should always weigh how far you deserve such rights and privileges.
