- ʻUTHMāN (عثمان)
- This name derives from the Arabic “ʻUthmān”, meaning “young snake”, popular as a male given name among Sunnis. The name was first used in Persia in place of Uthman. It was then adopted by Turkish, Bosnian, Indian and Pakistani communities, among others. The original given name Uthman is generally more popular in the Arabian Peninsula. Uthman ibn Affan (ʻUthmān ibn ʻAffān) (577–656) was a companion of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad. Born into a prominent Meccan clan of the Quraysh tribe, he played a major role in early Islamic history, succeeding Umar ibn al-Khattab as caliph at age 65. The Samarkand Kufic Quran, also known as the “ʻUṯmān Quran”, is an 8th-century manuscript Quran written in the territory of modern Iraq in the Kufic script. It is believed by local Uzbek Muslims to have belonged to the third Caliph, Uthman ibn Affan, and is the oldest Quran in the world.
