The exile of Abu Dharr al-Ghifari, one of the elite sahaba, to Rebeze during the term of Usman, has been the foundation of serious criticism directed at the Caliph. Abu Dharr, who had no problems with the government during the first two caliphs, or during the first six years of Usman, opposed first Muawiyah, the governor of Damascus, and then Usman during the second six years of the Caliph’s term. It can be said that this subject, which has a character open to exploitation, has a background that needs to be analyzed. Abu Dharr’s reaction was against the economical disparity seen in the period between rich and poor. In this context, Abu Dharr stated that the rich should distribute the remainder of their wealth after the subtraction of their sustenance needs, to the poor, and he indicated verse 34 of the Tevbe surah of the Quran as the basis. His behavior of social consciousness disturbed the rich sector of the society, and the Caliph was informed of the situation by Damascus governor Muawiyah. The ideas defended by Abu Dharr were absolutely his own ideas, and not imposed on him by others, and they were not supported by the other elite sahaba. In order to prevent a possible class conflict in the community, Usman consulted with him and sent him to Rebeze. The cancellation of the prohibition placed by Omer preventing the sahaba from leaving Medina, and the clearly apparent disparity in the distribution of wealth in the community constitute the part of the problem related to Usman.
