He was ‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan ibn Abi’l-‘Aas ibn Umayyah ibn ‘Abd Shams ibn ‘Abd Manaf ibn Qusayy ibn Kilab.
His lineage coincides with that of the Messenger of Allah (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in ‘Abd Manaf. His mother was Arwa bint Kurayz ibn Rabee’ah ibn Habeeb ibn ‘Abd Shams ibn ‘Abd Manaf ibn Qusayy.
Her mother was Umm Hakeem al-Baydah’ bint ‘Abd al-Muttalib, who was the full sister of ‘Abd-Allah, the father of the Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and it was said that they were twins (this was narrated by al-Zubayr ibn Bakkar). So he was the son of the cousin (daughter of paternal aunt) of the Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and the Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was the cousin (son of maternal uncle) of his mother. The mother of ‘Uthman became Muslim and died during the caliphate of her son ‘Uthman, and he was among those who carried her to her grave.‘Uthman’s father died during the Jahiliyyah.
