(salam)

Its always interesting to note how people act after they attain power and wealth.. therefore.. I wanted to hear about events which can improve our understanding of the lifestyle of the caliphs during their caliphate... wassalaamun alaikum

i would recomend the books hayatus sahaabah and fazail aamal for you

By most accounts the first 2 caliphs esp. umar lived a simple life prefering coarse food and clothes for themselves ...this all changed with Uthman when the first seeds of kingship were laid in Islam.

Obviously by comparing with the later caliphs like muawiyah and walid even uthman seemed a "pious" caliph

Syedna Uthmaan (ra) was already wealthy even before he became Calipah.

Wasn't he the most wealthy amongst the 6 which were appointed in the caliphate committee by Umar?.. that could explain why so many went 'Uthmaan for caliph' during the meeting.. wassalaamun alaikum
