Abd-Allah ibn ‘Umar ibn Aban al-Ju’fi said: My maternal uncle Husayn al-Ju’fi said to me: O my son, do you know why ‘Uthman RA was called Dhun-Noorayn(possesor of two lights)? I said: I do not know. He said: No one else was ever married to two daughters of a Prophet, from the time Allah created Adam until the Hour will begin, except ‘Uthman. Hence he was called Dhun-Noorayn.

[Sunan al-Bayhaqi]
