Ṭalḥa b. ʿUbayd Allāh (Arabic: طلحة بن عبیدالله) was one of the companions of the Prophet (s) and the early Muslims. He was the cousin of Abu Bakr b. Abi Quhafa, the First Caliph. Talha was a gallant warrior in the battles of the early days of Islam in the army of Muslims. After the demise of the Prophet (s), he cooperated with the early caliphs and helped them in their conquests. He was appointed by the Second Caliph in the Six-Member Council as a candidate for occupying the position of caliphate after him. He was active in the story of killing 'Uthman b. 'Affan, the Third Caliph, and encouraged people to kill him. After 'Uthman's murder, Talha pledged his allegiance with Imam Ali (a), but he breached his pledge after a while, launching the Battle of Jamal against Imam Ali (a) with the help of al-Zubayr, Aisha, the Prophet (s)'s widow, and some Umayyads; they came to be known among Shiites as Nakithun. In this battle, Talha was killed by Marwan b. al-Hakam who was in the army of Nakithun.
