Usman Ghazi was the Emir of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, an Islamic militant group based in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He succeeded Usman Aadil after the latter's death in a drone strike. His current whereabouts and condition are unknown after his group was defeated in fighting with the Taliban in Zabul province, though he is presumed dead. Lately the faction of the IMU remaining loyal to the IS leader of Khorasan, Hafiz Saeed Khan, confirmed the death of Ghazi and named a man called Abduholiq as their leader.

Usman is also used in Chechnya (a traditionally Islamic country) as a first name for men. Since Chechnya is forced to follow the Russian naming system, it is also found as a middle name in the form of a patronymic, namely Usmanovich.
