All praise is for Allah who ennobled the ability of those who desire to be his servants. I testify that there is no deity except Allah, the King of the distressed and the happy, I testify that our master Muhammad is his beloved Messenger, who establishes the right path, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, his family, his companions and the outstanding leaders.

The excellence and virtues of the second caliph of Islam, Sayyiduna Umar al-Farooq, may Allah be pleased with him, are more than can be counted. Here, I am mentioning the most famous ones. I only wish to bless myself by serving him by this remnant to benefit he who does not know much of his virtues by the ignorance before him. This small collection of Traditions will in sha Allah increase and elevate his rank in our hearts and minds and tell us of his exalted status in the court of Almighty Allah and His beloved Messenger SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam.

“I dreamt that I was at a well drawing water with a young camel’s bucket, Abu Bakr came and drew one or two buckets, but there was some weakness in his drawing. May Allah forgive him.

When ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab asked for permission to enter, they rushed to screen themselves. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, gave him permission and ‘Umar entered while the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was laughing. ‘Umar said, ‘May Allah make you laugh, Messenger of Allah.’ He said, ‘I am amazed at those women who were with me. When they heard your voice, they rushed to screen themselves.’ ‘Umar said, ‘But you, Messenger of Allah, are more entitled to be feared.’ Then he said, ‘O enemies of your selves! Do you fear me and not fear the Messenger of Allah?’ They said, ‘Yes, you are harsher and more severe than the Messenger of Allah.’ The Messenger of Allah said, ‘O Ibn al-Khattab! By the One in whose hand my soul is, whenever Shaytan finds you taking a path, he only takes a path other than your path.'” [Sahih al-Bukhari, Book of the Virtues of the Companions, Hadith 3480]

،وقالماخلفتأحداأحبإلىأنألقىاللهبمثلعملهمنك،وايمالله،إنكنتلأظنأنيجعلكاللهمعصاحبيك،وحسبتأنىكنتكثيراأسمعالنبىصلىاللهعليهوسلميقولذهبتأناوأبوبكروعمر،ودخلتأناوأبوبكروعمر،وخرجتأناوأبوبكروعمر

“‘Umar ibn al-Khattab who had been placed on his bed, and the people gathered around him to make supplication and pray before he was removed. I was among them. I was startled when a man took hold of my shoulders, and it was ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib. He asked for mercy for ‘Umar and said, ‘You have not left behind anyone I would prefer to encounter with the like of your actions. By Allah, I used to think that Allah would put you with your two companions. I reckoned this as I often heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, “I and Abu Bakr and ‘Umar went…” and “I and Abu Bakr and ‘Umar entered…” and “I and Abu Bakr and ‘Umar left.”‘” [Sahih al-Bukhari, Book of the Virtues of the Companions, Hadith 3482]

  1. Subhan-Allah, Masha-Allah, Excellent information, Jazak-Allah -Khair

    I will add the following GEMS for our understanding!!!!!!!!!!.

    Allah – beginning with the name of – the Most Gracious Merciful, the Most Merciful.

    Sallallahu alan-Nabiyyil Sallallahu alaihi wasallam Salatan- wasalamanalaika Ya Rasoolallah.

    Assalaamualycum Wa Rehamtullahe Wa Barkathu.

    Gems of Wisdom by Ameer al-Mu’mineen

    Sayyiduna ‘Umar al-Farooq Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho

    To eat less is healthy, to speak less is wisdom, and to sleep less is worship.

    To speak less is wisdom, to eat less is healthy and to mingle less with the people is safe and serene.

    The one who steps back will not progress.

    Nothing is worst that avarice that destroys the mind, not even Alcohol.

    It is unbecoming of that person who sits with his hands folded and prays to ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala for sustenance. ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala does not rain down gold and silver from the heavens.

    To earn a suspicious living is worse than begging.

    The biggest gift after Iman (Faith) is your wives.

    Attain knowledge before old age settles in.

    Extravagance is also when a person eats whatever he wishes.

    Whosoever hides his secret keeps his safety, safeguarded with himself.

    The person who calls himself learned, indeed he is ignorant, and the one who calls himself from the dwellers of Paradise surely he is from the dwellers of Hell.

    Tawbatun-NasooHa (Accepted forgiveness) is the name of that forgiveness that is asked for a bad deed committed, in such a manner that he never returns to or commits that bad deed again.

    The Strength in action is, never to put of what you can do today for tomorrow.

    It is not becoming of a Muslim to sit down and start praying for sustenance without attempting to earn it, he is well aware that gold and silver does not rain from the skies.

    If it wasn’t for the claim of knowledge of the unknown then I would say five people are from the dwellers of Paradise:

    That family man who is poverty stricken but is patient

    That women with whom her husband is happy and accepting.

    That woman who forgives he husband’s duty of Me-hr (Dowry approved by Muslim law)

    That person with whom his parents are Happy

    And that person who honestly repents from his sins

    Once a sheep was slaughtered and Syeduna ‘Umar al-Farooq Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho persistently asked his servant if he had first sent meat to his neighbor who was a Jew.

    The slave asked why you are asking the same question persistently. He answered that ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala and his Rasūl Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam had constantly stressed the importance of neighbors therefore I too am persistent in stressing the same.

    Three things build love:

    To make Salam (greeting)

    To make space for a person in a gathering

    To address a person in a respectable and good manner

    There are four types of Regrets:

    Regret that spans over a day e.g. When a person leaves his home without eating.

    Regret that spans over a year, just like the negligence shown when cultivating.

    Regret that spans over a lifetime, when a man and his wife are unsuited to each other.

    Regret that is eternal, which is when your Creator is unhappy with you.

    There are three types of people:

    Successful: he who listens to the advice of people and ponders over it.

    Lazy or Lethargic: he who does what he wants without consultation or advice of people.

    Corpse: who neither gives nor listens to advice and consolation.

    Sayyiduna ‘Umar Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho on many an occasion asked this du’a (supplication) to ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala so that certain situations should always remain with him and some things should be removed, the Du’a is: “O ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala! Make me such that I may speak with intellect or reap tolerance with silent. O! ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala do not bestow upon me too many favours, so that I may not be confused by it, not too little that I may forget You. Hence, little yet sufficient in comparison to having plenty thereby becoming indulgent and committing sin.”

    If ever you see a learned person (‘Aalim) leaning towards this World, then know this he is blameworthy for his Religion, because the universal harm is that if a person desires something then he is constantly engrossed in its quest.

    Faith (Iman) is to regard the Oneness of ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala in ones heart proclaim it with your tongue and to obey the fundamental Islamic Instructions.

    The relationship of true humility and genuine fear of ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala is with the heart and not by a show of outward actions.

    Why have you made slaves of those whose mothers had given birth to them free?

    Judgments or Settlements in any cases should be done quickly, so that the accused, due to a prolonged period of time are not compelled to withdraw their accusation.

    It is absolutely necessary not to associate with a beast for though he wishes or means well, yet he would still be accused of committing a crime.

    ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala, shower your Blessings of Mercy on that person who informs me of my faults.

    When a learned man takes a false step then he ensnares himself in a World of wrongdoings.

    One day a man was praising Hadrat ‘Umar Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho, he replied by saying why are you destroying me even more with my desires (Nafs).

    I am not a fool, but I pretend to be a fool, in order to fool the fool. And just when the fool thinks I am a fool, I will expose the fool and show to him that he is the fool.

    I do not look at anything, except, that I see everything with ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala.

    If I die in this condition that I have strives to earn an honest living then it is more beloved to me than even dying as a Martyr.

    Good behavior towards people is equivalent to wisdom, to request politely is half of knowledge, and to ascribe to sound policies is half of one’s livelihood.

    To educate a material person is like placing a sword in the hands of a robber.

    Do not have Faith in a person’s compassion and politeness when he cannot keep his anger under control.

    Do not have Faith in a religious person who is not tested during temptation.

    He is a friend who brings to your attention your faults and to sing praises of a person in his presence is similar to slaughtering him.

    Laughing decreases ones age, while politeness, glamour, pomp and show which ease living standards are indications of people who are unaware of death.

    To show greed and avarice is impoverishing, to be unselfish is enriching and to wish compensation in patience.

    Good deeds are the fulfillment of one’s rights and to do good deeds is a substitute for bad deeds.

    To speak less is wisdom, to eat less is healthy, to sleep less is a prayer and there is peace in solitude.

    Youth before old age and old age before death is a blessing of life.
