Umar ibn al-Khattab, the Second Caliph of Islam
Author: Abdul Basit Ahmad
Paperback: 48 Pages
'Umar bin Khattab (radiyallaahu 'anhu) is one of the great Companions of the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) and second Caliph of Islam. He was so firm in his practice of Islam that he usually could sense what was right or wrong before the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) had informed others of it. He used to say his friends: If a mule stumbles near the Euphrates River, I fear being questioned by Allah as to why I had not paved the road for it. This book sheds light on the life and struggle of the greatest example of a just ruler. We should follow his footsteps to maintain justice in every walk of our life.
