Umar Ibn Al-Khattab
The second caliph of the Islamic State and a close Companion of the noble Prophet, Umar ibn al-Khattab, may God be pleased with him, strengthened Islam through his courage and his actions.
Living a life based on simplicity and duty, Umar was renowned for upholding justice whether it concerned his governors of the Islamic territories or the poorest and weakest of society. His leadership was based on humility; his lifestyle was simple and frugal. At times he could be seen to judge others harshly, but the person on whom he was the most severe was himself.
Umar wandered the streets at night to find people in need, he personally helped the poor and weak and was never tempted by the luxuries or wealth a leader could be expected to enjoy. The leader of the world's largest empire, he rejected all forms of ostentation, living in a small hut and eating mainly bread and olive oil. His selflessness and modesty inspired many people to accept Islam. After the Prophet and Abu Bar, he was the greatest example for people to follow.
This book brings to life the events of Umar's life and his unique character, offering insight into the one whom the beloved Prophet named "Farug" (the person who can see the difference between right and wrong, between darkness and enlightenment).
