Hazrat Umar-e-Farooq (R.A)

Second Caliph ( 582-644 C.E ) Hazrat Umar Farooq (r.a) is the most
respectful personality in Muslim Ummah after Abu Bakr (r.a). He is
also one of the Companions (r.a) of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w), who
was given the reward of Heaven in the world by Prophet Muhammad
(s.a.w.w). He was born in the tribe of "Adi", a branch of Quresh, 40
years before migration of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w), from Makkah to
Madinah and 13 years after the incident of Aam-ul- Feel in 582 C.E.
His name was "Abu Hafs", a patronymic name of old traditions. He was
the strongest and brave one in all the Makkah. No body
in Makkah existed in His youth who could dare to fight with Him. But
after embracing Islam He was the most fair and just in ever. On 6th
year of Prophet hood by Muhammad (s.a.w.w), he embraced Islam. His
embracing Islam, is the most popular story of the Islamic history. He
was the one who took Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) and a small group of
Muslims in Kaaba to offer Namaz for the first time in history. The
wordings to Kuffars was: "If anyone want to make his children Orphan
and wife as a widow, do stop us!". The same words were heard by the
Kuffars again at the time of migration of Muslims to Madinah. Hazrat
Umar Farooq (r.a) earned the title of "Al-Farooq" (the one who makes
the clear difference between Right and Wrong) from the Prophet
Muhammad (s.a.w.w). He participated in all the battles of Islam with
Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w). History notes that He donated his half of
the property when being asked for by Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) in the
way of ALLAH. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) noted and said many times
that it looks, Umar speaks and Quran is bestowed upon. Few examples of
ALLAH's rule are; Hijab, offering 2 prayers as "Nafal" at
"Baab-e-Ibrahim" in Kaaba, solution for the prisoners of Badr, not to
offer Duua on "Munafiq" grave etc.... Hazrat Umar Farooq (r.a) passed
his great Caliphate of approximately 10 years after the death of
Hazrat Abu Bakr (r.a). His Caliphate is the most popular and memorable
Caliphate according to fair and just amongst all others. A Jew named
"Abu-Lolou-Feroz" inserted a dagger in His back, while He was offering
the Fajr prayers to Muslims in the position of prostrating (Sajdah).
Jews kept the name of a stone in name of their partner who martyred
Hazrat Umar Farooq (r.a) as "Feroza" (a sky blue like stone usually
been wore in the form of
a ring in finger. Hazrat Umar Farooq (r.a) breathed his last on 26th
Dhul-Hajj, 23 Hijri. He is buried next to the side of the Prophet
Muhammad (s.a.w.w). Sayings of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w): 1. I see
that devil either from humans or jinn, runs away from Umar. (Tirimzi)
2. I saw in a dream that I was given a bowl of milk which I drunk and
remaining I gave it to Umar. (Tirimzi) 3. No doubt, ALLAH has issue
truth, on the tongue and in the heart of Umar. (Tirimzi) 4. I saw a
dream that I am in the Heaven, there I saw Rameesa (my quilt aunt) and
I heard someone's footstep, I asked: who is this?. I was answered: it
is Bilal and I saw a palace with a handmaid standing in front of it, I
asked: whose palace is this?. She said: Umar bin Khattab's. I wished
to see it from inside but, Oh Umar!, I divided my attention from your
shame. Hazrat Umar (r.a) said: My father and mother be sacrificed upon
You, should I ponder from Your saying?. (Bukhari) 5. If some else
Prophet should have been proposed
by ALLAH after me, would have been Umar bin Khattab. (Tirimzi)
