MERITS OF HADRAT UMAR AL-FAROOQ (R.A)

Praise of Sayyidna Umar (RA) in words of Hadrat Ali (Karam Allahu Wajahu)

bn Abu Mulaika reported: I heard Ibn ‘Abbas as saying: Wlien ‘Umar b. Khatab was placed in the coffin the people gathered around him. They praised him and supplicated for him before the bier was lifted up, and I was one amongst them. Nothing attracted my attention but a person who gripped my shoulder from behind. I saw towards him and found that he was ‘All. He invoked Allah’s mercy upon ‘Umar and said: You have left none behind you (whose) deeds (are so enviable) that I love to meet Allah with them. By Allah, I hoped that Allah would keep you and your two associates together. I had often heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: I came and there came too Abu Bakr and ‘Umar; I entered and there entered too Abu Bakr and ‘Umar; I went out and there went out too Abu Bakr and ‘Umar, and I hope and think that Allah will keep you along with them.

They said: Yes, you are harsh and strict as compared to the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him).
