Justice of Caliph Umar Ibn Al Khattab

‘Umar b. Al-Khaṭṭāb (may Allah be pleased with him) was known for his power, and praiseworthy might.

‘Umar b. Al-Khaṭṭāb (may Allah be  pleased with him) was known for his power, and praiseworthy might. He used his vigorous strength, bold intellect, and far-sighted wisdom for the sake of Islam and for the empowerment of Muslims.

The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) titled him as “Al- Faruq”—the Criterion between good and evil. If there was anyone known for bringing strength to the Ummah, it was ‘Umar. When the Muslims were making Hijrah (migration) from Makkah to Madīnah, all but ‘Umar would perform it in secret, for fear of oppression.

When his time came, he strapped his sword around his neck, marched to the Ka’abah in broad daylight, and performed ṭawāf. He then stood up and announced, “I am about to make Hijrah to Madīnah. Whoever wants their mothers to be bereft of their son, their wives to be widowed, and their children to be orphaned, then meet me behind this mountain at such time.”

The Ṣaḥābah said that no one dared to meet ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him)except the fools of Makkah, and he taught them all very valuable lessons before he sent them back home.
