Publisher's Summary

The Kingdom of Hazrat Umar (RA)

The life of Al-Farooq Umar ibn al-Khattab is a shining page of Islamic history, which outshines and supersedes all other histories.

The author has striven to study the personality and era of Ameer al-Mumineen Umar, the second caliph, to the best of his ability, without claiming to be infallible or free from errors.

He studied the life of Umar from his birth until his martyrdom.

This book proves the greatness of Umar and confirms to the listener that his knowledge, faith, intellect, attitude, eloquence, and influence were all great. His greatness was based on his understanding and application of Islam, his strong relationship with Allah, and his following the last Prophet of Allah (PBUH). He represented greatness in all its aspects.

May Allah accept the writer's noble efforts and make this audiobook beneficial to all who listen.

Learned religion through love.

Whenever any question or problem arose, Hazrat Umar (R.A.) would gather the Companions (R.A.) and ask whether Hazrat (S.A.W.) had any statement or decision in that regard. The Qur'an and the Sunnah were his constitution and a distinguished group of Companions were members of his council. Even the lowest citizen was not only brave but encouraged to criticize his actions - there are many examples of this.

Extraordinary quotes present.

During the time of Hazrat Umar (R.A.), the real foundation of the Islamic state was established. It is during this period that many Islamic laws are said to have become real. Although their full development was achieved gradually according to the historical development, it was started during the time of Hazrat Umar (RA). He was the ruler of all the commanders who had succeeded in the efforts of the Muslims.

I’ve got motivation about religion.

Immediately after his acceptance of Islam, he went to the house of Abu Jahl, the greatest enemy of Islam, and said to his face, "I have come to you to inform you that I believe in Allah and His Messenger Muhammad, and the Shariah that He has brought. I know it to be true'. Hearing this, Abu Jahl cursed him and said, "May Allah harm you and the news you have brought."

Contains a lot of information.

Only three days after Hamza's acceptance of Islam, another Quraysh hero Umar Ibnul Khattab suddenly became a Muslim by God's grace. Of course, this was the fruit of the Prophet's special prayers. The next morning he came and embraced Islam and went to the Ka'ba and prayed publicly. Then Umar's acceptance of Islam proved that he was more beloved to Allah.

Resourceful presentation indeed.

Hazrat Umar (R.A.) used to pay special attention to speechless animals. He used to know whether any master was torturing the animals or not, whether the animals were starving or not. He thought that these languageless people are also God's creation. Showing kindness to every creature is a rewarding act. He considered it against Islamic Shari'ah to abuse animals, to give them more work than their power, to do things for which they were not created.

Well research!

Umar served as one of Abu Bakr's chief secretaries and advisors during his reign. During the Battle of Ridda, he initially disagreed with some of Abu Bakr's views, but later accepted them and helped him. Eventually, the rebels were suppressed and the Arabian Peninsula was unified. When many Hafiz were martyred in the Battle of Yamama, Umar appealed to Abu Bakr to compile the Qur'an into a librarian. As a result, the Qur'an was compiled into a bibliography.

Amazing book!

Umar played an important role in the establishment of the Caliphate after the death of Muhammad (PBUH). During the preparation for the burial of Muhammad (pbuh), some Muslims sat on the outskirts of the city at a place called Sakifah to discuss his successor. Then Abu Bakr (ra), Umar (ra) and Abu Ubaidah ibn al-Zarrah (ra) came here. At that time there was a demand from among the Ansars that the successor should be selected from among the Ansars.

Like it and learned a lot.

Umar was born into the Banu Adi tribe of the Quraysh tribe of Makkah. His father's name is Khattab Ibn Nufail and his mother's name is Hantama bint Hisham. His mother was a member of Banu Makhjum tribe. In his youth he tended his father's camels near Mecca. His father was respected in the clan for his intelligence. During his reign, Jerusalem was captured by the Muslims.

So nice of it to listen.

He is also referred to as the first Umar in history. Due to the similarity of names, the later Umayyad Caliph Omar Ibn Abdul Aziz was addressed as Omar II. Umar's position is after Abu Bakr Radiyallahu Tayala Anhu among the Sunnis in terms of the status of the Companions. The Shia community does not accept this position of Umar Radiyallahu Tayala Anhu. The boundaries of the Caliphate grew unimaginably during the reign of Umar(s).

Beautiful presentation!

Umar Ibn al-Khattab was the second Caliph of Islam and one of the main Companions. After the death of Abu Bakr Radiyallahu Tayala Anhu, he became the second Caliph. Umar Radiyallahu Tayala Anhu was an experienced jurist of Islamic law. He was given the title of Al-Farooq (The Discerner of Truth and Falsehood) because of his advocacy of justice. The title Ameerul Mu'minin was first applied to him.

Enriched with some beautiful presentations.

Hazrat Umar (RA) accepted the religion of Islam and asked the Prophet (PBUH), "O Messenger of Allah (PBUH), what is the number of Muslims today? Then, the Prophet (PBUH) replied, "Forty (forty) people with you." Hazrat Umar (RA) said, "This is enough. From today, these forty of us will go to the Kaaba house and publicly worship the Almighty Allah. I will not allow the truth to be suppressed due to the fear of falsehood." The Prophet (PBUH) happily allowed this goodwill of Hazrat Umar (RA).

Informative listen!

Hazrat Umar (RA) was very skilled in administrative work. In a word, he brought order to the Islamic financial system, Zakat system. He brought everything under a beautiful law during his time through Finance Department, Judiciary Department. As a result, the sense of guilt decreased during his time and the gap between rich and poor also decreased a lot.

Beautiful edition of peace.

Hazrat Umar (RA) is one of those personalities of Islam who have presented the right example of justice and fairness. Hazrat Umar (RA) built many educational institutions in the service of Islam. He established educational institutions wherever he conquered, including Makki Pathshala, Madinah Pathshala, Basra Pathshala, Kufa Pathshala, Syrian Pathshala. It is easy to understand the importance Umar attached to education.

Truly meaningful composition!

Hazrat Umar Farooq (RA) recognized the good deeds of Muslims. He had a very fine standard of knowing people. Umar was a strict person for those who broke the law. In this case, he never cared about relationships, wealth or the power of a person. We all know the fact that he punished his son for drinking alcohol. Not only his own children, he deposed many governors as punishment.

Beautiful content presented here.

One day Hazrat Umar (RA) was passing somewhere in front of a dustbin. He stood there for a while. His friends didn't like it. Omar Ra. He said, This is your world, for which sacrifice everything. Whom you spend everything to get. By this incident we can understand how worldly our ruler was. Even after having so much wealth, women and country, he only thought about the hereafter.

How informative composition it is!

Hazrat Umar (RA) was a unique ruler. His good governance cannot be compared in the history of the world after the Prophet (PBUH). Historian Imamuddin said, Umar (RA) was not only a conqueror. He was one of the greatest rulers and successful national leaders of all time. He reformed every aspect of the state system for good governance. The first jail was established during his tenure.

A must thing to purchase.

Thousands of Bedouin prisoners of war were found in the battle of 'Ridda' during the reign of Hazrat Abu Bakr (RA), and he released all of them by declaring amnesty. This greatly increased the popularity of Hazrat Umar (RA) among the Bedouin tribes. Umar (ra) divided the provinces into many 'districts' to bring the whole empire under rule. He also introduced police system for the first time to maintain order.

Lovable composition indeed.

Even as the second caliph of Islam, he lived a very simple and unpretentious life. The Caliph, whose fear the kings of the world always trembled, lived a very humble and simple life. He did not take any bodyguard with him. The allowance he received from the exchequer was also meagre। He used to eat and drink very little, without which it was impossible for people to survive. He used to complete his meal only with dates and bread.

Obvious knowledgeable presentation.

Caliph Umar (RA) was extremely kind and just. All memorable qualities were gathered in his character. In piety, tenderness, moderation and prudence, he was the epitome of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). He was a worthy leader of the Muslims. Under his able management the semi-civilized Arab nation was well saved from degradation. His justice and impartial judiciary beautified and stabilized the society. His unblemished character has made him one of the best.
