Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah


Humility brings out modesty and modesty brings in humility.

Yes, they go hand in hand and both of these attributes are planted in the hearts of those who fear Allah Azza Wa Jall, for indeed these two cannot fully enter your hearts when you, yourself do not try to learn about your religion.

Hypocrites. They are everywhere. 

Even when we read about the stories of the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum we already know that such hypocrites have caused such problems to the Muslim Ummah, and this is something the ‘Umar Ibn Al Khattab really disputed.

When he became the Amir ul Mumineen, he was so keen about the hypocrites, that whenever a person would die he would be keen to know if Huthaifah Radiyallahu Anhu, who was known as the keeper of secrets, who was the only one who the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalaam disclosed the names of the hypocrites of Al Madinah, was present, if he was then he will lead the janazah and if he wasn’t he wouldn’t lead the janazah prayer.

Indeed, during the caliphate of ‘Umar Ibn Al Khattab, Allah Azza Wa Jall blessed so many victories upon the Muslims, and because of the personality of ‘Umar, he wanted Muslims to feel the honor that Allah Azza Wa Jall bestowed upon them. 

He was keen to make the Muslims wear their honor, but not to the extent that humility should be exaggeratedly showcased.

Once, ‘Umar saw a young person walking while being hunched over, so ‘Umar said loudly, "O Young man, raise your head. true humility is in the heart and not shown through the body and face. If anyone shows his humility through his body in excess of what is contained in his heart, then he is a hypocrite."

'Umar used to like for young pious people to wear nice clothes and perfume. He used to hold the view that young people should be experts in archery, swimming, horseback riding.

He used to say, “O Muslim nation, your greatness will remain as long as you continue riding on the back of horses.”

'Umar indeed wanted Islam to remain a strong and dominating religion, because of this he would say to the young people, "Your personalities should demonstrate the respect of Islam. Do Not show yourselves as weak and humiliated people."

Another narration says that once ‘Umar saw another person who was showing off that he was pious by walking with humility and so ‘Umar rebuked him and said, "Do not defame your religion."

We should all remember that humility lives in our hearts, so let it stay in our hearts, let us do our obligations in a way that we do not need to tell people that "i’m pious" or anything like that, because for a reason or two it is not the people that we try to please, it is Allah Azza Wa Jall.

Ponder and ask yourself, >what good will it bring to me when I please people yet displease Allah?

'Umar Ibn Al Khattab Radiyallahu Anhu paid lots of attention with the youth during his caliphate as well as the whole Muslim Ummah, because the Muslim youth will be the flag bearers of Islam when fitnah upon fitnah will come, so strengthen your youth O Muslim Nation! 

May Allah Azza Wa Jall gift every Muslim couple beautiful pious kids that will bear the Shahada upon their hearts and the name of Allah upon their lips and refrain from the haraam and enjoin what is halal and be firm believers and steadfast people who would pray 5 times a day throughout their lives, and may He guide all the Muslim parents to become instruments of guidance for their children and make every Muslim among the saliheen!
