Description from the publisher:
The second caliph of the Muslims and a close Companion of the noble Prophet; Umar ibn al-Khattab; may Allah be pleased with him; strengthened Islam through his courage and actions. This book tells the story of Umar for young readers presenting his key achievements and milestones in his life. Umar ibn al-Khattab wandered the streets at night to find people in need; he personally helped the poor and weak and was never tempted by the luxuries or wealth a leader could be expected to enjoy. The leader of the world's largest empire; he rejected all forms of ostentation; living in a small hut and eating mainly bread and olive oil. His selflessness and modesty inspired many people to accept Islam. After the Messenger of Allah; peace and blessings be upon him; and Abu Bakr; may Allah be pleased with him; he was the greatest example for believers to follow.
