Description from the publisher: Hazrat Umar ibn Al-Khattab (RA) was the second of the four ‘Rightly Guided’ Caliphs. At first, he railed against the new Islam religion until he read parts of the Qur'an. He was instantly impressed and became a believer. Hazrat Umar ibn Al-Khattab (RA) is credited for establishing most of the major political institutions of the Muslim state and stabilizing the rapidly expanding Arab empire.
Umar bin Khattab (RA) is one of the great Companions of the Prophet (SallaAllahu'alayhi wa sallam) and second Caliph of Islam. He was so firm in his practice of Islam that he usually could sense what was right or wrong before the Prophet (SallaAllahu'alayhi wa salam) had informed others of it.
The life of Al-Farooq ‘Umar ibn al-Khattâb (RA) is a shinning page of Islamic history, which outshines and supercedes all other histories. The history of all nations put together does not contain even a part of what his life contained of noble conduct, glory, sincerity, jihad and calling others for the sake of Allah(SWT).
