''UMAR AL-FARUK (RA): HIS LIFE AND ACHIEVEMENTS'
A Monumental 3 DAY COURSE delivered by SHAYKH ZAHIR MAHMOOD for the 1st TIME Exclusively in LONDON!
The study of the life of Umar b. Khattab is not just the life of a great personality. It is one of the greatest examples of the manifestation of divine guidance. A man whose enmity for Islam was so great, that it was believed his father’s donkey had a greater chance of becoming a Muslim than him. However, when guided by Islam, Umar became the man regarding whom the Prophet peace be upon him said, “If there was a Prophet to come after me it would have been Umar b. Khattab (ra)” (Tirmidhi)
How much do you know about Umar? This course will take you on a journey into the life of Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, from his birth, youth, adulthood, disbelief and enmity towards Islam to immense belief and piety, culminating in many of his glorious achievements.
From Sahih Al-Bukhari, the Prophet (SAW) said: "There were among those who came before you individuals spoken to. If anyone among my nation is one of these, it is surely Umar."
Those "spoken to" means individuals who, while not prophets, receive inspirations which match or foretell the actual Communication from Allah received by the prophet of their time.
Abu Saeed Al Khudri reported that Muhammad said: "Every prophet has two wazeer (ministers) from the dwellers of the heaven (angels) and two wazeer from the inhabitants of the earth. So, my wazeer from the dwellers of heaven are Jibrael and Mikael and my wazeer from the earthlings are Abu Bakr and Umar." from Jami Tirmidhi
Abu Dharr reported that he heard Muhammad say, "Allah has placed Truth on Umar's tongue and he speaks only the truth." From Abu Dawud
