Topic: Sayings of Umar ibn Al-Khattab Posted: 14 December 2010 at 5:52pm
One who keeps his own counsel keeps his affairs in his own hand.
Fear him whom you hate.
The wisest man is he who can account for his actions.
Do not put off today's work till tomorrow.
What regresses never progresses?
He who does not know evil will fall into it.
When a man asks me a question, I know his intelligence.
Don't forget your own self while preaching to others.
The less of the world, the freer you live.
Avoidance of sin is lighter than the pain of remorse.
If patience and gratitude had been two she camels, it would have mattered little on which I rode. May God have mercy on him who sends me my faults for a present!
During his Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah, Umar ibn Al-Khattab heard one of the camel drivers singing. People asked Umar ibn Al-Khattab as to why he did not stop the camel driver from singing. Umar ibn Al-Khattab replied, "Music was the camel driver's provision for a journey."
