“Everyone is more knowledgeable than Umar!”

leave a comment »

Narrated from Ibn Jad’aan:

‘Umar (radhi’Allaahu ‘anhu) heard a man say, “O Allaah, make me from amongst the few” so he said “Ya ‘Abdallaah! And who are the few?”

He said, “I heard Allaah say ‘And none believed in him except a few’ ‘And few of my servants are grateful’ and he mentioned another verse whereupon ‘Umar said, “Everyone is more knowledgeable than Umar!”

[‘Uluww al-Himmah: Ch.2, pg. 41]
