‘Abbas advice to his son

leave a comment »

Ibn ‘Abbas (رضي الله عنه) said:

My father (Al-‘Abbas (رضي الله عنه)) said, “O my son, I see that the Amirul Muminin (‘Umar Ibn Khattab (رضي الله عنه)) brings you close to him, and he sits alone with you and consults you along with some of the companions of the Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah. Learn three things from me: fear Allah and never disclose his (‘Umar’s (رضي الله عنه) ) secrets; never lie to him; and never backbite about anyone to him.”

[Al-Hilyah]
