Introduction of Sayyiduna ‘Umar Farooq-e-A’zam Razi Allah o AnHu

Introduction of Sayyiduna ‘Umar Farooq-e-A’zam The second caliph, Sayyiduna ‘Umar’s patronymic name is ‘Abu Hafs’ and his title is ‘Farooq-e-A’zam’. According to a narration, in the sixth year of the proclamation of Prophethood, he was the 40th person to embrace Islam. In fact, he embraced Islam by virtue of the supplication made by the Beloved Prophet  PBUH. By his accepting Islam the Muslims became very pleased and they got such a great support that the Noblest Prophet PBUH offered Salah publicly in congregation with the Muslims inside the sacred Haram. He remained engaged in Islamic expeditions against wicked disbelievers being a majestic warrior.

Hazrat Umer Farooq contributed in all Islamic campaigns and in all strategic decisions of war and peace headed by the Noblest Prophet PBUH as a faithful minister and comrade. The first caliph, Ameer-ul-Mu`mineen, Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddeeq nominated Sayyiduna Farooq-e-A’zam as the caliph after him. He executed all the responsibilities of caliphate marvellously and proved to be the worthy successor of the Beloved Prophet PBUH.

One of the wicked disbelievers named Abu Lulu Feeroz (a fire worshipper) attacked Sayyiduna Farooq-e-A’zam Razi Allah O Unho with a dagger during Salat-ul-Fajr. He succumbed to the fatal injury and embraced martyrdom on the third day of the attack. At the time of martyrdom his blessed age was 63.

Sayyiduna Suhayb  Razi Allah Anho led his funeral Salah. On Sunday, the 1st of Muharram-ul-Haraam, 24 Hijri, this great companion of the Beloved Prophetٖ PBUH  was buried beside Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddeeq  Razi Allah Unho who had been resting beside the Greatest Prophet PBUH.
