Life Is A Journey

‘Umar Ibn Al-Khattaab and Aboo Dardaa met, and the latter asked, “Do you remember the hadeeth of the Prophet?” ‘Umar asked, “Which hadeeth?” Aboo Dardaa replied, “The Messenger of Allaah said, ‘You should keep your worldly things to the extent that a traveller keeps his luggage for his journey.’

‘Umar said, “I remember this hadeeth.” Aboo Dardaa said, “O ‘Umar, are you aware of what we did after that? We have accumulated the worldly things in large quantities.

At this, they began to weep while remembering the life of Allaah’s Messenger all the way until Fajr!

[Manaaqib ‘Umar, by Ibn Al-Jawzee, p. 146]

One Response to “Life Is A Journey”

  1. O you who have believed, do not take as intimates those other than yourselves, for they will not spare you [any] ruin. They wish you would have hardship. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater. We have certainly made clear to you the signs, if you will use reason.
    surah ali imraan
