Umar ibn al-Khattab, the second one of the Four Rightly-Guided Caliphs, was rather tough against injustice and violence, but he was rather gentle when it came to any matter related to religion and kindness. His exem­plary life is depicted with lots of narrations and anecdotes.

Umar abandoned anything material and strove for Islam regardless of his life and wealth. This state pleased the Messenger of God. When he spoke with the Companions about Umar, he would say: “There is no angel on earth that does not pay respect to Umar. There is no devil on earth that does not run away from Umar.”

Because Umar pleased God as well, one day God Almighty ordered His Messenger to tell Umar that he would be granted Paradise. The Messenger of God told Umar this good news, and Umar felt extremely joyful and embraced the Messenger of God. Despite this good news, he never felt comfortable and cer-tain about himself; he struggled for this holy goal until the last minute of his life.
