• advice • from • umar • bin • al-khattaab •

When advising another man, ‘Umar (radiya Allahu Anh) said,
Do not speak about that which does not concern you. Know your enemy and be wary of your friend, except for the trustworthy one. And no one is trustworthy, except for the person who fears Allah. Do not walk with the evildoer, lest he teaches you some of his wickedness; and do not reveal your secrets to him. And when you consult others in your affairs, consult only those who fear Allah ‘Azza wa Jall.”

    Assalam Alaikum,

    Jazakullah Khair Ukhtee for this great quote from Khattaab (ra). And Jazakullah Khair for keeping this blog alive with beneficial ‘Ilm that is short and sweet. Keep up the work. Looking forward to more of it inshaa’Allaah.
