    Umar رضي الله عنه & The sheep herder



    Ibn Umar رضي الله عنه went on a journey once with some companions, and they saw a sheep-herder who they invited to eat with them.

    He said: I am fasting, and ibn Umar رضي الله عنه said: You are fasting whilst it is so hot, and while you are between all these plants and sheep?

    The herder replied: I'm taking advantage of my remaining days (i.e. the days before death).

    Ibn Umar رضي الله عنه was impressed by this reply and said: Can you sell one of your sheep to us? We'll feed you from its meat when you break your fast, and we'll also pay you for it.

    The herder replied: It does not belong to me. It belongs to my master.

    Ibn Umar رضي الله عنه said: What would your master say if you told him that it was eaten by a wolf?

    The herder raised his finger to the sky and said: What about Allāh?

    Ibn Umar رضي الله عنه kept repeating this phrase the herder said, and when he arrived at the city, he went to the herder’s owner and purchased him and his sheep from him. He then freed the herder and gave him his sheep as a gift.

    Alhamdulilah amazing story
    وَاقْصِدْ فِي مَشْيِكَ وَاغْضُضْ مِن صَوْتِكَ ۚ إِنَّ أَنكَرَ الْأَصْوَاتِ لَصَوْتُ الْحَمِيرِ - 31:19

    And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys."


    أَلَمْ تَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُ ظَاهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ - 31:20

    Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him].
