    Umar on Humility: If we seek honor from other than Islam, we will be humiliated

    Abu Amina Elias February 23, 2013
    Tariq ibn Shihab reported: Umar ibn Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, left on a journey to Syria and with him was Abu Ubaida. They came upon a creek, so Umar dismounted from his camel, took off his sandals and placed them over his shoulder, and then led the camel over the creek. Abu Ubaida said, O commander of the faithful, are you doing this? You have taken off your sandals and placed them on your back and you led the camel through the creek yourself. I do not think it will be easy for me to get the people of this country to honor you. Umar said, If only someone else had said this, O Abu Ubaida! I have made this a deterrent for the nation of Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. Verily, we were a disgraceful people and Allah honored us with Islam, so if we seek honor from other than Islam, then Allah will humiliate us.

    عَنْ طَارِقِ بْنِ شِهَابٍ قَالَ خَرَجَ عُمَرُ بْنُ الْخَطَّابِ إِلَى الشَّامِ وَمَعَنَا أَبُو عُبَيْدَةَ بْنُ الْجَرَّاحِ فَأَتَوْا عَلَى مَخَاضَةٍ وَعُمَرُ عَلَى نَاقَةٍ لَه فَنَزَلَ عَنْهَا وَخَلَعَ خُفَّيْهِ فَوَضَعَهُمَا عَلَى عَاتِقِهِ وَأَخَذَ بِزِمَامِ نَاقَتِهِ فَخَاضَ بِهَا الْمَخَاضَةَ فَقَالَ أَبُو عُبَيْدَةَ يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أأَنْتَ تَفْعَلُ هَذَا تَخْلَعُ خُفَّيْكَ وَتَضَعُهُمَا عَلَى عَاتِقِكَ وَتَأْخُذُ بِزِمَامِ نَاقَتِكَ وَتَخُوضُ بِهَا الْمَخَاضَةَ مَا يَسُرُّنِي أَنَّ أَهْلَ الْبَلَدِ اسْتَشْرَفُوكَ فَقَالَ عُمَرُ أَوَّهْ لَوْ يَقُولُ ذَا غَيْرُكَ أَبَا عُبَيْدَةَ جَعَلْتُهُ نَكَالًا لَأُمَّةِ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّا كُنَّا أَذَلَّ قَوْمٍ فَأَعَزَّنَا اللَّهُ بِالْإِسْلَامِ فَمَهْمَا نَطْلُبُ الْعِزَّةَ بِغَيْرِ مَا أَعَزَّنَا اللَّهُ بِهِ أَذَلَّنَا اللَّهُ
