Advice From Umar Bin Khattab (Radi Allahu Anhu)

Recommended Posts





Once Umar (Radi Allahu Anhu) said to Al-Ahnaf bin Qais (Radi Allahu Anhu):



“Oh Ahnaf, the more one laughs, the less dignity will he possess.

Whoever jokes (excessively) is a person who will be taken lightly.

Whoever does something frequently will known by that thing.

Whoever speaks often, errs often; the more often one errs, the less modesty he will possess; Whomever has a low level of modesty will also have a low level of piety; and when one has a low level of piety, then his heart dies.”

When advising another man, Umar (Radi Allahu Anhu) 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 evil; 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.”



(Sifatus-Safwah 1/149)
