Piety of Hazrat Umar Radhiallahu anho


Taqwa of Hazrat Umar Radhiallahu anho

Once Hazrat Omar had lighted the lamp and was doing some work in that time Hazrat Ali RA came. Hazrat Omar RA at once put the lamp out. Hazrat Ali RA asked “Why did you put out the lamp on my arrival?” Hazrat Omar RA the oil in the lamp is from the “Baiyul Maal” ( Public Treasury)- till now I was doing the work of the baitul maal for that reason for me to use the oil was allowed. But since you have arrived we will now talk and hence for us to use the oil of the .Baitul Maal is not allowed. That’s why I put out the lamp.”

Subhanallah, how scrupulous were the companions may Allah be pleased with them. If someone showed this much scrupulousness in this age people would call him too cautious.
