‘Umar bin ‘Abdil ‘Azeez (rahimahullah) was the khaleefah of the Muslims for just two years before passing away in the year 101 A.H. at the age of thirty-nine. Before his appointment as the khaleefah, he was ‘drowning’ in wealth, leading a life of opulence, luxury and extravagance.

After becoming the khaleefah, his life underwent a complete transformation as he adopted the sunnah of simplicity and completely ‘divorced’ material pleasures (read more on this here). Furthermore, besides the basic allowance from the Baytul Maal (public treasury) which all Muslims were entitled to receive, he did not allow his wife and children to take any additional wealth from the Baytul Maal as this would amount to abuse of public wealth.

When ‘Umar bin ‘Abdil ‘Azeez (rahimahullah) was on his death bed, his brother-in-law, Maslamah bin ‘Abdil Malik, came to see him. Maslamah addressed him and said, “O Ameerul Mu-mineen! You have deprived your children of this wealth. Why don’t you make a bequest, entrusting them to me and others like me, from your relatives, so that we may look after them and see to their needs (after your demise)?”

There was once a teacher who asked the students, “What do you want to be in life?” The children gave varying replies, typically ranging from ‘doctor’, to ‘lawyer’, to ‘accountant’ etc. However, from all the answers given, there was one answer that really stood out, an answer that the teacher had never heard before. The child spontaneously replied, “I want to be a Sahaabi”.

Obviously, nobody can become a Sahaabi, but what this ‘career choice’ said about the child is that he aspired to be LIKE the illustrious Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum). While the other children were impressed with the lifestyle and wealth of doctors and lawyers, he identified with the beautiful qualities of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), such as their piety, generosity, love for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), disinterest in the world, loyalty to Islam, etc. and he wished to follow in their footsteps. How proud his parents must have been to hear that he gave this amazing answer!

Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports the following incident from Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam):

From the people of the past, there was a husband and wife who were extremely poor. On one occasion, the husband arrived from a journey and entered his home, suffering from the pangs of hunger. He asked his wife, “Do you have any food?” (Seeing him in this pitiable state, she did not have the heart to tell him that there was no food, so) she said, “Yes, glad tidings, for the sustenance of Allah Ta‘ala will soon come to you!”

(The husband’s hunger was so severe that he could not wait, and) he thus asked her for the food immediately. He said to her, “What is the matter with you? Go and see if you have any food or not!” His wife (calmly) responded, “In a few moments! We have hope in the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala!”
