((ألقى به ربي))
لما رجع عمر رضي الله عنه من الشام إلى المدينة ، انفرد عن الناس ، ليتعرف أخبار رعيته ، فمر بعجوز في خبائها فقصدها فقالت: يا هذا ما فعل عمر؟ قال: قد أقبل من الشام سالماً ، فقالت: لا جزاه الله عني خيراً ، قال: و لم؟ قالت: لأنه والله ما نالني من عطائه منذ ولي أمر المؤمنين دينار ولا درهم ، فقال: وما يدري عمر بحالك وأنت في هذا الموضع؟ فقالت: سبحان الله ، والله ما ظننت أن أحداً يلي على الناس ولا يدري ما بين مشرقها و مغربها ، فبكى عمر رضي الله عنه وقال: واعمراه ، كل أحد أفقه منك حتى العجائز يا عمر ، ثم قال لها: يا أمة الله ، بكم تبيعينني ظلامتك من عمر؟ فإني أرحمه من النار ، فقالت: لا تهزأ بنا يرحمك الله ، فقال: لست بهزاء ، فلم يزل بها حتى اشترى منها ظلامتها بخمسة و عشرين ديناراً ، فبينما هو كذلك إذا أقبل علي بن أبي طالب و ابن مسعود رضي الله عنهما فقالا: السلام عليك يا أمير المؤمنين ، فوضعت العجوز يدها على رأسها و قالت: واسوأتاه ، شتمت أمير المؤمنين في وجهه ، فقال لها عمر رضي الله عنه: لا بأس عليك رحمك الله ، ثم طلب رقعة يكتب فيها فلم يجد فقطع قطعة من مرقعته وكتب فيها: بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم ، هذا ما اشترى عمر من فلانة ظلامتها ، منذ ولي إلى يوم كذا و كذا بخمسة و عشرين ديناراً ، فما تدعي عند وقوفها في المحشر بين يدي الله تعالى ، فعمر منه بريء ، شهد على ذلك علي بن أبي طالب وابن مسعود ، ثم دفع الكتاب إلى ولده وقال: إذا أنا مت ، فاجعله في كفني ، ألقى به ربي.
((Meet my GOD with it…))
It's a story about one of the Commander of believers -Amir Al Moamneen called "Omar Bin Al Katab" . when he returned from Al Shaam to Al Madeena, he went alone to see his people by himself. He passed near an old woman and she said to him: Hey, man, What Omar did? . he replied: he returned from Al Saam safely. Then she said: May God NOT reward him with good. He said: Why???, she replied: because since he took ruling of people, I didn't get any thing from him, no Dinar nor Dirham. He said: but how can he know anything about you and you are here?!!. She replied: Glory of GOD, I never knew that someone would take ruling of people and know nothing about the people of east and west!!. Omar cried and said: Oh Omar. All people are more knowing than you even old ladies. Then he said to her: O' servant of GOD, would you sell me your complaint on Omar? I feel sorry for him to be in Hell. She replied: are you mocking me?!!!. He said: No, I'm not mocking. And he didn't leave her till agreed to buy her complaint with 25 Dinars. And while he was still there, Ali Bin Abi Taleb and Ibn Masood came there and greeted Omar with his title 'Amir Al Moamneen', and that old lady was listening with shock. She put her hand on her head and said: Oh My God, I cursed 'Amir Al Moamneen' in front of him!. He replied: it's OK, God Bless you. Then, he asked for any cloth or paper to write on, but there was nothing, so he took part of his clothes and wrote on it "By The Name Of God, this is what Omar bought from this lady, her complaint, since he started his ruling till this day …, with 25 Dinars, so I'm free and sinless from anything she will claim on the present of God in The Day Of Judgement and the witnesses are Ali Bin Abi Taleb and Ibn Masood",
Then he gave that document to his son and said: if I died, put this document inside my Coffin to Meet my GOD with it…
I found this story in a newspaper, and I translated it to English because I liked it, and I want you to see deeply: how Omar with his power and authority talked with this woman?, how she made him cry?, how he tried to satisfy that helpless woman and try to purchase not only her complaint, but her satisfaction as well?, How he was so watchful to prepare himself for the Day Of Judgment and was so careful to make good deeds and leave nothing but the good things.
How about us, all of us, 'and no matter the religion', are we careful that much with our daily dealing with people, are we really care about the poor and unnoticeable people? Are we seeking people's satisfaction or at least Are we careful enough to not hurt anyone?
On the other hand, is there any leader in this time really care about his people, the weakest and helpless? It's hard to say? But maybe there are some, but not so many.
What do you think??
