[الله المستعان]-How many of us heed this warning of Umar Ibnul Khattaab?!
Ameerul Mumineen Umar Ibnul Khattaab (radiyallaahu-anhu) stated:
”Indeed, we are a people whom Allaah has given honour by way of Islaam; so when we (begin) to seek honour through other than what Allaah has given us honour, Allaah will degrade us!”
[Reported by Al-Haakim (rahimahullaah) in Al-Mustadrak (1/61-62]
