Umar ibn Al-Khattab (Leading Companions of the Prophet)
Exemplary of Truth and Justice
Umar was the second of the four ‘rightly guided’ caliphs. At first, he railed against the new Islam religion until he read parts of the Qu’ran. He was instantly impressed and became a believer. Umar is credited for establishing most of the major political institutions of the Muslim state and stabilizing the rapidly expanding Arab empire.
