Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:07--> 00:00:18

one of the nights Omar was doing the policing as usual. And then he heard a woman and Subhanallah she was suffering of labor. She was about to deliver a baby.

00:00:19--> 00:00:30

And he ran right away to his wife. Imagine, Homer at that time was like an emperor. He was rolling over more than 22 countries.

00:00:31--> 00:00:32

So

00:00:33--> 00:00:39

if we were to use the terms of today, his wife is the first lady.

00:00:40--> 00:00:41

His wife is the queen.

00:00:42--> 00:00:57

But look Subhanallah how humble they were. So he told his wife, he said, I'm having good news for you. And I'm giving you an opportunity to make us an ad. This was the ultimate goal in life.

00:00:58--> 00:00:59

Not

00:01:00--> 00:01:11

to take a photograph, to be in the front line, in the main article in the newspaper, not to be the top story in a television TV show. Now,

00:01:12--> 00:01:36

their main concern was a lot of this during the night nobody even can see him. She said yes, of course. Then they took some stuff with them and carried it. He took his wife. And while the wife of Omar was helping the lady, during her delivery, Omar was preparing some food for her.

00:01:37--> 00:01:45

And then, after that was over, the lady looked at Omar and his wife, and she said,

00:01:48--> 00:01:48

I hope

00:01:49--> 00:01:52

that more than half top will be like you.

00:01:53--> 00:01:58

Omar did not smile, and took a selfie with her and say By the way,

00:01:59--> 00:02:09

he just walked away because he did what he did. Only to please Allah. He's not looking for fame. He's not looking for even thank you from the lady.

00:02:10--> 00:02:13

May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with Alma

00:02:14--> 00:02:21

And may Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to learn these great lessons from the greatest generation
