As Salamu Alaikum

A beautiful Hadith we should ponder over


“It is Umar” (Radhi Allahu Anhu)

Narrated by Shaqiq (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I heard Hudhaifah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) saying, "While we were sitting with 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) he said, 'Who among you remembers the statement of the Prophet about the afflictions?'

Hudhaifah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "The affliction of a man in his family, his property, his children and his neighbours are expiated by his prayers, Zakat (and alms) and enjoining good and forbidding evil."

'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "I do not ask you about these afflictions, but about those afflictions which will move like the waves of the sea." Hudhaifah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said,

"Don't worry about it, O chief of the believers, for there is a closed door between you and them."

Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "Will that door be broken or opened?"

I said, "No. it will be broken."

'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "Then it will never be closed,"

I said, "Yes."

We asked Hudhaifah, "Did 'Umar know what that door meant?"

He replied, "Yes, as I know that there will be night before tomorrow morning, that is because I narrated to him a true narration free from errors."

We dared not ask Hudhaifa as to whom the door represented so we ordered Masruq to ask him what does the door stand for? He replied: "It is Umar."

(Al-Bukhari Vol 9 No 216)
