Abdullah Ibn Umar Raliyallahu Anhu

All companions of Rasoolullahi Sallallahu Alihi Wasallam were exemplary in obeying what is taught by Rasoolullah. But if one talk of a companion who maintained high zeal in imitating what Rasoolullahi Sallallahu Alihi Wasallam have taught and acted, it is Abdullah bin Umar Raliyallahu Anhu. For this great quality he was nicknamed as ‘Muttabiu Ssunnah’. He is the son of second Khalifa leader of believers Umar bin Khatab  Raliyallahu Anhu.

We are thankful to Allah for being able to visit his Qabr. It was a sole Qabr in suburb of Makkah away from public cemetery with walls on four sides without roof but with a locked gate. We could not see any marking of Qabr as we peeped through the gate. But there is a name board fixed over the wall reading ‘Maqbara of Abdullah bin Umar Raliyallahu Anhu’. We were happy for being able to view at least the enclosure of the Qabr of this great Sahabi Raliyallahu Anhu.

We recited surah Al Fatihah, Ikhlas and Muawwidatin and gifted the Thawab to this great companion of Prophet. Our guide told he is a constant visitor there and he gained many physical and psychological benefits out of it.

May Allah guide us as real followers of Rasoolullahi Sallallahu Alihi Wasallam and help us to practice His teachings. Aameen!

    Assalamu alaikum

    At first I thought it was a typo but I’ve seen you spell Radi Allahu anhu incorrectly in several places on this post and other posts on your beautiful blog.

    Waalikum Assalam
    Thanks brother for this comment and advice.
    Actually this is transliteration issue from Arabic to English. There is no single or collective character in English to represent (ض) in Arabic. I think no much language have this special character. So one has to assume some alternative. What I did was taking a letter which close to articulation point of the letter (ض) in mouth. As per phonetic rules in Arabic (ض) is pronounces with side of tongue touching sides of upper jaw teeth. Letter l (ل) is articulated with front side of tongue touching just above the upper side of front teeth. Your option is also found being used by some writers but there is a character in Arabic for d (د) which is pronounced close to (ل).
    My suggestion is to avoid using transliteration of Arabic to English as much as possible as it might be misread and often indicate wrong meaning. But I can’t avoid it because many of the blog readers won’t have Arabic character set installed in their computers and it might appear as junk in their browser.
