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!
