Umar Farooq(ra), the second Caliph of Islam, ruled for about ten years over a total area of 2,251,030 square miles. His rule was exemplary, every decision and action of his being guided by the word of Allah, as enshrined in the Quran. It is difficult to imagine that any ruler who had a huge empire, like Umar Farooq's(ra), would live like a simple, common man. But that is exactly what he did. He wore clothes with many patches, slept on the floor, ate plain food and travelled to foreign lands with just one servant and a camel. Umar Farooq (ra) had a strong sense of duty and justice. Throughout his rule, everyone was treated equally and with justice, whether he was a Muslim or a non-Muslim. He lived in the love and fear of Allah. In the history of the world, there was and still is no other ruler like him: he was unique.
Umm Aiman is a delightfully written exploration of the life of Umm Aiman, an Abyssinian slave who worked as a maid in the house of Aminah, the Prophet’s mother. The Prophet revered her as a mother, because she looked after him and raised him after his mother’s death. The main focus is on her life in Makkah – first as a slave and then as a freed woman, how she became a Muslim, her marriage, motherhood, her migration to Madinah and her belief in the Prophet and his mission. She endured hardships bravely and played a significant role in spreading the message of Islam. The colourful illustrations that accompany the stories will make this an enjoyable read for children as well as adults, and will help them learn about and appreciate the life of Umm Aiman.
Uthman Ibn Affan (ra), the third Caliph of Islam ruled for twelve years, the longest among the rightly guided Caliphs. During his rule people became economically more prosperous and he further undertook such activities and projects which also improved their overall quality of life. He was a peace loving, liberal and kind hearted ruler. Uthman Ibn Affan (ra), had all the qualities of the good Muslim but his generosity and modesty stood out. He was the richest person among the Quraish but he spent most of his wealth in the well being of his people and in the cause of Islam. In particular he helped the orphans and the widows. In spite of being rich and powerful he was extremely humble and lived a simple life. Uthman Ibn Affan (ra), was very religious and a man of principles and whatever might be the circumstances he never compromised with his beliefs and principles. Thrice he received the glad tidings of Paradise from the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
