‘Umar Ibn Al-Khattaab And His Zuhd

It was narrated from Ash-Shifa’ Bint ‘Abdullaah that she saw some people who walked slowly and spoke slowly.

She asked, “Who are these (people)?”

They said, “They are Ascetics (people who forsake the pleasures of this world).”

She said, “By Allaah, when ‘Umar Ibn Al-Khattaab spoke, he could be heard, when he walked, he walked fast. and when he hit, he caused pain, and by Allaah he was a true ascetic.”
