About The Book

Hadhrat Omar ibn al-Khattab (R.A), the second Rightly Guided Caliph of Islam, made an inconceivably large contribution not only to the geographic spread of Islam, but to the establishment of justice and intellectual freedom as well. 

His reach extended as far as Persia, Egypt, and Anatolia, and he defeated towering empires such as the Sassanids and the Byzantines. 

Such a rapid expansion of the Islamic world would merit acclaim in itself, but Omar (RA) did not stop there; his purpose was not to conquer lands in the name of Islam, he sincerely wanted to establish peace and justice in accordance with Allah's way. Thus, he began what would be known as the Islamic judicial system, improved the economic system, developed a calendar, and united the Muslims.

Publishers Note: This book is the result of the lifelong study of Allama Shibli, the great Indian scholar and Orientalist of modern times. It is a well-known fact that he had to do an intensive research work which led him to ransack the libraries of Constantinople, Beirut, Alexandria, Paris, Berlin and London. Its publication took the Muslim world by storm and was considered a great literary event in the history of islamic literature. By extensive study of the subject 'Allama Shibli collected and collated facts which were lying buried in unpublished manuscripts in the great libraries of the East and the West. The book inspired an unparalleled enthusiasm and ran into several editions in a very Short period.
