This is the second volume from this series, which deals with the life of Umar ibn al-Khattab ( ), the second of the Four Rightly-Guided Caliphs. The evaluation of Amir al-Mu'minin Umar al-Farooq, may Allah be pleased with him, and his far-sighted policies is captured in a statement attributed to the Prophet (S), 'There were in the nations before you "inspired people", and if there is any one of them in my nation, it is Omar.'

The first four volumes in this series explore Islamic history during the period of the first Four Rightly-Guided Caliphs. Later volumes would be devoted to the History of Islam, down through the ages to modern times, insha'Allah.
