Umar II on Kindness: None is kind but that Allah will be kind to him

January 4, 2017

Ibn Hibban reported: Umar ibn Abdul Aziz, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “The most beloved matters to Allah are three: forgiveness in a position of power, moderation in a position of affluence, and gentleness in worship. And no one is kind to another in this world but that Allah will be gentle with him on the Day of Resurrection.”
