Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) used to walk in the streets of Madinah at night to see to the needs of his subjects. Once he came across a woman who was asking her daughter to mix water with milk so that they could increase their profits. The young girl refused saying that the Caliph, Umar, had passed an order forbidding such a devious act. When the mother replied that the Caliph was not there to see and would not know about it, the girl answered that Allah was omnipresent even if the Caliph was not present. Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) was so pleased with the reply that he asked his son, Aasim, to marry the girl. Umar Ibn Abdul Aziz who would later become the just ruler of the Muslim empire was born from this union.

Umar Ibn Abdul Aziz brought about a number of financial reforms during his reign as Caliph. From amongst them were the remission of numerous taxes and the correct expenditure of state funds. Once a request was made to him for extra paper for official work. He answered: "Make the point of your pen finer, write closely and concisely as Muslims do not require such detailed reports which are an unnecessary burden upon the state."

The result of all of this was that the general masses became so well-off that it became difficult to find beggars who would accept the Zakaah (mandatory charity given to the poor). Yahya Ibn Sa'eed relates that Umar Ibn Abdul Aziz appointed him to collect the Zakaah in Africa. When he had done so he looked around but he could not find a single individual who could accept Zakaah. He had no alternative but to purchase a number of slaves and emancipate them on behalf of the Muslim populace.


  1. Honesty produces good results in the long run. Dishonesty and lies may bring quick money and results but the end result is always evil.
  2. The Islamic financial system if implemented effectively can remove poverty.

It is Sunnat to treat an illness with Kalunji (black seed / Habba Souda) and honey. (Bukhari‐ chapter on medicine) Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said that Allah has placed cure in these two things. There are many Ahadith narrated in praise of Habba Souda / Kalunji and Honey.

A woman had bought lots of shoes over time and she decided it was time to kick the habit. She really took it seriously, even changing her driving route to avoid her favourite shoe store. One evening, however, she arrived home carrying a shoe box. Her husband grinned at her, but it didn't faze her at all.

"These are very special shoes," she explained. "I accidentally drove by the shoe store and there in the window were the most perfect shoes I've ever seen! I felt this was no accident, so I thought I'd let fate decide. If I would get a parking spot directly in front of the shop, the shoes were meant for me. And sure enough, the eighth time around the block, there it was!"
