The Khutbah Of Hazrat Umar Bin Abdul Azeez (Rahmatullahi Alaih)

In his inaugural Khutbah when he was appointed the Ameerul Mu’mineen, Hazrat Umar Bin Abdul Azeez (Rahmatullahi alaih), known as Umar The Second, said:
 “I command you to adopt Taqwa. There is nothing superior than Taqwa.
 Engage in virtuous deeds to adorn your Aakhirat.
 Allah suffices for the worldly needs of the one who searches and prepares himself for the Aakhirat.
 Reform your moral and spiritual life, Allah will reform your worldly life.
 He who is proud about his ancestry, will be trapped in the torments of Maut.
 There is no obedience to anyone in anything which entails disobedience to Allah Ta’ala.
 Obey me as long as I obey Allah. If I disobey Allah, your obedience will no longer be incumbent for me.”
