There is something that has preoccupied (me)…


إن بعض الخلفاء سأل عمر بن ذر عن القدر . فقال : هاهنا ما يشغل عن القدر . قال : ما هو ؟ قال : ليلة صبيحتها يوم القيامة . فبكى وبكى معه

السير الأعلام النبلاء

لمن يريد أن يقرأ مزيداً عن هذا العابد الزاهد

One of the Khulafa’ asked umar bin dhar about qadr. Umar bin dhar replied:

‘There is something that has preoccupied (me) from (thinking about) qadr. He was asked, ‘And what is that?’

He said: ‘A night whose day is the day of judgement. At this he began to cry and so did the questioner.

*the word بعض can at times mean one.
