An example of his firasa رضي الله عنه 

وأثر عمر هذا أورده ابن كثير في مسند الفاروق بإسناد ابن خزيمة من طريق حميد عن أنس: أن عمر رضي الله عنه أُتِيَ بشباب قد حلَّ عليه القطع، فأمر بقطعه، فجعل يقول: يا ويله، ما سرقت قط قبلها! فقال عمر: كذبت ورب عمر، ما أسلم الله عبدا عند أول ذنب ـ ثم قال ابن كثير: إسناده صحيح
Anas b. Mālik رضي الله عنه reports:
A young man who had stolen was brought to ʿUmar رضي الله عنه (for punishment). He said, “By Allāh I have never stolen before this time.” So ʿUmar رضي الله عنه responded, “You lie, Allāh would not (or does not) surrender a servant of His on the first sin.”

Abū Dāwūd, Al-Zuhd article 56, and others. Graded ṣaḥīh by Ibn Kathīr and others.
