Umar bin Khattab became the Khalifah after Abu Bakr. He was known for being just and dealing with people justly, whether they were Muslims or non-Muslims.
The Muslim empire had grown vastly in a short time and has spread throughout the lands. The duty fell upon the Muslim leaders to make sure that the rights and well-being of the people were respected. Umar would try extra hard because he knew that he would need to answer to Allah if he didn't look after the people properly.
Some nights, Umar would wander around the streets to make sure that everyone was happy and there were no problems in his city. He would make sure that no one was left hungry because of him.
One day, as he was patrolling the streets, he heard a woman who was complaining about Umar. Her children were hungry and were crying because of this. Umar was very worried about this as it was his job to make sure than no one was left hungry.
He rushed to the government funds and put a sack of flour and other provisions on his back and carried it to the woman. He cooked the food with his own hands and fed all her children, as the woman watched with surprise.
When the children had eaten and went to sleep, Umar asked the women if there was any other problems. She replied that she was very happy and asked, “Who are you?” Umar replied that I am the same Umar you had been unhappy with earlier today. She thanked Umar for his kindness and made dua for him.
