Fatwa Date : Shawwaal

Question
Salams. Can you please give
me the biography of Abdullah
bin umar? Who was he and
what authority in Islam?
jazak Allah khair.
Answer
All perfect praise be to
Allaah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship
except Allaah, and that
Muhammad , is His slave and
Messenger.
‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Umar ibn Al-
Khattaab ibn ‘Abdul ‘Uzza
Abu Abdur-Rahmaan Al-
Qurashi Al-‘Adawi Al-Makki,
the Meccan and later the
Madenite, was among the
learned Companions. He
converted to Islam at a very
young age and then migrated
with his father before
reaching the age of puberty.
He was deemed too young to
fight during the Battle of
Uhud, so his first battle was
Al-Khandaq (the Trench). He
was among those who
pledged allegiance to the
Prophet , under the tree. His
mother was Zaynab bint
Math‘oon.
He related much knowledge
from the Prophet , and from
his father 'Umar, Abu Bakr
and ‘Uthmaan, as well as
from many senior
Companions .
Reputable Successors
(Taabi‘oon), such as Sa‘eed
ibn Al-Musayyib, Thaabit Al-
Bunaani, Taawoos, Az-Zuhri,
Muhammad ibn Seereen,
Naafi‘ (his servant),
Mujaahid, and others, were
among those who related
from him.
‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Umar ibn Al-
Khattaab was known for his
asceticism, virtuousness,
generosity, spending in
Allaah's cause, knowledge
and piety, and for his strong
desire to exemplify the
Prophet , and follow his
tracks in even the most
subtle matters. He was also
known for abundant worship,
such as praying at night and
fasting during the day, and
performing Hajj every year.
This is a brief overview
about his life, his status in
Islam and his virtues.
Allaah Knows best.
