'As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu'.

I Cannot Obey Allah in public and Disobey Him in Private!”

Narrated Abdullah ibn Zayd ibn Aslam, from his father, from his grandfather, who said:-

When I was accompanying `Umar ibn al-Khattab (radi Allahu ‘anhu) on his patrol of Madinah at night, he felt tired, so he leant against a wall.

It was the middle of the night, and (we heard) a woman say to her daughter:-

“O my daughter, get up and mix that milk with some water.”

The girl answered:-

'O Mother~ did you not hear the decree of Amir al-Mu’minin today?”

The mother answered:-

“What was that?”

The girl said:-

'He ordered someone to announce in a loud voice that milk should not be mixed with water.'

The mother then said:-

'Get up and mix the milk with water;

you are in a place where `Umar

cannot see you.'

The girl told her mother:-

'I cannot obey Allah in Public

and Disobey Him in Private.”

'Umar (radi Allahu ‘anhu) heard this,

and told me:-

“O Aslam, go to that place and see who that girl is, and to whom she was speaking, and whether she has a husband.”

So I went to that place, and I saw that she was unmarried, the other woman was her mother, and neither of them had a husband.

I came to `Umar (radi Allahu ‘anhu) and told him what I had found out.

He called his sons together, and said to them:-

'Do any of you need a wife,

so I can arrange the marriage for you?

'If I had the desire to get married,

I would have been the first one to

marry this young woman.'

`Abdullah said:- “I have a wife.

`Abd al-Rahman said:- “I have a wife'

`Asim said:-

I do not have a wife,so let me marry her.”

So `Umar arranged for her to be married to `Asim.

She gave him a daughter,

who grew up to be

the Mother of Umar ibn `Abd al-`Aziz (rahimahullah).

"So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom, shall see it.
And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom, shall see it.”
['Quran'99- Al-Zalzalah: 7-8]
