    If we seek honor from other than Islam

    Asalamu alaikum rahmatulah wa barakatu

    After the death of Rasulallah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam, Umar ibn al-Khattab r.a. conquered Jerusalem, or rather… he opened Jerusalem for there was no bloodshed, no battle involved. Jerusalem agreed to surrender, but only if the city keys were personally handed to Umar r.a., to which he agreed. So Jerusalem prepared a huge welcoming ceremony for Umar for they knew who he was – a man of justice.

    Umar r.a. was a gigantic man, so much so that if he sat on a horse, his feet would touch the ground. Under his ruling in Madinah, there were distributions of clothes to all Muslims, and Umar r.a. had to take 2 garments instead of 1 and stitch them together, otherwise he wouldn’t be able to cover himself adequately. Even so, there were many stitches and patches on his garment. And for his travel to Jerusalem, Umar r.a. took with him a servant and his camel. Out of fairness, he – this powerful Muslim leader – made a deal with his servant that they would take turns riding the camel.

    Abu Ubaida, a leading Muslim general in charge of the Greater Syria, met them on their way and they came upon a creek. Umar r.a. dismounted from his camel, took off his sandals and placed them over his shoulder, and then led the camel over the creek. Upon seeing this, Abu Ubaida said:

    “O commander of the faithful, are you doing this?
    You have taken off your sandals and placed them on your back and you led the camel through the creek yourself.
    I do not think it will be easy for me to get the people of this country to honor you.”

    . He replied:

    “Verily, we were a disgraceful people and Allah honored us with Islam,
    so if we seek honor from other than Islam, then Allah will humiliate us.”

    My Sect : No Sect

    My Aqeedha : Aqeedha of Sahabas as in http://legacy.quran.com/112

    Just a Muslim with Glorious Quran and (hadith) sunnah as my guide as in verse 41:33 '' And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, "Indeed, I am of the Muslims."
