Hazrat Umar the second caliph of Islam was born at Mecca in 580 A.D. His date of birth is not confirm yet approximately he was ten years younger from prophet Muhammad Peace be upon him. He belongs to Adi clan of Quraish which was one of the ten clans of Quraish in Mecca. Quraish is a name of a tribe.
He was a merchant and one of the richest merchants of Mecca. First he was a great enemy of Islam. Later on he embraced Islam because of the intellectual logics of Islam in his sister's home.
In 622 A.D the migration for Muslims were made compulsory so Omar (May God please with him) also migrated to Medina with other Muslims. He then remained a close companion of Prophet (peace be upon him) throughout the life of Prophet. After the death of the prophet (peace be upon him) he remained in the parliament of Muslims and a close consultant to the first caliph of Islam Abu Bakr(may God please with him).
The first caliph at the time of the death nominated Omar (May God please with him). So Omar became the second caliph of Islam. He ruled justly and honestly for more than 10 years. It was the golden era of Islamic history. Omar was blessed with the glad tidings of heaven in his worldly life by the prophet (Peace be upon him).
Many conquests were made during the rule of Omar and more than 26,00000 square kilometre area was under his rule but there was not a single act of injustice in the whole area.
It is very difficult to give a brief account on the life of the second caliph of Islam in this short space available. We just close our discussion by telling that Omar was martyred by a Persian who stabbed Omar with the dagger he made for this purpose. That wound became fatal and Omar went to heaven in November 644 A.D.
thanked the writer.

Well narrated,could be very well add that most people declare Alexander is the greatest general in history,while his control or kingdom was diminished within 5 years of his death,also the total areas he controlled was way less that Hazrat Umar(R A),there is no comparison in the greatness of Hazrat Umar(R A) to Allexander.
