A Beutiful Hadith…


Saheeh Muslim mentions a story where some men came to question Umar ibn Al-Khattaab during his khilaafah about the leadership of Makkah, 
they asked, “Who… do you use to govern Makkah?”
He said, “Ibn Abzaa.” They asked, “And who is Ibn Abzaa?” Umar replied, 
“A freed slave from those we freed.” They remarked, “You left a freed slave in charge of the people of the Valley (the noble tribes of the Quraysh)!?!?” 
So he answered them, “Verily he is a reader of the Book of Allah and is knowledgeable about the obligations of the Muslims. Haven’t you heard… 
the statement of your Messenger: “Verily Allah raises some people by this Book and lowers others by it.”
