How they prayed…

How they prayed: UMAR (may Allah be pleased with him) sayings

From the lives of our pious predecessors:

UMAR (may Allah be pleased with him) became unconscious after he was stabbed, and it was said: “Nothing would wake him up except the call to prayer, if he is still alive.”

They said to him, “The prayer has finished, O Leader of the Believers!”

He woke up and said, “The prayer, by Allah! Verily, there is no share in Islam for whoever abandons the prayer.” He performed the prayer while his wound was bleeding.
