A NAS A WEEK - 7 DZUL HIJJAH 1436

Umar ibn Al-Khattab reported: A man from the Jews said, “O leader of the believers, there is a verse you recite in your book and had it been revealed to us as Jews we would have taken that day as a celebration.” Umar said, “Which verse is it?” The Jew said, “Today I have completed your religion for you, perfect My favor upon you, and have chosen Islam as your religion.” (5:3) Umar said, “I know the day and place in which this verse was revealed to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. It was while he was standing on the day of Arafat on Friday.” [Source: Sahih Bukhari 45, Sahih Muslim 3017; Grade: Muttafaqun Alayhi (authenticity agreed upon) according to Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
