Sa’d reported: Umar ibn Al-Khattab asked permission to see the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, while some women from the Quraish were sitting with him and they were asking for his financial support while raising their voices above his. When asked permission to enter, all of them hurried to veil themselves. The Prophet admitted Umar and he entered while he was smiling. Umar said, “May Allah preserve your smile, O Messenger of Allah. Let my father and mother be sacrificed for you!” The Prophet said, “I am amazed by these women who were with me. As soon as they heard your voice, they hastened to veil themselves.” Umar said, “You have more right that they should be modest for you, O Messenger of Allah.” Then Umar turned to them and he said, “O enemies of your own souls! You are modest for me but not the Messenger of Allah?” The women replied, “Yes, for you are stricter and harsher than the Messenger of Allah.” The Prophet said, “O son of Khattab, by the one in whose hand is my soul, whenever Satan sees you taking a path, then he will take another path.” [Source: Sahih Bukhari 5735; Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Al-Bukhari].
