Islam is a living, breathing and truly eternal ‘Way of Life’. A system that empowers us to live the ‘highest’ and ‘best’ version of our earthly existences on this planet in the most efficient, beneficial and timely way possible.
And since the currency of time on earth is limited, Islam places a strong emphasis on how we can best utilize it.
This book evaluates 15 powerful Productivity principles and lessons derived from the life of ʿUmar bin ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz, commonly known as ʿUmar II, the 8th Umayyad Caliph.
Born in Medina in 682, he was the matrilineal great-grandson of Islam’s 2nd Caliph ʿUmar bin Al-Khaṭṭāb. His immensely transformational rule as Caliph lasted from 717 until his death in 720.
Despite his short reign, ʿUmar II accomplished major milestones and brought about lasting change in the entire Muslim world through his robust manner of governance. He made solid reforms in provincial administration, military strategy, education, taxation, fair dispensation of charity, and public works.
His rule saw developments for construction of canals, roads, rest houses for travelers and medical dispensaries while expanding special programs for orphans and the destitute.
One of his biggest accolades included ordering the first official collection of the Prophetic Hadiths in order to preserve them in a diligent and systematized manner so they do not get lost.

“Through a deep analysis of ʿUmar life, the author Shaykh Ismail Kamdar brings to light various life-changing principles that ʿUmar implemented. ʿUmar II is an excellent role model for each of these principles, which Ismail has broken down and discussed in detail throughout the book.”
