Umar on Gratitude: O Allah, make us among the few who are grateful to you

Al-Qurtubi reported: Umar ibn Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, heard a man saying, “O Allah, make me among the few.” Umar said, “What is this supplication?” The man said, “I refer to the saying of Allah the Exalted: And few of my servants are grateful.” (34:13) Umar said, “All of the people know better than you, O Umar!”

عن القرطبي وَسَمِعَ عُمَرُ بْنُ الْخَطَّابِ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى عَنْهُ رَجُلًا يَقُولُ اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي مِنَ الْقَلِيلِ فَقَالَ عُمَرُ مَا هَذَا الدُّعَاءُ فَقَالَ الرَّجُل أَرَدْتُ قَوْلَهُ تَعَالَى وَقَلِيلٌ مِنْ عِبَادِيَ الشَّكُورُ فَقَالَ عُمَرُ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ كُلُّ النَّاسِ أَعْلَمُ مِنْكَ يَا عُمَرُ
