Umar's fear

`Umar bin Khattab he was so firm in his practice of Islam that he usually could sense what was right or wrong before the Prophet (pbuh) had informed others of it. He used to say to his friends: If a mule stumbles near the Euphrates River, I fear being questioned by Allah as to why I had not paved the road for it.
