Anxiety and Solicitude of ‘Umar ibn ‘Abdul ‘Aziz
Umar ibn Salih al-Azdi related: “I heard an old man from the people of Sham saying: “‘Umar ibn ‘Abdul ‘Aziz entrusted his servant with a bag (in which perfume and such alike are stored). Then when he passed away his servant was approached to claim the bag of ‘Umar. However, the servant refused handing it to them and said: “There is no good in it for you.” The case was presented to Yazid ibn ‘Abdul Malik so he ordered to bring him the bag and he called the members of Bani Umayyah to witness opening the bag. When everyone gathered he said: “We have found that the best person amongst you (‘Umar ibn ‘Abdul ‘Aziz) left behind a bag as a trust.” When they opened the bag they found in it pieces of ruined garments he used to wear at night.”
