So who was Umar II anyway?

​As Salaam Alaikum

I hope you are well.

A lot of readers have been asking me who is this ʿUmar II​ that I am writing about. Why did I choose to write a 300+ page book about an Umayyad ruler?

To help answer this question, I put together a brief introduction to ʿUmar II​ ​ focused on his lineage and upbringing. This introduction is lifted directly from my latest book, so if you enjoy this, you are going to love the full book!

I hope this will give you a glimpse into the life of this amazing historical figure who has always been a role model of mine.

Was Salaam
