OmaricJudgement: A Dispute Between a Muslim and a Jew.

There was a hypocrite named Bishor. He involved in a dispute with a land with some Jew. The Jew said to him, ‘Let us go to Muhammad for the settlement.’

But Bishor was not agreed with this proposal. He said, ‘No, but we have to go Kab ibn Ashraf.’

This Kab was one of the leaders of Jews and a difficult enemy of Muslims and Muhammad. Therefore, externally this subject was too surprising that the Jew likes the settlement of Muhammad instead his own leader, but Bishor, who himself known as Muslims interested for the settlement of the Jews Leader instead of Muhammad. Though the Jew and Bishor both knew that what Muhammad will settle will be right- no doubt of bias to someone. But as the Jew was based on justice, so he has much faith on Muhammad rather than his own leader. On the other hand, Bishor was on unjust, so he knew clearly that the settlement of Muhammad will go against him though he is a Muslim.

They went to Kab. And hearing all, his proposal goes in favour of the Jew. But Bishor rejects the settlement. And after a long quarrel they decided to resolve the issue through Muhammad.

They came to Muhammad. And Muhammad searches the details of the case. It was proved through the evidence that the Jew is right. So he refused Bishor and ordered on the behalf of Jew.

Bishor was unwilling to accept this settlement. So he proposed a new proposal to the Jew. He said, ‘Let us go to Omar ibn Khattab. Surely I will agree to the settlement what he proposes.’
It was Bishors assumption that as Omar was too difficult to the disbelievers, so he will not on the Jewish side of his business.

They two came to the door of Omar. He was in his home. After describing the whole event the Jew said at the end, ‘Rasulallah also judge this case, but this man not agreed with that. So we come to you.’
Omar said, ‘O Bishor is that true?’
Bishor admitted. Then Omar said to them, ‘Wait a bit, I am coming soon.’

Omar enter into his home very quickly and came out with a open sword in his hand. Seeing this, faces of the two became pale. Omar said, ‘The person, who is not willing to accept the judge of the messenger of Allah, his judgement will be this.’ With one hit of the sword, Omar makes Bishor into two pieces.

When this event disclosed to Medina, the Jews rebuked the Muslims. They said, ‘What type of Muslim you are, to whom you respect as the messenger of Allah and claim yourself as his follower, yet you do not accept  his settlement. On the other hand, look at us, when we ordered to kill each other to remove our sins, we obey that type of difficult order. And thus our 70 (seventy) men get killed. Now we see, if such an order imposed on you, surely you will turn away.’
Hearing this, a Muslim commented, ‘That state may for the case of hypocrites, not for the true Muslims. And by God, we did not encounter any serious examination.’

The relatives of Bishor filed a case against Omar in the court of Muhammad. Their saying were-‘Omar killed a Muslim without any documents accomplished by Shariah. And killing a Muslim is a serious crime.’
Besides this, to prove Bishor as a pure Muslim, they submit a lots explanation of his words and deeds.

Muhammad too dissatisfied with the settlement of Omar. He said, ‘I did not think that Omar ever dare to murder any devotee Muslim.’

Then Allah revel the real significance of the event and cleaned Omar from the charge of Murder. Qur’an says- But the hypocrites say, "We have believed in Allah and in the Messenger, and we obey"; then a party of them turns away after that. And those are not believers. And when they are called to (the words of) Allah and His Messenger to judge between them, at once a party of them turns aside (in refusal). But if the right is theirs, they come to him in prompt obedience. Is there disease in their hearts? Or have they doubted? Or do they fear that Allah will be unjust to them, or His Messenger? Rather, it is they who are the wrongdoers. The only statement of the (true) believers when they are called to Allah and His Messenger to judge between them is that they say, "We hear and we obey." And those are the successful.(24:47-51)

O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best (way) and best in result. Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you and what was revealed before you? They wish to refer legislation to Taghut, while they were commanded to reject it; and Satan wishes to lead them far astray. And when it is said to them, "Come to what Allah has revealed and to the Messenger," you see the hypocrites turning away from you in aversion. So how (will it be) when disaster strikes them because of what their hands have put forth and then they come to you swearing by Allah, "We intended nothing but good conduct and accommodation."

Those are the ones of whom Allah knows what is in their hearts, so turn away from them but admonish them and speak to them a far-reaching word. And We did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by permission of Allah. And if, when they wronged themselves, they had come to you and asked forgiveness of Allah and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Accepting of repentance and Merciful. But no, by your Lord, they will not (truly) believe until they make you judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in (full, willing) submission. And if We had decreed upon them, "Kill yourselves" or "Leave your homes," they would not have done it, except for a few of them. But if they had done what they were instructed, it would have been better for them and a firmer position (for them in faith). And then We would have given them from Us a great reward. And We would have guided them to a straight path.(4:59-68)
