Umar Had Control Of The Four Elements



And indeed, the four elements (fire, water, earth & air) obeyed him (Umar), for he wrote to Egypt's Nile river, and it reached him that his custom is that he only pay for a girl who is given to him, so God cut off from his book this reprehensible habit. ...And the air when it carried his voice to Sariya a mast and the dust when the earth shook and he hit it with a whip, so it calmed down and the fire when he informed someone to save his house as it was burning.
