Had there been a nabi after me, it would be ‘Umar ibn al Khattab

 

لو كان بعدي نبي لكان عمر بن الخطاب

Had there been a nabi after me, it would be ‘Umar ibn al Khattab.

 

Al Albani classified it sahih. Al Tirmidhi narrated it with a Hassan isnad.[1]

 

There is no objection in the hadith. Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam had announced:

 

لو كنت آمرا أحدا أن يسجد لأحد لأمرت المرأة أن تسجد لزوجها

If I commanded anyone to prostrate before anyone, I would have commanded a woman to prostrate to her husband.

 

These types of ahadith are very problematic to the ignorant who object at how could Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam order a woman to prostrate to her husband, disregarding the hypothetical IF. Similar is this hadith. The hadith affirms Sayyidina ‘Umar’s radiya Llahu ‘anhu virtue, not his nubuwwah.

But the Rawafid:

مَا ضَرَبُوْهُ لَكَ إِلَّا جَدَلًا بَلْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ خَصِمُوْنَ

They did not present the comparison except for [mere] argument. But, [in fact], they are a people prone to dispute.[2]
