'Umar's Migration To Madina.

Al Salamu 'Alaykum.
When Hadrat 'Umar ibn al Khattab(ra) was ready to migrate (from Makka to Madina) he put on his sword(top sword in pic) and slung his bow over his shoulder keeping one of his arrows in his hand, and he put his staff in his waist belt. Then he made his way towards the Ka'bah while some of the Quraish were sitting nearby. Then 'Umar began making tawaaf around the Ka'bah seven times. After finishing tawaaf, he courageously made prayer at the station of Ibraheem. 

Then he stood at their place of gathering and said: "Your faces have become ugly (to me), may Allah rub your noses in dirt. Whoever wishes that his mother weep over him, his children become orphans and his wife a widow then let him meet me (follow me) outside of this valley (the city of Mecca)." 

Ali(ra) said: "No one followed him except a group of the very weak who he recognized as such so he continued on to his destination."

Wa Salam.
