Gibbon on Hadhrat Umarra

His food consisted of barely bread or dates; his drink was water; he preached in a gown that was torn or tattered in twelve places; and a Persian satrap, who paid his homage to the conqueror, found him asleep among the beggars on the steps of the mosch of Madina.
(Gibbon, Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, vol V, p. 400, 1890)
