`Umar ibn al-Khattāb (c. 581 – 644), sometimes referred by Sunni Muslims as `Umar al-Farūq (Umar the Distinguisher (between Truth and Falsehood)) was from the Banu Adi clan of the Quraysh tribe. He was a companion of the Islamic prophet Muhammad and became the second Sunni Caliph (634 – 644) following the death of Abu Bakr, the first Caliph.

All `Umar's relatives of the same generation were also Sahaba and his daughter Hafsa bint Umar was a Mother of the Believers. His son was also an important Sahaba, and his grandsons were Salaf.
