No Comparison

At the end of the battle of Uhud, even though the Muslims suffered a loss, Umar Ibn Al-Khattab said to the leader of the Meccan army: "there is no comparison. Our slain are in Paradise and your slain are in Hell."

Let Palestine be in our prayers.

Yes, my apologies. I'm sure this quote is cited in many sources, but I got it from a book called "Umar Ibn Al-Khattab: His Life and Times" by Dr. Ali Muhammad as-Sallabi.

Hope that helps.
