Umar (R.A) in The 100

"It may occasion some surprise that Umar - a figure virtually unknown in the West- has been ranked higher than such famous men as Charlemagne and Julius Caesar. However, the conquests made by the Arabs under Umar, taking into account both their size and their duration, are substantially more important than those of either Caesar or Charlemagne.”
