Standard

Abdullah Ibn Umar (R) said; “whenever Umar forbade the people from something, he would enter upon his own family and he would say to them, ‘I have forbidden the people from such and such. The people are watching you just as birds would watch a piece of meat. If you break (the rule), they will also break it. If you fear (to break the rule), they will also fear. If any one of you were brought to me having committed the offence that I have forbidden the people from, I will Multiply his own punishment because of his closeness to me. Whoever wishes let him dare and whoever wishes let him refrain.”
