The Second Pious Caliph (RA)

Hazrat Umar (RA) is sitting. The mood is pensive.

"What is the matter Hazrat?"

"I correct everybody when they go astray. Who will correct me when I go astray? People are so much in awe of me they do not face me. How will I get corrected?"

A Companion (RA): "I will correct you."
Hazrat Umar (RA): "And if I do not listen to you?"
The Companion (RA): "Then I shall see you with my sword."

This answer made Hazrat Umar (RA) very cheerful.
