Question: Brothers! Can Anyone Provide The Original Arabic Version of This narration Of Umar Bin Al-Khataab in Arabic? Salam Guys!

I need the following quote of Umar bin Al-Khataab (RA) in Arabic:-

It is said that Umar promised to strike the head of any man who would say that Muhammad died. Umar said: "He has not died but rather he has gone to his lord just as Moses went, remaining absent from his people for forty nights after which he has returned to them. By Allah, the messenger of Allah will indeed return just as Moses returned (to his people) and he will cut off the hands and legs of those men who claimed he has died."[38] Abu Bakr then publicly spoke to the community in the mosque, saying: "Whoever worshiped Muhammad, let them know that Muhammad has died, and whoever worshiped Allah, let them know that Allah is alive and never dies." I found the English version here:-


But I Desperately Need The Original Arabic Version.

    Your english book refers to As-seerah An-Nabawiyyah, by Abu Shohbah (2/594) which you can find in Arabic here. It is also quoted in many other works of seerah.
