We are given victory due to the smallness of our sin

A messenger from one of the battles came to Ummar ibn alKhattab(when he was khalifa) and gave him the good news of the victory of the Muslims.

So Ummar asked him, “When did the fighting begin?”
The man said, “Before the forenoon(duhaa’).”

Ummar then asked , “When was the victory?”
So they said, “Before maghreb(sunset).”

So Ummar (May Allah be pleased with him) wept so much till his beard was wet. The people said, “O ameer almu’mineen! We give you the good news of victory and you weep?”

He (radiyaAllahu anhu) said, “By Allah, truly falsehood cannot resist before the truth for this long period(of duhaa’ till maghreb) except because of a sin you committed or because of a sin I committed.”

He added, “We are a ummah who are not given victory due to numbers and preparation but we are given victory due to the smallness of our sin and the great amount of sinning of the enemy, so if the sins (from both sides, the camp of Islam and the camp of kufr) are equal (same), they will be given victory over us with their numbers and preparation.”
