Jabir Ibn Abdillah reported that Prophet Muhammad (s.) said:“I entered paradise and found myself at a palace of gold. I asked: “To whom does it belong?” I was answered: “It belongs to a man of the Quraish.” O son of Khattab, nothing prevented me from entering the palace except your jealousy.” Umar said: “Should I be jealous because of you, O Messenger of God?” [Sahih-ul-Bukhari, Hadith 6621]
حدثنا عمرو بن علي حدثنا معتمر بن سليمان حدثنا عبيد الله بن عمر عن محمد بن المنكدر عن جابر بن عبد الله قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم دخلت الجنة فإذا أنا بقصر من ذهب فقلت لمن هذا فقالوا لرجل من قريش فما منعني أن أدخله يا ابن الخطاب إلا ما أعلم من غيرتك قال وعليك أغار يا رسول الله
Fairy tales like these were made after the death of Umar and were unknown during his lifetime. Instead of paradise, Umar expected fire.
Ibn Abi Mulaikah reported that Miswar Ibn Makhramah said: “When Umar was injured, he mourned his suffering. Then Abdullah Ibn Abbas said to him as if he cared about him: “O Commander of the Believers, even if you did, you have accompanied the Messenger of God and kept his company. Then you left him while he was well pleased with you. Then you accompanied Abu Bakr and kept him company in a manner that pleased him. Afterwards, you left him while he was well pleased with you. Afterwards you accompanied them and kept their company pleasingly, and when you leave them, you leave them while they are pleased with you.” Umar said: “As for your mention of the companionship of the Messenger of God and his favor, it is a favor from God that He bestowed on me, and as for your mention of the companionship of Abu Bakr and his favor, it is a favor from God that He bestowed on me, and as for what you see me worrying about, it is because of you and your companions. By God, if I had an earth full of gold, I would redeem myself with it from the punishment of God before I meet Him.” [Sahih-ul-Bukhari, Hadith 3489]
حدثنا الصلت بن محمد حدثنا إسماعيل بن إبراهيم حدثنا أيوب عن ابن أبي مليكة عن المسور بن مخرمة قال لما طعن عمر جعل يألم فقال له ابن عباس وكأنه يجزعه يا أمير المؤمنين ولئن كان ذاك لقد صحبت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فأحسنت صحبته ثم فارقته وهو عنك راض ثم صحبت أبا بكر فأحسنت صحبته ثم فارقته وهو عنك راض ثم صحبت صحبتهم فأحسنت صحبتهم ولئن فارقتهم لتفارقنهم وهم عنك راضون قال أما ما ذكرت من صحبة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ورضاه فإنما ذاك من من الله تعالى من به علي وأما ما ذكرت من صحبة أبي بكر ورضاه فإنما ذاك من من الله جل ذكره من به علي وأما ما ترى من جزعي فهو من أجلك وأجل أصحابك والله لو أن لي طلاع الأرض ذهبا لافتديت به من عذاب الله عز وجل قبل أن أراه
Appropriately, the Qur’an says: “From among those who disbelieve and die as disbelievers, an earth full of gold will never be accepted, even if they wanted to redeem themselves with it. These have a painful punishment and nobody to help them.” [Al Imran 3:91]
