Historically, his name is first mentioned in the Book of Genesis, Chapter 36, verse 11. Nowadays, his name is rarely used by most Jews, but it continues to be a popular name among Temani Jews and is common in many countries.

Co-produced by Qatar TV, the series is based on the life of Omar ibn Al-Khattab, the second Caliph of Islam, and depicts his life from 18 years old until the moments of his death. The series had to face large controversy due to its depiction of Omar, Abu Bakr, Uthman and Ali, the four Rashidun Caliphs, along with other characters, who some Muslims believe should not be depicted, much like the Prophet Mohammad. The series consists of 30 episodes and was originally aired in the month of Ramadan since July 20, 2012.
