Hadhrat Umar r.a was the first person to suggest the compiling of the Qur'an. Deeply affected by the numerous huffaz and qurraa who were martyred in the battle of Yamamah, Hadhrat Umar suggested to Hadhrat Abu Bakr r.a that "Whoever has any portion of the Qur'an written should bring it forward and thereafter the Qur'an be compiled. The Qur'an has not yet been compiled, and if wars are to continue in this manner and the remaining huffaz are martyred a serious problem will arise."
