About this episode

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi continues his lecture on the conquest of Mecca and he discusses some major conversions to Islam that took place in this time.

We begin with the conversion of the uncle of the Prophet ﷺ, Abbas. When did he convert to Islam? This is a topic of a lot of discussion and controversy. Some opinions have been brought to the fore by the Shaykh and deserve a fair listen.

The next conversions to be discussed are that of Abu Sufyan ibn Al Harith ibn Abdul Muttalib who was the first cousin of the Prophet ﷺ and another cousin of the Prophet ﷺ named Abdullah ibn Umayyah ibn Mughira. The Prophet ﷺ accepts their conversion after a lot of compelling and pleading as they had not supported or shared the ideas and beliefs of the Prophet ﷺ with him many a time in the past despite being cousins.

The next magnanimous story of conversion is that of  Abu Sufyan ibn Harb ibn Umayyah, the chieftain of the Quraysh. What a story this is! The sheer circumstances under which this magical and seemingly impossible event transpired is a lesson in itself that needs to be imbibed and inculcated. Please listen intently and be amazed by the Qadr of Allah.
