Laqad sami’tu nahmahu filjannati

Nu’aym bin ‘Abdullah R had accepted Islam before ‘Umar bin Khattab R became a Muslim ‘Umar bin Khattab was a strong opponent of Islam, before accepting Islam.

In the early days of Islam, there were two strong enemies of Islam, ‘Umar bin Khattab and Abu Jahl bin Hisham. Muhammad S used to pray to Allah (God) for the change of heart of either of them.

The Quraysh were very angry because their fellow tribesmen were accepting Islam.

Islam had become a threat to their existence because it advocated a new system, which was based on human rights and social equality. The Quraysh began torturing Muslims. No amount of torture could deviate Muslims from their faith. It greatly frustrated the Quraysh.

Once, the Quraysh chiefs were discussing this situation. ‘Umar bin Khattab was also present there. He decided to kill Muhammad S to get rid of the root of the problem, once for all.

‘Umar bin Khattab had not accepted Islam till then. He took his sword out of its cover and rushed towards Dar (House of) Arqam, where Muhammad S and his Sahabah (Companions) used to live in hiding in the early days of Islam

‘Umar bin Khattab had a reputation of a very fi…. Person. Nu’aym bin ‘Abdullah R met ‘Umar bin Khattab on the way. He had never seen ‘Umar bin Khattab in such anger.

Nu’aym bin ‘Abdullah R asked about his intentions. ‘Umar bin Khattab told him that he is looking for Muhammad S to kill him.  He told Nu’aym bin ‘Abdullah R that it will solve all problems of Quraysh.

Nu’aym bin ‘Abdullah R asked ‘Umar bin Khattab to look into his own family first.

Nu’aym bin ‘Abdullah R told him that Fatimah bint Khattab R, a sister of ‘Umar bin Khattab and her husband Sa’id bin Zayd R had already  accepted Islam.

‘Umar bin Khattab was enraged at this news. He changed his mind and instead of chasing Muhammad S, he rushed to his sister’s house. When ‘Umar bin Khattab reached the house of his brother in-law and his sister, one of their friends Khubab bin Arrat R was reciting Qur-an there. This made him furious.

Khubab bin Arrat R hid somewhere inside the house. Umar bin Khattab began beating up his brother in-law. When his sister Fatimah bint Khattab R tried to save her husband, ‘Umar bin Khattab pushed her also. She got hurt and her forehead began to bleed.

Better sense prevailed upon ‘Umar bin Khattab After seeing her sister hurt. He apologized to them. ‘Umar bin Khattab requested them to repeat the recitation, which he could not properly listen to, because of his raging anger.
 
Fatimah bint Khattab R and her husband Sa’id bin Zayd R recited the verses from Surah Taha (Qur-an 20) once again.
 
Umar bin Khattab went straight to Dar (House of) Arqam, where Muhammad S and other early Muslims were staying.

Umar bin Khattab R became a Muslim there. He became one of the greatest  servant of Islam and become the second Khalifah (Caliph) of Muslims after Abu Bakr R.
