Fatimah bin Khattab
R was a sister of ‘Umar bin Khattab R.

‘Umar bin Khattab
R the second Khalifah (Caliph) of Muslims.

‘Umar bin Khattab R was a strong opponent of Islam, before he converted to Islam.

‘Umar
bin Khattab
R even wanted to kill Muhammad S to finish Islam, once for all.

He took out his sword and rushed towards Dar Arqam (House of Arqam
R) where Muhammad
S and his Sahabah (Companions) used to meet in the early days of Islam.

On the way, ‘Umar bin Khattab
R met Na’yim bin ‘Abdullah R.

Na’yim bin ‘Abdullah
R found out that ‘Umar bin Khattab R is going to physically hurt Muhammad S.

He told ‘Umar bin Khattab
R that his own sister Fatimah bint Khattab R and her husband Sa’id bin Zayd R had also accepted Islam.

‘Umar bin Khattab
R was outraged at this news.

In a fit of anger, he went to the house of Sa’id bin Zayd R, to take care of his sister and brother in-law first.

When ‘Umar bin
Khattab
R reached there, both Sa’id bin Zayd
R and his wife Fatimah R were reciting Qur-an.

They were reciting Surah al Hadid Qur-an 57.

Umar bin
Khattab
R heard their recitation.

Umar bin
Khattab
R entered their house and beat up Sa’id bin Zayd R badly.

Umar bin
Khattab
R also hit his sister Fatimah
R, when she tried to save her husband Sa’id bin Zayd R.
Umar bin Khattab R tried to force Sa’id bin Zayd R and Fatimah R to quit their new religion Islam, and return to the age old religion of their ancestors.

His merciless beatings did not yield any results.

When ‘‘Umar bin
Khattab R got tired of beating them, his curiosity took over. He asked them to recite those strange verses back to him, which he heard while entering their house.


Sa’id
bin Zayd
R and Fatimah bint Khattab R recited those beautiful verses from Qur-an again. It resulted in a total change of heart of ‘Umar bin Khattab R.

He was awed by the truth in the words of Allah (God).

Umar bin
Khattab
R went straight to Dar Arqam (House of Arqam R) and converted to Islam immediately.


Sa’id
bin Zayd
R and his wife Fatimah R were instrumental in the conversion of ‘Umar bin Khattab R who became one of the great followers of Islam.

Sa’id
bin Zayd
R participated in all the battles fought for the cause of Islam.

He could not participate in the battle of Badr because
Muhammad S had sent him on some mission.
