Difficulty: 0

Shortly after 'Umar bin Al-Khattab embraced Islam,

He asked the Prophet (Peace be upon him): 'Aren't we on the right path ?

The Prophet (Peace be upon him) answered: 'Of course we are.

Umar, therefore, asked the Prophet (Peace be upon him) 'Why we then had to conduct clandestine activism,

I swear by Allh Who has sent you with the Truth, that we will leave our concealment and proclaim our noble cause publicly.

They then went out in two groups, Hamzah leading one and Umar the other,

and the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was among them.

They headed for the Mosque in broad daylight.

when the polytheists of Quraish saw them, their faces went pale and got incredibly depressed and resentful.

In fact, the conversion of Umar and Hamzah created a great deal of stir in Makkah,

they felt dread and uneasiness,

In return, Muslims felt pride and honor.

It was narrated that , "When Umar embraced Islam, he asked Who amongst the Quraish is the biggest gossip ?

They told him "Jamil bin Ma'mar"

Umar went to him and told him that he became Muslim,

Jamil ran and screamed on the top of his voice

He said that Omar bin Al-Khattab had gone saba (mad),

and Umar was behind him and said," he is lying, rather I have become Muslim. "

So they all came and started fighting with Umar.

and he fought all of them until they overcame him and he got tired,

And he said to them, if the number of Muslims were three hundred, they would not have left Makkah for them.

Ibn Ishaq narrated on the authority of 'Umar (May Allah be pleased), "When I embraced Islam,

I remembered the archenemy of Muhammad (Peace be upon him), i.e. Abu Jahl.

I set out, and knocked at his door.

When he came out to see me, I told him directly that I had embraced Islam.

He immediately slammed the door repulsively denouncing my move as infamous and my face as ugly."

The situation in Mecca changed after Al-Farouque. (Umar) converted to Islam.

It was only after 'Umar's conversion, that Muslims started to proclaim their Call,

assemble around and circumambulate the Sacred House freely.

Ibn Mas'ud said: We have been strengthened a lot since 'Umar embraced Islam.

After the conversion of these two powerful heroes, Hamzah bin 'Abdul-Muttalib and 'Umar bin Al-Khattab,

Quraish decided to send another envoy to the Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.

I wonder what the Quraish envoy will offer to Muhammad ?
