Abu Al-Hasan ibn Battaal (a scholar) said: “The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was happy when people entered into Islam, and he used to supplicate for those he hoped would repent. Thus, many people for whom the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi  wa sallam, prayed for guidance becameMuslims.”

Abdullaah ibn ‘Abbaas (a Companion; the Prophet’s cousin) narrated that the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said

O Allah,strengthen Islam by the most beloved of these two men to You; Abu Jahl, or ‘Umar ibn Al-Khattaab.” He (Ibn ‘Abbaas) then said that ‘Umar was the more beloved of the two to Allah.This was in the beginning, and then after that he specified ‘Umar with the supplication. ‘Aa’ishah (the wife of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) narrated that the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “O Allah, strengthen Islam by ‘Umar ibn Al-Khattaab specifically.” ‘Umar ibn Al-Khattaab became Muslim after the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, prayed for him, even though many people had given up hope that he would accept Islam. Some of them had even said: “’Umar will not become Muslim until his donkey becomes Muslim.” Thus, the supplication of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, for ‘Umar ibn Al-Khattaab had a great effect in his conversion toIslam.
