Safwan bin Omaiyah and Fudalah bin ‘Umair Embracing Islam
in the same context of magnanimity peculiar to muhammad [pbuh], two chiefs of quraish were pardoned once they had embraced islam. they were safwan bin omaiyah and fudalah bin ‘umair. the latter had attempted to assassinate the prophet [pbuh] while circumambulating in the holy sanctuary. the prophet’s matchless tolerance and broad-mindedness instigated by his mission as ‘a mercy to all people’, converted a terrible hypocrite into a faithful devout believer.
