Full talk: The Prophet’s ﷺ Triumph over Hearts

When the conquest of Makkah took place, Ikrimah (the son of Abu Jahl) fled from the city due to his enmity towards the Muslims in the past. He had lost everything and thus decided to travel to another land across the Red Sea in order to escape, out of fear of what may be done to him.

Whilst on his journey, the ship he had boarded was caught in a storm and those who were with him exclaimed that they should sincerely pray for salvation. Ikrimah vowed to Allah that if he survived the storm, he would return to Makkah and embrace Islam.

Find out how the enmity of Ikrimah, whose father is condemned in the Quran, lead him to realise the truth of the Prophet ﷺ and embrace Islam.
