The Prophet’s ﷺ Triumph over Hearts
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on Friday 16th March 2018 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)
The Prophet ﷺ displayed the perfect example of showing softness to his bitterest enemies, inclining most of them to eventually embrace Islam. His character was not one of harshness and retaliation, but rather one of leniency and forgiveness. Those staunch enemies of Islam, whom Allah had revealed verses of the Quran condemning them, had their own families embracing Islam. This showed that over time many realised the truth of his message and could not fault his character.
This talk is replete with examples of many enemies of the Prophet ﷺ either embracing Islam themselves or their families later embracing; some even setting out with the intention of killing the Prophet ﷺ. The transformation of these individuals and their devotion to the Prophet ﷺ after embracing is also explained.
Find out how the Prophet ﷺ won over the hearts of many and remained true to his word throughout his life.
