5 forgiveness stories of Prophet Muhammad

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was probably the most forgiving person ever lived on Earth. Here are some 5 forgiveness stories of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.

In fact, Allah Himself has said in the Holy Quran: We have sent you ˹O Prophet˺ only as a mercy for the whole world. – Al-Anbya 21:107

Thumama Ibn Uthal

Thumama Ibn Uthal was amongst the Arabs leaders of Banu Hanifah and Yammama. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ sent him a letter inviting him to accept Islam; in response he got angry and intended to kill the prophet.

He also killed a group of Sahaba. Later, he was caught by Muslims and he was tied in Masjid al-Nabawi. During his imprisonment, Prophet Muhammad ﷺensured that he is treated well. He requested Prophet Muhammad ﷺ  to release him for money or forgive him.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ instructed to release him unconditionally which inspired Thumama that he accepted Islam. He later performed Umrah and became the first Muslim to recite Talbiyah around the Holy Kaaba.

Wahshi Ibn Harb

The second forgiveness story of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is about Wahshi Ibn Harb.

Hamza Ibn Abi Talib رضي الله عنه, the beloved uncle of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was killed by Wahshi Ibn Harb during the battle of Uhud.

It proved to be a great setback as he was a great supporter of Muslims and Islam. This killing brought great sorrow and pain for Prophet Muhammad ﷺ but still, he forgave him after Wahshi accepted Islam.

Hind Bint Utbah

Another very strong opponent of Islam and Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was Hind Bint Utbah who was always busy in provoking Quraish to harm the Muslims. She was the wife of Abu Sufyan Ibn Harb who himself was the dire opponent of Muslims.

Despite all her ill doings, she was also forgiven by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ after the conquest of Makkah and after she accepted Islam.

Abu Sufyan Ibn Harb

The second forgiveness story of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is about Abu Sufyan Ibn Harb.

Abu Sufyan Ibn Harb was the leader of the Quraish and one of the most fervent enemies of Islam. He practically led many wars against the  Muslims which also resulted in persecutions of many Muslims.

After the conquest of Makkah, he asked for forgiveness and accepted Islam. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ not only forgave him but also announced pardon for all those who would enter Abu Sufyan رضي الله عنه house.

Safwan Ibn Umayah

Safwan Ibn Umayah created a plot for killing Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in collaboration with Umayr Ibn Wahb which proved to be a failed attempt.

After the successful conquest of Makkah, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ told Umayr to communicate this thing to Safwan Ibn Umayah that he has been granted an amnesty for four months during which he can live in Makkah as a free man.

It was a great shock for him as he already feared his execution because of his heinous crimes and he was making plans to hide and run from Makkah.

After the battle of Hunayn, he was also rewarded by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ an entire valley of camels for his help in providing weaponry.

He got so impressed by the behavior that he accepted Islam and urge other people also to believe Allah and His Prophet.

Along with these, we can also find many other forgiveness stories of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ available in different Islamic scriptures.
