Umar bin Al-Khattab Embraces Islam
`Umar bin Al-Khattab embraced Islam after the first migration the Muslims made to Abyssinia. His conversion to Islam was a momentous event and a great victory to Islam.
Before his Islam, `Umar was one of the strongest personalities in Mecca and one of the bitter enemies of Muslims. Though he was going to kill Allahs Messenger (peace be upon him), he embraced Islam, as Allah destined what was best for him and answered the Prophets supplication to support Islam with either of the two opponents of Islam i.e. `Umar bin Al-Khattab or `Amr bin Hisham (also known as Abu Jahl). As `Umar embraced Islam, Muslims status became stronger as it was when Hamzah bin `Abdul-Muttalib - the Prophets uncle embraced Islam. `Umar called Muslims to observe Prayer at the Ka`bah under his protection. The Quraish could do nothing to prevent them as they knew well `Umars strength and determination. Rather, they resorted to another method in resisting the Call to Allah, which was boycott

prompted me to look for this hadith....
Narrated Abu Dhar:
Once, while I was in the company of the Prophet, he saw the mountain of Uhud and said, "I would not like to have this mountain turned into gold for me unless nothing of it, not even a single Dinar remains of it with me for more than three days (i.e. I will spend all of it in Allah's cause), except that Dinar which I will keep for repaying debts." Then he said, "Those who are rich in this world would have little reward in the Hereafter except those who spend their money here and there (in Allah's cause), and they are few in number." Then he ordered me to stay at my place and went not far away. I heard a voice and intended to go to him but I remembered his order, "Stay at your place till I return." On his return I said, "O Allah's Apostle! (What was) that noise which I heard?" He said, "Did you hear anything?" I said, "Yes." He said, "Gabriel came and said to me, 'Whoever amongst your followers dies, worshipping none along with Allah, will enter Paradise.' " I said, "Even if he did such-and-such things (i.e. even if he stole or committed illegal sexual intercourse)" He said, "Yes."
