●|● Islam and the Message of Islam is The Truth! ●|●
Mughira bin Shu’ba narrated that the first time he came to know about Prophet (peace be upon him) was when Prophet (peace be upon him) met him walking with Abu Jahal in one of the alleys of Makkah. Prophet (peace be upon him) said to Abu Jahal,
“0 Abul Hakam! Come to Allah and His Messenger. I am inviting you to Allah.”
Abu Jahal replied, “0 Muhammad! Will you not refrain from insulting our gods? Do you want us to testify that you have conveyed the message? We then testify that you have conveyed the message. I swear by Allah that I would have certainly followed you if I knew that whatever you say is the truth.”
Mughira bin Shu’ba says that when Prophet (peace be upon him) had left them, Abu Jahal said to him,
“By Allah! I know for sure that whatever he says is the truth. However, there is only one thing that prevents me from accepting. He Prophet (peace be upon him)] belongs to the Bani Qusay family and when the Bani Qusay said, ‘Keeping the keys to the Kaa’ba is our duty,’ we accepted. Thereafter when they said, ‘Giving water to the people performing Hajj is our duty,’ we again accepted. Thereafter when they said, ‘Chairing the public meetings is our duty,’ we again accepted. Thereafter when they said, ‘Holding the flag during times of war is our duty,’ we again accepted. After that, they fed people and we also fed people until we were almost on par and then they say, ‘We have a Prophet among us.’ By Allah! This I shall never accept.”
