أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas  narrates that Rasulullaah ﷺ sent a messenger with the invitation of lslaam to Wahshi bin Harb who was responsible for killing Hadhrat Hamza (the uncle of Rasulullaah ﷺ). The messenger returned with a message from Wahshi stating, O Muhammad! How can you call me to Islaam when you say that a murderer, a Mushrikeen and adulterer shall meet with a grave punishment and this punishment will be multiplied for them on the Day of Qiyaamah where they shall remain disgraced in it forever (as mentioned in verses 68 and 69 of Surah Furqaan). I have committed all of these crimes, so is there any scope for me?”

Allaah then revealed the verse:

The punishment of jahannam is for all murderers, Mushrikeen and adulterers) Except for those who (sincerely) repent, accept Imaan and perform good actions. For such people Allaah will convert their sins into good deeds. Allaah is Ever Most Forgiving, Most Merciful. {Surah Furqaan, verse 70)

In reply to this verse, Wahshi said, O Muhammad! The condition in this verse is uncompromising which states, ‘Except for those who (sincerely)repent, accept Imaan and perform good actions.’ What if I do not have the opportunity to fulfill it?” Allaah then revealed the verse:

Verily Allaah does not forgive that Shirk be committed, but may forgive all (sins) besides this for whom He wills. {Surah Nisaa, verse 48)

To this, Wahshi replied, “This forgiveness depends on the will of Allaah. I do not know whether I shall be forgiven or not. Is there any other scope for me?” Allaah then revealed the verse:

Say, O My bondsmen who have wronged their souls (by committing kulr or other sins)! Never lose hope of Allaah’s mercy. Verily, Allaah forgives all sins. Undoubtedly, He is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful.” {Surah Zumar, verse 53)

Upon hearing this, Wahshi said, ‘Yes, this is in order.” He then accepted Islaam.

Other Muslims asked, ORasulullaah ﷺ! We had also committed the sins that Wahshi committed (Does thisverse apply to us as well?).” Rasulullaah ﷺ replied, “It applies to all Muslims in general.”
