Abu Sufyan ibn Harith was a companion and cousin of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and prayers upon him). After early years joining in the persecution of the Prophet Muhammad for preaching Islam, Abu Sufyan later became convinced of its truth, and embraced Islam wholeheartedly. In his later years, he was one of the most fervent defenders of the Prophet, and a sincerely devoted Muslim. Muhammad (peace be upon him) said of him, "Tell all the people that the Messenger of God is pleased with Abu Sufyan and that they should be pleased with him."
