Uttering not a world the Great Prophet (Sm) returned home. Hamza (Ra) had just returned from hunting. He came to know about this incdent. He rushed angrily in that condition to the compound of Kaba. Seeing Abu Jahl sitting among other leaders of Quraish he roared like a lion. Striking Abu Jahl’s head with his bow again and again, he said, what you you dare rebuke my nephew and strike him. Hamza declared so listen I recite la illaha illallahu Muhammad (Sm) is his Messenger) and I accept islam, the religion of Muhammad (Sm). Hamza presently went the great Prophet (Sm) and narrated the whole incident. He also informed him about his conversion to Islam. The great Prophet (Sm) was very pleased by acceptance of Islam by a warrior like Hamza.
Hazrat hamza (Ra) was a mighty brave warrior. He was honoured by the title of the lion of Allah his Prophet’s for his incomparable bravery. After accepting islam hamza (Ra) dedicated himself to the cause of the Great Prophet (Sm) and Islam. He remained like a shadow with the Great Prophet during different crises. When the Great Prophet (Sm) was engaged in preaching Islam security of the Prophet (Sm) and the Muslims rested with Hamza (Ra). Hazrat Hamza (Ra) earned name and fame for his excellent bravery in the battle of Badr. In that battle the Muslims kill many Quraish leaders including Abu Jahl.
In the battle of Uhud, Hamza (Ra) was one of the targets of the infidels for killing, because many Quraish heroes were killed by Hamza (Ra) in the battle of Badr. As a result at one stage of the battle, Abyssinian slave wahshi Ibn Harb with a’spear attacked him. He fell down on the ground and was martyred.
