 'Amr Ibn Al-'Aas (May Allah be pleased with him)

'Amr ibn Al-'Aas (May Allah be pleased with him) came to the Prophet peace be upon him in Medina one year and one month before the Conquest of Mecca. He embraced Islam and swore allegiance to the Prophet peace be upon him in return for having the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him supplicate for the forgiveness of all of his previous sins. In a hadith narrated upon the authority of 'Amr ibn Al-'Aas who said, narrating the story of how he embraced Islam:
 
"When Allah put Islam in my heart, I went to the Prophet peace be upon him in order to swear my allegiance to him. When (the Messenger of Allah r) extended his hand to me (to accept my pledge of allegiance) I said: 'O Messenger of Allah, I will not swear my allegiance to you until you seek forgiveness for me for all of my previous sins!' The Messenger of Allah peace be upon him said: 'O 'Amr, do you not know that migration (from the land of the kuffaar to the land of the Muslims) wipes away all of the sins before it? O 'Amr, do you not know that Islam wipes away all of the sins before it?'"
 
After that the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him put him in command of a military operation to a place called dhaat-us-Salaasil. The Messenger of Allah peace be upon him also used him for a mission in 'Omaan and he remained there until the Prophet peace be upon him died.
 
And in another hadith, narrated upon the authority of 'Uqbah ibn 'Aamir who said that the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him said:
 
"The people have submitted (to Allah) but 'Amr ibn Al-'Aas has believed (in Allah)."
 
In another hadith, narrated upon the authority of Ibn Abee Malaikah who said that Talha ibn 'Ubaid-Allah said that he heard the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him say:
 
"'Amr ibn Al-'Aas is from the righteous people of the Quraish."
 
In addition, 'Amr ibn Al-'Aas was amongst the bravest of the Arabs and one of their most skillful champions (May Allah be pleased with him)
