Omar Suleiman is a Muslim scholar and speaker. Originating from America, he presides the Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research.
He said he was bashed at the University of Florida with bad comments about Islam and his attackers included Terry Jones, who was the first person to burn the Qur’an. He is known to have talked to a non-Muslim woman, who enquired about Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and his wife Hazrat Ayesha (R.A).
During the recent years, Islam has been linked with terrorism and other unlawful acts despite these are strictly prohibited by the religion. It is now uncommon for a person who has little knowledge of this peaceful religion to fall into misconceptions and misunderstandings about it. The life of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) has evoked many questions for everyone worldwide, especially his relationship with his wife Hazrat Ayesha (R.A) who got married to him at a very young age.
A non-muslim woman approached Omar Suleiman to help her understand the union of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) to the young Hazrat Ayesha (R.A). At first, Omar Suleiman asked her if she has read about Hazrat Ayesha (R.A), and she said ‘no.’ Then, he went on by explaining that such marriages were normal at the time. After listening to his explanations, Omar Suleiman put her a series of questions, which the woman refused to answer. Hence, he next gave her some reading material before she could talk about Hazrat Ayesha’s (RA) age.
Ultimately, the non-Muslim woman was astounded by the story and decided to revert to Islam and name her daughter ‘Aisha.’
In one of the supporting ralies, Omar Sulaeiman was arrested for supporting the immigrants’ rights in the United States upon getting the huge support he was taken down by the United States police for supporting people who are in suffering.
