Suhayl ibn Amr
Suhayl was one of the leaders of Mecca at the time of the birth of the Islam. He was a prominent man among the leaders of Quraish, and was a skilled orator. He was among those leaders who refused to protect Muhammad on his return from Ta'if, and was instrumental in concluding the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah. He insisted that the treaty be signed from the Muslim side as Muhammad, son of Abdullah (Muhammad ibn Abdullah) rather than Muhammad the Prophet of Allah (Muhammad RasulAllah), saying that the Qurayshi side did not accept his Prophethood.
He had two sons, Abu Jandal and Abdullah, both of whom converted to Islam before him. This led to him disowning them until he himself later converted.
He later became a Muslim after the conquest of Mecca. He calmed the Muslims in Mecca after the death of Muhammad. He participated in the battle of Yarmuk on the Muslim side.
