The Mission of Amr b. Umayyah al-Damri against Abu Sufyan[1] occurred in 6AH of the Islamic Calendar[2] i.e. 627 AD.

According to Ar-Rahīq al-Makhtum (the Sealed Nectar), a modern Islamic biography of Muhammad written by the Indian Muslim author Saif ur-Rahman Mubarakpuri, biographers have said that Amr bin Umayyah al-Damri was sent on an errand to kill Abu Sufyan (the leader of the Quraysh), who had also sent a Bedouin to kill Muhammad. The Mission was unsuccessful, but Amr bin Umayyah al-Damri killed 3 polytheists along the way.[3]
