House of Abu Jahal

Abu Jahal’s actual name was Amr ibn Hisham but he was commonly known as Abu Hakam (“Father of Wisdom”) among the Quraysh as he was considered a wise man. His relentless hostility and belligerence towards Islam earned him the name Abu Jahal (Father of Ignorance) among the Muslims. He was a member of the Banu Makhzum clan of the Quraysh.

- Abu Jahal was not a real uncle of the Prophet (s.a.w.) [not his father’s real brother] but his father’s cousin. He was a staunch polytheist and greatly disliked the Prophet (s.a.w.), taking any opportunity to rebuke and publicly humiliate him.
