House of Abu Jahal

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.
