…if you become Muslim that will be dearer to me than if al-Khattab were to become Muslim.

When al-‘Abbas (رضي الله عنه) , the  paternal uncle of the Prophet  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) , was taken captive, ‘Umar Ibn al -Khattab (رضي الله عنه) , was keen for him to be guided to Islam and he said to him:

O ‘Abbas (رضي الله عنه) ,, become a Muslim, for by Allah, if you become Muslim that will be dearer to me than if al-Khattab (Father of ‘Umar) were to become Muslim. That is only because I saw that that the Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah wishes that you would become Muslim.
