‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) came to Makkah and the people of Makkah came rushing to him. They said, “O Amirul Muminin, Abu Sufyan (رضي الله عنه) has built a house and blocked the water, so that now it runs through our houses and will destroy them. ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) went carrying a stick and found that Abu Sufyan had set up some stones. He said, “Remove this,” and he removed it. Then he said, “(And) remove this and this…” until several stones, five or six, had been removed. Then ‘Umar turned to face towards the Ka’bah and said, ”

Praise be to Allah who made ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) give orders to Abu Sufyan (رضي الله عنه) in the centre of Makkah and he obeys him.”
