COMMENT | There was a man called Bilal who lived in Mecca during the time of Prophet Muhammad. Both his parents were slaves from Ethiopia, and so, despite being born in Mecca, Bilal became one too.
Bilal’s master was a Quraysh rich merchant. Being a slave, Bilal lived a hard life and had no free will. But one day, he heard of the Prophet and his messages about the one true God and rushed to embrace Islam.
