The message of Islam is proselytized by the Prophet ﷺ in secrecy in the earlier years of Prophethood. Murmurs of this new faith adopted by the downtrodden of Makkan society reach the ears of the Quraysh elite until its later made public.
Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه advocates for the freedom of enslaved Muslims like Bilal ibn Rabah رضي الله عنه. Abu Jahl tortures vulnerable Muslim families like Yasser, Sumayyah, and Ammar رضي الله عنهم. Omar's friends confront him.
Persecution reaches unbearable lengths, and a group of Muslims seeks refuge in Abyssinia in King Najashi's kingdom. As frustrations in Makkah mount, so, too, does Omar's رضي الله عنه animus and frustration toward the Prophet ﷺ.
Amr ibn Al As lobbies Najashi to return the emigrated Muslims to Makkah. Abu Talib and the family of the Prophet ﷺ strategize to protect him. The Quraysh tighten their grip on the Muslims of Makkah with a pledge to boycott hung in the Ka'bah.

Failing to heed military strategy proves costly for the Muslims as Makkans seek revenge in the Battle of Uhud. Despite earning his freedom, dissonance stirs Wahshi's heart. Salman رضي الله عنه, a companion from the distant lands of Persia, provides strategic insight on the eve of another battle.
The Battle of Khandaq approaches and the Muslims must simultaneously confront the Makkan army and Jewish tribes of Madinah who've abandoned their oaths with the Prophet ﷺ from two different fronts. A treaty with the Makkans at Hudaybiyah tests the patience and mettle of the companions.
Stipulations agreed upon in the Treaty of Hudaybiyah begin to backfire for whoever remains among the polytheist Makkans. Delegations of representatives are sent to neighboring kingdoms and lands to spread the message of Islam. The Ummah goes toward Makkah to make Umrah with the Prophet ﷺ.

Former foes find solace in the compassion of the Mercy to Mankind ﷺ. The Ummah suffers its greatest loss in the passing of God's final messenger ﷺ. Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه provides the Muslims with much needed wisdom in this time of heartache.

Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه and leadership devise a military strategy to fight the Byzantine Empire, a superpower of the world, in Syria.
