Hazrat Khaalid bin Sa‘eed bin ‘Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was among the first people to embrace Islam. He was either the fourth or fifth Sahaabi to accept Islam.

Before accepting Islam, he saw the following dream. He says:

I dreamt that I was standing at the edge of a broad and deep pit filled with fire. My, father, Sa‘eed, wanted to push me into the pit. Suddenly, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) appeared, held me by the waist and pulled me away. I awoke from the dream saying, “By Allah, this dream is true!” I then proceeded to Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and related the dream to him. Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “Allah Ta‘ala intends to bless you with goodness. This is the messenger of Allah. Follow him and embrace Islam. Insha Allah you will follow Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and embrace Islam, and it is your Islam that will save you from falling into the fire. However, it appears as though your father is falling into the fire.”

I then went to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and enquired, “O Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! What are you inviting us towards?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied:

أدعوك إلى الله وحده لا شريك له وأن محمدا عبده ورسوله تخلع ما كنت عليه من عبادة حجر لا يضر ولا ينفع ولا يدري من عبده ممن لم يعبده

“I am inviting you towards Allah who is alone and has no partner, and verily Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is His slave and messenger, and I invite you to forsake the worship of idols that neither have the ability to benefit nor harm nor do they even know who worships them or who desists from worshipping them.”

I then professed before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “I testify that Allah is alone and you are His true messenger.” In this manner, I embraced Islam.
