‏فضائل الصحابة‏ (The Virtues of the Companions)
CHAPTER: THE MERITS OF ABU SUFYAN B. HARB (ALLAAH BE PLEASED WITH HIM)  

No. 6095

Ibn Abbas reported that the Muslims neither looked to Abu Sufyan (with respect) nor did they sit in his company. he (Abu Sufyan) said to Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam): Allaah's Prophet, confer upon me three things. He replied in the affirmative. He (further) said: I have with me the most handsome and the best (woman) Umm Habiba, daughter of Abu Sufyan; marry her, whereupon he said: Yes. And he again said: Accept Mu'awiya to serve as your scribe. He said: Yes. He again said: Make me the commander (of the Muslim army) so that I should fight against the unbelievers as I fought against the Muslims. He said: Yes. Abu Zumnail said: If he had not asked for these three things from Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), he would have never conferred them upon him, for it was (his habit) to accede to everybody's (earnest) request.
