Al-As ibn Wa'il

  (Redirected from Al-'As ibn Wa'il)

al-'As ibn Wa'il (Arabic: العاص بن وائل‎) was the father of the Sahaba 'Amr ibn al-'As and Hisham ibn al-A'as.

He was a part of Hilf al-Fudul[1]

He was rumored to have had a relationship[clarification needed] with Layla bint Harmalah.[2]

Surat al-Kawthar is the 108th surah of the Qur'an, and the shortest. According to Ibn Ishaq, it was revealed in Makka, some time before the Isra and Miraj, when A'as ibn Wa'il as-Sahmi said of Muhammad that he was "a man who is cut off (from having a male progenitor) is of no consequence, and if he were killed, he would be forgotten"[3]

He never became a Muslim and left a will to his two sons [4]
