Abu Sufyan (RadhiAllahu ‘anhu) reported:

In course of his detailed narration about Heraclius when the latter questioned him about the teachings of the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he said that: He (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) told (us):

“Worship Allah alone and do not associate a thing with Him; and give up all that your ancestors said. “He (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) also commands us to perform Salat (prayers), to speak the truth, to observe modesty and to strengthen the ties of kinship.

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Commentary:
The Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) sent letter to the then Roman emperor Heraclius calling him to the true faith Islam, so that he and his followers will be saved. Upon receipt of the Prophet’s (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) letter, he rushed a courier to bring forward any man familiar with the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Abu Sufyan an enemy of the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was in the area and was brought forward to the Roman emperor Heraclius.

In above Hadith an enemy of the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) acknowledges the veracity of the Prophet’s teaching, because Abu Sufyan  (RadhiAllahu ‘anhu) made this admission when he was a pagan.
