Umar R.A became a Muslim after listening to the beginning of Surah Ta-ha.
We have not sent down to you the Qur'an that you be distressed
But only as an admonition to those who fear Allah (Qur'an 20:1-3)

He was astounded. It was as if the Qur'an was addressing him directly
After reciting few verses, his sense of justice could no longer deny the truth of the Message
Prophet ﷺ had also made a dua for this occasion -"O Allah, help Islam with one of the two men that is more beloved to You: Abu Jahl or 'Umar ibn Al-Khattab & the more beloved was Umar."
As Umar R.A was reciting Qur'an (Surah Ta-ha), his heart began to melt down. He began to cry.
He then went straight to the house of the Prophet ﷺ. Once he was admitted in the house, the Prophet ﷺ asked him for the reason of his visit.
