The Polytheists prostrate

Then at this statement do you wonder?
And you laugh and do not weep
While you are proudly sporting?
So prostrate to Allāh and worship [Him]. [An Najm: 59-62]

When the Prophet (saw) was in Makkah he faced extreme opposition from the Quraysh, however, when he read this verse to the polytheists their reaction was different. Below is an excerpt from “When the moon split: Mubarakpuri” Page 76.

Suddenly the Prophet (saw) rose before the Quraysh and began reciting the verses of Surah Al Najm. The Quraysh kept silent. No one there had ever heard such powerful words. They were bewildered: Muhammad, their sworn enemy, was standing before them reciting, and they were powerless. No one could stand to make him stop, and none could even ridicule him. The Prophet (saw) reached the closing verse and prostrated, putting his head to the ground in worship of Allah, Lord of the universe.
Miraculously, all of the Quraysh were so overcome by the recitation that they prostrated along with him.
