At the time of Muhammads birth what brought religious pilgrims to Mecca?
Well, At the time of his birth and before the Holy Kaaba was very respected by all people and mostly Arabs which is why they came there every year or so. And so at the time of his birth people didnt know he would be a prophet so they didnt come specially for his birth. They were already there or came for another purpose.

The Hajj is the pilgrimage to Mecca, the largest annual pilgrimage in the world. Every able bodied Muslim who can afford must attend the Hajj atleast once in their lifetime. It shows their loyalty to God and how much faith they keep in God. It is one of the Five Pillars of Islam.
After Muhammad left Mecca in 622, he went to Yathrib, the placewere his father was interred. Yathrib was later called Medina. Itis also Muhammad's burial place.
The Prophet (P.B.U.H) spend his childhood in Mecca. He (P.B.U.H) explained the principles of Islam to family members and to foreigners (not openly to local people). When he migrated to Medina, Muhammad (P.B.U.H) was comfortable enough to preach openly and publicly.
Answer:) Muhammad Fled From Mecca Because People Got Tired Of His Beliefs And They Wanted To Kill Him! That's Why He Fled From Mecca!
There are several steps to the Hajj. 1. Pilgrims enter the state ofconsecration for hajj when they reach the borders of the generalarea for hajj. 2. When they arrive in Makkah, they generallyperform tawaf, walking around the Kaaba seven timescounter-clockwise, and then they offer two rakats (units) …of salat(formal Islamic prayer.) They also perform saie, walking back andforth between Mounts Safa and Marwa. The Kaaba, Safa, and Marwa areinside the Holy Mosque in Makkah. 3. On the day of Arafat, they goto the Valley of Arafat, and stay there until sunset. It is inArafat that the pilgrim's sins are forgiven. This is the mostimportant ritual of the hajj. 4. After sunset, they move to anothervalley, Muzdalifah, and spend the night there. 5. The next day, theFeast of the Sacrifice, or Eid-al-Adha, they sacrifice a sheep andgive the meat to the poor. Nowadays, this is done by professionalbutchers in processing plants. Pilgrims pay a fee to have thisdone, and seldom see or participate in the actual slaughter. Theprocessing plants clean and then freeze or can the meat, which isdistributed to the poor in a number of countries. 6. Once thesacrifice has taken place, pilgrims trim their hair and nails, andleave the condition of consecration. 7. Before leaving Makkah, theyoffer a farewell tawaf. (MORE)
A Muslim pilgrim who goes to Makkah to perform the Hajj is called a "Hajji."
It changes year to year depending on full moon sighting this years pilgrimage (Haj) will start November 30th. and last day will be December 28th. Next year it will be near that time frame but a few days different.
Because Muhammad taught in the name of Islam that there was only one God, Allah, and the Meccans were polytheistic meaning that they worshipped many gods. The Arabs in Mecca, known as the tribe of Quraish, used to make a living on the business they would make when people from foreign lands came to… make pilgrimage in their city to the idol gods. Muhammad was seen as a clear threat as he said that the idols weren't worthy of worship, and as such, the people of Quraysh who hadn't accepted Islam wished to kill him. (MORE)
There were several reasons that the leaders of Mecca opposedMohammed and his faith. Preserving Religious Pluralism: The religiousplurality permitted in Mecca was critical for maintaining Mecca'simportant position along the Arabian trade routes. It was onaccount of the fact that Mecca was holy sit…e for all Arabian faithsthat spared it from internal conflict and allowed the flourishingof commerce in the city. Mohammed made clear that he intended topurge the idols from the Kaaba which would cause mass uproar andend Mecca's position as a holy site for all Arabians. Of course,this does not take into account is that nearly all Arabians wouldconvert to Islam after the fall of Mecca. Politics: The Chief Leaders of the Qoreish Tribewere the most powerful men in all of Arabia. Should Mecca fall tothe Muslims, they would certainly lose substantial power. SinceMuslims believed that these leaders were corrupt, they likely stoodto face criminal acts if they were subject to Mohammed's authority.The merchants often had good dealings with the Qoreish and did notwish to disrupt the status quo. Raids on Merchants: During Mohammed's MedinanPeriod, Mohammed organized and executed numerous raids on caravansheading to and leaving from Mecca, causing disruption to Arabiantrade routes. Violently attacking peaceful convoys does not speakwell of your faith/group. Polytheism: Mohammed demanded that all polytheistsabandon their gods for the singular Allah. Polytheists wereincensed that they should have to conform to Mohammed's standards.Some of those polytheists were Meccan leaders. Incongruities with Other Monotheisms: Many Jewsand Christians saw the revelations of the Qur'an to be bits andpieces from their traditional scriptures and religiouscommentaries. They felt like Mohammed was repackaging theirtraditions and doing so incorrectly as a result, they saw no reasonto convert to Islam. Some of those Jews and Christians were Meccanleaders. Massacres of Opponents: Mohammed massacred tribes(most often Jewish tribes, but polytheist tribes as well) that didnot align themselves with him in war. Regardless of whether thiswas permissible, which most historians say was a valid 7th centurytactic, it did not engender warm feelings between the massacred ortheir sympathizers and Mohammed. (MORE)
Answer 1 Mecca's leaders felt threatened because Muhammad had so much powerover the people, the rulers thought he was going to over throw theempire for himself. Answer 2 Abu Sufyan and the Meccans did not oppose Muhammad arbitrarily.They had specific grievances, which included: Preserving Reli…gious Plurality: Abu Sufyan opposed Mohammedbecause the religious plurality permitted in Mecca was critical formaintaining Mecca's important position along the Arabian traderoutes. It was on account of the fact that Mecca was holy site forall Arabian faiths that spared it from internal conflict andallowed the flourishing of commerce in the city. Mohammed madeclear that he intended to purge the idols from the Kaaba whichwould cause mass uproar and ended Mecca's position as a holy sitefor all Arabians. Of course, what Abu Sufyan did not take into account is that nearlyall Arabians would convert to Islam after the fall of Mecca. Keeping His Own Power: Abu Sufyan was one of the ChiefLeaders of the Qoreish Tribe and one of the most powerful men inall of Arabia. Should Mecca fall to the Muslims, he would certainlylose substantial power. Many Muslims hold that he was corrupt aswell, meaning that he stood to face criminal acts if he weresubject to Mohammed's authority. Protecting Commerce: During Mohammed's Medinan Period,Mohammed organized and executed numerous raids on caravans headingto and leaving from Mecca, causing disruption to Arabian traderoutes. Since Abu Sufyan was in an important position in Mecca,this was something he would be expected to ameliorate. Polytheism: It was likely that Abu Sufyan was fighting indefense of Arabian henotheist religion to which he ascribed againstMohammed who would demand that he abandon all gods but Allah. (MORE)
Muhammad and his followers returned to Makkah (or Mecca) to get it available for hajj (or ilgrimage) because they were formerly deprived from doing hajj. However, when the Meccas (or Makkah) surrendered to them without fight, prophet (PBUH) forgave all of them and didn't take any revenge against any… of the Meccas who tortured Muslims and deprived them from their money and properties before they were obliged to immigrate from Mecca or against who fought him and his followers after he left Mecca to Medina. He and his followers removed all the idols around Kaaba. Then, they all returned to Medina without getting with them back any of the wealth or properties in Mecca even their own former money or properties. (MORE)
Yes, he returned to Mecca (or Makkah) in year 632 AD to remove the Idols around the Kaaba, to save the tortured Muslims who are still in Mecca, and to secure the safe Hajj for Muslims.
First it was not escape. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is inspired by God and do what God commands and inspires him to do. God commanded prophet Muhammad to migrate to Yethrib (that was called later as Medina or Almadinah) to start the real spread of Islam religion and God promised prophet Muhammad that h…e will be back again to Mecca at some point and this what happened. The immediate reason for God command to prophet to Migrate (although no reason should be searched for any God command) is the plan of the pagans in Mecca to assassinate prophet Muhammad. In addition, prophet Muhammad migration to Medina opened the door to Muslims in Mecca; who were subject to continuing torture by the non believers; to migrate to Medina. (MORE)
Muhammad returned to Mecca in 622 AD. Muhammad is said to be thelast prophet of God in the Islamic religions.
People of Mecca surrendered to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his followers without fighting. Although Muslims suffered from the oppression of the disbelievers of Mecca and although when the prophet and his followers immigrated from Mecca they left behind their money and properties. Prophet Muhammad(PB…UH) forgave all of them, destroyed all the idols around Kaaba, and returned to Medina with his followers without causing any harm or damage to people of Mecca or to their properties.

fought him and tryied to kill him and then sanctions him and other Muslims and Muslims lived in out of city for 3 years under sanctions and even could not but food. until Muslims immigrated to Medina secretly.
Answer God (ALLAH) informed Prophet Mohamed (peace upon him) that representatives from all the tribes in Mecca gathered around his home to assassinate him when he goes out. His cousin Ali Ibn AbouTaleb was with him at home. He replaced him in bed and covered with his "Burda". Prophet Mohamed went ou…t home, and by God miracle, the gatherings around his home didn't see him. He threw some dust on faces of the gatherings around his home and, by miracle of God, they all fell in deep sleep. Early in the morning, they woke up and each time they look through the window they find who they thought the prophet is still sleeping. After some time they decided to push inside to find that Ali Ibn AbouTalebis sleeping in place of the prophet. By that time Prophet Mohamed (peace upon him) with accompany of his closest companion (Abou Bakr), who he passed by him after leaving home and asked his accompany, had already succeeded to be away from Mecca. note: Mohamed may be spelled Mohamad or Mohammad or Muhammad or Muhammed (MORE)
Mecca is associated to Islam. It's the Holiest city of Islam & Al-Masjd Al-haram (The Sacred Mosque) of Mecca is the Holiest Mosque in Islam. In this Mosque Al-Ka'aba is located which is the Qibla that Muslims must face when praying to God. Also, Muhammad, peace be upon Him,the prophet of Islam was …born in Mecca. (MORE)
Simply .. caz he was born there and then his teachings spread all over the world thx Allah ..
Muhammad went to Medina after preaching in Mecca for 10 years without success. The tribal and nomadic lifestyle lived by the people of Arabia at the time would not allow the Meccas to change their lifestyle (based of heroism and tradition) to a monotheistic state of living which history has shown ne…eds the support of a state. Muhammad went to Medina with 70 people of very low status (the kind Jesus associated with, mainly sinner and prostitutes) and established a community by striking a deal with the leaders there. Muhammad established himself not only as a religious leader but also as a political one. He did two impossible things at once by changed the political structure of Arabia and simultaneously integrating a monotheistic belief in "the one God" of Israel. (MORE)
Many of Mecca inhabitants disliked prophet Muhammad at the start of his mission because of the following main issues that the prophet and Islam religion call for: . limiting racism, which was widely spread, through equating by all people (the poor and the rich; the Arab and non Arab; Males and Fem…ales; etc..) and teaching that one is better than another only with good deeds and piety. . limiting slavery, which was also widely spread, through encouraging freeing them as one of the good deeds to get God forgiveness and rewarding. . forbidding worshiping the idols as partners to God(Allah) and consequently the trade of Idols was threatened. (MORE)
Mecca, the birth city of prophet Muhammad, belongs to the nowadays country of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) called people of Mecca toprevent themselves from worshiping Idols as partners to Allah (God)and to worship the one and only one God (Allah) with no partner, nofather, no son, no companion, and no resemblance and to believe inMuhammad as His prophet and messenger.… and after he was rejected from Mekkah and resided in Medinah hechanged 180 degrees and the last teachings of his abrograte themisleading "softer" verses of Mekkah. People of Mecca were idol worshippers. They wer plunged into thedarknss of ignorance. They were drunkards, gamblers, cheaters andsuperstitious. They buried their daughters alive and had no respectfor women. They exploited the poor and the weak. They followed norule. Their motto was, "Might is right." When the last Prophet of Islam Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) preached themessage of Almighty Allah inviting the Meccans to worship only OneAlmighty Allah, to be honest, truthful, fair, and straightforwardin their dealings, they turned against him. They were not ready tochange their traditions, culture and the power over the poor andthe slaves. They felt a threat. (MORE)
Because the people didn't listen to Muhammad [pbuh] about the truth which told by Allah's to command them. Mohammed was expressly threatened by many Meccans for upsetting the balance and ordering them to abandon their faiths for his. They were not interested in renouncing their religions.
Muhammad PBUH entered Mecca with his Muslim companions in 8 hijrea (630 AD ). It was the day of remission & pardon from Muhammad PBUH to all of the people of Mecca. All the return was an act of grace.

Assalamu Alaikum (May peace be on you), It should be understood that Makkah was the first place chosen to build the first mosque by Adam(pbuh). This mosque was again rebuilt by Prophet Ibrahim and his son Ishaq (pbut) . And for the first time the holy pilgrimage-Hajj began and Islamic monotheism …prevailed. After the death of the two prophets the people lost faith and began worshipping idols. They yet maintained the rituals of hajj though in a manipulated form. Before the birth of Prophet Muhammad the tribals provided the pilgrims with water and Makkah was a huge business destination with 360 idols in the Kabah .(ironically there were idols of Ibrahim and his son too.) Hope this answers your question. Asslamu Alaikum (peace be on you) Thanks for the answer that is almost comprehensive. There is a misquoting in the answer. The Kabba was rebuilt by Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) and his elder son Hazrat Ismaiel (AS). Hazrat Ismaiel (AS) was born to him from his wife Hazrrat Hajira (AS) and Hazrat Iszak (AS) was born when Hazrat Ibrahim and his first wife Hazrat Sara (AS) had grown very old. (MORE)

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) returned to Mecca (Makkah) for two reasons: . To remove the Idols (worshiped by unbelievers) that spread around Kaba. . To allow Muslims to practice their worship of Hajj to Mecca with no harm or restrictions.

For many reasons: . First reason is the God command to him . Second reason is to destroy the Idols in Mecca and around the Kabah and bring it as it was during the era of prophet Ibrahim or Abraham (PBUH) free from any idol to be worshiped parallel to God (or Allah in Arabic) . Third reason is… to lift up torture of Muslims who were still in Mecca and didn't migrate. (MORE)
Muhammad PBUH conquered with his Muslim companions the city of Makkah without fighting. He forgave the Makkan people in a historical act of grace despite the too much harm they caused to Muslims, even the reason for conquering Makkah was because of breaking the treaty of Al-Hudaebeah by the pagans o…f Makkah.

Mecca contained the Ka'aba, which was believed to have been builtby Abraham and was the spiritual center of the Arabian peninsula.
He did not tell "everyone" to leave Mecca, but only non-Muslims. He gave this instruction because he wanted Mecca to be a totally Muslim state. He allowed the pagans four months to leave. After that, he instructed his followers to kill any pagans whom they might find still in Mecca.

He dealt justly and honestly with them for the first forty years of his life. He worked as a herdsman and merchant and fought in the Blasphemous War. In the period 610-613, he did not draw attention to his prophetic office. He only discussed it with friends and relatives who seemed interested in co…nverting to Islam. With the Meccans in general, it was business as usual. In 613 Mohammed announced publicly that he was a prophet and called on the Meccans to convert. When most of them refused, he warned them they would go to Hell and insulted their traditional gods. In the period 614-616 Islam became violent. Mohammed's disciples started fights in the streets, and the Meccans reciprocated by beating Muslim slaves. Between 616-619, the Meccans declared a trade boycott against Mohammed's clan. Mohammed had to retreat from public life and discontinue his social and commercial relationships with the Meccans. He did not have much to do with them in this period. The boycott was lifted in 619. In 620 Mohammed formed an alliance with a few converts in Medina. He then warned the Meccans that he would attack them in an actual war if they did not convert to Islam. Over the next two years, he gained about sixty more allies in Medina, and it became clear that he really might resort to military force against Mecca. Eventually the Meccans made a plot to kill him. Mohammed escaped from his assassins and fled to Medina in 622. He warned the Medinans that the Meccans might bring an army to attack him there, and the people of Medina promised to protect him. But the army never came. Mohammed led a series of raids against Meccan merchant caravans, but the Meccans never retaliated. In March 624 Mohammed led a party of 313 Muslims against another caravan - only to find that the caravan had escaped him and he was confronted with the 900-strong army of Mecca. The Muslims took the army by surprise and thoroughly routed them. This event is called the battle of Badr. A year later, the Meccans brought a revenge-army to Medina and they beat the Muslims. Mohammed did not retaliate immediately because he was busy dealing with people in and near Medina who had not supported him. Two years later, the Meccans formed a huge alliance with other Arab tribes and besieged Medina, hoping to finish Mohammed forever. But the siege failed, and the Meccans had to return home in defeat. Mohammed spent the next few years subduing the various tribes of Arabia, but his goal was always Mecca. By 630 he was finally powerful enough. He brought an army of 10,000 to Mecca. In fact he conquest was nearly bloodless because most of the Meccans surrendered. Mohammed destroyed all the idols in the temple and demanded that all the Meccans convert to Islam. He gave a deadline of four months, after which any non-Muslim found in Mecca would be killed. No non-Muslin has been allowed inside Mecca since that date. (MORE)

Answer 1 He wasn't "kicked out". He and the Sahaba, or his companions, wereseverely prosecuted for turning their backs on idol worship. SomeMuslims fled to Ethiopia, where they were protected by theChristian king Negus. Later, Muhammad received the revelation toleave Mecca and migrate to Medina. …Answer 2 Contrary to both Answer 1 and the Expert Answer above, Muhammad wascertainly "kicked out" of Mecca. He and his followers repeatedlydemanded the destruction of the idols in the Ka'aba and, therefore,attracted much negative attention from those whose religions hesought to persecute. In return they violently attacked him and hisfollowers and planned to assassinate them. Muhammad, wanting toprotect his own life and that of his followers decided to flee tothe one city that would have him, Yethrib, before beingassassinated. Whether or not you wish to attribute this decision toflee would-be assassins to God is your prerogative, but hecertainly was not leaving by choice; he genuinely feared for hislife in Mecca. (MORE)
During the time of Muhammad's birth and childhood, Mecca was knownas the the home of the Ka'abah. However, at that time it was notknown as 'the Home of Allah' but the home of the numerousidols the Arabs believed in. It was known as a city ofmass-pilgrimage as well as trade.
The people of Mecca worshiped about 360 idols when Hazrat Muhammad(SAW) started preaching Islam. The people of Mecca didn't like theworship of only One God (Allah). They reacted very strongly againstIslam. They tortured the people who embraced Islam and theteachings of Hazrat Muhammad (SAW).
Mecca has been a sacred and important city since the time of HazratAbraham (Ibraheem) AS.
