He taught that God is One and that it is wrong, and futile, to worship or pray to idols. The Quraysh elders objected to this, because Makkah was, at that time, a center of pagan worship. They feared that if pagan worship ceased, their tribe would suffer a loss of influence and of income.

How did Muhammad unify most of Arabian peninsula under Islam?

Quarish at the time was a tribe whom no other tribe would want to mess around with. But when they were brought under the banner of Islam, the other tribes in Arabia knew that they weren't a match for the Muslims.And Islam has NEVER allowed forced conversions or violence. How do you expect Muhammad (peace be upon him) to force people into Islam? Islam is a beautiful religion and people in Arabia realised it so they converted BY CHOICE not by force.

Who tried to fail prophet muhammed through speech?

Kaab ibn Asad, chief of the Qurayza tribe, brought a legal case for Muhammad's judgment. He tried to bribe him by saying that if Muhammad decided in his favour, Kaab's whole tribe would convert to Islam. Kaab probably had a hidden agenda, i.e. that if Muhammad took the bribe, he would prove himself to be a false prophet. Muhammad did not fall into this trap. He refused the bribe and judged the case on its merits.

Why did Prophet Muhammad leave mecca to Medina and what was this trip called?

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) left Mecca to Medina per God command to him.

They had not accepted Islam. Some of them tried to bribe Prophet Muhammad (S) with money and power, including an offer to make him king. The Quraish's were enemies of the Prophet Muhammad (S), they began to persecute the Prophet (S) and his followers. Prophet Muhammad (S) waspublicly humiliated. Quraish's threw dirt on him whilst walking on the street and whilst he was praying. Abu Jahl wanted to step on the Prophet's neck, Abu Jahl said, "If I see Muhammad praying at the Ka'ba, I will tread on his neck." When the Prophet heard of that, he said, "If he does so, the Angels will snatch him away." Abu Jahl did not attempt this! SHARMIN

What did Muhammad tell Jewish people?

It depends entirely on the occasion. In the earlier period of Muhammad's prophecy, he invited Arabian Jews to convert to Islam by presenting "evidences" of his role as a prophet. These were, by and large, rejected by the Jews as being spurious connections and not valid evidences. After this wide-scale rejection of Islam by Arabian Jews, Muhammad became increasingly hostile to the Jews. He began to threaten them and accuse them of treachery, ultimately leading to the massacre of the Jewish Tribe Banu Qurayza in Medina and the later massacre of the Jewish Tribe Banu Nadir in Khaybar.

Who started Islam and when did this happen?

A Muslim would say that Islam is the natural religion of the human race and therefore Allah started it on the day he created Adam. A secular historian would say that the founder of Islam was Muhammad ibn Abdullah, an Arab from the Quraysh tribe who lived in Mecca. Muhammad said he had met the angel Jibreel (Gabriel) in a cave at a date equivalent to August 610, and the angel told him he was a prophet. It was several weeks or even months before Muhammad could come to terms with his strange experience and start telling his friends that they should worship Allah. It could be said that Islam, as it is understood in modern terms, existed from 611 onwards.

What did the people of Medina believe about Muhammad?

It depends on which Medinans you are talking about. There were six major tribes of Medinans, three who were Jewish and three who were Polytheistic, in addition to the Muslims who fled with Muhammad from Mecca, who functioned more-or-less as a seventh tribe. In the beginning, all of these tribes regarded Muhammad as a spiritual person, even if he was not of their religions, and a proper dispute arbitrator. This changed at the end of the eight years of Muhammad's time in Medina. At this time, most of the members of the Polytheistic tribes had converted to Islam and accepted Muhammad's claims of prophecy. Conversely, the three Jewish Tribes were quite wary of his claims and only a few of them converted to Islam. One Jewish tribe fled, one was forcibly ejected, and one was completely slaughtered. Accordingly, as a community, the Jews of Medina bore a negative image of Muhammad, at the end of their encounter.

How was Muhammad's message received in Mecca and Medina?

Prophet Muhammed received his message via the angel Gabriel. Gabriel delivered the word of God directly to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).Initially (in Mecca), Muhammad's message was met with pity and mockery from the majority of the locals. Only the closest people within Muhammad's social circle converted to Islam however, apart from this there were no significant positive responses. After seeing the growing influence of Islam, the leaders of Mecca resorted to persecuting Muhammad and his followers. They even bribed him to let go of Islam, promising him wealth and power. Eventually, Muhammad and his tribe were boycotted and exiled to the Valley of Abu Talib where they had to face inhumane conditions, having nothing to eat or drink. After this exile was ended however, Muhammad resorted to spread his message to Medina.The people of Medina were more welcoming to Muhammad, and his message. They lent an open-ear, Muhammad knew that know from the resultants of the Pledges of Aqabah. So, when he moved to Medina and assumed control, a vast majority received his message with respect and sincerity. It was the city of Medina that allowed Muhammad to nurture Islam and present it as it is now, a global religion.
