Invitation to Islam

  • Seyed Kazem Sadr
Part of the Political Economy of Islam book series (PEoI)


This chapter gives a brief presentation of the reactions of Makkah’s inhabitants to the Messenger of Islam before and after his prophethood, and reveals the degree of their opposition and resistance towards the invitation of the Holy Prophet (SAAS). Despite immense difficulties, the Messenger presented his mission by introducing its scope and by training a large number of Muslims accordingly. The doctrinal principles of the Islamic worldview and the ritual practices, which were made obligatory or recommended prior to migration to Madinahh, will also be presented here.
