The people of Quresh tribe offered him money, women, kingdom and told Him to stop preaching. The prophet of Allah refused and said that he would not accept even sun and moon. He continuously preached the people towards Islam.

Message of Oneness of Almighty Allah.

The historian of Islam writes, when the King of Habash asked Hazrat Jafar Tayyar about Islam. Hazrat Jafar Tayyar replied, oh king, we were ignorant and worshiped the statues. We were not obeying the rules of Almighty Allah. Almighty Allah treated us sympathetically and send his prophet Muhammad (S.A.A.W) towards us, who was the noblest personality of our tribe. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) led us towards the right path of Almighty Allah. He taught us good things and forbad us from bad things. The holy prophet forbad us from the worship of other than Allah. He taught us the rights of women and orphans and forbad us from brutality and cruelty over them. The prophet of Allah ordered us to pray Nimaz (prayers) five time a day, keep Roza (fasten) in the month of Ramadan and pay Zakat (Islamic tax).

The prophet of Allah stressed upon good relations and good deeds with each other. Hazrat Jafar Tayyar told the king that they obeyed these orders of holy prophet Muhammad (S.A.A.W) and embraced Islam.

Prophet Muhammad (S.A.A.W) regularly preached the non-believers dwellers of Makkah humbly with logic. These dwellers embraced Islam and their strength increased day by day. On the tenth year of prophet hood, his uncle and wife Hazrat Khadija passed away. Similarly, the non-believers of Quresh increased enmity with him. When the non-believers of Makkah increased attacks on holy prophet, he shifted to Taif city and started preaching there. After some time, he returned to Makkah.
