Allah instructed Muhammad to start with own household – thon within the own family. Then Muhammad to deliver his message to his family. He explained the new idea he has received from god and warned them about what would happen to those who chose not to follow him. Those among the idolaters could be ignored, if they would nor response to his call. So the down of Islam is classification into three stages. Firstly Allah ordered him to invited all his relatives to follow the Islam religion, but most o them refused it, because it was contrary with their grand parent’s culture, and some of his family refused hard to the Islam namely his uncle, ‘Abul ‘Uzza or he was well known as Abu Lahab.
We know that Muhammad The news of Muhammad’s retirement reached some of his aunts or relatives. They become worried that he might not be well. They decided to go and pay him a visit. When they got to his house the asked him about his health and told him ho worried they had been about him. Muhammad then went and invited all members of his family to dinner in his house. He invited all his uncles and his aunts, all his cousins and all their children. All of Muhammad’s relatives were invited, including even his stubborn and difficult uncle, ‘Abdul ‘Uzza
Muhammad answered, “There is nothing the matter with me. Allah has ordered me to introduce Islam to my family and household. So, I have to sit down and about the best way to do this. I had to collect my thought and ideas before I could speak to any of you.’
Muhammad understood his orders and went into retirement in his house for a few days. He thought very hard about what he had to do, trying to draw up a plan for the best way to approach his people and call upon them to accept the religion of Islam.
The next Allah commanded him to invite all the people publicly. But he started to invite people publicly by hiding; he declared the god messages from door to door. It was done on account of the people would be nervous and angry with new religion which he brought. So, they can accept the Islam willingly. And also in this way there were many people didn’t believe him and refused him. Event, they called Muhammad as crazy man. By this reality the prophet wasn’t angry, because he knew that they still didn’t know about the Islam. So, besides their mocking he always prayed to god in order he gave them the guidance.
Thirdly he invited the people publicly and frankly, after Allah sent the message which orders him to invite the human frankly, in the verse that order him to do this mission. From here up to Medina era he invited the people to come into Islam. So the preaching of Islam is divided into two era, namely Mecca era and Medina era.
What an enormous man! Muhammad who was fatherless and motherless could change the world from the bad culture to the best culture which was built under the pillars of Syahadah and the faiths that no God but Allah.
