Phases and Stages of the Prophetic Call to People towards Islam

The  Muhammadan  Call  could be  divided  into  two  phases  distinctively  demarcated: 

1. The  Makkan  phase:  nearly  thirteen  years. 

2. The  Madinese  phase:  fully  ten  years.  Each  of  the  two  phases  included  distinctive features  easily discernible  through  accurate  scrutiny  into  the circumstances  that  characterized each  of  them. 

The  Makkan  phase  can  be  divided  into  three  stages: 

1. The  stage  of  the  secret  Call:  three  years. 

2. The  stage  of  the  proclamation  of  the Call  in  Makkah: from  the  beginning  of  the  fourth  year  of Prophethood  to  almost  the  end  of  the  tenth  year. 

3. The  stage  of  the  call  to  Islam  and  propagating it  beyond  Makkah:  it  lasted  from  the  end  of  tenth year  of  the  Prophethood  until  Muhammad’s     (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam)  emigration  to  Madinah.

The  Madinese  phase  will  be  considered  later  in  its  due  course.
