He faced numerous challenges within Arabia: some people apostasized, others refused to pay zakah, and quite a few individuals emerged as false prophets, attracting many followers. Outside Arabia, the Persians and Byzantines keenly observed these developments, looking for an opportunity to crush the new state.
