Description from the publisher:
We know very well how the seed of Islam fared in its struggle to germinate and take root in the rocky soil of Makkah. It was super human faith that impelled Muhammad (SAW) and the handful of his followers to brave the threats, insult and atrocities of the jeering Makkan crowd and the supercilious Quraish elders. He remained resolute even when the prospects were bleak and dark. Twelve years' concerted preaching culminated in a few conversions only, well within the three-digit limit. Madinah witnessed a phenomenal transformation and expansion. How was this brought about? Dr. Yaseen M. Siddiqui provides the answer in this book, which proceeds to show analytically and dispassionately how the Islamic state developed.
