The period of Islamic growth in Mecca from 610 to 622 AD can be
categorized into a full challenges and full obstacles period. The Islamic da’wah
delivered by the Prophet Pbuh often encountered some constraints due to the
resistance from the Quraysh leaders. At that time, it was difficult for Quraysh
figures to accept new beliefs, especially since Quraysh had a clan-based socio-
cultural system consisting of 14 clans. Of the 14 clans or tribes in Quraish,
there was competition for the political influence of Mecca which is recorded in
history. The purpose of this study is to explain the obstacles to Islamic da’wah
in Mecca caused by inter-clan politics among the Quraysh. The method used
in this study is a literature review method using primary sources from Arabic.
This study explains that the hindrance to Islamic da’wah in Mecca before the
Prophet’s Pbuh migration to Medina were caused by socio-cultural factors of
the people at that time, that is the competition between clans in Quraish.
