The knowledge concerning the prophethood of the Arabs until the Prophet was relied on the stories of past prophets. In the beginning, they began to define the Prophet as a person who informs from the invisible world, predicts the future, has unusual and tremendous power, sorcerer, magician, and etc. However, when these qualities were insufficient to define the Prophet, they applied to the knowledge of the Jews. At the end, when the Arabs learned the nature of the Prophet through Islam, some chiefs of tribes claimed their own prophethood by imitation of the Prophet for their own worldly benefits.
