Although the prophet Mohammed inaugurated the invitation of Islam by proclamation, he was attacked. He and the other believers who followed his doctrines by their freewills were wished to be killed. The prophet and his followers had to abandon their homelands with the anxiety of saving their lives. However, the enemies of Islam disturbed them where they emigrated. Thus, they were ordered to prepare for war since they had to protect themselves. Then, the proclamation of Islam emerged with three methodical stages; the first of which is good advice, the second is divine wisdom and the third is the arm power that guarantees the prior ones. We will mention these topics in our article.
