Due to blockade, the missionary activities subsided in Makkah. The Holy Prophet turned to other cities. Taif was a near one.
He went there with the invitation of Islam. But as it turned out, they wouldn’t even listen.
They hooted and hurled stones at the Holy Prophet. It is said that the Holy Prophet’s sandals were soaked in blood, but he still prayed for their mercy.
He returned to Makkah in state of despair. The missionary activities were now very limited and took place in limited close circle.
But a miracle was to happen → the migration to Madinah (called Yathrib then).
