Hello Plato,

I have already explained to you that Rasool is a Warner and Giver of glad tidings. He tells them everything and God does not send punishment in a day or two. He gives both people enough time to hear Rasool and pay attention and enough time to Rasool to explain everything.

13 years is not a short time. After 13 years, punishment for Maccan came in the Batle of Badr when all chiefs were dead, within next few years, Makkah itself fell into Rasools hands.

Now all the Maccan saw that Rasool was not telling them jokes. He was talking serious, when he used to tell them stories of Noah, Hud, Lot, Jonah. When he used to frighten them from God's Wrath and call them toward God's Mercy.

With the fall of Macca, it became evident to other Arabs, that Muhammad's message is not false. Many accepted Islam willingly but few of them took on the same attitude as did the Maccan, a stubborn and arrogant attitude.

Just like Maccan, they rejected Rasool and fought against him and like Maccan, there end was no different than them.

One by one all the Arabs fell down and it became evident to Kings outside Arabia and within Arabia, that Muhammad is special and his message should be taken seriously, but Kings were also no different than the old Maccan, same arrogant attitude, same stubbornness and resultantly their kingdoms fell to the hands of Companions.

And now read this message of God.

Surely, those that oppose God and his Rasool, shall be humiliated. God has decreed, "I will surely triumph – I and My Rasool". Powerful is God and Mighty

(Quran 58:20-21)

Just see, Arabs before and after Muhammad. Before Muhammad, they were fighting tribes, and they were never the challenge for the kings of greater empires.

I hope you could get my points.
