Although some converted, many others (especially the tribal leaders) opposed, ridiculed and eventually boycotted his clan, and his followers were harassed, tortured and forced into exile. Several attempts were made on his lifeSahih Bukhari: Volume 6, Book 60, Number 339 When his uncle and chief protector, Abu Talib, who was the head of the clan of Banu Hashim died, Muhammad migrated to Medina in 622, where many had converted and agreed to help and assist him.
