  1. Secret Invitation:
After becoming Prophet,the first stage was to decide as to whom the message of praying only one ALLAH Should be given first.
It was the hard test for the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW)to say something which established contrary to the beliefs and costume of the Arabs.So The Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) decided to invite those who were close to Him(SAW) and knew about this righteous and Piety .
It was not possible for them to contradict Him(SAW). Hazrat Khadija (R.A.)was the closest to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).Then there were Hazrat Zaid (R.A.) Hazrat Ali (R.A.)and Hazrat Abu Bakar (R.A.)was a close friend of His (SAW)All these were enjoying the company of Hazrat MUHAMMAD ( Peace be upon Him)for years.So, The Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) conveyed the message of to these people.All of them listened to the message and certified it.
These were the first four Muslims.
Hazrat Usman (R.A.)

Hazrat Abdur Rehman bin Auf(R.A.)
Hazrat Sa,ad Bin Abi Waqas (R.A.)
