Best Answer

it was because the people who were ruling at that time thought they were losing power when more people became Muslim and christian. For the Quraish, they thought they were losing power when Muhammad (saw) turned more people to Islam, so they thought that the only way to make them disappear was to banish them from Makkah. The other reason was that people felt insulted when Islam came and the last prophet said that idol worshipping is not right. They felt insulted that he was questioning their beliefs. The same goes with Christianity.

Hope this helps!
