The tribe of Quraish was scattered throughout Hijaz until the time of Qusayy bin Kilab, the ancestor of the Holy Prophet (upon whom be Allah's peace).
As against the other Arabian caravans, the Quraish had the advantage that the tribes on the route held them in high esteem on account off their being keepers of the Ka'bah.
That is how the four brothers became famous as traders and began to be called ashab al-ilaf (generators of love and affection) on account of their friendly relations with the tribes and states of the surrounding lands.

 Syed Maududi's Commentary for Surah #48   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The disbelieving Quraish had debarred the Muslims from proceeding to the Ka'bah for the past six years and no Muslim had been allowed during that period to approach the Kabah for the purpose of performing hajj and umrah.
The disbelieving Quraish looked at it as their victory, and the Muslims were upset as to why they should be humiliated to accepting those mean conditions.
Now the Quraish themselves by concluding this agreement with the Holy Prophet recognized his sovereignty over the territories of the Islamic State and opened the way for the Arab tribes to enter treaties of alliance with either of the political powers they liked.

 ESSCR: Historical Background
As soon as masters of Quraish were sure that The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was not to be tempted by money or tribal power to stop spreading the divine message he was charged with, they announced openly their enmity to him and his followers.
Quraish's masters did not believe Muhammad (PBUH), and instead of just turning him down by refusing his quest, they were provoked and tried once more to attack him.
He took the decision of invading Quraish in its homeland making it clear for his companions and followers that he did not aim for war and blood shedding but for putting an end to fights that were taking place in the holy Macca.

Muhammad's father, Abdullah, had died almost six months before he was born and the young boy was brought up by his paternal grandfather Abd al-Muttalib, of the Banu Hashim clan of the Quraish tribe.

The Prophet thereupon sent word to the Quraish that they should either pay blood-money for those slain from among the Khuza'a or dissociate themselves from the Banu Bakr, or, in the last resort, declare the truce of Hudaibiya to be null and void.
The Quraish did not agree to either of the first two proposals, and the result was the annulment of the truce.
The Quraish were unable to meet this force and the Prophet declared a general amnesty, guaranteeing safety to all those who entered Abu Sufyan's house, or closed the doors of their own houses or entered the sacred precincts of the Ka'ba.

The Quraish became accustomed to these two profitable and peaceful trips, which were soon established among their traditional habits.
And this is a reminder which generates and leaves a deep shame in the hearts of the Quraish, who were not unaware of the great value of the House and the effect of its sanctity on their lives.

 DAWN - Opinion; June 6, 2003
As the Quraish, estimated at close to a thousand, horse and foot, advanced towards the proverbial 313 strong force of the Believers, the Prophet picked up a ‘handful of gravel’ and throwing it towards the enemy shouted “confusion on their forces”.
The reason for the change of the tactics was that the Quraish under the leadership of Abu Sufian Ibn Harb ibn Umaiya had come front-loaded armed to teeth and at least three times more numerous than the raiding party at Badar.
The Quraish stormed the disorganized ranks of the Believers and turned the tide of war in their favour.

Those stand-bearers of Unity and justice of Allah (though an insignificant minority in comparison to the swarms of idolaters who were bent upon maintaining statuesque in religion and social system) were confident that everyday their supporters were increasing and the rank of their adversaries was decreasing.
They even hoped that soon the curtain of ignorance would be removed from the eyes of the non-believers and the whole tribe of Quraish would embrace Islam, casting away their idols.
Though the news was not confirmed, but the refugee's deep faith in their religion, and their strong expectation and hope in the ultimate victory of Islam led a group of them to return to Mecca without waiting for the confirmation of the news from reliable sources.

 Biography of the final messenger - MUHAMMED - peace & blessings be upon him
In fact the influence of the Quraish was so great that even if they had not exerted themselves in their resistance to Islam and in the defamation of the Prophet peace be upon him they still could have swayed the people.
Also the Quraish, as leaders, protected the oppressed and helped the needy as is evidenced by Hilf Al-Fudool(17) which was an agreement concluded in the house of Abd-Allah ibn Judan (18) All of these factors influenced the Arabs to wait and refuse to accept Islam until the people of Mecca -the Quraish- accepted Islam.
C) The outright rejection of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad by the Quraish would seemingly have been enough of a deterrent for the rest of the Arabs but the Quraish added to that very public and very vocal attacks on Islam and the Messenger of Allah using every means at their disposal.
