It is generally well established that the ruling elite in early Islamic history was composed of the Ansar of Medina, the Qurayshite Muhajirun of Mecca, and the Qurayshite aristocracy of Mecca. The latter group joined the ruling elite after the surrender of Mecca (Donner 1981:274- 275, Shoufani 1972:25-26). Since the role of ʻUmar b. al-Khattab in the power struggle within this elite is still unresolved, an inquiry focusing on this subject might bring some precision to our understanding of the relations among these groups.
