Retracing the Hijra (Part 3) – Shaykh Faid Mohammed Said

Through the Hijra (migration) Allah supported the prophetic message. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) called people to Allah because he loved them and wanted good for them. The people didn’t appreciate it. This rejection of the prophetic message was one of the causes to make hijra (migration). When the command came down to make hijra (migration). His first concern was to return things that belong to people that he was in possession of. After the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) planned to leave, the leaders of Quraysh planned to kill him. He took all the means to ward the harm of Quraysh, but relied upon Allah alone. He (peace and blessings be upon him) entered Madina with absolute humility. He built Madina physically and spirituality, encouraging love between one another. The greatest muhajir (emigrant) is the one who abandons everything that doesn’t please Allah.
