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.

Retracing the Hijra (Part 2) – Shaykh Faid Mohammed Said

In this podcast Shaykh Faid Mohammed Said continues speaking on the Hijra (migration) of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). During the Hijra people suffered a lot. Making Hijra is the way of the prophets. Many companions suffered in Makka after living a very comfortable lifestyle prior to accepting Islam. Allah opens doors of light and guidance when people make sacrifices for His sake. The way to Allah is to be patient during one’s trials. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was being tortured and still asking for guidance for his people. The stopping of  the ability to call to Allah in Makka is what lead to the Hijra.
