Story of the Hijrah (Migration) (Part 1)


We start with the Name of Allah and ask Allah to raise the rank of our Master Muhammad peace be upon him.



Another lunar year has passed and a new one has begun to remind us of the glorious memory of the great day in which the Prophet peace be upon him migrated to al-Madinah. The blessed Migration displayed an honorable strife for human excellence and contained several lessons of patience, forbearance, knowledge and wisdom; enrichment for future generations to implement and use to iron out difficulties and overcome hardships and learn to persevere.

Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, received the revelation in Makkah and therein he was ordered to teach and spread among a society drowning in ignorance the rules of Islam, the religion of all the Prophets, so that justice and peace prevail and winning in the hereafter may be achieved. The people at that time used to worship idols, bury their newly born female daughters while alive and commit many acts of wickedness and debauchery; they were devoted to an immoral style of living that opposed the proper manners and ethics taught by the Prophets of Allah.

Allah the Exalted has sent His Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, with guidance to renew the call for Islam. During the prime trading season the Prophet used to pass among the people in Makkah and tell them:

Say La ilaha illallah (There is no God except Allah) and you will win.

He brought them the good news of the great reward for those who believed and warned those who did not believe a severe torture in the hereafter.

In the outset of his Call a few people believed in him but the majority renounced his Call and denied his prophethood. However, the Messenger of Allah persisted and eventually met in Makkah some people of Yathrib (Madinah) from the tribes of Al-'Aws and al-Khazraj; he invited them to embrace Islam so six of them accepted at first. When they left to go to Madinah, he sent with them with some Companions to teach the Qur’an to the ones who believed and to call upon the ones who did not embrace Islam to do so; hence, their number increased by the following year.

The Prophet and his Companions who believed in him endured and tolerated the wrong doings of the blasphemers by remaining steadfast to the path of Islam and acting in accordance with what is incumbent upon them of its rules.

When the number of the believers increased in Madinah, Allah revealed to the Prophet, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, to migrate to it. The Muslims then started to migrate one after another in compliance to the order of Allah and in obedience to the order of the Prophet, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam.

The blasphemers of Quraysh were severely shocked by the speedy way the Religion of Islam was spreading and they wanted to find a way to eliminate it.

The blasphemers of the tribe of Quraysh noticed the continuous migration of the Companions to Madinah. So, they feared that the Prophet would do the same and leave Makkah. They held a meeting and collectively conspired to kill Prophet Muhammad. In order to avoid revenge from the family of the Prophet, they decided to spread his blood among the tribes. So they schemed to have one man from every tribe strike the Prophet with their swords all at once, thus it would be hard to seek revenge from all the tribes.

Angel Jibril peace be upon him descended and informed the Prophet about Quraysh’s scheme of killing him and ordered him not to sleep in his regular sleeping place. Jibril also conveyed to him Allah’s permission to migrate. The Prophet ordered his cousin ^Aliyy Ibn Abi Talib to sleep in his place and to cover himself with the Prophet's green shawl and to return the belongings of the people which they had kept with the Prophet for safe keeping; ^Aliyy obeyed the order. By that time the blasphemers had already gathered at the Prophet’s door.

Fully relying upon Allah the Exalted, the Messenger of Allah left his house with his hands full of soil and he sprinkled the soil over the heads of the conspirators while reciting verses from Surah Yasin.

وَجَعَلْنَا مِن بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ سَدًّا وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ سَدًّا فَأَغْشَيْنَاهُمْ فَهُمْ لاَ يُبْصِرُونَ

This means: We have made before them a barrier and a barrier behind them, so We have covered them over so that they cannot see.

Thus, Allah blocked His Prophet from their sight. In the morning they went into the Prophet’s house to kill him but instead they found ^Aliyy sleeping in his place. They erupted in rage and fury out of humiliation and embarrassment, especially when they found the soil on their heads. Angry, furious, and nervous they left the house seeking the trails of the Prophet.

We ask Allah to enable us to learn the proper lessons from the Blessed Migration and to instill its rich meanings into our hearts guide us to march in the footsteps of the Prophet, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam.
