How can we make hijrah for the sake of Allaah nowadays?
Praise be to Allaah.
(migration) for the sake of Allaah means moving from the land of shirk to
the land of Islam, as the Muslims moved from Makkah – before its people
became Muslim – to Madeenah, because it had become the city of Islam
after its people had pledged their allegiance (bay’ah) to the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and asked him to make
hijrah to them. So Hijrah means migratinmg to join other Muslims. Hijrah
may also take the form of moving from one land of shirk to another land of
shirk where evil is less prevalent and there is less danger to the
Muslims, as when some of the Muslims migrated from Makkah, at the command
of the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), to
Allaah is the Source of Strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad
and his family and companions, and grant them peace.
