About this episode

This talk by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi highlights the lessons we can learn, imbibe and inculcate from the hijrah or Emigration.

We are acquainted with the story of Umm e Ma’bad and how her husband and she accepted Islam and what made them to do this. The Prophet ﷺ made da'wah even along his way , inviting people to Islam and thinking about saving people.

What can we learn from the Hijrah? What does it try to teach us?

  • The meticulous planning and preparation for the Hijrah as is cited in numerous instances and the sheer thought process into the detailing is something to be admired if not be mesmerised by given the dire and most trying of circumstances they were in.
  • Abu Bakr RA is the ONLY sahabi whose companionship has been testified by Allah in the Qur'an and to go against him is to go against the Word of Allah SWT.

Why did Allah choose Yathrib(Madinah) as the destination for the Hijrah over all the places in the world, say for example, Abyssinia?

  • Strategic location and proximity to Mecca.
  • Magnanimous city from a military viewpoint.
  • Indomitable spirit of the people of Madinah made it the perfect group to propagate Islam.

Many blessings have been ordained for the city of Madinah, among which are:

  • The Prophet ﷺ made Dua for Madinah - "cause us to love Madinah as much us we loved Mecca or more than this".
  • It has the mountain of Uhud where the Prophet SAW said "this is a mountain we love and it loves us". The Prophet ﷺ said Uhd is one of the mountains of Jannah.
  • The Prophet ﷺ also blessed the food of Madinah.
  • The Prophet ﷺ said "make Madinah double the blessings of Mecca".
  • The Prophet ﷺ said "whoever amongst you is able to die in Madinah let him do so, because I will intercede for him on the day of Judgement" Which implies that it is a huge blessing to die in Madinah.
