    • JazakAllahu khair. Another lesson from hijrah is the need for being sensitive and responsive to happenings in our environments, and being mindful of their impacts on our goals and activities. This need was typified by the couple as they engaged a close family member who shared in their vision, to regularly feed them back on happenings and sayings in Makkah while they were in the cave. May Allah grant all it takes to succeed here and in the hereafter, amiin.

  1. Assalam-o-Alaykum Akhi
    I agree with you about the reason for migration because that is exactly why our Prophet SAW migrated. We all have been taught that he migrated to escape the persecution and that his life was under a threat. He had been ordered by Allah SWT to move the Dawah to the second stage, the stage where Islam was implemented as a system, as a state (for which it was always intended). This is the reason why he had started going to different tribes to seek Nusrah. there is a long list of tribes he approaced, Taif we all know so well, but “the sealed nectar” has names of quite a few tribes. For the same reason the people of Aus and Khazraj were approached and they agreed to give Nusrah and protection to Islam (as in the second pledge of Aqabah, also known as the pledge of war). In Medina he entered as the head of the new Islamic state, Abdullah bin Ubai was taken by surprise and his slave prevented him from making any move.
    So whats the lesson in it for me? To work for what Prophet Mohammed Saw worked for 13 years without tiring, without losing hope i.e. to establish Islam on this Earth (which can only be done in its complete form through the establishment of an Islamic state). 

  2. I’m very agree with you, but the very real essence of it is dedicating all effort, action, creative for Allah. Goooo!, with Hijra in all aspect of muslim’s life, muslim people will arise. Allahu Akbar!!!!

  3. MashaAllah, this was sent to be when I most needed it.after reading the article it was like d teaching was for me and Alhamduilah It really had an impact on my present life..May Allah keep guiding us to the right path…ameen

  4. Assalamalaikum Akhi,

    That’s a wonderful article , Subhan Allah . I learnt a very good lesson from it . May Allah SWT reward you immensely for your work . Ameen.

  5. Salam alaykum, that’s a nice article.
    For me, it’s definitely not just about the prophet’s hijrah but hijrah on every individuals part, hijrah in the form of reformation of the soul, reflection on ibadah and lifestyle and a new resolution for this hijrah year such as migrating from sins to repentance and to a lot of good deeds.
    Keep up the good work – muslimproductive and I pray Allah makes this new hijrah year full of his mercies, blessings and forgiveness on everyone of us.

  6. Jazakallah for such a nice initiative on sharing thoughts about Hijrah.May Allah bless us & make us productive
    Muslim Ummah.

    “In essence, the migration was not about saving his life, but it was about saving the message and fulfilling his mission! ”

    Very good though. Need to think deeplu about it . Waiting eagerly for “Productivity Book ” From Abu.
    We need to learn complete Biography of Prophet S.A .
    May Allah give us strength to be more productive by all means.

  7. Jazakallah khair for the useful article..It is very easy to read and understand this information.But it is hard when it comes upto action…As we know,its our purpose that to be a productive muslim/muslimah,we should apply this in our life..That is migration from wrong to good or sins to repentance..May Allah swt help us to apply this in our life and to be a productive muslim or muslimah..

  8. AssalamuAlaikum, what an eye-opener! I had something like that in mind about this topic of hijrah in order to aim for productivity for the sake of Allah (s.w.t). I’m so glad that I learned from this article. I appreciate it.
    Jazak Allah khair brother.

  9. Assalam o Alikum,
    Really its a great article, and eye opening towards another important point,
    May Allah give you best reward ameen,


  10. MashaAllah a very instructive and comforting article. Actually the day before I did my kind of Hijrah, I left my job as Manager. This job was starting to have a negative impact on my life in general and yesterday was my last day in the company. Alhamdulillah I am now trying to become a more productive Muslimah.
    The decision of leaving my job was taken after reading on the Hijrah of the Holy Prophet (SAW) and what a surprise to have an article on the Hijrah as well.

    Excellent article.

  11. jazakAllah khair. A wonderful perspective and interpretation of migration. thank you.It really helped me to think what i need to migrate for.

  12. Such a concise, inspiring and powerful article, thank you, jazakullah. We don’t often contemplate on what we should move away from in order to be more productive. May Allah guide us all to the right path and help us make the right decisions. Ameen.

  13. MashAllah really outstanding lessons
    And inshAllah you shall achieve your goal in this world and better in hereafter
