The Holy Quran : ” And when those who disbelieved devised plans against you that they might confine you or slay you or drive you away ; and they devised plans and Allah too had arranged a plan ; and Allah is the best of planners .” Chapter 8 , 30
When the planner is Allah , when the Prophet is last prophet and when the relijion is global ; every Apostle’s action and reaction has some meaningful target..What was the major aim of Migration?
In the name of Allah
The Hijrah ( Migration )
The idol-worshippers of Mecca devised a secret plan to kill the Prophet . At night they surrounded his house from all sides with the aim of forcing themselves in at the end of night and cutting him of the plan and commanded him to leave for Yathrib . The Prophet asked Ali (a.s) to sleep in his bed so that the enemy would not detect his absence ; Ali (a.s) readily agreed to sacrifice his life for the Prophet’s bed .
Then the Prophet left the house under Divine protection , passing amidst his enemies , and taking refuge in a cave near Mecca . After three days when his enemies , having looked everywhere , gave up hope of capturing him and returned to Mecca , he left the cave and set out for Yathrib .
Establishing an Islamic Community
The people of Yathrib , whose leaders had already accepted the message of the Prophet and sworn allegiance to him , welcomed him with open arms and placed theire lives and property at his disposal.
In Yathrib for the first time the Prophet formed a small Islamic community and signed treaties with the Jewish tribes in and around the city as well as with the powerful Arab tribes of the region . He understood the task of propagating the Islamic message and Yathrib became famous as “Madinatu ‘r-Rasul”(the city of the Prophet )
Islam began to grow and expand from day to day . The Muslims , who in Mecca were caught in the mesh of the injustice and inequity of the Quraysh , gradually left their homes and property and migrated to the Medina , revolving around the Prophet like moths around a candle . This group became known as the ” immirants ” ( muhajirin ) in the same way that those who aided the Prophet in Yathrib gained the name of ” helpers ” ( ansar )
The prophet formulated the society on the basis of justice and equality among the believers .
Brotherhood – not just in words but in action – was established among the muhajirin and the ansar . The social system of Islam even extended its justice and protection to the non – Muslims under its rule .
Ayatollah Khamenei have said about Migration :
The migration of the Prophet (s.a.w) to Medina was purposely for fighting against and abolishing the oppressive environment, the roughneck and political immorality, bad economic and social matters which were dominant by then.
It was not only a matter of clashing against disbelievers; the matter was not a regional, but was a global one.
The Prophet (s.a.w) was after this aim that wherever he lucks into a favorable environment, would plant a seed of his divine theological thoughts; willing that by the support of this good weather the seed would germinate; the target was of bringing the responsible and freedom message, vigilance and providence to all human beings.
This was possible to be done only by establishing an authority and a model. Hence, prophet’s migration to Medina was aiming at establishing that sample of system and that model.
The capacity of continuing and keeping themselves closer to that system was fundamentally based on their ambition. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w) makes the sample and displays it to the entire people.
The system that Prophet (s.a.w) made has many indexes from which seven of them are more professional than the rest.
