Emigration in This Time

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:


During the time of our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam making Hijra from Mecca to Madinah was Fard or as Wajib to all Muslims. Making Hijra to Madinah and leaving Mecca was the order of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla to our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. After it was conquered, there was no more Hijra. It was no more Fard.

When people have the necessity – necessity comes more from the inability to practice religion in some area – they can emigrate somewhere they can practice it. Certainly, people in the present time leave their countries and emigrate to other places not for this but for livelihood, to live in more comfort, to earn more money. However, this Hijra is not for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. It is for personal interest.

For Muslims, what’s important is the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gives Rizq everywhere. You can find your Rizq everywhere. Wherever Allah ﷻ has written it, you will find it there. However, you must make Hijra not for Dunya but for Akhirah.

People of the present time don’t think about it. What they think about is worldly things. Wherever they go, as soon as they have some shortage, they say, “I will go there and earn more money. I will have more comfort there”. Many people think like that. This is not a good thought. It is not a good thing because it’s rather a land of Kufr where they emigrate. They are places that make you forget Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, places of freedom which encourage you to go against Him ﷻ and to do all kinds of shame. It is done here and everywhere as well. But it is done without much encouragement.

Therefore, people, Muslims should have Iman in their hearts, Iman that Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is Ar-Razzaq. May Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla give our Rizq in good places. May He ﷻ give it in places where our Iman will not be harmed. We have to put this in our minds.

There is advertising, propaganda, this and that all the time. They take away lands and homelands of people and deliver them to some places in full misery. And then Iman is lost. May Allah ﷻ protect us.

In old times, we know that Europeans used to capture and bring slaves from Africa, from here and there. They were bringing them by force. Until they reached the land, more than half of them died on the way. And the rest was tortured leaving very few alive. They were taking slaves by force. We are looking now, people are willing to become slaves and are running to it. They perish in seas and here and there. Why? For Dunya [which is worth] of two pennies.

May Allah ﷻ give mind and understanding to people. May He ﷻ send the Sahib to Muslims, to all people so that they reach comfort. They will not reach comfort otherwise. Wherever you go, even if you walk up to moon, you will not reach comfort when you are against Allah ﷻ. May Allah ﷻ protect us. May He ﷻ give strength to our Iman insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
