In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Why Immigrants (Muhajirs)
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

Before discussing this critical issues let us understand our mistakes in the light of the Quraan and Sunnah of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) and how we can implement at present time and always remember that our life is a test.

Migrations are mainly due to two main reasons, Natural or Manmade. Here I would like to discuss more about possible Solution to Natural or Manmade Disasters due to which people need migrations. Since the start of the humanity people have conflicts and now all over the world and which are for our tests. Allah gave us the Quraan (True Book of Guidance) to resolve it in a true brotherhood way. If one does not understand then he/she must ask those scholars who have true knowledge in that particular field. One of the signs for them will be that they don’t ask any payments for their preaching on Deen of Allah according to the Quraan and they follow the commandments of Allah (Ref: Al_Quraan_036:021).

Although there are issues all over the world regarding immigrants (Muhajirs) including in almost all Muslim countries but it hurts most when Muslims victimize Muslims including in the Middle East where their spoken languages are Arabic and you will sure find many such Muslims still living in camps for generations and waiting for some angles to come down and help them. One of the reasons is that these Muslims have left behind the message of the Quraan and Teaching of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon_him).

Let us learn from the practical example of Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), when Muslims of Makkah had to migrate to Madinah, He asked Muslims of Madinah, who can build true brotherhood and accept these immigrants as their brothers. All 100% Muslims of Madinah stood up and shared whatever Allah has provided them, and there were no more Immigrants (Muhajirs) left behind and all became Locals (Ansaars) within a week of time. Then Allah’s Mercy came on both of them and Allah blessed them and increased them by all means. In this there is a Great lesson of humanity and brotherhood.

Whenever there is similar situation comes around same request of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) comes again for our test, do Locals (Ansaars) have stand up and adopted the immigrants as their brothers, if not perhaps Allah’s Mercy may not come to ease their burden. Check current scenario in all Muslims countries, they are facing huge problems around them since they are not helping each other by rejecting the message of the Quraan and Practical Teaching of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him). Allah’s laws never changes, and people need to change according to the Quraan to get Mercy from Allah. Intersect Marriages are one of the key to come closer and forgive each other. Do whatever you can do to build Muslim Brotherhood.

In Public Sectors, Defense, Politics and many other areas balanced representation must be adopted. In the West in Europe and North America are widely open to immigrants, e.g. easy to get marriages with them, easy to join their Public Sectors, Politics, Defense Sectors etc. even one keeping his dual nationalities. In Practical Terms, West are more adopting the messages of the Quraan and Teaching of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) than many Muslim Countries except few cases like Alcohols/Drugs, Same Sex Marriages, Living without Marriages etc. In many areas West are adopting Zero Tolerance with any kind of discrimination of age, ethnicity, gender/sex, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, skin color, or other characteristics.

Question: Why still they call themselves as Immigrants (Muhajirs)?

Answer: Locals (Ansaars) still have not opened their hearts yet like people of Madina did at the time of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) and accepted all 100% Immigrants (Muhajirs) as their brothers, so there were no more leftover Immigrants (Muhajirs).

People Need to Change Themselves According to the Quraan and Teaching of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) but NOT Reverse.

Global Media Must Play and Active Role on Promoting Global Brotherhood.
