THE HIJRAH from Islamic City

After Muhammad had preached publicly for more than a decade, the opposition to him reached such a high pitch that, fearful for their safety, he sent some of his adherents to Ethiopia, where the Christian ruler extended protection to them, the memory of which has been cherished by Muslims ever since. But in Mecca the persecution worsened. Muhammad’s followers were harassed, abused, and even tortured.

So, it is evident that Migration is a natural phenomena even practiced by Prophets and “gods” but all the Muslim countries from OIC, OPEC including Malaysia refused to legalize the Migration of downtrodden Muslims around the world, including Burmese Muslims and Rohingyas from Myanmar.

Most of the facts are taken from various pages and articles of Wikipedia and from the Quran.

Muharram (Arabic: محرم) is the first month of the Islamic calendar.

Muslims started to count their calendar from the day of Hijrah, when our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) migrated from Mecca to  to Madinah (approximately in July 622 A.D.).

Muharram is so called because it was unlawful to fight during this month; the word is derived from the word ‘haram’ meaning forbidden.

It is also said that in this sacred month Allah created the universe and Adam was created as the first human who appeared in the universe and also Musa and Essa (Jesus Christ) were born.
