ہجرت حبشہ کے تناظر میں غیر مسلم ریاستوں کے مسلم شہریوں کا دستور العمل
The Manual for Muslim Citizens of Non-Muslim States in the Context of Abyssinian Emigration
Keywords:Abyssinian Emigration, Non-Muslims, Migration to Habsha, Manual
Just as there were trade relations between Yemen and the Arabian Sea from ancient times, so also there were trade relations between Abyssinia and the Arabian Sea from ancient times. This was the reason that the residents of Makkah were well aware of the conditions in Abyssinia and as soon as the permission was given by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), the Companions of the Prophet PBUH immediately prepared for this migration. Muslims migrated to Abyssinia twice. The first time, 15 or 16 people were involved, while the second time, about 101 people participated. The last caravan of Abyssinian emigrants reached Medina directly on the 7th Hijra.
One of the arguments arising from this migration is that in the country or region in which Muslims settle, they face problems in religious, cultural, economic, political, moral and social affairs, especially when it is difficult to fulfil religious affairs, they are allowed to migrate from one place and settle in another place. Also, if a Muslim gets better economic, commercial, business and earning opportunities in a non-Muslim state than in an Islamic state, then such Muslims should migrate from a Muslim state and settle in a non-Muslim state. Similarly, Muslim students can enrol in non-Muslim educational institutions and obtain higher degrees.
These all above matters are allowed with the condition that they don't let the wealth of their faith go to waste during their studies, stick to trust and honesty and protect their honour and reputation. This research also proves that it is important for Muslims to follow the laws of the country in which they live.
