Hijrah

The one who makes Hijra is the one who distances himself from what God has forbidden AL-HABIB ALI AL-JIFRI We should all reflect and contemplate at the beginning of every Hijri year on the wisdom inherent in the interchange between day and night, and the passing of months, we are a community which ties its calendar and its history to the Exodus of the Messenger of God ,peace and blessing be upon him. We could have based our calendar on the birth of the Messenger of God peace and blessing be upon him. ...A human being dies in the manner in which lived, and is resurrected in the manner in which he died. When a believer is aware of such meanings, he becomes an individual who can build a nation, and will be chosen by God to bring succour to the nation of Mohammed ,peace and blessing be upon him . We are close to receiving succour as a nation. perhaps many of you will see this unfold for yourselves. Let not the strutting about of the Deniers of truth through the land deceive you:  brief is their comfort, those whom God will choose to bring succour to the community will be those whose certainty regarding the news they have received from God and His Prophet, peace and blessing be upon him is greater than their certainty in the information they receive via their sensory faculties. This is something we need to be aware of: those through whom God will bring the succour which is shortly coming to this community will be those whose lives exemplify these meanings, those whose days and nights pass-by with them forsaking what God has forbidden in themselves, their spouses, their offspring and in their dealings with those around them. The Messenger of God ,peace and blessing be upon him said: “this affair will reach every place which experiences night and day, and God will not leave a dwelling made mortar or of hair except that God will cause this faith to reach it, whether by the honour of the people of honour or the abasement of the abased” . If you live these meanings, with a heart which is settled and certain of these facts, Islam will enter every house through your dignity, and if you are heedless of this, living a purely worldly existence, forgetful of your afterlife and the fact you are a Muslim who carried the responsibility of spreading goodness and faith through your good character, rectitude and lofty aspiration, the faith will still spread but will do so without you, leaving you in a lowly state, so observe your year from its very beginning and check how it passes by. O God bless this year and allow us to turn towards your presence with good works and ennoble us by accepting us and granting us rootedness in what You love and that which is pleasing to You. Hijra from the trilateral verbal root Hjr to emigrate, to disassociate, separate , part, secede, keep away, part company, to give up, renounce, forgo, avoid, to abandon, surrender, leave behind, relinquish, leave, give up, vacate.

Above are the intention for studying from Imam Abdullah Al-Haddad (RahimuLlah) translated as: All praise to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. And salutations and greetings upon our master Muhammad and upon his family and companions. I intend to study and teach, take and give a reminder, take and give benefit, take and give advantage, to encourage the holding fast to the book of Allah and the way of his messenger, and calling to guidance and directing towards good hoping for the countenance of Allah and His pleasure, proximity and reward, transcendent is He.
