الهِجرَةُ / Migration

1ـ رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): أيُّها النّاس، هاجِروا وتَمَسَّكوا بالإسلامِ ؛ فإنَّ الهِجرَةَ لا تَنقَطِعُ ما دامَ الجِهادُ.
1– The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘O people, migrate and hold on to Islam, for migration does not stop as long as struggle exists.’
[Kanz al-`Ummal, no. 4626]

2ـ رسولُ اللهِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): الهِجرَةُ هِجرَتانِ: إحداهُما أن تَهجُرَ السَّيّئاتِ، والاُخرى أن تُهاجِرَ إلَى اللّه‏ِ تعالى ورَسولِهِ، ولا تَنقَطِعُ الهِجرَةُ ما تُقُبِّلَتِ التَّوبَةُ.
2– The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘There are two migrations: one of them is that you migrate away from bad deeds, and the other one is your migration to Allah Almighty and His Messenger, and migration does not stop as long as repentance is accepted.’
[Kanz al-`Ummal, no. 46262]



3ـ الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): الهِجرَةُ قائمَةٌ على حَدِّها الأوَّلِ، ماكانَ للّه‏ِ في أهلِ الأرضِ حاجَةٌ مِن مُستَسَرِّ الاُمَّةِ ومُعلَنِها، لا يَقَعُ اسمُ الهِجرَةِ على أحَدٍ (إلّا) بمَعرِفَةِ الحُجَّةِ في الأرضِ، فمَن عَرَفَها وأقَرَّ بها فهُو مُهاجِرٌ، ولا يَقَعُ اسمُ الاستِضعافِ على مَن بَلَغَتهُ الحُجَّةُ فسَمِعَتها اُذُنُهُ ووَعاها قَلبُهُ.
3– Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Migration stands at its original position. Allah has no need of him who secretly accepts belief or him who openly does so. Migration will not apply to anyone unless he recognises the proof
[of Allah] on the earth. Whoever recognises him and acknowledges him is a migrant. The title ‘weak’
[This refers to those who are incapacitated, or whom the proof and message of Allah has actually not reached, and thus are not empowered to act (ed.)] does not apply to him whom the proof
[of Allah] has reached, and he hears it and his heart comprehends it.’
[Nahj al-Balagha, Sermon 189]

4ـ الإمامُ الباقرُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): مَن دَخَلَ في الإسلامِ طَوعاً فهُو مُهاجِرٌ.
4– Imam al-Baqir (AS) said, ‘He who willingly enters Islam is a migrant.’
[al-Kafi, v. 8, p. 148, no. 126]

أفضَلُ الهِجرَةِ / The Best Migration

5ـ رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): أفضَلُ الهِجرَةِ أن ‏تَهجُرَ ما كَرِهَ اللّه‏ُ.
5– The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘The best migration is that you abandon all that Allah hates.’
[Kanz al-`Ummal, no. 46263]

6ـ رسولُ اللهِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): أفضَلُ الهِجرَةِ أن تَهجُرَ السُّوءَ.
6– The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘The best migration is that you abandon all bad.’
[Kanz al-`Ummal, no. 46264]

7ـ رسولُ اللهِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): المُهاجِرُ مَن هَجَرَ الخَطايا والذُّنوبَ.
7– The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘A migrant is someone who migrates from wrongs and sins.’
[Kanz al-`Ummal, no. 676]

الهِجرَةُ عَن بِلادِ أهلِ المَعاصي / Migrating from Places
[Populated with] Sinners

8ـ رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): مَن فَرَّ بدِينِهِ مِن أرضٍ إلى أرضٍ وإن كانَ شِبراً مِن الأرضِ، استَوجَبَ الجَنّةَ وكانَ رَفيقَ إبراهيمَ ومحمّدٍ .
8– The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘Whoever flees with their religion from one place to another, even if it was the distance of a hand’s span of the earth, Heaven becomes obligatory for him and he will be in the company of Abraham and Muhammad (AS).’
[Majma`a al-Bayan, v. 3, p. 153]

9ـ الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ فيقولِهِ تعالى: «يا عِباديَ الّذِينَ آمَنوا إنَّ اَرضي ...» ـ: إذا عُصِيَ اللّه‏ُ في أرضٍ أنتَ فيها فاخرُجْ مِنها إلى غَيرِها.
9– Imam al-Sadiq (AS), with regard to Allah’s verse in the Qur’an: "O My servants who have faith! My earth is indeed vast. So worship
[only] Me", said, ‘When Allah is disobeyed in a place that you are in, leave it and go somewhere else.’
[Majma`a al-Bayan, v. 8, p. 455]

النَّهيُ عَنِ التَّعرُّبِ بَعدَ الهِجرَةِ / Prohibition of Returning to
[a State of] Renegation after Having Migrated
[to Belief] (al-ta`aarrub ba`ad al-hijra)

10ـ رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ) ـ في وصيَّتِهِ لعليٍّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ: لا تَعَرُّبَ بَعدَ الهِجرَةِ .
10– The Prophet (SAWA), in his will to Ali (AS) said, ‘There is no regeneration after migration.’
[Wasa’il al-Shi'a, v. 11, p. 75, no. 1]

11ـ رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): إنّـي بَـريءٌ مِن كُلِّ مُسلِمٍ نَزَلَ مَع مُشرِكٍ في دارِ الحَربِ .
11– The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘I disassociate myself from any Muslim who lives with a polytheist in a place of war
[with the enemy].’
[Nawadir al-Rawandi, p. 23]

12ـ الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): المُتَعَرِّبُ بَعدَ الهِجرَةِ التّارِكُ لهذا الأمرِ بَعدَ مَعرِفَتِهِ.
12– Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, ‘The one who returns to a state of renegation after migration
[to belief] is one who abandons this affair
[of Islam] after having acknowledged it.’
[Ma`ani al-Akhbar, p. 265]

13ـ الإمامُ الرِّضا (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): حَرَّمَ اللّه‏ُ التَّعَرُّبَ بَعدَ الهِجرَةِ للرُّجوعِ عَنِ الدِّينِ وتَركِ المُوازَرَةِ للأنبياءِ والحُجَجِ ^، وما في ذلِكَ مِن الفَسادِ وإبطالِ حَقِّ كُلِّ ذي حَقٍّ لِعِلَّةِ سُكنَى البَدوِ؛ ولذلكَ لَو عَرَفَ الرّجُلُ الدِّينَ كامِلاً لَم يَجُزْ لَهُ مُساكَنَةُ أهلِ الجَهلِ، والخَوفِ علَيهِ؛ لأنّهُ لا يُؤمَنُ أن يَقَعَ مِنهُ تَركُ العِلمِ، والدُّخولُ مَع أهلِ الجَهلِ والتَّمادِي في ذلكَ.
13– Imam al-Rida (AS) said, ‘Allah has prohibited renegation after migration
[to belief] because of
[the danger] of denouncing one’s religion and leaving the support of the prophets and the divine proofs (AS), and the corruption that would ensue, the nullification of the rights of all those who hold rights
[in religion], especially for bedouins. This is why, if a man were to have acknowledged religion completely, it is not allowed for him to go and live with people who are ignorant
[or in disbelief] of it, and as a result of fear for him, for he can never be safe from falling from his position of knowledge and re-entering into ignorance and remaining therein.’
[Wasael al-Shi`aah , v. 11, p. 75, no. 2]
