The Immigration to Habasha

One night the Muslims met Allah's Apostle. He was sad to hear that the Muslims were suffering from torture So, he said to them: There's a just King in Habasha. Immigrate to his country. Stay there till Allah drives away your worries.

The idea of immigration shone in the believers' hearts as the sun shone to fill the earth with light and warmth. At midnight, a small group crept into the land of Habasha (Ethiopia), via the Red Sea. The Muslim immigrants stayed there. In the meantime, the Quraish increased their torture against the Muslims who stayed in Makkah. So, they were in a fix. At that critical time, our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) ordered his cousin Ja'far to lead a bigger group of Muslims to Habasha. The number of the new group was over 80 Muslims. Ja'far began leading the immigrating caravan towards the coasts of the sea. The sea was calm. The wind was gentle. The immigrants reached the coasts of the sea. Allah, the Almighty, wanted a ship to pass by them. The ship was going from Jeddah to Habasha. Ja'far asked her Captain to take them there. The Captain accepted. The ship set out plowing the sea. The Muslims thanked Allah, who turned their fear into safety to worship Him only. Ja'far himself was visiting the immigrants, especially the children. His wife Asmaa bint Umayys was visiting the women. Days and nights passed. The ship anchored at the coasts of Habasha. The Muslims reached the land where our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) had ordered them to immigrate. The Muslims were always praying to Allah freely. No one prevented them from that. During their prayers, they were always asking Allah to grant our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) and his Muslim brothers victory over the unjust Quraishi tyrants. But the news that reached them was sorrowful. Yasir and Summayyah became martyrs under torture. They were in pain to hear about the torture that was happening to their brothers. But they firmly increased their belief.
