Allah also says:
"And say: O My Lord let my entry be by the gate of truth and like wise let my exit be by the gate of truth and grant me from your side an authority to help me." (17:80)
Similarly in Surah Anfaal there are some references to the Hijrav.
"Remember how the unbelievers plotted against you, to keep you in bonds, or slay you or get you out (of your homes). They plot and plan and Allah (SWT) plans too But the best of planner is Allah" (8:30)
Similarly in Surah Towbah there is mention of the Hijrat together with the high rank of Hazrat Abu Bakr (Ra):
"If you help not (your leader) (it is no matter) for Allah (SWT) did indeed help him when the unbelievers drove him out, he had no more than one companion. They two were in the cave and he said to his companion:
Have no sorrow or grief, for Allah is with us Then Allah (SWT) sent down his peace upon him and strengthened him with forces which you saw not and humbled to the depths, the word of the unbelievers, but the word of Allah is exalted to the heights for Allah is Exalted in Might, Wise." (9:40)
In Islam Hijrat is a very important obligation. We all know who beloved one's home land, his possessions, his family and household are to any person. One looks upon these things as the means towards one’s worldly comforts and the means towards living one's life. However in man’s life there is a greater aim and that is to acquire the Ma'rifat of Allah (SWT) (Knowledge) and to serve Him which is called 'Deeri or 'Millat. When however the situation be comes so serious that he is not allowed to practice this Been as he wishes, he sometimes becomes prepared to put aside all those worldly possessions, family and household together with his homeland in order to move to such a place where he can practise it. This is what is called 'Hijra?
The Qur’an has on various stages referred to the importance of hijrat especially in the following places: 2/ 218, 3/194, 8/74, 9/20, 12/111, 23/58, 4/100, 12/41, 4/97.
