THE MIGRATION
In the name of allah...

Assalamu alaikkum varah...

The Prophet (peace be upon him) and his companions were banished from their native land, because They were steadfast to the True Principles of Islam. They took asylum in Madinah.

Many People in Madinah had heard of the preaching of the Messenger of God much before the Prophet (peace be upon him) came to Madinah and they had visited him at Makkah and embraced Islam.

They also had assured the Prophet (peace be upon him), “ If ever you are compelled to emigrate from your city, please come to Madinah we will protect you even at the cost of our lives.” That’s why the Prophet (peace be upon him) selected Madinah for asylum. Along with him, a great number of Muslims had taken shelter in Madinah as fugitives. He had put forth a plan; every citizen of Madinah should adopt one of the refugees as one’s brother or sister.

The good people of Madinah did accept the fugitives as their brothers and sisters. They extended their courtesy to such an incredible extent that they offered part of their business, groves, clothes, and households to their brothers-in-principle...

They received the name Ansar (helper) as there was none parallel to them in providing refuge and caring to their brothers in Islam. We just recalled this historical event so that it becomes easier to understand the incident regarding Salman and Abu Dhardha.

Salman belonged to Persia. Abu Dhardha was native of Madinah. Abu Dhardha had come to the Prophet (peace be upon him) to embrace Islam after he heard about the preaching of the Prophet (peace be upon him). The Prophet (peace be upon him) had appointed Salman as Abu Dhardha’s brother.

Abu Dhardha became over enthusiastic in religion. He spent the whole night in prayer wanting to be totally devoted to the principles of the Prophet (peace be upon him) wholesome but he failed to carry out the duties due to his wife and started fasting every day without fail. Salman became strict with Abu Dhardha only when he learned that he had boycotted sexual relationship with his wife. Salman stops him from such extremity.

When this matter was finally reported to the Prophet (peace be upon him), he justified Salman’s act saying just in one line; what Salman said is correct.

The God’s apostle found that a group had resolved to follow his religion and his tradition in total blindness. This did not satisfy him. He was not happy about it. Neither he appreciated Abu Dhardha for his extremity nor did he encourage others to behave like Abu. His follower’s enthusiasm to follow the Prophet’s tradition should not hinder them from doing their duties to their wives, family and children and to their own eyes and bodies. Thus the Messenger of God cleared the ignorance out of Abu Dhardha.

If the Messenger of God had any other aim, he would have in fact encourage people like Abu Dhardha. He would have gained instant fame and publicity. He never failed to go in search of such extremists to advise them and salvage them out of ignorance.

Abdhulla Bin Amru bin Aas says.

God’s Apostle said to me, “O ‘Abdullah! Have you not been informed that you fast during the day and offer prayers all the night.” ‘Abdullah (May God be pleased with his deeds) replied, “Yes, O God’s Apostle!” The Prophet said, “Don’t do that; fast for few days and then give it up for few days, offer prayers and also sleep at night, as your body has a right on you, and your wife has a right on you, and your guest has a right on you. And it is sufficient for you to fast three days in a month, as the reward of a good deed is multiplied ten times, so it will be like fasting throughout the year.” I insisted (on fasting) and so I was given a hard instruction. I said, “O God’s Apostle! I have power.” The Prophet said, “Fast like the fasting of the Prophet David and do not fast more than that.” I said, “How was the fasting of the Prophet of God, David?” He said, “Half of the year,” (i.e. he used to fast on every alternate day). Afterwards when ‘Abdullah became old, he used to say, “It would have been better for me if I had accepted the permission of the Prophet (which he gave me i.e. to fast only three days a month).”Buhari: 3.196
