When the Prophet (peace be upon him) commenced his mission in Makkah as a Prophet, both he and those who answered his call have been subject to great persecution and torture at the hands of the polytheists of Makkah.
Thus, those Muslims had to flee their home city to other places where they can get a space of freedom to practice the rituals of their religion without obstruction. They migrated to Yathrib (later it was named Madinah) where its people offered to host the Prophet and his followers at their lands. It was a turning point in history and later it represented the cornerstone of the Muslim state to come.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) laid down significant bases for the Muslim community to manage its life. Among the social rules set by Prophet Muhammad was the brotherhood between the Muslim migrants of Mecca and the Muslims of Medina. It was about an unprecedented connection which people did not know before.
Regarding this new concept, Sheikh Assim Al-Hakeem, talks about its meaning and application following the migration of Prophet Muhammad and Muslims to Madinah. The Sheikh explains to us the greatest sacrifices and generosity on behalf of the Muslims of Medina towards their Muslim brothers from Mecca.
