The Hijra before the Jihad! The Secret Muslim doctrine of Migration

Screen Capture from: http://www.islamicstudies.info/tafheem.php?sura=4&verse=97

Today thousands of Muslims are answering a call to immigrate to non-Muslim lands. According to the Department of Homeland Security, of the 70,000 refugees granted asylum in the USA in 2013 “the leading countries of nationality for refugee admissions were Iraq (28 percent), Burma (23 percent), Bhutan (13 percent), and Somalia (11 percent). Seventy-five percent [75%] of refugee admissions in 2013 were from these four countries”  (Martin & Yankay, 2014). If we accept that the vast majority of those living in these countries are Muslim, then 70% of 70,000 translates into 49,000 Muslims migrated to America in 2013.  
President Obama brought in 84,995 refugees in for the Fiscal Year 2016, of which four of the top five countries are Syria, Iraq, Burma and, Somalia all are predominantly Muslims.[1] For the fiscal year 2017 President Obama boosted the Refugee Resettlement Program for a 57% increase.[2] Ann Corcoran of the Refugee Resettlement Watch noted that 98% of the Syrian refugees in the first few months of the fiscal year 2017, were Muslim.[3] This begs the question as to how they are qualifying as refugees since the definition of Refugee includes the requirement of being persecuted.
This says nothing of the massive Islamic migration into Europe. Millions of Islamic migrants are entering Europe from Northern Africa to Afghanistan. Some countries like Denmark and Sweden are now concerned that their own native population will be outnumbered in as little as 20 years. Why is this happening? Isn’t it Haram (forbidden) for a Muslim to move to a non-Muslim land?
Islam Q and A recently answered: Can Muslims settle in kaafir countries for the sake of a better life?[4] Part of the answer stated that:

In the Sunnah, the Prophet (PBUH) said: “I disown every Muslim who settles among the mushrikeen” [non-Muslims]. (Narrated by Abu Dawood, 2645; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.)[5]

According to this manner of thought living in Dar al-Harb is not only wrong for Muslims it was not acceptable to live in non-Islamic communities in Muslim lands, according to their prophet. However, the author of this document does make an exception.

Rather we should say that each Muslim has his own unique set of circumstances and his own ruling that applies to him, and each person is accountable for himself. If he is able to practise his religion in the Muslim country in which he lives more than he can in a kaafir country, then it is not permissible for him to settle in a kaafir country. 

But if it is the other way round, then it is permissible for him to settle in a kaafir country, subject to the condition that he is confident that he can resist the desires and temptations to be found there by taking the precautionary measures prescribed in sharee’ah. 
Zakariya al-Ansaari al-Shaafa’i said in his book Asna al-Mataalib (4/207): 
It is obligatory to migrate from the kaafir lands to the Muslim lands for those who are able to do that, if they are unable to practise their religion openly.”[6]

So why are Muslims coming to non-Muslim countries, what they call Dar al-Harb if it is forbidden? Is this merely a smoke screen? Are these very words quoted above only for a select few? It makes little sense that they could not practice what they believe in an Islamic country. Or is this a screening out policy? A doctrinal statement that insists Muslims not strong in their faith must stay in an Islamic country. What then of those who hold their Islamic faith with strength?
Keep in mind that Muslims practice taqiyyah, lying to protect their faith. If they think it is not advantageous to the spreading of Islam, they will lie or obfuscate the truth. Since we cannot trust a Muslim to tell the truth on al-hijrah, we must rely on what the Islamic scriptures state.
According to Hadith no. 2863 Kitab al Amthael reported by Timri, also reported by Imam Ahmed Ibn Hanbel as Hadith no 17344 Mohammad said:

I charge you five of what Allah has charged me with: to assemble, to listen, to obey, to immigrate and to wage jihad for the sake Allah.

According to this wording it is implied that migration for the purpose of jihad is not only Ok, it is commissioned by the prophet of Islam. But is this the only citation of such a statement?

·         Sura 2:218  “Surely those who believed and those who emigrated and performed jihad.”
·         Sura 8:72    “Surely those who believed and those who emigrated and performed jihad with their money and their lives for the sake Allah, and those who gave asylum…” 
·         Sura 8:74    “And those who believed and emigrated and performed jihad for the sake of Allah, and those who gave asylum and help [gave you victory], those are the true believers, they will receive forgiveness and generous provisions. 
·          Sura 8:75   ““And those who believed afterward and emigrated and performed jihad with you, so those are of you.

Some of the Hadiths appear to contradict each other. In one record it appears that Muhammad had no further intentions to migrate after taking Mecca:

'A'isha reported that the Messenger of Allah () was asked about migration, whereupon he said: There is no migration after the Conquest (of Mecca), but Jihad and sincere intention. When you are asked to set out (for the cause of Islam), you should set out, (Sahih Muslim 1864,  Book 20, Hadith 4599)

Notice the mention of jihad. Aisha’s comment here implies that Muslims MUST set out (migrate) for the purpose of jihad only. This agrees with:

Narrated Mu'awiyah: I heard the Messenger of Allah say: Migration will not end until repentance ends, and repentance will not end until the sun rises in the west. (Sunan Abi Dawud 2479, Book 14, Hadith 2473)

Clearly the meaning of “until repentance ends” means when all have turned to Allah. Migration it seems then is for the purpose of jihad alone. 
As you can see the Hadiths and the Koran provides several examples that the purpose of migration (al-Hijrah) is to accomplish jihad. Shouldn’t Western governments be aware of this? Why aren’t they? The US government spends hundreds of millions of dollars researching “violent extremism” trying to determine why some persons become terrorists. They refuse to identify the enemy. Doing this would mean Universities would not receive millions in research funding and using the knowledge that had been provided and taught at the Pentagon prior to Barak Obama becoming President of the United States.
So what does history tell us? If historians start with the koranic verses at the beginning of this chapter it is clear that migration (hijrah) is an Islamic doctrine and can be a requirement placed upon Muslims in certain areas.
Muhammad Khalid Masud wrote “The obligation to migrate: the doctrine of hijra in Islamic law” which is a chapter in Muslim Travellers edited by Dale Eickelman and James Piscatori in 1990. Masud states:

From the Qur’anic texts the following significant points about hijra can be inferred: (1) It was an obligation of physical movement towards self-definition in the nascent Muslim society; (2) hijra was closely associated with jihad; and (3) hijra established a bond of relationship among Muslims, particularly with the ansar.[7]

Masud’s point on hijra being closely associated with jihad has great significance because what is defined today as Islamic terrorism is often classified as Islamic jihad (holy war) against non-Muslims. Masud did share that there were differing opinions by scholar on whether hijra  remained obligatory and shared those who do not consider it obligatory, believed that after the death of their prophet Muhammad hijra ended. But according to Masud, many scholars considered it an important and relevant teaching.

Abu Sulayman Hamid b. Muhammad Khattabi al-Busti (AD 931-96/9), a scholar of hadith, … argued that hijra was actually meant to support and strengthen dar al-Islam in its nascent days. After the conquests dar al-Islam was so strong and established that migration was no longer required. The hijra would be required again only and whenever the conditions so demanded (Ibn Hajar 1959; vi, 378)[8]

            Masud uses a quick historical examination of the time period of the first few Caliphs to look at the truth of this matter. Masud notes that in the cases of opposing Muslim groups (631-632 AD) justified their war, “most often the ruling group in the centre  - in terms of jihad. It was therefore necessary to strengthen their camp by asking their followers to migrate from enemy territories.”[9]

Masud provides the example of the Khawarij who justified their jihad and hijra by stating:
all territories were dar al-kufr until they were brought into the fold of Islam. A territory could turn again into dar al-kufr if its rulers denied the sovereignty of Allah, or committed a major sin, whereby they became kafirs. In these circumstances, hijra from such a territory and jihad against it become obligatory.[10]

This created reasoning for one group of Muslims to declare an opposing Muslim group as mushriks (polytheists), justifying a hijra for the purposes of strengthening their camp before a jihad. William Hunter recorded such events in his book The Indian Musulmans in 1872. 
But even under President George W. Bush there was censorship on this topic and a refusal to accept what Islamic terrorists were telling us is actually part of Islam.
One of the Imams of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, 9.3 miles from Washington, DC was working for Al-Qaeda, Anwar Awlaki. He left the country knowing he was about to be taken into custody in 2002. His involvement in terror plots in the United States including 9/11/2001 and the Fort Hood Massacre are unquestionable. His video messages to the younger generations of Muslims around the world earned him a death by Hellfire missile approved by President Obama. In 2010, Awlaki said this about hijra:

To the Muslims in America I have this to say:
How can your conscience allow you to live in peaceful coexistence with a nation that is responsible for the tyranny and crimes committed against your own brothers and sisters? How can you have loyalty to a government that is leading the war against Islam and Muslims?
Hence, my advice to you is this: you have two choices: either hijra [migration] or jihad. You either leave or you fight. You leave and live among Musims or you stay behind and fight with your hand, your wealth and your word. I specifically invite the youth to join our brothers in the fronts of jihad: Afghanistan, Iraq, and Somalia.[11]

How can we ignore the purpose of hijra (Islamic migration) is jihad?
Good men such as (Retired) Major Stephen Coughlin and Dr. William Bradford were teaching the truth of what Islam teaches about hijra, jihad and, terror. They were removed from their posts because the knowledge they were sharing would help protect America! So, today no education occurs and, no training material exist in the alphabet soup of defense and national security agencies to protect the American people. This leaves America defenseless at least until Trump becomes the President! Why?
Careful thought in this would go back to the first large amount of Muslims coming to America in 1962. Did they come for the purpose of jihad? This would account for the founders of the North American Muslim Brotherhood. It would also explain their usage of the term “civilization jihad” in 1991 when they defined their goals. It directs the Muslim migrant who came for jihad, on how to pursue that goal.

            4- Understanding the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America:
The process of settlement is a "Civilization-Jihadist Process" with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim's destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who choose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.[12]

    If Muslims coming here would have the purpose of civilization jihad, you would expect them to do so strategically. Using something like this:
  • Start by infiltrating colleges for the purpose of changing what we teach about Islamic history.
  • Move to influencing/controlling what is put in textbooks and taught in public schools.
  • Attempt to make American culture conform to sharia in general society.
  • Attempt to infiltrate every level of government.

My last book Civilization Jihad and the Myth of Moderate Islam covers this in depth. You can also find updated articles since the publishing of the book listing persons in government positions and federal financing of Islamists on my blog at http://paulsutliff.blogspot.com if you wish to learn more on this topic. .
If the American people do not wake up and act soon, they will cease to be the land of the free and become the land of submission to Islam. This is sadly more of a possible reality with the current President Barak Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch masking references to Islam by the terrorist in the Orlando attack on the gay club, to protect Muslims.[13]
As the history of Muslim migration shows in the pages that follow, Hijrah before jihad is a long followed doctrine.
