THE MESSAGES OF HIJRAH — HERE AND NOW
Imam Dr. Zijad Delic

The season of Hajj signifies a time of forgiveness, mercy, sacrifice, commitment and renewed opportunities for unity among all Muslims. The new Muslim Hijri year of 1441 starts on Friday, August 30th. The new Hijri year brings together Canadian Muslims with the international Muslim family (Ummah) to recall the Prophet’s Hijrah (migration) from Makkah to Madinah (Medina). The Hijrah has an historical perspective, but Muslims have always been encouraged to contemplate Hijrah on a far deeper level. Hijrah is based on the philosophy to provide solutions to our problems and to find ways to restore our integrity today – here in Canada. From early times to our current era, concretely and conceptually, the Hijrah provides a source of renewal and betterment for individuals and societies. It is imagined as a running river along the continuum of history to enable believers to quench their spiritual thirst and to bridge the gap between past and present. The Hijrah guides believers to make the best choices about life in current situations.
Muslims contemplate the lessons of the great event that changed the face of the world. It asks the Creator to bestow mercy and peace on our community, our society and the global village. Muslims compare the strong and enlightened state following the original Hijrah to the new and less-certain realities of today. It is through Hijrah that Muslims derive the impetus to work for the betterment of the global Ummah and the human family despite the divisions and lost potential that mark so much of the Ummah and the entire world today. Why? The Hijrah for the early Muslims was a turning point in the history of Islam. It is often said that it was simply a flight from persecution but it is rather a separation of believers from Jahiliyyah (ignorance), Zulm (oppression), Fahishah (immorality) etc. It is a reorientation towards the new light – the Noorullah (the light of God).
In history Muslims were transformed from a state of weakness and instability into the state of stability, from the state of oppression to the establishment of a just system enjoyed by all who lived in it. The Hijrah has a direct bearing on the purpose Muslims have here in Canada. As Canadian Muslims, we are obliged always to strive towards the highest ideals and values: to realize our religious identity, our place as faithful citizens in our Canada, and to make use of all opportunities to help ourselves, this beautiful country, and the world. All Muslims must take part in the Hijrah as a continuing process the aim of which is a collective Hijrah to move towards the “new Madinah” – to a more spiritual and ethical way of life in all things. God has given us a precious opportunity to establish ourselves in Canada so that we can live in peace, harmony, and kinship, sharing the message of our faith and values with others as did Muhammad (S) the Messenger in Madinah.
Are there messages of the Hijrah for the Contemporary Muhajir (emigrant)? What can be learned today from this pivotal event in Muslim history? The Hijrah institutionalized important aspects of life: the social/religious — religious identity; the economic dimension by alleviating material needs; the political dimension concerning freedom of religion and human rights. Identity is as a complete way of life for every moment of one’s conscious time.
People are able to see social Islam. In Canada the economic aspect of helping emigrants is born out of love for new brothers and sisters. The Hijrah offers a new direction towards justice for all. The lessons gained from Hijrah include the assertion of a unique identity which is able to coexist with all other people in Canadian society, and the refusal to live indefinitely as a misunderstood religion resulting in an injustice to Muslims and to society and the world. Muslims are to live as a model of interaction and co-existence with all Canadian Muslims and with other non-Muslim communities on the basis of the common good. It is with the help of our sisters and brothers in the whole of humanity that we could make Canada – our home – the world’s best role model for social and cultural health.
