From the point of language, migration means moving from one place to another or changing from one state to the other conditions. From the point of the term, the migration was to leave something that is prohibited. This is based on the hadith of 'Abdullah bin Habsyi, that the Prophet said, "People who migrate are those who left what is forbidden by God." (Hadith narrated by Abu Dawud)
In a broader meaning, migration is understood as the transfer of a bad situation into a better situation. For example, contrary to the teachings of Islam to leave and return to true Islam. Basically, the Hijrah was not only happening to the Prophet Muhammad but also done by the other prophets of Allah. For example, God commanded Nabi Ibrahim to migrate to a different place as his word the Quran that says: "After the Prophet Lut believed in Him and He said: 'I want to migrate to the Lord, He is the Exalted in Power, the Wise. "(Surah al-Ankabut, verse 26).
In addition, Nabi Musa was also ordered to emigrate because of the threat of murder against him. Many verses in the Quran that explains the Hijrah of the Prophet Moses to the place of Midian, on the recommendation of a man who knows on death conspiracy against Moses. In addition to Abraham, Moses, Noah is commanded to migrate because of floods will occur.
However, in the context of today, emigration, which is celebrated every year to commemorate the event was more migration of the Prophet and his al-Mukarramah Mecca to Medina al-Munawwarah. The migration events reveals a struggle that 'abstinence surrender or give up' while it becomes the dividing line between truth and falsehood. It is also viewed as a bridge between the two stages of the struggle of the Prophet, the first in Mecca for 13 years, and second, in Medina for 10 years.
This means that the Prophet migrated not to run or leave the field of struggle, but continue the struggle. In fact, migration to give hope and imagine the future success of the struggle. Hence, migration is a very significant pillars of the struggle. AH is also the dawn of victory by winning the struggle to determine the victory of the Prophet. The Prophet and the companions migrated from Mecca to Medina in order to answer the call and faith.
