Sunday 10 Thu al-Hijjah 1445 - 16 June 2024

Is hijrah obligatory for those who feel vulnerable in their religion?


If a person is vulnerable and cannot feel safe from temptation in his country, is hijrah obligatory on the Muslim in this case, and to where should he migrate?


Praise be to Allah.

If the situation is as you describe, and a Muslim feels vulnerable with regard to himself and his religious commitment in the face of temptations in his own country, then it is prescribed for him to migrate – if he can – to a land where he will feel safe.

And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions, and grant them peace.
