        As if  Waraqa’s eternal words still sounded all the time, life grew more and more impossible for Mohammad and his followers in Makkah. When his followers complained that they were persecuted, he permitted them to emigrate to Yathrib,  later known as Madinah. Whenever Abu Bakr asked for such a permission,  the prophet said to him, “Be patient, Allah may select a fellow mate- traveller.” The prophet meant himself by these words. So the epic journey began.  No one would notice a couple of Arabs being chased by their fellow clan people. But this journey made history really. It was the most important event in the history of Islam. Without it, Islam would have been strangled and buried at its birth place and cradle of Makkah. Without it, Islam wouldn’t have spread or set up a flourishing state, stretching from China to the Atlantic coasts in Morrocco and West Africa. As his habit was, the prophet planned for the journey very well. He chose the right time, just as the Quraish were plotting to kill him. He chose and hired a well versed guide for the mission. He chose the closest friend and companion to accompany him on the way. He used camouflages, to disable the Quraish to follow him. However, he left Ali ibn Abi Talib to sleep in his bed, and stay behind to return the entrusted money and things of the Quraish, which they left with him as assets.

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
