Today, Sunday, the Sufi orders, headed by Sheikh Dr. Abdel Hadi Al-Qasabi, celebrated the occasion of the migration of the Prophet, in the presence of Dr. Osama Al-Azhari, Minister of Endowments, Dr. Shawqi, Egypt's Grand Muftit, and members of the Supreme Council of Sufi Orders.

The celebration included a procession from Sidi Saleh Al-Jaafari Mosque to Al-Imam Al-Hussein Mosque. The celebration began inside Al- Imam Al-Hussein Mosque with a recitation of the Holy Quran, some words from the distinguished scholars about the lessons learned fromthe migration of the Prophet.

The word Hijra and its derivatives are mentioned in many verses of the Quran. The majority of these verses contain praises and promise rewards to those who emigrated for the cause of God and to those who aided them.

The emigrants are given the highest honor and praise for having made a great sacrifice in the cause of God. He says, “And those who emigrated for [the cause of] God after they had been wronged - We will surely settle them in this world in a good place; but the reward of the Hereafter is greater, if only they could know” (Quran 16:41).

God the Almighty promises those who leave their homes for His sake a mercy specially from Himself, His good pleasure, gardens of eternal delight and the ultimate reward of Divine propinquity. It is due to sacrificing one’s own kith and kin, wealth and property, businesses and homeland as well as everything that proves to be a hindrance in God’s cause that one earns the ultimate reward. God says, “The ones who have believed, emigrated and striven in the cause of God with their wealth and their lives are greater in rank in the sight of God. And it is those who are the attainers [of success]. Their Lord gives them good tidings of mercy from Him and approval and of gardens for them wherein is enduring pleasure. [They will be] abiding therein forever. Indeed, God has with Him a great reward. O you who have believed, do not take your fathers or your brothers as allies if they have preferred disbelief over belief. And whoever does so among you - then it is those who are the wrongdoers” (Quran 9:20-22).
