  • Prohibition For Muslims Settling In Non-Muslim Countries

    On the basis of the following verse of Quran and Ahadith could we utter that settling in A non muslim country is not permissible. What is Sir Ghamidis View on that.


    Allah SWT says ‘To those whom the angels gather in death while they are still wronging themselves, the angels will say: “What were you doing?” They will answer: “We were oppressed on earth”. (The angels) will say: “Was not God’s earth so spacious that you might have migrated to settle elsewhere?” Such will have their abode in Hell, a certainly evil end.’

    (4: 97)

    The Prophet says:

    ‘I disown any Muslim who lives among the idolaters.’

    (Related by Abu Dawud, hadith No. 2,645)

    The Prophet also said to someone:

    ‘I will accept your pledge that commits you to worship God alone, to attend regularly to your prayers, to pay the zakat, offer good advice to Muslims and part with the unbelievers.’

    (Related by al-Nassa’i, hadith No. 4,177)

    Where Muslims are oppressed for their religion, not for some worldly or political reasons, and they are not allowed to perform their religious duties, they are obliged to migrate from that place if it is possible for them, if not, then have to stay there with patience and perseverance. This is the general rule. However, there was a special case and law of Risaalat, which is not general, according to which Muslims in the time of the prophets were obliged to part with the polytheists as the polytheists were going to be annihilated after Itmam ul Hjujjah (completion of proof) as it has been the case with the disbelievers of every Rasool when they deliberately and arrogantly chose to deny after the hujjah is completed and they had no excuse. For the last time, this sunnah of Allah took place in the peninsula of Arabia in the time of the last prophet. So this law is not applicable to other people of other lands and times. for details of this law follow the following thread.
