Hijrah Q/A

 

As salaamu ‘alaikum…………
10. Question: A sister asks about making Hijrah alone. 

Answer: If her presence in that land is a fitnah (trial) for her and she is afraid for her Deen i.e. she is afraid from turning away from her Deen. Then if she is able to travel with some virtuous women who have their mahaarim with them then I pray that there is no problem in doing so. Allaah تعالى will make it easy for her according to her intention.

18. Question: A sister’s ex-husband does not pray and never prayed in their entire married life. She has two daughters with him and he forbids them to pray and instead teaches them bad manners like celebrating the birthdays. She is now re-married and would like to make hijrah but is not yet able to do so. What is best for her and her husband to do? Should she fight for her daughters until she has custody? 

Answer: If this woman and her husband are able to practice their religion and show (manifest) the religion then maybe in their staying she will be able to free her two daughters from this bad man, in this case staying would be better for them. However, if the opposite is feared i.e. she fears fitnah for herself and her husband in staying, then it is better for them to make hijrah and Allaah تعالى will take care of her two daughters Inshaa Allaahu تعالى.
