Episode 58: Muharram, Hijra and the birth of the Islamic State - Br Soadad Doureihi

Muharram, the new year, a pledge, and the significance of the Hijri migration.
Being in the blessed month of Muharram (1443AH), let us reflect on its significance of being chosen as the beginning of the Islamic calendar.
 
- The beginning of the Islamic Calendar was adopted during the rule of Umar (ra). When the lands began to expand so far, they needed a reference time when he began to issue written orders to his governors. Ie. Abu Musa al-Ashary (ra) complained that Umar's letters needed to be dated.
 
- A second reason for initiating the Hijri date was when a complaint over a debt reached Umar (ra). They knew the month but were confused over the year, so Umar decided to introduce the calendar.
 
- After consulting with the companions, they agreed that the Hijri migration should be the starting point.
 
- The reason Hijrah (migration) was chosen over other significant Islamic events was because it was considered the most essential event that established the Islamic nation and separated between truth and evil.

A subject shrouded in mystery or disdain. Whatever the justification, we are told to avoid it, dislike it or ignore it. The few times we do engage in politics, it seems to only make it worse.
 
❓But what is Islam's position on politics?
❓Does it occupy a natural place within the Islamic tradition?
❓Is it possible to confront the challenges the Ummah face without it?

April 10, 2021

Today's podcast is on the life of the 3rd Sahaba r.a. mentioned in the hadith of glad tidings of paradise and the 3rd Khalifah of Islam, Uthman ibn Affan r.a.

We all know about him r.a. as shy and handsome person. However, not much has been talked about his achievements as Khalifah and his steadfasntness when it came to impelemting Islam comprehensively in the land. This aspect of his life seems to be pale in comparison with that of previous two Khulafah, Abu Bakar r.a. and Umar r.a., but in reality it is not. It is equally important and is to be learnt by all muslims on this earth.

We all know Umar r.a as a strong built tall man having firm head on his shoulder, short tempered and being a good wrestler. We also know how he came about embracing Islam. However, what is not very widespread is his upbringing, his attitude towards muslims before embracing Islam, his very kind hearted nature behind his strong personality and his achievements as a Khalifah.

In this podcast listen to Br Mohamed Trad dig briefly into the Seerah of Umar r.a. and touch upon all the above mentioned aspects of his life.
