HOLY PROPHET MIGRATE TO MEDINA?
ALLAH sent the Holy Prophet (PBUH) as a last and Final Messenger to the humans, who will come to earth until the Day of Judgment. He was born in Mecca in (571 AD) and belonged to the famous tribe of Quraysh. He was famous for his honesty and truthfulness and was a professional merchant.
Because of her honesty, Hazrat Khadijah (R.A) was offered to work for her, was a very wealthy woman at that time and, after her husband died, took over her business. Then, after a while, he married Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), he was 40 years old and he was only 25 years old. And people still visit the land of Saudi Arabia with the Hajj and Umrah Package 2018-2019 with a 3-star hotel and shows their love for Him.

When the preaching of Islam began, he faced many problems and after a while, Hazrat Khadijah (R.A) and his uncle, Abu Talib, passed away. A delegation from Medina came to the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and invited him to serve as the chief arbiter of the entire community. This time, Medina was known as a Yathrib and the Arabs and Jews fought each other. The delegation promised itself and its fellow inhabitants to accept Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) in their society and physically protect him as one of them.
After that, in 622 AD, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) ordered his supporters to migrate from Mecca to Medina. Kafir of Mecca decided to kill Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), but they could not because he was with Hazrat Abu Bakr (R.A) and they were hiding in the cave.
After the 8 day trip, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) entered Quba that was near Medina. There was built the first Islamic mosque known as Masjid e Quba. He stayed 14 days in Quba and then went to Medina and arrived there.
