It was the 12th year after the commission of the Prophet’s mission. Muslims had endured tremendous hardship at the hands of Quraish, yet they remained steadfast in their faith.
The seeds of belief had firmly taken root in the hearts of the believers, yet the realization of Islam at a societal level was stymied by a socio-political system that resisted overtures for complete submission to the one true God.
At the time that the life in Makkah was becoming unbearable for Muslims to protect their identity and belief, Madinah was beckoning to them with its blissful breeze cooling their hearts, though it was blowing from afar.
Through this encouraging sign, Muslims found a channel that would help them continue upholding the truth and getting a permanent break-away from what they saw as falsehood and deception. This gave them empowerment.
