Volume 1, Parts 1.62.1
Muhammed Ibn Umar al-Aslami informed us; he said: Mamar Ibn
Rashid related to me on the authority of al-Zuhri, he on the authority of
Abu Umamah Ibn Sahl Ibn Hunayf and ‘Urwah, (the latter) on the
authority of Ayishah; they (AbuUmamah and ‘Urwah) said:
When the party of seventy persons returned, the Apostle of Allah, may
Allah bless him, was much pleased that Alláh had provided him with
supporters and had helped him through men of martial spirit and valour.
In the meantime the unbelievers had intensified their tyranny on
Muslims since they had learnt of their migration. Consequently they had
rendered their life miserable. They committed cruelties and showered
abuses which they had not yet used. The Companions of the Apostle of
Allah, may Allah bless him, complained to him and asked him to permit

them to migrate. He said: I have been shown the place of your migration
I have been shown a tract of moorland full of date-palms between two
stony places. Had al-Sarát been the place of date-palms and moorland, I
would have said it was this. He waited for a few days and looked happy
when he came to his Campanions and said: I have been informed of the
place of your migration; it is Yathrib; he who likes may go to it. The
people began preparations helping and supporting each other and
keeping it a secret. The first person from among the Companions of the
Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, to arrive at al-Madinah was Abu
Salamah Ibn Abd al-Asad. After him came 'Amir Ibn Rabi'ah with his wife Layla Bint Abi Hathmah. She was the first woman to arrive at alMadinah. Then the Companions of the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, came in a group. They stayed in the houses of Ansàrs who provided them with shelter and supported and helped them. Salim the mawla of Abu Hudhayfah used to lead the Muhàjirs in prayer at Quba before the arrival of the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him. When the Muslims came out to migrate to al-Madinah, the Quraysh behaved rabidly towards them, fought them and became angry with those of their young men who had left. The Ansàrs after having offered hay'ah to the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, at al-Aqabah on the second occasion, had retired to alMadinah. After the first batch of immigrants had reached Quba, some of
them (Ansárs) came to Makkah and then migrated with the companions;
they are known as Immigrant Ansárs. (Muhajrun Ansariyun, they had
come to Makkah to return to al-Madinah as muhajirs, so that they might
get the reward of hijrah.) Their names are Dhakwán Ibn Abd Qays, 'Uqbah Ibn Wahb Ibn Kaldah, al-'Abbas IbnUbadah Ibn Nadlah and
Ziyàd Ibn Labid. (Subsequently) all the Muslims migrated to al-Madinah
and none remained at Makkah, except the Apostle of Allah, may Allah
bless him, Abu Baker and `Ali, besides those who were imprisoned or
were ill or too weak to migrate
