57.  Every soul will taste of Death. Then unto Us ye will be returned.

Disbelievers of Makkah had made difficult for the Muslims to live. The Muslims have been commanded in this verse: The purpose of life should be to worship Allaah Almighty. If you are unable to worship Him in your native land, then you should leave it and settle at any other place. Difficulties of this world are only for a few days; at last you have to die. Remember it that every soul will taste death. None can be saved from it. And after death you will be reproduced before Allaah Almighty. By compulsion, you would have to leave your native land, families, companions and friends at the time of death. So if you will leave all such relationships for the sake of Allaah Almighty, you will be requited with good reward after death.


Allaah Almighty commands: it is Our Promise that if you will believe and do righteous deeds – We will surely assign to you of Paradise (elevated) chambers beneath which rivers flow, wherein you will abide eternally.


After that, many families immigrated from Makkah to Abyssinia.
