*Main Personalities that matters, Not place.*

Bismihi Ta`ala

 *Know that Allah Ta`ala has mentioned in the Glorious Qur-aan that we would first meet his great servants and then afterwards enter the Jannah:*
فَادْخُلِي فِي عِبَادِي () وَادْخُلِي جَنَّتِي ()‘’

*So enter among My special servants. And enter my paradise.’’(89:29,30)* 

*Indicating that we should first meet personalities that shone on earth with good actions and great sacrifice for deen like the group of prophets, siddiqs, martyrs and pious people. Then only after that we will enter Paradise with them.(Ibn Katheer)* 

*Know that personalities that have done great sacrifice for a particular sphere of deen will be counted amongst its elite. Hazrat Bilaal r.a. did not dream about Azaan but he was elected first Muazzin because of his long painful torture he endured when he kept saying ‘’Ahad, Ahad- God is One! God is One!’’.* 

*I wish to highlight the fact that when some great personalities moved in another place that they use to dwell in, then the place hold no more that importance, but rather the barkah and lighthouse of that sphere of deen will follow them to their actual respective places. This can be deducted from the Badr circumstances.* 

*The beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam originally did not announce confrontation with the Makkans while going out in Badr. So not all muslims took part in Badr. Rather some 300 muslims Muhajir and Ansaars. But the main component of muslims were in that Mubarak group: Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam, Abu Bakr r.a., Umar r.a. and other main Muhajirs. Bearing in mind that many Ansaar muslims were in Madinah, still Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam supplicated Allah Ta`ala in duas in these terms that if ‘’this group of muslims in Badr would be killed, then the deen Islam would finish.’’(Bukhari)*
  حدثنا خالد عن عكرمة عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قالقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وهو في قبة اللهم إني أنشدك عهدك ووعدك اللهم إن شئت لم تعبد بعد اليوم فأخذ أبو بكر بيده فقال حسبك يا رسول الله فقد ألححت على ربك وهو في الدرع فخرج وهو يقول{ سيهزم الجمع ويولون الدبر بل الساعة موعدهم والساعة أدهى وأمر } 

*Meaning that if the elders and the ones who have done most sacrifice have moved to Badr, then actual survival of the deen has actually moved. Although there were muslims in Madinah, still the beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam addressed the survival issue of Islam as from the survival of the muslims in Badr. Not in Madinah.* 

*Hence, try to look for elders and follow them if they migrated to another place. Because it is the main personalities that are older and sacrificed more that is more important, not their ancient dwelling place.*
