Hijrah (migration) from the Lands of the Raafidah is obligatory – Shaykh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaaree
He (the questioner) says: May Allaah bless you; a land from the lands of the Rawaafidh; is it referred to as a land of Shirk and are we to make Hijrah from it?
I have mentioned to you, on the authority of Maalik, may Allaah be pleased with him, and others; that he had left a land and said: “I will not stay in a land wherein ‘Uthmaan is reviled.”
The lands of the Rawaafidh in which explicit association of partners with Allaah the Majestic and High is done openly; and other than Allaah is supplicated to; and other than Allaah is beseeched for aid; and the companions of the Messenger of Allaah (upon him be prayers and peace) are cursed from their pulpits; yet you doubt that they are lands of Shirk, Kufr, and heresy?! It is obligatory upon he who is able to make Hijrah from it to emigrate. Those lands are no different from the lands of the original disbelievers. Clear?
So he who is able to make Hijrah, along with that which we have previously mentioned, amongst the conditions from Hijrah, then he is to emigrate.
