The Importance of Hijrah
Ikrimah has narrated about Dumrah Ibn ‘Ays, who was one of the weak and oppressed Muslims in Makkah and was sick, that when he heard what Allaah revealed about hijrah he said, “Take me out!”
So a stretcher was brought for him and he was put on it and was taken out. He died on the way at Tan’im, 2 km from Makkah.
