 Prophet's Migration to Madina  
The Prophet (Peace be upon him) came to Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) and told him that God had given him permission to migrate from Mecca. Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) exclaimed, "Together, O Prophet (Peace be upon him) of God?"; for he was anxious to keep him company." Then Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) presented two dromedaries he had been keeping in time for the purpose. 'Abdallah Ibn Urayqit was hired by Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) to act as a guide.

The unbelieving Quraysh of Mecca were bitterly set against the Prophet (Peace be upon him). Yet they were absolutely convinced of his truthfulness and trustworthiness, nobility and magnanimity. If anybody in Mecca apprehended loss or misappropriation of his property, he usually deposited it with the Prophet (Peace be upon him). The Prophet (Peace be upon him) had thus a number of things committed to his care. He, therefore, charged 'Ali to return these to their owners before leaving Mecca. Of a fact, such a square dealing at this critical moment is a strange commentary on the nobility of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) as well as the callousness thus clarified by God.

"We know well how their talk grieveth thee, though in truth they deny not thee (Muhammad) but evil-doers flout the revelations of Allah." [Qur'an 6:33]
