Abstract

The hijrah practiced by Prophet Mohammadattributesphysical and spiritual dimensions. While physical hijrah means amigration from a discomfort place to a comfortable one, spiritual hijrah refers to culturaltransformation into a more civilized culture. Due tothe Prophet’s hijrah, Muslims and non-Muslims lived in harmony. In Medina, different clans and tribes, Muslims and non-Muslims, agreed to practice tolerance to different faiths, to improve prosperity, and to guarantee safety under Constitution of Medina. This concept bears a high degree of relevance with the situation in Indonesia which is home to a multitude of religions, tribes, and cultures. This is because hijrah is mainly about social integration and social empowerment for the sake of advancement in religion and every element of a nation.
