The Accord of Fraternity among Muslims
Compiled by: Syed Ali Shahbaz
On 12th of the Islamic month of Ramadhan in 1 AH, Prophet Mohammad (SAWA), some six months after his migration to Medina from Mecca, established the Accord of Fraternity among Muslims with each Mohajer or Migrant from Mecca becoming the brother-in-faith of an Ansar or Muslim Helper from Medina.
For his own, part, the Prophet, whose merits and superiority were beyond any Mohajer or Ansar, took hold of the hand of his worthy cousin, Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (AS) to declare him brother. The Accord of Fraternity among Muslims was a key factor in fostering unity and burying the age-old tribal differences of the Arabs.
