He ha to leave his country where he was born and raised in, and grew to love, to travel to another foreign country where he has only heard about. He would go on for months without food. He had to live on alert all the times. He had an ummah to take care of and guide on top of all this. Only a strong image was wanted from him. A leader. Someone the ummah could follow without hesitation and with all their trust. He went through so much but he took everything as a test; a trial. He knew better will be waiting for him and that this dunyab would not last that long. He knew that whatever he…
