Haj & ‘Umrah

Objection by a brother regarding leaving Madinah for propagating Islam

Question

A brother in the Path of Allah (Tabligh), after the bayan, narrated the virtues that praying in Masjidul Ḥaram has 100,000 times rewards and praying in Masjidun Nabawi has 50,000 times rewards, but the Sahabah still left Arabia to spread the Din.

In response, a brother raised the following question:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) migrated to Madinah, and even after conquering Makkah, returned to Madinah again. He also spent the rest of his life mostly in Madinah. We have to follow the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), so what should we do?

Please give us a brief explanation in light of the abovementioned facts.

Every pomegranate has a seed from Jannah?

Question

I have recently read a Hadith about pomegranates. Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrated that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said,
