Washington Irving on Prophet Muhammed (ﷺ)

When our beloved Prophet Muhammed ﷺ migrated to Madinah, he established brotherhood among the Sahaba. Each Medinan Ansār was to support one Makkan Muhājir. Mentioning this concept in his book, the American historian and diplomat Washington Irving writes (few words were replaced with their synonyms, without changing the author’s opinion, for a better understanding):

“To give them a new home, and link them closely with their new friends and allies, Mohammed (Pbuh) established a brotherhood between fifty-four of them and as many of the inhabitants of Medina, two persons thus linked together were pledged to stand by each other in happiness and sorrow. It was a tie which knit their interests more closely even than of kindred, for they were to be heirs to each other in preference to blood relations. 

This brotherhood lasted only until newcomers (Ansaar) had taken firm root in Medina, extended merely to those of the people of Mecca who had fled from persecution, and the same was mentioned in the Koran.” _-Washington Irving’s Life of Mohammed (ﷺ), pg. 82_
