 Those who believe, and adopt exile, and fight for the Faith, in the cause of Allah as well as those who give (them) asylum and aid,- these are (all) in very truth the Believers: for them is the forgiveness of sins and a provision most generous.

According to the Study Quran,

This verse is understood to exalt the Emigrants and the Helpers above
all other categories of Muslims, and this rank is seen by most Muslims as forever
restricted to them, based upon a ḥadīth that states, “There is no migration
(hijrah) after the victory,” thought by most to refer to the conquest of Makkah,
but by others to refer to the Treaty of Ḥudaybiyah, which enabled open travel
between Makkah and Madinah for the two years previous to the final conquest
of Makkah by the Prophet and his followers. Some commentators mention
opinions that describe leaving one’s homeland to campaign in the way of God as
a kind of hijrah (Q, R).
