When Hazrat Idrees started preaching Allah’s message and showed the right path to people then people paid no heed to him but some of them understood his teachings. When Hazrat Idrees saw this, he decided to migrate from there with his followers. When his followers came to know about his decision, they became upset and said that we can never find a homeland like Babul again. At this, Hazrat Idrees replied that if you are suffering from pain while walking on Allah’s way then He is REHMAN. He will defiantly bless you. So, be brave and bow before Allah’s orders. Muslims did so and they migrated towards MISR (EGYPT). When they saw the flow of NILE and the greenery In Egypt, they became very happy. They selected a place like babul at the bank of river Nile to live. He and his group started preaching Allah’s message in Egypt. It is said that at that time, people used to know many languages and because of Allah’s blessings they knew all the languages and they used to preach Allah’s message to everyone in his own language. Prophet Idrees also taught politics, customs and urban life to his students. He gathered students from each and every group and taught them principles of cultural politics. When they became specialists they went back to their groups and established cities and towns on the basis of cultural principles. These cities were almost two hundred in number and smallest of them was Raha. Prophet Idrees also taught his students wisdoms and astrology. Idrees (as) was first to know about knowledge of wisdom and astrology. Allah told him about stars, there position and attraction between them. If Allah did not let us know about these sciences through His Prophet Idrees then humans could never know about them. Prophet Idrees selected rules for different groups and Ummahs and divided the land into four parts. He also selected a leader for each part who was responsible for politics of that area. The leaders ruled their parts and they were ordered to keep the sharia law (the law which was revealed to them by the messenger and imposed by almighty Allah) above all laws of the land.

Idrees (AS) divided the people among three categories namely
1. Kahan / Preechers
3. Rayyat (Nation)
These categories were based on their jobs and duties not according to the family, nobility or wealth. Kahan was the first and finer category. Kahan was responsible and answerable to Allah for himself the kings and the nation. Kings were the second highest category because they were held answerable to themselves and the nation. Everyone in the nation was responsible for himself and not for anyone else.
