Route of First Migration to Abyssinia

Not much is known of the route taken by Muslims during their course of migration but the most likely route of the First Migration to Habshah (Abyssinia). The group left Mecca and headed towards either the Muza port (al-Mokha) or Aden Port, where they boarded a ship to cross the Red Sea. They reached at the Adulis port of Eritrea from there they travelled to Axum, capital of Najashi Ashama ibn-Abjar.

The port of is the most probable option that the Muslim migrants might have take during the seventh century as the fastest and the most secure route would have been the Incense route
