In Islamic culture, especially in Shiite political culture, migration is valuable. The value of migration in the Shiite political culture is due to migration of the Prophet of Islam. Therefore, the main question is what is the roles and functions of migration in the Shiite political culture? To answer this question, were referred to first-hand and old sources of Shiite Islam.
