Afghani case specifies the potential importance of Islamic concept of refugees and persons. from the point of view of policy. poor have the right to abundance rich to satisfy the basic needs. the Islam encourages solidarity. as well as more universal comparison of the last and present crises of Muslim refugees. that compelled migration of refugees as are powerless to be with not consciousness of history. By means of these agreements. can shed more light on possibilities of the coordination of the Islamic concept of refugees and persons. Moreover. Besides one of interpretation of the Koran declare that people have the right to seek asylum in connection with their dignity and spiritual equality. Financial well-being of such principles as also can provide an actual basis for increase of sources of the help to refugees in the Muslim states. such as Palestine and Sudan. (Kirmani. Islamic financial mechanisms of maintenance and regional agreements have such two mechanisms. mass media as a whole support the assumption. with modern international law. the future researches are necessary for definition or not Afghani case is unique and have no place of a consequence for current refugees Muslim crises. Regional agreements between the Muslim states concerning representing violent move maybe more successful. First. . community of validity and the general responsibility. it approves. However.
