Muhammad's ﷺ Message is Universal (Surah Al-A’raf 7: 158) S7a15810

Muhammad's ﷺ Message is Universal

Allah says to His Prophet and Messenger Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam),
Say , O Muhammad,

O mankind!, this is directed to mankind red and black, and the Arabs and non-Arabs alike,
I am sent to you all as the Messenger of Allah, This Ayah mentions the Prophet's (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) honor and greatness, for he is the Final Prophet who was sent to all mankind [and the Jinns]. Allah said,

Say, "Allah is Witness between you and I; this Qur'an has been revealed to me that I may therewith warn you and whomsoever it may reach.'' [6:19],

but those of the sects that reject it, the Fire will be their promised meeting place
[11:17], and,

And say to those who were given the Scripture and to the illiterates (Arab pagans): "Do you (also) submit yourselves (to Allah in Islam)'' If they do, they are rightly guided; but if they turn away, your duty is only to convey the Message. [3:20]

There are many other Ayat and more Hadiths than can be counted on this subject. It is also well-known in our religion that the Messenger of Allah was sent to all mankind [and the Jinns]. Al-Bukhari recorded that Abu Ad-Darda' said, "Abu Bakr and `Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) had an argument in which Abu Bakr made `Umar angry. So `Umar went away while angry and Abu Bakr followed him asking him to forgive him, but `Umar refused. `Umar shut his door closed in Abu Bakr's face and Abu Bakr went to the Messenger of Allah while we were with him. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said,

This fellow of yours (Abu Bakr) has made someone angry! ` Umar became sorry for what he did, went to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and greeted him with the Salam and sat next to him, telling him what had happened. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) became angry (at `Umar), and realizing that, Abu Bakr said, `O Allah's Messenger! It was me who was unjust.' The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said,

Will you leave my Companion (Abu Bakr) alone! I said, `O People! I am the Messenger of Allah to you all,' and you said, `You lie,' but Abu Bakr declared, `You said the truth.''' Al-Bukhari recorded it.

Imam Ahmad recorded that Ibn `Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) said that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said,

I have been given five things which were not given to any Prophet before me, and I do not say it out of pride. I was sent to all mankind (their) black and white alike. Allah made me victorious by fright, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey. The spoils of war are lawful for me, yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform purification with. I have been given the Shafa'ah (right of intercession), and I saved it for my Ummah on the Day of Resurrection. Therefore, the Shafa'ah will reach those who associate none with Allah in worship.) This Hadith's chain of narration is suitable, but the Two Sahihs did not record it. Allah's statement,

to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. None has the right to be worshipped but He. It is He Who gives life and causes death, describes Allah by the words of the Messenger that He Who has sent him is the Creator, Lord and King of all things and in His Hand is the control, life, death and the decision. Just as Allah said

So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, Allah proclaims here that Muhammad is His Messenger and reiterates this fact by commanding that he be believed in and followed. Allah said,

The Prophet who can neither read nor write who you were promised and given the good news of in previous revealed books. Certainly, Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was amply described in the previous books, including his description as being the unlettered Prophet. Allah's statement,

who believes in Allah and His Words, means, his actions conform with his words and he believes in what he was given from his Lord.

And follow him, embrace his path and guidance,

so that you may be guided to the Straight Path.
