This site is dedicated to our Master Sayyidina Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wasalim )the Mercy to Mankind
Allah Almighty says:
And we have not sent you except as a mercy to all of Creation. (Al-Anbiya’ 21:107)
We are going to make a thematic introduction to this verse.
Theme I: Islam Is Peace and Justice for All
This verse of the Glorious Qur’an defines the reality of the person of Muhammad (peace be upon him) emphasizing him as primarily characterized by mercy. The most prominent feature describing the mission of Muhammad (peace be upon him), besides his comprehensiveness, is his being a mercy to humanity, not to mention to the whole of creation. The mission of the Prophet (peace be upon him) thus is to communicate the mercy of Almighty Allah to the whole of humanity without restriction. This message is to be communicated by mercy and not by force, based upon the well-known verse,
There is no compulsion in religion.” (Al-Baqarah 2:256)
This can be said to be the first unique characteristic of Islam that it is a divine message rooted in boundless mercy and this is defined by its universality and its call to the brotherhood of humanity based on a life of justice and spirituality, both of which are marks of mercy.
Theme II: Islam Cares for the Life of the Soul and Body
Islam is a way of life aimed at catering to and facilitating the needs of life, whether they are material or spiritual. Islam looks to preserve the life of the soul, intellect and family, as well as the economic life. Also, it seeks to protect the physical life of individuals, which is highly valued in Islam. It is these five arenas that Islam looks to develop and better the conditions for their growth and wellbeing because these are the essential living arenas. So, it was a demonstration of Allah’s All-Encompassing Mercy that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was sent with the religion that facilitates the needs of all facets of life.
Humanity is not left unto itself without guidance, but it is aided in the process of life and assured in time of hardship that life is more than just material existence. Rather, it has a spiritual aspect that transcends death. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) teaches humanity the purpose of their life and how to establish justice in the process of realizing the needs and demands of daily life, without forgetting or neglecting the demands of the heart, soul and intellect.
