Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is there any single word that jesus mission was universal for all mankind?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Was jesus message universal
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Every single Prophet who were sent by Allah Subhanah before the Last and Final Messenger, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws), without exception, were sent as a guide and as a warner only to their people. Only the Message revealed by the Lord Most Majestic unto His Last and Final Messenger, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws) was universal and for all mankind until the end of time!
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.429 Narrated by Jabir bin Abdullah
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Every Prophet (who came before me) were sent to their nation exclusively, but I have been sent to all of mankind.”
Allah Subhanah Himself confirms in Truth in His Glorious Quran that the Noble Messenger of Allah, Prophet Isa ibn Maryam (a.s.) was sent as a Prophet only unto the Bani Israel and not for the whole of mankind…..
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imraan verses 45-51:
45 Behold! The Angels said "O Mary! Allah gives thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus the son of Mary held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah.
46 He (Jesus) shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity and he shall be (of the company) of the righteous.
47 She said: "O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man hath touched me?" He said: "Even so: Allah creates what He Wills; when He hath Decreed a plan He but Says to it `Be' and it is!”
48 "And Allah will teach him (Jesus) the Book and Wisdom the Law and the Gospel.
49 And (appoint him) as a Messenger unto the Children of Israel (with this Message): “I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord in that I make for you out of clay as it were the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allah's leave; and I heal those born blind and the lepers and I quicken the dead by Allah's leave; and I declare to you what ye eat and what ye store in your houses. Surely therein is a Sign for you if ye did believe.
50 (I have come to you) to attest the Law which was before me and to make lawful to you part of what was (before) forbidden to you; I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord. So fear Allah and obey me.
51 It is Allah who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship Him. This is a way that is Straight."
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 61 Surah Saff verse 6:
6 And remember Jesus the son of Mary said: "O Children of
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
