Therefore, when ALLAH, the Almighty, sent Prophet Muhammad (upon whom be peace), He sent him as His last Prophet and Messenger; as His light and mercy; as His guide and solace; as His comfort and hope to all His creation irrespective of their race and clans. As ALLAH Himself said in the Holy Qur’an: “Alif Lam Ra. (This is) a Book which We have revealed to you (O Prophet Muhammad, on whom be peace) that you may bring forth men, by their Lord’s permission from utter darkness into light – to the way of the Mighty, the Praised One” – (14:1).
ALLAH has strengthened the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Unto Him) with His Revelation, the Noble Qur’an thereby strengthening every individual who puts faith in His Oneness and His Prophets, in His mercy and in His hope.

He is the Eternal One, the Omnipresent, the Eternal Ruler, Who guides us along the path of Truth. Some people accepted ALLAH, and others did not for them would come the disgrace in this world and the world to come. But every place which accepted ALLAH was under His protection and became the kingdom of ALLAH, the kingdom of perfect faith of Islam – (See: M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen.

Blessed Light of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him)
Jabir bin Abdullah (ALLAH be pleased with him) narrates in which the Messenger of ALLAH (Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is reported to have stated: “O Jabir!

† Islam is an Arabic word, which stands for complete submission, surrender and obedience and is a derivative of a word, which means ‘peace’.
