All those who dwell upon the earth shall glorify, bless, and sing the name of the Lord of the Spirits. For this purpose he became the Chosen One; he was concealed in the presence of (the Lord of the Spirits) prior to the creation of the world and for eternity.

“The Prophet Muhammad’s (on whom be peace) being a mercy to all is linked to the fact that he is the intermediary of the Divine outpouring over all contingencies [i.e. all created things without exception], from the very beginning” – (Mahmud al-Alusi (1802 – 1854), The Exegesis Of the Holy Qur’an, entitled Ruh al-ma`ani, Beirut edition).
