Holy Prophet Muhammad as a “mercy to the worlds”

I presented a talk at our Lahore Ahmadiyya London Centre last Sunday, 1st March 2015, under the above title, with the sub-title: "and the stories of the cat, dog, camel, bird, hen and ant".

Over the years, when I consulted books of Hadith (physical, printed ones) for some reference, I kept on coming across other reports of great interest, often not generally known, which shed light on the wonderful character of the Holy Prophet. I noted these down on the fly leaf of the book. For my recent talk, I compiled some of them together. Please see the article at this link.

    Thank you for sharing this!

    Here's one more of interest:

    Narrated Anas: Allah's Apostle said, "Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is an oppressed one." People asked, "O Allah's Apostle! It is all right to help him if he is oppressed, but how should we help him if he is an oppressor?" The Prophet said, "By preventing him from oppressing others." (Bukhari)

    I have just read the excellent article on the above subject. The mercy for this world is fully covered. What about the other worlds? The Holy Quran clearly mentions the "worlds".

    Thank you for appreciating my article.

    "Worlds" could mean the different nations of the world. The Holy Prophet is a mercy to them in several ways. He came for all of them, which no prophet before him did, which is a mercy. He taught that Allah looks upon all of them equally, since He sent prophets to all of them. So he is a mercy in making them one and equal. He gave such teachings that if nations adopt any of them, they still benefit even without becoming his followers.

    There are also of course worlds such as the world of science, the political world, the social world, the world of education, etc. To all of these he is a mercy because of his teachings.

    "Worlds" could also mean worlds other than the human world, such as animals, plants and nature. My talk mentioned how he was a mercy to the animal world.
