Prophet Muhammad (SAWW), is known universally as “Rahmat ul lil A’alameen”, meaning blessings for all humanity, irrespective of caste, color, creed or country and blessings for all creatures, insects, plants and animals.

See how overwhelmingly Alphonse de Lamartine, famous French politician and writer described Prophet Muhammad (SAWW):
“Never has a man accomplished in such a short time such an immense and long lasting revolution in the world, since less than two centuries after his predication, Islam, preaching and armed, ruled over three Arabias, and conquered to God’s unity Persia, the Khorasan, Transoxania, Western India, Syria, Egypt, Ethiopia, and all the known continent of Southern Africa, many islands of the Mediterranean, Spain and part of Gaul.
“If the grandeur of the aim, the smallness of the means, the immensity of the results are the three measures of a man’s genius, who would dare humanly compare a great man of modern history with Muhammad?
“This man not only moved armies, legislation, empires, peoples, dynasties, millions of men over a third of the inhabited globe; but he also moved ideas, beliefs, souls. He founded upon a book, of which each letter has become a law, a spiritual nationality embracing people of all languages and races; and made an indelible imprint upon this Muslim nation, for the hatred of false gods and the passion for the God, One and Immaterial.”
Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of a rational dogma for a cult without imagery, founder of twenty earthly empires and of one spiritual empire, this is Muhammad (SAWW).
The divine truth behind the message of Prophet Muhammad (SAWW), the Messiah for and salvation of all mankind, is inexpressible in words to write and incalculable to express. Here actions are judged by intentions of profound promise, purity and piety.
