Understanding the Story of the Prophets

The main reason Rasulullah s.a.w. was sent by Allah s.w.t. was to serve as a mercy to all. The word “rahmah” means love, gentleness, compassion, and goodness that brings about joy to all of humanity. Therefore, all the teachings, advice and guidance by the Prophet s.a.w. leads to rahmah. This was the principle message that was brought by every Prophet and Rasul. It is a message that is founded on peace and developing humanity, and can be clearly recognised by anyone who studies the history and lives of the Prophets. Unfortunately today, some have chosen war and violence as the main principle of Islam, that must be upheld in any situation. This is a deviance and a fitnah that will taint and destroy our beloved religion.
