Prophet 'Rehmat il-Alameen' - Mercy to Creation
« on: May 25, 2012, 05:19:03 PM »
Salam Brother
 
It is often claimed that the blessed Rasool was sent as Rehmat-lil-Aalameen.
 
Is this title in the Qur'an or based on secondary sources?
 
Thanks.

Salamun Alaikum.

The reference is Quranic, but it is usually quoted out of context with a view to assert a particular theological stance with respect to the Prophet. Please see the following article which I trust will address the matter, God willing.
