Muslims believe that Muhammad received the same Message that was given to Abraham, Moses, Jesus and other prophets but his mission was universal. He was entrusted to correct people’s beliefs, bring them back to the true faith and teach them good deeds.Muslims believe that Muhammad received the same Message that was given to Abraham, Moses, Jesus and other prophets but his mission was universal.

“And We have not sent you but as a mercy to the worlds” (The Quran, 21:107).

Muhammad sent letters to the rulers and kings of neighboring countries and superpowers such as Persia, Byzantine and Egypt calling them to accept Islam as “the Message of God”. When Heraclius King of Byzantine received Muhammad’s letter, he invited Abu-Sufyan (one of the main chiefs and tradesmen of Makkah who was by chance doing business in that area) to attend him. Heraclius asked Abu-Sufyan a few questions and requested him to be honest.

Heraclius : Which social class of the society does Muhammad come from? 

Abu-Sufyan : He comes from a noble family in Makkah.

 Heraclius : Did he ever betray, break a promise or lie? 

Abu-Sufyan : No.

 Heraclius : How about his followers, are they increasing or decreasing? And have any of his followers quit because he was not pleased with Muhammad? 

Abu-Sufyan : In fact, Muhammad’s followers admired him. They were increasing in number.

 Heraclius : Then what does Muhammad teach his followers? 

Abu-Sufyan : Belief in One God and social justice. 

Heraclius thought for a while, then he said: "If what you told me is true, then Muhammad will be able to inherit my kingdom".
