Title: Non-Muslims, Ummatis of Nabi (saw) or not?


are todays ghair muslims also called ummati of rasoolullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam ?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The non-Muslims of today are also the Ummat of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. However, they are Ummat’e Dawat, an Ummat to whom Dawah of Islam must be given.

Muslims are Ummat'e- Ijabat, an Ummat who accepted Islam. The Ummat’e Ijabat have a responsibility to make of Islam Dawat to Ummat’e Dawat.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
