A conversation with Jibril AS…
What did The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ say about Mercy? Once the Prophet ﷺ asked Jibril AS:
“Allah has described me as a mercy for all worlds. As for mercy to mankind, that is known. But how did my mercy envelope even you O Jibril?” Jibril AS then said, “Your mercy has even enveloped me. I used to fear my end. Will my end be like Iblees, who obeyed Allah and then became disobedient? I used to fear this until Allah revealed, The Quran is the word of Allah delivered by Jibril who possesses great strength and is held in honour by the Lord of the Throne.”
“When the Quran was revealed upon you O Prophet ﷺ, Allah saved me from ever falling into disobedience to Him, because God’s words are true and never change. That is a part of your mercy to the entire creation O Muhammed ﷺ.” Through this Allah ﷻ guaranteed Jibril AS’s protection!
Our Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is a mercy for all worlds, sent by the Most Merciful, and we are blessed to be a part of his Ummah. He is the light that brightens the darkness, the epitome of mercy, the paragon of virtues. “Indeed in him is an excellent example..” (33.21).
