in response to reader comment: Our dear Hassan aka Pierre and his bogus reading of the Qur'an

...While it is true that before Prophet Muhammad, all the previous prophets of God were sent only by their own people or nation and i never denied that. But take note that they are just national prophets, not international or universal, because Allah never says, nor those prophets had claimed that they are universal prophets!

But now Allah wants also the rest of the worlds or nations, or even the whole universe to be saved. that is why He sent His international or universal messenger Muhammad! It is again confirmed by the claim of Prophet Muhammad both in the hadith and history!

Now here is the point in which only those who have no logic or poorly educated like :dhimmi no more" cannot grasp or understand: We all knew that there is no such man or individual whose nation or peoples are the whole world or the whole universe, because even in our own earth alone is so much divided in to different kinds of people or nation or tribes. Now God wants to send His universal messenger or Prophet to whom then He will picked up? of course from among the nations or tribes or peopples, and in this case from among the Arab people from the tribe of Banu Hashim! Get it?

That is why we have the Holy Qur'an written in Arabic because our universal messenger is an Arab coming from an Arab people! That is simple as that! Confused? I cannot help you but to feel pity on you!

So If Allah says He sent messengers to every people or nation, it does not contradict or invalidate the fact that Prophet Muhammad is being singled-out by Allah as His universal messenger! To avoid confusion the way "dhimmi no more" ...had confused, we have to take note that all the previous prophets before Muhammad are just national prophets, sent only for their own people, while prophet Muhammad is international not only on his own people but the rest of the people in the world!!

Now "dhimmi no more" contends that it is also mentioned on the Holy Qur'an that Prophet Muhmmad is sent on his own people, that is why he is just a national prophet. He has that wrong idea because he neglect edthe verses that says Muhammad is sent for all mankind(HQ4:79;7:158) or sent by Allah as mercy to the whole universe (HQ21:107! anyway, does the verse you quoted say that Prophet Muhamamd is sent to his own people only? Take note of the word "only"! For your information it never used the word "only" ,so that verse will not contradict the fact that Prophet Muhamamd is a universal messenger for all people!

Confused between the facts that Prophet Muhammad is sent to His own people and he is the universal messenger at the same time? Now ponder this: If Prophet Muhammad is sent for all the peoples or mankind, how come then that he is not sent for his own people? How come he is for all people but not sent for his own people? The fact that he is for all people, it follows then that he is also sent to his own people and that is the truth in which you failed to grasp ...

Get my point? shame on you!

You even said: "I do not see the word Muhammad here and how do you know that Allah is not talking about let us say Ibraham? As for the word nass it means the people. Now if your Allah would have said: al-bashr or mankind you would have a case. Your claim is bogus, and do us a favor stop reading poor translations like Pickthall's poor translation where he includes the name of Muhammad! It seems that our dear Pickthall was editing the book of your Allah.

How do you know if Allah is not taliking to Abraham? That question indicates that you never read the whole Holy Qur'an and you just imitate the arguments of ignorant evagelical missionaries. Had you read it you will know that Allah is talking to no other than prophet Muhammad!That is why Pickthal, who is more knowledgeable than you and had read the whole Holy Qur'an, knew that the addressee of Allah in the Holy Qur;an is no other than Muhammad, that is why he inserted the name for you to know! When Allah will say in the Holy Qur'an: "Qul" or Say , he is then refering to His messenger, none other than Muhammad!

Why Abraham? is the Holy Qur'an revealed to Abraham or Muhammad? "dhimmi no more" has indeed no logic! shame on you.
