Message of the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)

What is the duty of Muslims towards the message of the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)?

The legacy of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) is the conveyance of that message, the message of tawheed. His (ﷺ) job was to convey the message. And that job, he has handed on to us, today. He was the messenger to the whole world, lil ‘aalameen. But how could that be? How come that we have the message today, when he didn’t come to us? It happens because other people conveyed that message to us. The message is conveyed to various nation and people who lived among us by people carrying message to them. And he gave us a very clear command,

“Convey whatever you have ever learned from me, even it is only a single verse from the Quran.”[1]

Everyone has a share in this legacy. It is not only for just a single group or particular organization, it is for each and every Muslim, the duty to convey the message to people around him or around her.

That message is summed up in the short chapter at the end of the Qur’an, commonly known as Surah Al-Ikhlas, but also referred to by the early generation as Surah at-Tawheed, the chapter of at-Tawheed, at the very first verse of the Surah,

“Say, He is Allah, the uniquely one.”[2]
