Shaykh Hamza Yusuf: The Prophet (s.a.w.) was a Mercy to Everyone

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Hamza Yusuf said, “The great genius of our religion, and one of the great truths of our Prophet (s.a.w.), is that he came as a mercy to everyone.  He created multi-ethnic and multi-cultural societies.  He had all types of people: Persians, Romans, Africans, Arabs from different tribes; and he brought them into a fraternity of mercy.  He had Jews and Christians and he honoured them, and spoke to them kindly.  He was not a harsh person; he was a gentle person.  He created an open society.  Our religion honours people and treats them with dignity.  May Allah Preserve in you the tolerance of Islam.”
