It is by no means logical that a system sent for the bliss and salvation of humanity by Allah – Whose mercy encompasses all creation – be allotted to a handful of people while all others are left devoid of this bounty. This situation contrasts with the Rahman and Raheem attributes of Allah.
The messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him) said:
“God Almighty shows mercy to those who show mercy. Show mercy to those on earth so that those in the Heavens shall show mercy to you.” (Abu Dawud, Adab, 58/4941; Tirmizi, Birr 16/1924; Ahmad bin Hanbal, II, 160)
This hadith implies no particular race. Nor does it imply “Muslims-only.” It commands us all to be merciful to all human beings, animals, and plants.
