You have known that whenever and where-ever ALLAH, the Magnificent, sent his apostles and prophets for the guidance of mankind, they always called the people to the one-ness of ALLAH. This very call towards the one-ness of ALLAH was also given by the last prophet of ALLAH. Muhammad (peace be upon him). Agreement of all the prophets on this call of TAUHEED (oneness of ALLAH) proves that Islam is the religion approved by ALLAH the Magnificent. This is the true and perpetual religion and will last for ever. I would like to tell you about this topic that how Islam is for every one. Islam was also the religion of the prophets before Muhammad (peace be upon him). It was towards this religion (Previous Prophets) invited the people. Some of their people accepted Islam and some discarded it due to their obduracy, although they knew from their own books very well, that it was the true religion. ALLAH,says:  “Ye People of the Book! Why dispute ye about Abraham (Ibraheem), when the Law and the Gospel were not revealed till after him? Have ye no understanding? Ah! Ye are those who fell to disputing (even) in matters of which ye had some knowledge! But why dispute ye in matters of which ye have no knowledge? It is ALLAH who knows and ye who know not. Abraham (Ibraheem) was not a Jew nor yet a Christian, but he were true in Faith, and bowed his will to ALLAH’s (which is Islam) and he joined not gods with the God (ALLAH)”. (3: 65-67). Islam is not a new religion – All the prophets (P.B.U.H) who came before Muhammad (peace be upon him), invited people to accept Islam and called them Muslims. Every Prophet called on his people to follow Islam. We have learnt from earlier lessons that Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the last glorious prophet of ALLAH, and no prophet will come after him. According to this point of view Muhammad (peace be upon him) was not sent towards a particular nation, but was sent for the guidance of all humanity (entire world) till Doomsday.
It is for this reason that the teachings of Muhammad (peace be upon him) are not for his people alone, but are for all mankind. He called people to Islam as IBRAHEEM, MOOSA & ESSA son of MARYAM, and all the other prophets did, so that all people worship the same ALLAH, the Magnificent, Who created them to practice the religion, He made for them. In the QURAN, the last BOOK of ALLAH, it has clearly been ordained that no religion other than Islam is acceptable to ALLAH.
