Do you know of any Messengers were sent to places other than the Middle Eastern region?
The sections of this article are:
1- Do you know if any messengers were sent to places other than the Middle Eastern
2- How can we be sure about the validity of many of the religions of today?
Let us look at what Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran:
“For We assuredly sent amongst every People an apostle, (with the Command), “Serve God, and eschew Evil”: of the People were some whom God guided, and some on whom error became inevitably (established). So travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who denied (the Truth). (The Noble Quran, 16:36)”
“To every people (was sent) an apostle: when their apostle comes (before them), the matter will be judged between them with justice, and they will not be wronged. (The Noble Quran, 10:47)”
“We sent not an apostle except (to teach) in the language of his (own) people, in order to make (things) clear to them. Now God leaves straying those whom He pleases and guides whom He pleases: and He is Exalted in power, full of Wisdom. (The Noble Quran, 14:4)”
“Verily We have sent thee in truth, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner: and there never was a people, without a warner having lived among them (in the past). (The Noble Quran, 35:24)”
“We did send apostles before thee, and appointed for them wives and children: and it was never the part of an apostle to bring a sign except as God permitted (or commanded). For each period is a Book (revealed). (The Noble Quran, 13:38)”
As we clearly see in the Noble Verses above, there was not a nation that didn’t receive a Messenger from Allah Almighty reciting to them the Truth in their own language. Allah Almighty is clearly fair and just to all people.
How can we be sure about the validity of many of the religions of today?
The message of Islam is simply believing in One True Living Undivided GOD Almighty, and not taking any partners such as other people (like Jesus and Mary), or idols with Him. As Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran:
“Say: ‘O People of the Book (i.e., Jews and Christians)! Come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah.’ If then they turn back, say ye: ‘Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah’s Will).’ (The Noble Quran, 3:64)”
Even though this Noble Verse is talking directly to Jews and Christians, but it is definitely applicable to all of Mankind. This Noble Verse summarizes the whole point of Islam. Allah Almighty created all of Mankind to Worship Him, Glorify Him and Praise Him alone without partners. If an individual, whether he is a Muslim or non-Muslim does that then he/she will please the Almighty GOD.
As to believing in the current religion of Islam, Islam comes naturally and miraculously to the person.
So to answer the question, the religions of today, whether they are Far Eastern or Western or any other Religions such as the Native American religion(s) should all be analyzed in details and compared to Islam. All of the things that agree with Islam are valid, and all of the things that have even the slightest disagreement with Islam are simply discarded.
This is my ideal answer to the analysis of all of the current World’s Religions in comparison and validation with Islam.
