Habitation at time of the Prophet

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

during the time of prophet mohammed saws did people existed in countries like india-russia-australia etc etc or did people live only in middle east


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Habitation at time of the Prophet

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


There is ample evidence in History that people existed way beyond the Middle-East during the time of the Prophet Mohamed (saws); for eg. in Africa, in Russia, in Asia Minor, in China, in Central Europe, in Eastern Europe, in the Far-East, in the Indian Sub-continent, etc. Although there is no recorded evidence of the existence of people in the continents of the Americas or Australia or their inter-action with the known world at the time, it is probably safe to assume that these continents were populated with their indigenous population at the time of the Messenger of Allah (saws). Archeological evidence has today proved that the indigenous population of the continents of the Americas and Australia, etc. had lived in their lands for thousands of years.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
