Question & Answer
Did rasullallah ever say that the kafirin are also his ummah?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

To the best of our efforts, we did not find any of the narration from the blessed prophet (pbuh), where the disbelievers were declared as part of Muslim ummah.

Allah says in the glorious quran: And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) not but as a mercy for the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). Quram[21:107]

The word “ummah” is an Arabic word which means a community. Thus if we take the word “ummah” in broader sense, it may include all the people on whom the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh) was sent (including believers and disbelievers). Amongst the mankind who believed in or responded to what the blessed prophet brought and taught are known as ummat al-islamiyah (Islamic community) and those who are to be invited to the truth (Islam) are known as ummah of invitation (dawah). And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
