Universality of the Message of Islam

Is the Message of Islam in Saudi Arabia restricted to the people living in Saudi Arabia and not expanded to other Muslim countries? Was this the case in the era of our noble Prophet Muhammad ibn `Abdullah (peace be upon him)? 

A: The Message of Islam in Saudi Arabia is not restricted to it. The callers to the Way of Allah (Exalted be He) must perform their duty of Da`wah (calling to Islam) and guidance in Saudi Arabia as well as other countries in all continents of the world according to their abilities. Moreover, the Saudi officials in charge of Da`wah activities invite many Muslim scholars at the expense of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to perform the duties of teaching, preaching, and guidance in Saudi Arabia and other countries around the world. The need for this also increases in the Hajj season to discharge the duties of Da`wah and guidance, as far as possible, towards the huge crowds of pilgrims.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
