The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful. [2:185]

    Why were all the prophets in the Middle East?

    Report bad ads?

    Apparently there have been around 1000’s of prophets and afaik they’ve all been based roughly in the Middle East. Why were none set to the Far East or the Americas (or even the Polar Regions?)

    If God/Allah wanted to reach people to worship him why leave out the native Americans or the Aborigines…etc?

    No there is no proof they didn't send them else where in the world except all this scripts and holy books were made/found in the middle east!

    Hello! to j4763. (Forgive me if you find this welcome insulting because I don't know what religion you are from! It says on your part where you name is that it's undisclosed)

    But what Brother Fi_Sabilillah wrote is true as I have quoted and I have read it from my Brother's Taleemul-Haq.

    Assalamu Alaikum and Goodbye

    To every people (was sent) a messenger: when their messenger comes (before them), the matter will be judged between them with justice, and they will not be wronged.

    Re: Why were all the prophets in the Middle East?

    It just seems strange that people living at the times had no idea of these Prophets and wouldn’t find out for 100’s of years. Why did Allah neglect to inform the aborigines for example?

    Hey.


    I think you need to understand that prophets are just messengers from God, they come to give the message to give people glad-tidings of paradise and hellfire.

    They inform the people that there is only one God worthy of worship, without any associates. That they should do good, and forbid the evil etc. They bring the laws that God has ordained on the people, but it is only the people that can make the decision to accept islam (submission to God.)


    Some people choose to follow the laws of God, in return for paradise. Some people reject the prophets/messengers, and enjoy this life for a while, and get the punishment of hellfire in the afterlife because they rejected the God that created them.

    No-one; including prophets, messengers, muslims (submitters of God) etc. can force anyone to become a muslim, but instead - they should show the truth to the people who don't know the truth, eg. to worship God alone without any associates, to establish prayer, to give to the poor, to smile at your brother etc.


    I (God) have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me.
    (Qur'an 51:56)


    And some of the examples above examples are forms of worshipping God.


    God also says: "If My servants ask you about Me, tell them I am near, ready to answer those who call upon Me?" [Qur'an 2:186]


    And you are God's servant (because your God's creation), so why not give it a try? kay:



    Anyway, the reason why the aborigines may not be guided is because a messenger of God may have come to them (from among them eg. same ethnicity, same language etc.) and told them to obey God, but they may have rejected the messenger, and stuck to their traditional ways of worshipping idols etc.

    So the ones that worshipped God may have moved away, from them and the others stuck to their own ways of associating partners with God [which is a major sin.]


    Another thing you have to realise is that there have been messengers, prophets from all over the world. But God may not have mentioned their race, tribe, color etc. in the scriptures eg. Qur'an because race, color, tribe etc. doesn't matter - so God chose to differ between the people by 'believers' and 'disbelievers.'

    Islam has no place for racism, so God doesn't need to differ between a persons race, color, but instead - by differing between the believers and disbelievers. This means - there may be prophets from all over the world, but we just don't need to know that, so God doesn't need to mention it in the Qur'an.


    Hope you understand what I mean, and if you got any more questions - please do ask insha Allaah (God willing.) thanks.



    ..and Allaah Almighty knows best.


    Peace.

    Re: Why were all the prophets in the Middle East?

    So it’s quite possible that prophets were in America and Australia (Japan and china too) but the people choose to ignore them and continue with there own worshipping.

    Correct?
