Letters sent by the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) to kings and rulers inviting them to Islam
We learn from Sahih Bukhari that late in the six year A.H., on his return from Hudaibiyah, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.s.), decided to send messages to the kings and rulers beyond Arabia calling them to Islam. In order to authenticate the credentials of his envoys, a silver seal was made in which were graven the words: “Muhammad the Messenger of Allâh”
Below, you will find two posts with the contents of those letters. The first letter was send to Negus (also referred to as Najashi), while the second post is about the letter that he sent to Cyrus Al-Muqawqas (the Coptic Vicegerent in Egypt). The posts also include the response sent by those rulers to the prophet (s.a.w.s.).
