According to Abu Hurayra : “Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلمsaid: ‘I have been bestowed favors
over the other Prophets in six ways: I have been given the gift of
encompassing speech (Jawame al-Kalim i.e. few words carrying
many meanings), I have been helped with fear (fear upon to my
enemy); the spoils of war have been made permissible for me; the
earth has been made a means of purification and a place of
prostration for me; I have been sent to all creatures; and the
Prophets were sealed with me (i.e. I am the last of the
Reported by al-Muslim and al-Tirmidhi.
According to Jabir b. Abd Allah al-Ansari :“The Messenger of Allah said: ‘I have been bestowed
five favors that were not given to anyone before me: I have been
helped with fear (fear of mine to my enemy) with the distance of
one month; the earth has been made pure for me, a means of
purification, so wherever a man from my Umma wanted to pray
can pray anywhere; the spoils of war have been permitted to me
and they were not permitted to anyone before me; I have been
granted intercession; every Prophet was sent only to his own
people, but I have been sent for all people in general.’”
