After establishing a Muslim community in Madinah, the Beloved Prophet, may Allah bless him & grant him peace, began looking beyond the borders of Arabia. In paying attention to Allah's call that Islam is a deen (religion) for all peoples, he, salla Allahu 'alayhi wa Sallam, sent his most trusted Sahabah to call others to Islam.
