the year 628 the Holy Prophet of Islam (Peace
Be Upon Him) dispatched several representatives
to rulers and kings of different parts of
the world, each with a letter in which he
invited them to become Muslims and submit
to God's faith. All these letters had the

chiefs of tribes and clans, and heads of

of the letter.
the Name of Allâh,the Most Beneficent,

of Allâh to Negus, king of Abyssinia
(Ethiopia). Peace be upon him who follows
true guidance. Salutations, I entertain
Allâh’s praise, there is no
god but He, the Sovereign, the Holy, the
Source of peace, the Giver of peace, the
Guardian of faith, the Preserver of safety.
I bear witness that Jesus, the son of Mary,
is the spirit of Allâh and His Word
which He cast into Mary, the virgin, the
good, the pure, so that she conceived Jesus.
Allâh created him from His spirit
and His breathing as He created Adam by
His Hand. I call you to Allâh Alone
with no associate and to His obedience and
to follow me and to believe in that which
came to me, for I am the Messenger of Allâh.
I invite you and your men to Allâh,
the Glorious, the All-Mighty. I hereby bear
witness that I have communicated my message
and advice. I invite you to listen and accept
my advice. Peace be upon him who follows
