Question

2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and pure [to perform tayammum]. Therefore my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.

3. Booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me and was not made so for anyone else.

4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Qiyamah).

5. Every Nabi was sent to his nation exclusively but I have been sent to all mankind.
