Title

Is there mention of any other religions?

Question

is there any mention of other religions or other parts of the world apart from middle east ,Europe, Asia and Africa as an atheist says that Muhammad (saw) knew only of these places. meaning he wrote the qur’an and he did not know of the existence of the rest of the world and other religions? (please help)

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

We do not understand the relevance of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم not knowing the rest of the world with him writing the Quran? Kindly elaborate.

And Allah knows best

Wassalam
