The word Rehmatul lil A'alameen is not reserved for huzoor صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم

Question:The word’ Rahmatulilaalameen ;is only for prophet (sal allahu alaihiwassalam) or it can be used for any one else? 

Answer: The word’ Rahmatulilaalameen’ ( mercy for the entire creation)is not reserved for prophet ( sal allahu alaihi wa sallam),infact awliya and other prophet and scholars of deoband ( ulma-e-rabanayn) are also mercy for this ummah. Prophet ( sal allahu alaihi wa sallam) is highest among all these people.Therefore if this word is used for others it is permissible.
