Q: Regarding the people of fatrah, it’s mentioned in the Quran that each nation was sent a prophet, so what about people of fatrah? Was belief in Risalat not needed for them?
A: Majority of the ulama say that as long as they had believed in tauheed and were not guilty of shirk and the message of the nabi had not reached them then they will be excused.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
