"al-Ummī" is one of the distinctive characteristics of the Prophet Mohammad with which he was attributed to in the Holy Koran. The word takes place in two successive verses together with the word "an-Nabī" in an adjective form as "an-Nabī al-Ummī". This concept have been variously explained and interpreted. In our article, all these meanings and interpretations will be briefly summarized, in the meantime, the explanation which has been based merely on an etymological perspective will be brought to fore and the Koranic context that supporting to this decipher will be evaluated through the other statements in the above mentioned two verses. It has been many times emphasized in the Koran that the Islam is a universal religion and the Prophet Mohammad is a universal prophet. In our study, we attempted to reveal the above cited concept within this context.
