 As-Salaam alaikum,
In ayat 107 of Suratul Anbiya of the Holy Qur'an (21:107), Allah Ta'ala says:--

     "We sent you not, but as a Mercy for all creatures..
      Wama arsalka illa Rahmatan Lil-alameen.''

 Here, Allah called His Messenger, Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, 'rahmatan lil-alameen'. What does this mean? Let us use a simile to clearly understand this.

 When you go to a generous person: Congressman, King, President or Queen, when you seek or they give you something, they are generous and they give you everything they can...generosity.

 Allah Ta'ala is al-Kareem...He is so Generous that when He wants to give, He will not give in limits. When He gave Sayyadina Muhammad to be rahmat (an), from one of His Beautiful Names ar-Rahman ar-Raheem, He dressed him from that Mercy that Allah gave him through the manifestation to him as His servant...meaning He made for him everything possible according to Allah's Greatness, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. Not according to human greatness. A King might give, a Queen might give according to the level of their generosity. But they don't and cannot give what Allah gives.

So, Allah gave to Sayyadina Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, according to His level of generosity... without restriction. This means that whatever the Prophet asks he will get. Remember, he said:--

    "I am the Leader of the children of Adam, and this
     is without boasting.'' (Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, Muslim)

From this hadith, it is as if the Prophet, alaihi salaat was-salaam, says: 'O Allah give them to me..'  Do you think if the Prophet says on the Day of Judgement ''give them to me'', will Allah say no? Why then is he rahmatan lil-alameen?  Allah will give him what he asks, in keeping/accordance to His full Generosity, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.
