Assalam aleikum, I know prophet Muhammed s.a.w is the seal of prophethood. Now what is meant by he being sent to the whole world. Am asking this because prophet Issah ( Jesus) a.s. was sent to only Israelites and yet Christianity is found in almost every country in the world. So can someone enlighten me on this? Thank you.

The Holy Qur'an says,

Muhammad is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets. And ever is Allah , of all things, Knowing. [33:40]

And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds. [21:107]

Say, [O Muhammad], "O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, [from Him] to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death." So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered prophet, who believes in Allah and His words, and follow him that you may be guided. [7:158]

So the reason of Holy Prophet (S.A.W) as a mercy to the worlds is that he (S.A.W) is the last Prophet of Allah (S.W.T) and no prophet will come after him (S.A.W) so he is the guidance to all mankind. And that is why Allah (S.W.T) has taken the responsibility of Holy Qur'an

Indeed, upon Us is its collection [in your heart] and [to make possible] its recitation [75:17]

The thing is, previous Ummahs had edited their scriptures and gone astray so Allah (S.W.T) continually send his Prophets for their Guidance. But because now Allah has taken the responsibility of the Qur'an that no changes will be made in this Holy Book so their is no need for any other prophet to come. Allah (S.W.T) has secured the Sunnahs of Holy Prophet (S.A.W) as well.

HE WAS SENT TO THE WHOLE WORLD MEANS. HE WAS SENT TO MANKIND AND JINN.BECAUSE ALLAH SUBHANA WAT'ALA SAID HE did not create man and jinn except they should worship HIM.SO NO ONE including the jinns will DENY NOT HEARING OF THE MESSAGE OR HIS PROPHETHOOD.

He was the only prophet who was sent to the entire world. He mentioned this in hadith. He said that he was prefered to all prophets " prophets before me were sent to a particular people and I was sent to whole ".
