Are non-Muslims also Ummatis of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)?

Q: I want to know whether Hindus, Christians and Yahoodis in this time are also Ummatis of our Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) or only Muslims are Ummatis. 

A: With respect to them being born in this era (after the nubuwwat of Nabi [sallallahu alaihi wa sallam]) they are counted as the ummat. For further details, refer to

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
