Muhammad (saw)

—- —- —- the divine seal of messengership


Allah (swt) in His infinite mercy and wisdom sent a series of guides for the guidance of mankind. Starting with Hazrat Adam (as), the series of guides continued through Hazrat Nuh (Noah), Hazrat Ismail (Ishmael), Hazrat Ibrahim (Abraham), Hazrat Musa (Moses), Hazrat Isa (Christ) and so on till such time that Allah (swt) sent Hazrat Mohammed (pbuh).

While the Holy Quran remembers the events of several of the previous prophets, it pays rich tributes of the Holy Prophet of Islam, Hazrat Mohammed (pbuh). At times, Allah (set) lovingly calls him “Yaseen”, at times “Ta Ha” or “Mudassir” and orders mankind to look up to him as the one blessed with the “most perfect morals.” Such is the position of the Holy Prophet (pbuh), that Allah calls him “Khatamun Nabiyeen” or the “Seal of the Prophets.”

‘Mohammed is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Apostle of Allah and the Last of the prophets.’ (Surah Ahzab, verse 40)

The discussion of the “Seal of the Prophets” is an important one – from a personal belief point of view as well as to understand Islam and mor recent events in history.

Simply put, it means that in the eyes of Allah, there will not be any new prophet or messneger to follow the Holy Prophet of Islam (pbuh). It means that his book is the final book and it also means that the religion – Islam which he brought is the final religion from Allah. These conclusions are not pulled out of a hat; rather they are from verses of the Quran and traditions of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) which should leave no doubt in the minds of Muslims and non Muslims alike regarding the finality of the Prophethood of the Holy Prophet of Islam (pbuh).

Pay attention to this tradition.

“My position in relation to the prophets who came before me can be explained by the following example: A man erected a building and adorned this edifice with great beauty, but he left an empty niche, in the corner where just one brick was missing. People looked around the building and marveled at its beauty, but wondered why a brick was missing from that niche? I am like unto that one missing brick and I am the last in the line of the Prophets.” (Bukhari, Kitab-ul-Manaqib). This Hadith has also been related in Muslim, Tirmizi, and Musnad of Ahmad.

Traditions emphasise that the belief in the finality of the prophethood of the Holy Prophet of Islam (pbuh) is important because one who believes otherwise goes out of the fold of Islam. This is one of the primary reasons why “new age” beliefs of Qadianis and Bahais are rejected by Islam. By believing that Allah sent messengers after the Holy Prophet of Islam (pbuh), they have gone against the principle of finality of prophethood. Hence they are considered to disbelievers and outside the fold of Islam.

The primary objective of this website is to establish conclusively the finality of the messengership and prophethood of the Holy Prophet of Islam (pbuh). This will be done with a thorough examination of verses of Quran, the traditions of the Prophet (pbuh) and through the study of Arabic literature and the views of Islamic scholars.

Towards this objective, we will also touch upon and reject the arguments of the false claimants of prophethood. In doing this we will understand what was the reason for their claims and who were their supporters.

This site is dedicated to the Chief of the Prophets and the Seal of the Messengers – Hazrat Mohammed (pbuh). We are hopeful that it will be accepted in the way of Allah and through this effort we may be successful on the Day of Judgement.
