Our Motto : 'In-Allah-ha-Ma'anaa' ("Be not grieved, for surely Allah is with us." - The Holy Quran 9:40). We find spiritual strength, courage and comfort, in the times of trials and  hardships, from this Divine Quranic revelation that descended upon the pure heart of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him), so as to console and compose him during one of the most perilous moments of his life. <Please click the 'Our Motto' link on our homepage for more details>

Books Section > The Last Prophet (Akhri Nabi) by Maulana Muhammad Ali > Summary


Summary:


Printer-friendly Page

 

The sum total of all this is that Mian Sahib had said that the meaning of Khatam an-Nabiyyin in the lexicons was not the last of the prophets and the meaning he had rendered -- that is to say, such a prophet by following whom prophets will be made -- was mentioned in the lexicons in a clear-cut manner without any interpretation attached thereto. (see Chapter 1)

I have, however, shown from almost all the lexicons, the Traditions and the sayings of the Imams that they all rendered Khatam an-Nabiyyin as the Last of the Prophets. And this is also the meaning which the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement also gave to these words. On the other hand, Mian Sahib has not produced even a weak or counterfeit authority in his support -- neither any idiom of Arabic usage nor a saying of the Founder that the term Khatam an-Nabiyyin meant a prophet by following whom prophets will be made in future. Khatam may mean a "seal" or the "last". But Khatam an-Nabiyyin in both cases means the Last of the Prophets.

Now, either Mian Sahib should prove his own meanings from any tradition [hadith] or if not, at least from any sayings of the Imams, or from the Arabic dictionary that the phrase Khatam al-qaum did not mean the last (person) of the people, but a person by following whom people were to be made. It is only in this manner that his statement could be considered true. It should also be borne in mind that this very point settles the question of prophethood, because if the meaning of the term Khatam an-Nabiyyin is the Last of the Prophets, the issue about the Promised Messiah's prophethood is automatically settled that is to say, no prophet could appear after the Last Prophet.
