In the name of Allah, the most merciful and the most gracious. May I be forgiven if I commit a sin even asking this question.

I read somewhere that there is a difference between Messengers (Rasuls) and Prophets (Nabis). A Messenger is apparently someone who receives new Sharia from Allah, and the Prophet is someone who can only guide his people to the ways of the previous Messenger. If so, can there be a new Prophet after Muhammad (PBUH)? Is there explicit mention of this issue in the Quran?

Again, I could be completely wrong, so please forgive me if I am.

Verse (33:40) 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.

What else you want to prove that prophet Muhammad S.A.W. is the last Messenger.

Allaho-Akber: see the ayah, it say, ... he is a RASOOL of Allah and seal to the Nabiyeen.

  • this answer lacks an important component: proof of that "seal of the " means "last". – qdinar May 17 '19 at 6:48

After Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) there shall be no prophet, as the Prophet was Seal of the Prophets. The Scholars agree that every Messenger is a Prophet, but not every Prophet is a messenger. Now, if the Messenger was Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who was sent as the final Messenger, with Messenger being higher in status than Prophets, then it would be logical to assume that there would be no Prophet and Messenger sent after the Prophet (PBUH). This is supported by Tafsir Ibn Kathir, 33:40 and Sheikh Uthaymeen.

Every good I have mentioned is from Allah (SWT) and everything bad I mentioned is from me and I seek forgiveness for my shortcomings and mistakes. enter image description here


NO their will be no neither any prophets after Muhammad,because Allah said that that is the last prophet in the world and Allah swear at prophet Muhammad S.A.W every time say S.A.W when you hear the name of all the prophets including MUHAMMAD S.A.W.

  Thank you
