The Belief in the Termination of Prophethood

It is the belief of Muslims that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is the Final Prophet.  Almighty Allah has ended the galaxy of Prophethood on Him.  Now, no new Prophet will come.  Near the Day of Judgment, Hadhrat ‘Isa (May peace be upon him) will come, not as a Prophet, but as a follower of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and he will follow the Shariah of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  From some quarters, filthy attempts are being made to create doubts in the minds of this belief.  Using logic and philosophy, attempts have been made.  This belief is established by the verses of the Holy Quran and the frequently-occurring Hadith (Mutawatir).  Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam has refuted the philosophical arguments presented by the author of Tahzeerunnas.  He writes:

 

Translation: Now we ask those people, where are those thoughts now that kept dragging the whole world into hell by reciting “Kullu bid’atin Dhalala,” (i.e. every new thing is a misguidance) is there any such philosophical argument in the Holy Quran or the Hadith? Or did anyone in the blessed era ever present such an argument, then what do you deserve by starting such a filthy argument and who will be sinner as long as the arguments rage back and forth? (Anwar-e-Ahmadi,Pg No: 54)

 

After this Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam mentions the Hadith of Hadhrat Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him) in which Hadhrat Umar started reciting from a copy of Talmud in the presence of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) expressed His anger and said: If Moosa (May peace be upon him) was present here, he would have no choice but to follow Me.  Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam writes after mentioning this Hadith:

 

Translation:  Now everybody can understand when such a small act of a sincere companion like Hadhrat 'Umar‘s (May Allah be well pleased with him) agitated the Prophet( Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) to such an extent then what about the speech of somebody and anybody which shakes the very belief of the Termination of Prophethood?  How much do you think it would agitate the Prophet?  Will it be forgiven?  No, Never.  Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran: "Lo!  Those who malign Allah and His messenger, Allah hath cursed them in the world and the hereafter, and hath prepared for them the doom of the disdained.”  Surah Ahzab, Verse-57.  (Anwar-e-Ahmadi, Pg. No. 55)
