[qadianism] Re: The Finality of Prophethood - Guidance of the Messenger of Allah(SAW)
By imam @irshad.org

Allah(SWT) has decreed in the holy Quran:

    "And We never sent a messenger save with the language
    of his folk, that he [Hazrat Muhammad(SAW)] might make
    (the message) clear for them. Then Allah sendeth whom
    He will astray, and guideth whom He will. He is the Mighty,
    the Wise."  (The Holy Quran, Ibrahim 14:4)

    "It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter
    has been decided by Allah and His Messenger to have any
    option about their decision: if any one disobeys Allah and
    His Messenger, he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path."
        (The Holy Quran, Al-Ahzab 33:36)

Below, please find a few of the over two hundred hadith of the
holy Prophet, Muhammad(SAW), in this regard.  Take heed, oh
you who claim to believe in divinity of Islam and prophethood of
Muhammad(SAW).  Save your souls and that of your families.

The Messenger of Allah(SAW) said:

    "There will arise thirty impostors in my Ummah and each one
    of them will pronounce to the world that he is a prophet, but I
    am the last in the line of the Prophets of God and no Prophet
    will come after me."
    (Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi)

    "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, Muslim,Tirmidhi, Musnad Ahmad,
    Musnad Abu Dawud Tayalisi, Babu Khatimin-Nabiyyin)

    "I am Muhammad, I am Ahmad, I am the effacer and infidelity
    shall be erased through me; I am the assembler. People shall
    be assembled on Doomsday after my time. And I am the last
    in the sense that no prophet shall succeed me."
    (Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Muatta)

    "We are the last (ummah) but will precede all on the Day of
    Resurrection except that the Book was given to them before us."
    (Bukhari, Muslim)

    "No Prophet will come after me and there will, therefore, be
    no other community of followers of any new Prophet."
    (Baihaqi, Tabarani)

    "The tribe of Israel was guided by prophets. When a prophet
    passed away, another prophet succeeded him. But no
    prophet will come after me; only caliphs will succeed me."

    "The chain of Messengers and Prophets has come to an end.
    There shall be no Messenger nor Prophet after me."
    (Tirmidhi, Musnad Ahmad, Anas bin Malik)

    "I am Muhammad, the unlettered prophet of Allah. I am
    Muhammad, the unlettered prophet of Allah. I am Muhammad,
    the unlettered prophet of Allah. There will be no prophet after
    me."    (Musnad Ahmad)
