This is read with a jaundiced eye and is itself a bias.  One might
understand that because there will be no other prophet, so Ibrahim did
not live.  You certainly don't forget the other sayings of the same
prophet that if there would be any other prophet after him, it would
have been Omar(ra).  Once a rational mind takes this in consideration
when understanding the comment over Ibrahim, there remains not an iota
of doubt that prophethood is closed.

This is the problem that you always have to bring book like this and
never a authentic book.  Further, please quote the Isnad of this
hadith.  This hadith has no Isnad and is ungrounded and unfounded.

No.  It proves to the contrary.

That is true.  That mosque was the special status mosque built by a
prophet like Al-Aqsa (By Sulaiman AS) and Kaba (By Ibrahim AS) where
reward for praying is much more than in ordinary mosques.  Even, these
are mosques for which a Muslim is permiited to skip local mosque.  So it
simply proves that he was the last prophet and the mosque was last. 
Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and his Baitul Fiqir is both false in light of this
