Well for us, Muslims, the blessings of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAAW, the
Final Prophet is enough which is still going on for His Ummah. But 
those who have gone out of the fold of the Prophethood of Rasoolullah,
for them there is no share in these ongoing Blessings.

Yes but he did not live. Besides Rasoolullah SAAW is also on record to
have said about Hazrat Umer RA that if there had been any prophet after
Rasoolullah, it would have been Umer. Why did you ignore this Hadith?

If there is no finality of prohethood, why did Mirza Ghulam Ahmad said
the following:

  "Blessed is he who has recognised me. Of all the paths to God I
  am the Last Path, and of all his Lights, I am the last Light. 
  Unfortunate is he who forsakes me, because without me all is 
  darkness".  (Kashti-e-Nooh, Roohani Khazain, vol.19, p.61)

  "I am the only one selected in this Ummah to get the name of 
  ‘Prophet’. No one else deserved this name.... and it was bound to 
  happen... so that as mentioned in the Sahih Hadith that ‘there will
  be only one such person’, that prophecy is fulfilled." 
     (Haqeeqatul Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol 22 p.407

Don't you think that Mirza Ghulam has very cleverly stolen the title 
of Khatam-un-Nabiyeen for Rasoolullah SAAW and applied it on himself?
Can you tell us which Hadith Mirza Ghulam is quoting in the second 
quotation?

  > 3. "I am the akhar of the prophets and my mosque is the
  > akhar of the mosques." (Sahih Muslim)

Rasoolullah SAAW is absolutely right. It is you have misunderstood the
meaning of the above Quotation. You have not noted that Rasoolullah 
used the words 'my majid'. After the Masjid-e-Nabawi at Madina 
Munawwarah, there will never be another Masjid-e-Nabawi. It doesn't 
mean that there wont be any masjid after that.

> We Ahmadis believe that just like masjid nabi is not the

After the above explanation your argument proves to be wrong.

> The meaning of khatam in Quran is the same as akhar here.
> Both mean, the best or the most exalted.

Since when the word khatam started meaning 'the best' or 'the most 
exalted'?

Do you know how many times mirza Ghulam has used the word khatam in 
his books and what meanings he has taken for this word? Surely your 
founder knew better than you. Look at the following quotations:

1)  KHATAM-UL-WALAD - the Last Son!
"I WAS KAHTAM-UL-WALAD (Seal of Son) FOR MY FATHER. NO CHILD WAS 
BORN AFTER ME." 
(Braheen Ahmadiyya part 5, Roohani Khazain, vol. 21 p. 113)

2)  KHATAM-UL-ANBIYAH - THE LAST PROPHET
"EISA Ibne MARYAM WAS THE KHATAM-UL-ANBIYAH FOR THE ISRAELITE
PROPHETS." (Braheen Ahmadiyya part 5, Roohani Khazain vol.21 p.267)

3)  KHATAM-UL-KHULAFA - The Last Khalifa
"ACCORDING TO SPIRITUALITY I AM THE KHATAM-UL-KHULAFA IN ISLAM, 
JUST AS MASEEH IBNE MARYAM IS THE KHATAM-UL-KHULAFA IN ISRAELITE 
CHAIN." (Kishtee-e-Nooh, Roohani Khazain vol.19 p.17)

Above quotations from the books of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani, clearly
proves that by the word 'KHATAM' Mirza Ghulam Ahmad meant ‘FINAL’ or
something which has been sealed. Question is WHY THE MEANING OF THE 
SAME WORD IS CHANGED when it comes to KHATAM-UN-NABIEEN? If indeed the
meaning of Khatamun Nabiyeen is that more prophets will come with the 
approval and seal of Holy Prophet, then according to arabic grammer 
word ‘Nabiyeen’ means that there should be at least three more such 
prophets. But the writings of Mirza Ghulam tells us quite a different
story.

He says:

  "Blessed is he who has recognised me. Of all the paths to God I
  am the Last Path, and of all his Lights, I am the last Light. 
  Unfortunate is he who forsakes me, because without me all is 
  darkness".  (Kashti-e-Nooh, Roohani Khazain, vol.19, p.61)

  "I am the only one selected in this Ummah to get the name of 
  ‘Prophet’. No one else deserved this name.... and it was bound to 
  happen... so that as mentioned in the Sahih Hadith that ‘there will
  be only one such person’, that prophecy is fulfilled." 
  (Haqeeqatul Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol 22 p.407)

It seems to me that the whole exercise of mind boggling explanation
regarding the word 'khatam' was to open this door to make room for his
own claim of prophethood and as soon as he entered through this door, 
he closed it shut. In other words he stole the title from Rasoolullah 
SAAW and applied it on himself.

> may the curse of Allah be upon the liars.

Ameen.
