Yes Mr. Irshad, the Maulana very clearly states that 'khatam an nabiyyeen'
is glorification of Prophet Muhammad (SAS). He adds,"There is no glory in
being the last or the first. It is only unenlightened people who translate
'khatamannabiyyeen as the last prophet. It is not so in the eyes of
enlightened people".He says further that if a prophet, in his life time or
after his death does appear even then Prophet Muhammad (SAS) is khataman
nabiyyeen. What more do you want to prove that in his opinion 'khatam an
nabiyyeen' does not mean last in time prophet. InshaAllah you will get the
material soon, may be by the end of this week.
