[qadianism] Re: The Finality of Prophethood - Concensus of Scholars
By Farhan Qureshi @yahoo.com


Then explain these Quranic verses:

"And Joseph did come to you before with clear proofs, but you ceased
not to be in doubt concerning that with which he came to you till,
when he died, you said: 'Allah will never raise up a Messenger after
Thus does Allah adjudge as lost those who transgress, (and) are
doubters." (Al Quran: 40:35)

"O Children of Adam! If Messengers come to you from among yourselves,
Rehearsing my signs unto you, fear God and do good deeds as then, no
fear or grief shall touch you." (Al Quran, 7:36)
