Chapter Summary

As Muslims believe, the demise of the noble Prophet of Islam brought to an end the abiding dynasty of prophets. Muslims confidently believe that they are the ones to receive the last divine Prophet, that God chose to address his final words to them and that no other sun is ever to rise in the skies of prophethood again; which is why they ignore and disregard invitations from any other claimants. This chapter addresses three questions: Whether the finality of the noble Prophet of Islam is an intra-religious claim or an extra-religious one, Does the finality relate to the religion or the Prophet? and Finally Why was it that the Prophet of Islam became the last prophet? The first characteristic of a prophet is that he is instructed through the channel of revelation and is in contact with the realm of transcendence or immanence.
