Question

What are the sahih Hadiths that say that Muhammad is the last prophet?

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions. Our Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is the last Messenger of Allah. Allah says: [Muhammad (SAW) is not the father of any man among you, but he is the Messenger of Allâh and the last (end) of the Prophets. And Allâh is Ever All­Aware of everything].[33:40] JABIR BIN ABDULLAH narrated, the Prophet (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “My similitude in comparison with the other Prophets is that of a man who has build a house completely and excellently except for a place of one brick. When people enter the house they admire it beauty and say: Out for the place of this brick , how splendid the house will be”. Reported by BUKHARI AND MUSLIM. In a narration of ABU HURAIRAH in (SAHIHAIN): People go about it, and wonder at its beauty, but say:”If only this brick was put in its place! So I am the brick, and I am the last of the Prophets”. Prophet (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Prophets had been ruling on the children of ISRAEEL, whenever a Prophet died, another Prophet becomes his successor.Indeed there is no Prophet after me, only Caliphs will be, i.e. after Him (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). JABIR BIN SAMURA said: “ I saw a seal in the back of Prophet (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), it was like an egg of a pigeon”. IBN HAJAR said in his explanation of SAHIH BUKHARI: “IMAM QURTUBI said: “All the Hadith confirm that the Seal of Prophet (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) was something red, visible near the left shoulder. Its size was equal to an egg of pigeon if minimized, and equal to a fist if maximized. The scholars said: “The secret of it being in left side is that the heart is in the same side”. Sending the Prophet (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) is a form of mercy of Allah, He honoured people by ending the Prophecy on Him and by completing Islam on his hands”. Almighty Allah Says in his book (QURAN) and the Prophet (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) has declared that He is the last Messenger of Allah. There is no Prophet after him. Who ever claims being Prophet after him, is a big liar, a deceiver and a cheater. We ask Almighty Allah to protect us straying from the straight path. Allah knows best.
