Muhammad: The Last Prophet?

Muslims claim Muhammad was the last prophet, and was the most important prophet. Is this supported in the Qur’an? Let’s see what the Qur’an says.

Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Apostle of Allah and the Last of the prophets; and Allah is cognizant of all things.
(Qur’an, Surah 33:401).

This is what the Bible says concerning the last days near the end of the world.

And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
(Revelation 11:3 RSV).

Muslims claim Muhammad was the last prophet. The Bible indicates there are more prophets to come. If the Muslims are correct, then the Qur’an and the Bible contradict each other. One of these two books must be wrong.

As seen on the page Was The Bible Corrupted?, Jesus makes it highly unlikely that the Bible is in error. But this does not necessarily mean the Qur’an is in error on this point either. It could be a problem of interpretation.

There are two ways of reading Surah 33:40.

  1. The verse can be read on its own.
  2. The verse can be read in context with 33:37-39, along with the beginning of the Surah (33:4-5).

1. Reading Surah 33:40 on its own.
