Need not to run-after the personalities[Ijlal,Dr.Shabbir, Dr Qamar etc], just see what quran says.In fact Muslim ummah taken this important matter in a romantic and sentimental way, whereas it should be seen in the light of core message of quran. Quran never claims the end of nabowat, rather it talks about the status of Muhammad as a KHATIM ANNABIYEEN. So it is obligatory on each quranic student to comprehend the true sense of this verse under its context, tasreef alayaat while considering rattil-alquran.  
In verse 33/40 "khatim" is faail, on the paradigm of hakim. Mind! Allah is not khatim but Muhammad is khatim in this verse, it means seal of nabiyeen.  
Khatim never mean last or end, to infer the sense of this verse you have to ponder into alquranic verses which strongly emphasize the continuity of risalat even in the language of the people in each era. Be cool and think then decide yourself.

I am certainly no idolator, but if "Muhammad is the seal of the prophets" ever meant anything other than that he was the last of the prophets, then shouldn't this fact have manifested itself at some point in Muslim history? Is there anything at all in history that supports that Muslims have ever interpreted this as anything but that he was the last of the prophets, be it in the hadiths, traditions, prose or poetry?  
 
Given such a novel interpretation of a classic understanding, is there evidence that can be produced supporting it? Or perhaps I am misunderstanding something since you have used lots of non-english terminology that I am not entirely familiar with. For example, could you please explain what "nabowat" and "khatim annabiyeen" is?

Mr. Noman, As-Salaam 'Alaiykum Sir.  
 
There are two important things you have to understand Sir.  
 
First thing is that the Arabic word Khatam DOES NOT mean last, ending or final. The Arabic word for FINAL is "Akhiir" / أخير This is not the word used in 33:40 to describe Muhammad.  
 
The second thing that you must understand is the answer I will give to this question you asked:  
 
NOMAN: "if "Muhammad is the seal of the prophets" ever meant anything other than that he was the last of the prophets, then shouldn't this fact have manifested itself at some point in Muslim history?"  
 
DAMON: Whatever you do, PLEASE DO NOT underestimate "Official Decree" and "Official Doctrine" and to go against it is punishable by death. If you don't believe me just go into a so-called Muslim Country and teach the things that are taught here at Aastana and I can guarantee you will be facing death sooner than you think.  
 
THIS is how inaccurate understandings of Islam have been able to survive in history and it is also how it continues to survive today.

"PLEASE DO NOT underestimate "Official Decree" and "Official Doctrine" and to go against it is punishable by death."  
 
I don't underestimate this nor am I particularly naive about the status of "Muslim" nations in the world today. However, the fact remains that yours is a novel interpretation. There is no way around this fact short of producing evidence in support of it. Or at least a sound argument based in history that explains how even native-speaking Arabs today and throughout history (as far as anyone knows) believed that Muhammad was the last of the prophets.  
 
An argument being born from establishment does not alone disqualify it. As the Qur'an repeatedly commands, "produce evidence if you are truthful". Besides which, languages change, as anyone who's ever read Shakespeare is keenly aware of.  
 
Anyway, my original question is answered so thank you.

Mr. Noman ! Hope you agree with the perennial fact pointed out by brother Damon.  
Rasul/Nabi are not super-natural being, as i understood from quran the term Rasul mean a person who conveys the message of Allah to people having the qualites mentioned in 2/129:  
رَبَّنَا وَابْعَثْ فِيهِمْ رَسُولاً مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِكَ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ العَزِيزُ الحَكِيمُ,  
"Rasula-nabya" means who does convey the Allah's message and have the authority to implement it in his society[head of state]..  
The Nabi [the head of state] can appoint heads in different departments of state for example military chief, head of  
judiciary etc.  
Muhammad is an attribute of Nabi who has attained the station of Mahmood [the qualities described in verse 17/79]  
Khatim means seal [the authority]  
The verse 33/40: describing the never ending process of "character Mohammad" being khatim annabiyeen in each era. the first part of this verse elaborating that "the character Mohammad" couldn't be the ancestor of any rajjal of the time[ because this is eternal character in each era].  
The second part describing its social status and his authority .  
The sense of verse 33/40: Muhammad is not the ancestor of any of your rajjal, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets:  
مَّا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِّن رِّجَالِكُمْ وَلَكِن رَّسُولَ اللَّهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ  
Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets:

The Nabi [the head of state] can appoint heads in different departments of state for example military chief, head of judiciary etc refer to verse 2/246.  
أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الْمَلَإِ مِن بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِن بَعْدِ مُوسَى إِذْ قَالُواْ لِنَبِيٍّ لَّهُمُ ابْعَثْ لَنَا مَلِكًا نُّقَاتِلْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ  
Muhammad is an attribute of Nabi who has attained the station of Mahmood [the qualities described in verse 17/79]  
وَمِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَتَهَجَّدْ بِهِ نَافِلَةً لَّكَ عَسَى أَن يَبْعَثَكَ رَبُّكَ مَقَامًا مَّحْمُودًا  
Khatim means seal [the authority]  
Verse 33/40:  
مَّا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِّن رِّجَالِكُمْ وَلَكِن رَّسُولَ اللَّهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ  
This verse 33/40 describing a never ending process of “character Mohammad" being the khatim annabiyeen in each era. The first part of the verse elaborating “the character Mohammad” couldn’t be the ancestor of any rajjal in the time [because this is eternal character could be available in any era].  
The second part of the verse describing its social status and his authority.  
The sense of verse 33/40: [the character mohammad is not a proper noun] Mohammad is not the ancestor of any of your rajjal, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets:

The quranic stance about risalat  
 
let us see some verses about closure of the coming of messenger, verse 71 of sura 39  
 
وسِيقَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِلَى جَهَنَّمَ زُمَرًا حَتَّى إِذَا جَاءُوهَا فُتِحَتْ أَبْوَابُهَا  
 
and those who rejected will be driven to hell in groups, till they reach it, the gates will be opened . and وَقَالَ لَهُمْ خَزَنَتُهَا its keepers will say  
 
أَلَمْ يَأْتِكُمْ رُسُلٌ مِنْكُمْ يَتْلُونَ عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتِ رَبِّكُمْ وَيُنْذِرُونَكُمْ لِقَاءَ يَوْمِكُمْ هَذَا  
 
Did not the Messengers come to You from yourselves, reciting to You the Verses of Your Lord, and warning You of the Meeting of This Day of yours?  
 
َقالُوا بَلَى وَلَكِنْ حَقَّتْ كَلِمَةُ الْعَذَابِ عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ  
 
they will say: "Yes, but the word of torment has been justified against those who rejected to accept .  
 
Note that  
1,.. messengers will be from amongst us ,not an outsider .  
2,.. messenger will recite by himself .  
3 .. messenger will warn us of the day of meeting .  
 
Considering the concept of the Mullah none of the past RASOOL ( messenger ) was from amongst us ,nor did he himself recite the AAYAT of RAB ( آیات ربکم ) nor did he warn us ,as they have left us centuries ago .  
A messenger according to this verse should be from us , should teach us by himself and warn us of the consequences .)  
Another verse no 21 from sura 3  
 
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَكْفُرُونَ بِآيَاتِ اللَّهِ وَيَقْتُلُونَ النَّبِيِّينَ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ وَيَقْتُلُونَ الَّذِينَ يَأْمُرُونَ بِالْقِسْطِ مِنَ النَّاسِ فَبَشِّرْهُمْ بِعَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ  
 
21. Verily! those who reject the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh and kill the Prophets without right, and kill those men who order just dealings, ... announce to them a painful torment.  
In this verse the verbs used are not in past tense ,the verbs are  
یکفرون یقتلون  
These words can either be translated in present tense or future tense . these words can in no way be translated into past tense . So when this verse was revealed to prophet Mohammad there were so many انبیاء and it is a non ending continuous process .  
Another verse no 4 from sura 14  
 
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِنْ رَسُولٍ إِلا بِلِسَانِ قَوْمِهِ لِيُبَيِّنَ لَهُمْ فَيُضِلُّ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَيَهْدِي مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ  
 
4. and we always sent a Messenger in the language of his people, so that he the messenger makes the message clear for them. And then God does not guide the one who wants to remain misguided but guides only those who wants to be guided because He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.

Did they explain to you why it is said that S Mohammed is not the LAST nabi, but he is KHATIMULNABIYEEN?  

Comments by: Nargis On 20 December 2013Report Abuse
Ill copy paste an old post :- http://www.aastana.com/blog/aastanablog.asp?QID=1720  
 
Dr Qamar Zaman: مَا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِنْ رِجَالِكُمْ وَلَكِنْ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمًا  
 
Now as you can see in the word خا تَم there is a زبر Zabar over the alphabet َت , So the paradigm isفا عَل with a زبر zabar over عWhereas in the word خا ِتم there is a Zer زیر under the alphabet ت ,so the paradigm is فاعل with a زیر zer under ع The words found under the paradigm فاعل ( fa il )with a زیر are کاتب katib قاتل qatil قادر qadir حامل hamil etc  
 
--- as you can see the meanings of the words made under this paradigm has inherent meanings of having faculty of a doer performer ,or an operator .  
 
The word خاتم with a زبر over ت is not under this paradigm but it is under the paradigm فاعل with a زبر over ت .The other word made under the paradigm with a زبر over the alphabet ع is عالم meaning universe with a زبر over ل . So to construe the meaning of خاتَم as the last prophet is through interpretation  
 
So KHATIM with zer or zabr over or under, is still the faculty of a doer...  
 
Waseem Ameer :-:-Although, Khatam is at the paradigm of Fa-al, same as Aalam. But in lexicons, Fa-al and Fa-il has no difference, but still it gives you the meaning of doer.  
 
Ameen Ahsan Islahi on page 239 of Tadabbur -e- Quran Book 6  
 
. دونون اھل لغت کے نزدیک بالکل ھم معنی ھین " خاتم KHATIM خاتم Khatam  
 
Last man of a nation, Result of a thing , Last stamp of a letter, all these things are included in its meanings .”Although neither خاتم with زیر nor خاتم with زبر means to stop .The categorical word meaning the last is not used which is آخر ,this has made the whole confusion  
 
Here comes the interesting part from  
 
Lane :- .  
 
6. Line 21 onward, column 1, page 703: “ ..Tha last of a company of men; as  
also KHATAM and KHATIM: whence  
 
Here one can see Lane does not differentiate between KHATIM of khaTAM, so there is no difference in its faculty as a doer. Katib is a doer and Alam is a doer, no difference between these two being the agents, person who are katibs or Alams - It gets better:-  
 
Line 10-11 on column 2, page 703:  
 
“ Or KHATIM signifies the agent [i.e. the person sealing or stamping];”  
 
Brother Bkanwar, :-  
33:40 مَّا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِّن رِّجَالِكُمْ وَلَكِن رَّسُولَ اللَّهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمًا  
 
No one can be praised single handedly, among your ancestors,you mankind; But for the message bearers for the One who is not a diety for worship, and those informing the mankind with this announcement of great benefit resulting in knowledge, predominating in thoughtfulness and truth bearing a seal of its authenticity . And the One, who is not the diety for worship, continues to make it clear both inferentially and intuitively, all (such truth) as he has caused to exist.  
 
I have choosen to translate رِجَالٌ as mankind. I have translated أَبَا as ancestors.  
 
The reason for taking رِجَالٌ as mankind are several. But all are linguistic. Please first of all understand it in Urdu, then it should be easier to understand in language of Quran. In Urdu آدمى is a word commonly used for male gender. But in fact it is only by common use that it is considered of male gender. In fact this word is neutral in gender. For example when we say " Adami Kam Chuor Ha", it includes both men and women. Furthermore, رِجَلَتهٌ is not a word that appears in Quran, although one may find it later in Hadith literature, clearly supporting the point, I am trying to make. Hope this helps.

Dear Noman, why is the word akhir used in the Quran but then khatama is translated to the last?

Comments by: noman On 20 December 2013Report Abuse
"Dear Noman, why is the word akhir used in the Quran but then khatama is translated to the last?"  
 
I don't know, but the Qur'an has repeatedly used the phrases "seal your heart", "seal your vision", and generally to seal one's senses all meaning to close off one's senses. There is really no ambiguity as to what "seal of the prophets" ought to mean given how khatam has been used elsewhere throughout the Qur'an unless one wants there to be; namely that with Prophet Muhammad, Prophethood is all-together closed off. This is made all the less ambiguous given that the Qur'an can often be quite poetic in its prose ("Seal of the Prophets" sounds more poetic than "Last of the Prophets").  
 
And frankly one needs to seriously ask why we need another prophet. All messengers/prophets came with books (the message) and given that the Qur'an is the last and perfected message from God, there is no reason for another messenger to appear. For a prophet that is not a divinely appointed messenger can only be deluded by definition.

Comments by: Damon On 20 December 2013Report Abuse
Khatam DOES NOT mean to close or shut or "Seal Shut" as you put it in a primary NOR solitary sense. The Arabic word which DOES mean those things is أغلق [aghlaq]which means "Closed" and related term إغلاق [ighlaaq] which means "Closing".  
 
The definition of the root word ختم [khatama] means to place a stamp on a thing or to mark a thing with a seal or stamp. (look it up). The Arabic noun خاتم [khaatim] literally means signet, a seal ring. The significance of this is that a signet ring is one that has a stamp or seal on it as a symbol of official recognition or approval of something. Thus, those ayaat in The Quran which says Allah seals a person's heart or vision, this means that their intellects and powers of observation are officially MARKED (in the sight of Allah) and RECOGNIZED as being basically worthless and invalid.  
 
In those ayaat you had made reference to, these certain people are first DESCRIBED and their ACTIONS/DEEDS are described. It is within THAT CONTEXT that it is said that their hearts and vision are stamped/sealed as a sign to The Momineen for how to recognize such people and such characteristics when you meet them.  
 
As already pointed out to you earlier, the Arabic word for Final and/or Ending is "Akhiir". And the Arabic word for Conclusion is خلص [khalaSa]. And I just shared with you the actual meaning and understanding of KhaTaMa. You have to look all of these words up and seriously ponder. If you can, you must do this while somehow emptying your mind of what Dr Shabbir teaches. You have to practice intellectual responsibility (17:36, 39:17-18) and look at everything within their original context as well as their original language.  
 
You made mention of the terms "Prophet" and "Prophethood". May I ask what those are? What is a "prophet" and what is "prophethood"?  
 

Comments by: moazzam On 20 December 2013
The meanings of Khatam is to seal, but the appropriate sense of this term will be determined by the context and the core message of quran. For example the verses 6/46 and 2/7 خَتَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِهِمْ وَعَلَىٰ سَمْعِهِمْ وَعَلَىٰ أَبْصَارِهِمْ غِشَاوَةٌ  
in these verses Allah is putting sealover heart and mind whereas in verse 33/40 Khatim is Mohammad not Allah.Moreover this verse must be seen along with the other verses where need of Risalat has been clearly described in each era in all nations even in their language, as I mentioned in my above post.  
Remember the concept of Alkitab and prophet-hood must be taken into account while discussing the verse 33/40. The same message[Alkitab] has been given to all prophets, thus no need of other book and new message.  
Nabi/rasul is also called Imam annas[the same task as the prophet have], if people are allergic with the tern Rasul/Nabi they seems quite agree with the continuity of IMAMAT. Only the word play.

Dear Brother Damon, I have difficulty taking your request to "practice intellectual responsibility" seriously when you haven't put forth any evidence as per my initial request. I am not asking anyone to agree with an "officially decreed" manner of thought, only to be honest that you have an opinion about something without any evidence supporting it. There is nothing wrong with it so long as it isn't pushed as a well-researched fact.  
 
And you are asking me to interpret sealing of the senses as being "officially MARKED (in the sight of Allah) and RECOGNIZED as being basically worthless and invalid" rather than the to-the-point sealing. The vagueness of your interpretation only raises more questions than it answers. When a letter is sealed, yes it is a mark of official recognition, but it is also sealed or closed. I'll read your last words.

NOMAN: Dear Brother Damon, I have difficulty taking your request to "practice intellectual responsibility" seriously when you haven't put forth any evidence as per my initial request.  
 
DAMON: Sir, based upon the questions you are asking and your response to the answers given to you, it is my observation that you are having difficulty taking my request to "practice intellectual responsibility" seriously because of the word "responsibility" in that request. And WHICH initial request did you ask me to put forth evidence for and that I failed to do?  
 
NOMAN: I am not asking anyone to agree with an "officially decreed" manner of thought, only to be honest that you have an opinion about something without any evidence supporting it.  
 
DAMON: Are you honest enough to acknowledge that the "Accepted" understanding and interpretation of 33:40 lacks supporting evidence (besides fear of punishment due to disagreement and rejection of it)?  
 
NOMAN: There is nothing wrong with it so long as it isn't pushed as a well-researched fact.  
 
DAMON: I beg your pardon Sir, we do not push ANYTHING on ANYONE here. We merely do the research and present our findings for others to read and consider. Whether they accept or reject our findings is not our concern. The truth of The Quran's message and purpose is on the march and I am witnessing on a daily basis how the lies and misinterpretations of this book are being severely shattered (17:81 , 21:18 , 34:49).  
 
NOMAN: And you are asking me to interpret sealing of the senses as being "officially MARKED (in the sight of Allah) and RECOGNIZED as being basically worthless and invalid" rather than the to-the-point sealing  
 
DAMON: No, I have ASKED you in my last post to look these words up for yourself. I gave you the Arabic words for final, ending, conclusion and closed. I also gave you the definition of the root word KhaTaMa. After providing these definitions I requested that you go and long these words up for yourself instead of taking my word for it. Any Arabic Lexicon or Dictionary should do as long as it's exhaustive and is Fussha as opposed to 'Ameyya.  
 
NOMAN: The vagueness of your interpretation only raises more questions than it answers.  
 
DAMON: No fault of mine Sir. You are the one with the questions, not me.  
 
NOMAN: When a letter is sealed, yes it is a mark of official recognition, but it is also sealed or closed. I'll read your last words.  
 
DAMON: A letter is CLOSED with or without an official seal. The official seal is only an insignia for official approval purposes. The letter was already sealed when they SEALED IT...that is, when they CLOSED it before even STAMPING/MARKING it with an official seal. I just mailed a letter a few weeks ago to a friend. I closed it BEFORE placing the postage STAMP on it. :-)

The words found under the paradigm فاعل ( fa’il )with a زیر are کاتب katib قاتل qatil قادر qadir حامل hamil etc as you can see the meanings of these words made under this paradigm has inherent meanings of having faculty of a DOER performer ,or an operator  
 
NOMAN:- There is really no ambiguity as to what "seal of the prophets" ought to mean given how khatam has been used elsewhere throughout the Qur'an unless one wants there to be; namely that with Prophet Muhammad, Prophethood is all-together closed off.***  
 
When the word doesn’t mean LAST, or to stop, and the word AKHIR is already used in the Quran, of course there is ambiguity when the word khatma is translated to the LAST prophet instead of the one who carry out the act of khatama, the one who do khatim of other prophets.  
 
Its like I say, Tony is a teacher of other prophets.  
But you will twist it an say:- Tony is the LAST TEACHER among the teachers  
 
I hope you can see the difference  
 
This is made all the less ambiguous given that the Qur'an can often be quite poetic in its prose ("Seal of the Prophets" sounds more poetic than "Last of the Prophets").  
 
The Quran is poetic? How did you come to this conclusion and why would the Quran be poetic? Whatever that means  
 
And no, seal of the prophets is not more POETIC than the last prophet, it is a straightforward claim  
 
And frankly one needs to seriously ask why we need another prophet. All messengers/prophets came with books (the message) and given that the Qur'an is the last and perfected message from God, there is no reason for another messenger to appear. For a prophet that is not a divinely appointed messenger can only be deluded by definition.  
 
When S Abraham cam with the SAME DEEN, why did we need Moses, Joseph, Jesus and Mohammed for, they all came with the same deen? Why the need for more prophets when the even the “last” prophet is asked to follow millate Ibrahim?  
 
Can you explain 3:21  
Sahih International: Those who disbelieve in the signs of Allah and kill the prophets without right and kill those who order justice from among the people - give them tidings of a painful punishment.****  
 
All the prophets were dead at S mohammed’s time, what prophets is this verse talking about and HOW can S Mohammed give those who killed these prophets, tidings of painful punishment?  
 
D you read Br Moazzams post about the prophet will always be among us?

to make it easy for you, the word khamatal nabiyeena doesn't mean the last nabi, simple and easy ( And no, won't buy that God is telling you something in a poetic way so the readers can sit down and guess the meanings). you are INTERPRETING the word to mean last but the grammar and topic of the verses doesn't allow it to mean the last. No matter how much one want the verse to say that our prophet is the last prophet, the words are not saying that.  
 
Why would it say the last prophet if the prophethood/ nabowat is ending? What about the rusools, why are they continuing? Had the rusool and nabi meant the same thing, two words would not be used....
