Salaamun alaikum to all,  
 
Here's my question... is Al Fatiha, in fact, a sura?  
 
Looking forward to reponses.

Well, looks like I have no takers so I will present the argument.  
 
WHY FATIHA IS NOT SURA.  
 
15:87 And certainly We have given thee seven oft-repeated and the grand Quran.  
 
Ayat 15:87 speaks of two different distinctly different things—  
 
1. Seven oft repeated.  
 
2. Grand Quran.  
 
The seven oft repeated are the seven things most uttered/thought by humans in regard to Allah/God. Fatiha is a lists these things.  
 
 
17:106 Quran to be recited to the people  
Fatiha is being recited to Allah. Not from Allah to man.  
 
17:9 Surely this Quran guides to that which is most upright  
Fatiha is requesting guidance not giving it. 1:5  
 
11:13 Say: Then bring ten forged chapters like it,  
 
Counting from Sura 11 back you arrive at Sura Baqara as ten suras and not Fatiha.  
 
11-1 Al-Hud (Hud)  
10-2 Al-Yunus (Jonah)  
9-3 Al-Baraat (The Immunity)  
8-4 Al-Anfal (Voluntary Gifts)  
7-5 Al-Araf (The Elevated Places)  
6-6 Al-Anam (The Cattle)  
5-7 Maidah (The Food)  
4-8 An-Nisa (The Women)  
3-9 Al-Imran (The Family of Amran)  
2-10 Al-Baqarah (The Cow)  
1 Al-Fatihah (The Opening)  
 
Clearly, Fatiha is not a Sura, hence, as with Allahu Akbar, the Last Prophet could not have done any ritual prayer.  
Fatiha and Allahu Akbar are mentioned in every raka, but Allah has not revealed Allah Akbar and does reveals that  
Fatiha is not a sura.  
 
Dhulqarnain-

What difference does it makes to you whether Fatiha is a sura or not? and where does it say "last prophet"? Mention where in the Quran that is written?

***What difference does it makes to you whether Fatiha is a sura or not?***  
 
What a silly question.  
 
Anyway, following are some reasons why it makes a difference.  
 
1. The following ayats/Words of Allah would be immediately invalidated if it were a sura:  
 
A) 15:87 And certainly We have given thee seven oft-repeated and the grand Quran.  
 
B) 11:13 Or, say they: He has forged it. Say: Then bring ten forged chapters like it, and call upon whom you can besides Allah, if you are truthful.  
 
C) 17:106 And it is a Quran We have made distinct, so that thou may read/recite it to the people by slow degrees, and We have revealed it in portions.  
 
2. Just the simple fact that it is not a Sura.  
 
3. Why call it what it isn’t? If you can take liberties with Fatiha…then you can you feel free to take liberties with other things regarding Al-Quran/The Words of Allah.  
 
4. Fahtiha cannot be recited to the people, as it is addressed only to one being--Allah. Iyya ka كَ =is 2nd person masculine singular personal pronoun-Allah.  
 
***and where does it say "last prophet"? Mention where in the Quran that is written?***  
 
33:40 Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the Seal of the prophets. And Allah is ever Knower of all things.  
 
KHATAMA: to seal; put a signet upon; stamp; end; complete a thing; last; finish. Dictionary of the Quran, by Abdul Mannan Omar, pg. 148  
 
I prefer to use the term “Last”, because it is more poignant than Seal. Last, indicates,—no more to follow; the end. Allah has sent no prophets after the Last Prophet, hence, he is the Last Prophet.  
 
Now you can see why it makes a difference, yeah? If you don't believe me--ask your leader, Dr. Zaman.

I'm asking you and you can ask your qadiyani leaders to  
 
Explain the use of Khatam, confirm whether the term used in this particular verse is KHATAM or KHATIM !  
 
If it is KHATAM (with a zabar ), then please tell me what is the difference between KHATAM and KHATIM  
OR  
Are these two the same and it makes no difference whether it's KHATAM or KHATIM?  
 
(You should stop posting your qadiyani translations, no one reads them)

Comments by: DHULQARNAIN On 03 August 2011Report Abuse
It won't matter what translation I post. The Arabic term khatama remains and it means end; finish; final; last. Whether there is a zabar or a crowbar it will not alter the meaning of this term. Now, if you have a different take on the matter, well, let's see it.  
 
I am not Qadiyani.

the word وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ has appeared only once in sura 33.  
 
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.Let me quote 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  
 
Now 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.  
 
Even orthodox translations do not differ . see the orthodox translation,  
 
4. we sent not an apostle except (to teach) In the language of His (own) people, In order to make (things) Clear to them. Now Allah leaves straying those whom He pleases and guides whom He pleases: and He is Exalted In power, full of wisdom.( orthodox translation )  
Note :--من یشاء has been translated in orthodox translations as “for whom He pleases “ and proverb He is supposed to be God , this creates a problem ,and people are justified to ask “ why then man is responsible for his deeds .?”The word من is not for God but for the person who is doing a deed by his own choice .  
 
Now coming to our main discussion .  
 
There are many more verses which can be quoted in support of the above mentioned verses but lets now discuss it from another angle .  
The purpose of Quran is to establish a welfare state with a balanced socioeconomic system of justice to provide peace and prosperity to the community .  
 
To fulfill that aim , presence of a living leader is necessary . the messengers of the past can not come back and establish a welfare state , these personalities can be a role model to follow but can not guide us like a living person .  
For God to make someone the first or the last does not give that man any superiority on others . If becoming the last is superiority then automatically the previous ones were inferior ,which is against Quran .  
 
It can only lead to personality cult .  
 
Now coming to verse 40 of 33  
 
مَا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِنْ رِجَالِكُمْ وَلَكِنْ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمًا  
 
Lets see the orthodox translation first for comparison ,  
40. Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (He is) the Messenger of Allah, and the seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things. ( Mohsin khan )  
 
40. Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (He is) the Messenger of Allah, and the seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things .( yusuf Ali )  
 
even these orthodox translators have translated خاتم النبیین as seal of prophets.  
 
Now keeping in mind the verse 21 of sura 3 ( already discussed above ) , which clearly indicates that so many prophets انبیاء were present in the times of prophet Mohammad . This verse no 40 of sura 33 is declaring that Mohammad was the seal of the prophets , which simply means He was the appointing authority of other prophets .

Thank you for your detailed explanation. Your view that were prophets living at the same time as the prophet given Al-Quran is really interesting. I’m not fully used to your writing style so would you please answer the following for me.  
 
PART A  
 
1. Is it your position that khatama, as it appears in ayat 33:40, does not mean—end, final, last, finish, but means—what exactly?  
 
2. Is it your position that there would be more prophets after the prophet who was given Al-Quran?  
or  
 
3. Is it your position that there would be no more prophets after the prophet who was given Al-Quran?  
 
4. Is it your position that there would be more messengers after the messenger given Al-Quran?  
 
or  
 
5. Is it your position that there would be no more messengers after the messenger given Al-Quran?  
 
 
PART B  
 
***The purpose of Quran is to establish a welfare state with a balanced socioeconomic system of justice to provide peace and prosperity to the community.***  
 
I see this stated repeatedly here at Aastana, but I have never seen this stated in Al-Quran. Could you point me to the ayat which makes this claim. I’ve seen the following written as the purpose of Al-Quran:  
 
17:106 And it is a Quran We have made distinct, so that thou mayest read/recite it to the people by slow degrees, and We have revealed it in portions.  
 
The purpose (the word “li”=for the purpose of), according to the above ayat, is to recite Quran to the people so each soul may be guided (2:185; 17:9; 5:15-16)  
 
***To fulfill that aim , presence of a living leader is necessary . the messengers of the past can not come back and establish a welfare state , these personalities can be a role model to follow but can not guide us like a living person .***  
 
1. The leader you refer to, do you mean a Caliph? Couldn’t this leader, as you stated earlier (“It can only lead to personality cult”.), lead to a personality cult?  
 
2. Do you not consider Al-Quran to be, in fact, the Messenger since the death of the prophet to whom Al-Quran was given?  
 
***For God to make someone the first or the last does not give that man any superiority on others. If becoming the last is superiority then automatically the previous ones were inferior ,which is against Quran***  
 
I never got the impression from Al-Quran that any prophet or messenger prophet ever felt superior or inferior to any other prophet or messenger prophet. Allah, in ayat 2:285, says not to make distinctions between His messengers.  
 
2:285…We make no difference between any of His messengers…

Hi Dhul, I have internet for a short time and very stressed, so I’ll try to be “comprehensive” ans answer the questions  
 
PART A  
 
1. Is it your position that khatama, as it appears in ayat 33:40, does not mean—end, final, last, finish, but means—what exactly?  
 
Khatim does not mean last or to stop, word for that is “akhir”. The word khatim is with the paradigm of fail,the doer. Other similar words like that is Katib(writer), Qatil (murderer)Khaliq (creator) etc. It means that a Khatim is an operator, a performer; it is a description of a job/work he performed.  
 
So the verse no 40 of sura 33 is declaring that Mohammad was the seal of the prophets, which simply means He was the appointing authority of other prophets. He approved other prophets, nabis- Nabi means head of department/state. (Also see the word youme al akhira, which is not youme al khatim-)
 
 
2. Is it your position that there would be more prophets after the prophet who was given Al-Quran?  
 
*Yes, the Quran said so:- وسِيقَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِلَى جَهَنَّمَ زُمَرًا حَتَّى إِذَا جَاءُوهَا فُتِحَتْ أَبْوَابُهَا  
 
 
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.
 
2. Is it your position that there would be no more prophets after the prophet who was given Al-Quran?  
 
Al Quran has always been one and same throughout ages. Allan NEVER changes his orders, so there is no need to give different books with different content. Any messenger will have the same AL KITAB. Even today WE have the same AL KITAB; we are talking about the SAME ALKITAB given to everyone throughout the ages.  
 
3. Is it your position that there would be more messengers after the messenger given Al-Quran?  
 
Replied  
or  
 
5. Is it your position that there would be no more messengers after the messenger given Al-Quran?  
 
Replied  
 
Conclusion, there is only ONE MESSAGE, ONE DEEN, ONE FORMULA, but in every nation there is new messengers who will observe/discover Al Kitab and recite it to his nation.

PART B  
 
I see this stated repeatedly here at Aastana, but I have never seen this stated in Al-Quran. Could you point me to the ayat which makes this claim?  
 
It is stated throughout the Quran, to establish nizam raboiyat. Here are some examples  
 
“Qul li’ibaadi allazina aamanu, yuqimus Salaata wa yunfiqu mimma razaqnahum sirran wa ‘alaaniyatan min qabli an ya’ti youma la bayi’un fihi wa la khilalan”.  
 
“Tell those of my subjects who believe, to establish Salaat and, secretly or openly, spend in the way of Allah from the sustenance we have granted them, before that day comes when there will be no bargaining and no friendship”. (Orthodox translation)  
 
It is apparent that in this verse too, our Prophet is ordered, as Prophet Abraham was ordered, to insist upon Mominoon to unite under a discipline according to divine commandments and keep open the doors of sustenance for everyone from what God has bestowed them with.  
 
“Qalu ya Shoaibu, a’Salaatuka ta’muruka an natruk ma ya’bud abaauna aou an naf’al fi amwalina ma nashau”.  
 
“O Shoaib, what is this Salaat of yours that orders us to give up those gods whom our elders worshipped; and that we may not spend our wealth as we wish”. (Chapter “Hood”, verse No.87). (Orthodox translation)  
 
See that there are two demands in this verse:  
 
1. To stop worship  
2. The economic aspect to come under Salaat  
 
What does economy has to do with Salaat, why are they objecting for not being allowed to spend their wealth as they wish? It’s obvious the prophet ordered some economy guidelines. It simply means that, Salaat is that system which is formulated under divine orders and values, and which dictates that human beings will not develop an economy based on man-made principles. Its principles will have to be determined under divine values.  
 
Verse No.132 of Chapter “Taaha”  
 
“Wa’mur ahlaka bis Salaat wa astabir alayiha, la nas’aluka rizqan; nahnu narzuquka; wa al-aaqibatu lit taqwa”.  
“Order your people for Salaat and be steadfast on it. We do not ask you for sustenance, rather we bestow sustenance upon you; and the happy end is for Taqwa”.  
 
We have to see from Verse No.124 to see the topic. From 124 to 126, it is emphasized that whoever would sidetrack from my tenets (Zikr) his economy would shrink and on the Final Day he will be presented as a blind one. On that occasion he would say that he used to be very intelligent; why was he taken as blind; the Almighty would reply saying that he was presented with my verses but he forgot them; so, in return, he was also forgotten that day; and that in this way we punish the trespassers and those who do not become people of faith with God’s verses.  
 
In Verse No.277 of Chapter “al-Baqarah”, the term “aqamatus Salaat wa eetaa’az Zakaat” has appeared with reference to “ribaa” :-  
 
“Yamhaqul-laahur ribaa wa yarbis sadaqaat. Wallahu la yuhibbu kullu kuffarin atheem”. Innal lazina aamanu wa ‘amilus saalihaati wa aqamus Salaata wa aatuz zakaata lahum ajruhum ‘inda rabbihim wa la khoufun alayihim wa la hum yahzunoon”.  
 
“Allâh destroys Ribâ (usury) and enhances Sadaqât and Allâh likes not the disbelievers, sinners. Truly those who believe, and who performed progressive deeds and established Salaat and provided Zakât, they will have their reward with their Lord. They shall not fear, nor shall they grieve.”  
 
According to its setting, Ribaa is an economic exploitation. It actually means any dealing that may go against the interest of state or inflict hardship upon one party, while its increasing the economy of the malicious party. Such a deal is ‘ribaa’. But dealings that may neither be against the state laws, nor one of the parties may suffer, will fall under the parameters of sadaqaat. In the above perspective, it was ordained that the believers are only those who act reformative and enforce divine laws. They work for the evolution of society. The reward for such people is reserved with their ‘Rabb’ and they have neither fear nor grief.  
 
verses 30-32 of Chapter “Al Roam”:-“Fa aqim wajhaka liddina hanifan. Fitrat-Allah allati fataran-naasa alayiha. La tabdila li khalqi-llah. Zalika ad-deen al-qayyam. Wa laakinna aktharan-naasi la ya’lamoon. Munibeena alayihi wat-taqwa wa aqimus-Salaata wa la takunu min al-Mushrikeena, min al-lazina farraqudeenahum wa kanu shiya’an. Kullu hizbun bi ma ladayihim farihun”.  
 
“So, fix all your attention upon the ideology exclusively and upon the divine laws of nature under which man was created. Divine Laws of nature are irreversible. This is the firm/authentic ideology, yet the majority is not aware of it. Concentrate fully upon it with eagerness and be cautious and vigilant, establish Salaat and do not be like Mushrikeen who split their ideology into pieces and became sectarians, every sect feeling happy over their own separate ways”. (Orthodox translation)  
 
This verse is clear, simple and direct explanation is that God created man under a law which is the divine ideology. God bestowed man with all the competences And God never change his laws of nature. They remain the same, but the majority of people are unaware of them. If the divine laws of nature are eagerly followed and acted upon, humanity will reach the eventual accurate ideology (Deen-eQayyam).  
 
Moreover, God’s declaration of establishing Salaat and not to become mushrikeens, clearly tells us that Salaat precisely means those divine commandments in which no infiltration is allowed. When man adulterates them with human fabrications, he is divided into sects, and there is no end to this division.  
 
However, Quran explained very well what Salaat is and what Deen is. It is clearly not about blind belief or sheepistic attitude to his idols or own ego. We have to keep in mind that humanity is one, so they have to be treated equally. That’s how one advances further.  
 
“Innamaa waliyyukum Allahu wa rasuluhu wa al-lazina aamanu, al-lazina yuqimunas salaata wa yu’tuna az-zakaata wa hum raakioon”  
 
“Your patrons are only Allah, his messenger and those believers who establish Salaat and discipline of Zakaat, and remain submitted to Him”. (Chapter “Al-Maaidah”, Verse No.55). (Orthodox translation)  
 
This verse specifies three characteristics of Momins. They are those who:  
 
1) Establish Salaat  
 
2) Carry out the duty of providing sustenance  
 
3) And remain bowed to Him.

1. The leader you refer to, do you mean a Caliph? Couldn’t this leader, as you stated earlier (“It can only lead to personality cult”.), lead to a personality cult?  
 
This leader is the one Allah called Messenger,  
 
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 .  
 
A messenger according to this verse should be from us , should teach us by himself and warn us of the consequences .)  
 
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 (ربکمیات آ) nor did he warn us, as they have left us centuries ago. The Quran is clear here, that the messenger will come among us, and he will directly talk to us. If that was not the case, it would lead to personality cult, it means that people would start worship messengers who they never have seen, and imagine or guess what or how they were like.  
 
We can see examples, Christians think Jesus is Gods son, Jews think Abraham had twelve sons and they are special chosen ones, and Muslims have their ahadith and follow what they THINK Mohammed did….  
 
The book, the message is alive, so is its messengers, the messengers will be alive and among us.  
 
 
 
2. Do you not consider Al-Quran to be, in fact, the Messenger since the death of the prophet to whom Al-Quran was given?  
 
The Quran is the Message given to EVERYONE, to EVERY messenger. To make it easy, we can say the Quran is the messenger to those who observe it, comprehend it, and gives it to the nation and work to establish socio economy system. The messenger is in fact elaborated above. The Quran is not coming among us and talking, it is revealed to the one who looks for it and are able to comprehend it. Otherwise it is not revealing itself, and the one who is a messenger won't be fit for the task. the one who works hard to get it and understand it will finally be competent enough to lead a nation according to its commands.  
 
I said :- For God to make someone the first or the last does not give that man any superiority on others. If becoming the last is superiority then automatically the previous ones were inferior ,which is against Quran  
 
It actually means that there is nothing called first or last, because the message is one, and the messengers had the same message. If someone is ranked in a no system, prophets would be divided in ranks and positions. so the Quran cannot say that this prophet is the first or last, because there is only ONE message, when reached to the messengers, becomes a part of them and they have only ONE and SAME mission. So ten thousand messengers with *ONE message, means NO FIRST OR LAST, IT MEANS SAME:-
