Hadith Explanation

Final Prophet

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “My likeness among the prophets is as a man who, having built a house and put the finishing touches on it and made it seemly, yet left one place without a brick. When anyone entered it and saw this, he would exclaim, ‘How excellent it is, but for the place of this brick.’ Now, I am the place of that brick: through me the line of the prophets (Allah bless them and give them peace) has been brought to completion.” [Bukhari]

Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was the last in a long succession of prophets, that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) sent to mankind over the millennia. Anyone claiming to be a prophet or messenger after him is a fraud, misled and misleading. Since the last prophet has come, we can deduce that we are in the final stages of life on earth.

Since no prophets are to come after Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has taken it upon himself to guard the final revelation from being tampered with. It will remain in its original form till the Blowing of the Trumpet.
