It Is Believed By Moslems (Followers Of Islam)
That Muhammad Was The Last Prophet
Moslems refer to a verse
in the Koran, which contains a word, which has two different
pronunciations, each with a different meaning. It can be
the end) or Khatam
meaning of this word has been the subject of dispute for centuries.
Some say it is Khatem, so Prophet Muhammad was the last Prophet.
Some say Khatam, so he was the seal of the Prophets but they do not
give an explanation as to why he was the seal.
truth the word can be pronounced in both ways, and both meanings are
Muhammad brought the highest spiritual realizations for humanity, to
be surrendered and submissive to the Lord. So there will not
be any higher realization brought to humanity. Therefore, from
this point of view, he is the last Prophet, the “Khatem” of the
Also as it
has been shown in The Greatest Sign, the sign of Islam (
is at the very top:
is the seal in The Plan of the Lord and Prophet Muhammad is the seal
of the Prophets (“Khatam” of the Prophets).
However, with Islam, The
Plan of God was not yet finished. Still there were three more
truths, which should have come before The Plan was complete.
The first four truths (Far East Philosophies or Mystical Paths,
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) plus the next three (Baha’i,
Paravipras, and Pure Consciousness), make up the seven truths which
are symbolized as the seven churches and seven seals in The
Revelation, the last book of the Bible and are presented
The Greatest Sign.
Also it was
foretold in the Koran that a further truth would come:
…Allah will bring a
people whom He loveth and who love him…(Surah The Table Spread, 54)
in Islam God is One who does whatever He pleases. So He can
also send another Prophet if He wills (pleases) to do so.
However, the spiritual understanding was finished with Prophet
Muhammad, and from this point of view, he is the last Prophet.
complete and expand the human mind, other steps were necessary.
The next Prophet, who brought universalism (
was Bab (or the Baha'i Faith). Without the universal point of
view, all of the four previous truths will be narrow, and narrowness
indeed is the root cause of all suffering and is not according to
the Will of God. Therefore, expansion of the mind
(universalism) was necessary.
The name of
this new truth is historically known as the Baha'i Faith (
Although no new spiritual realization was brought to humanity by
this religion, with realizing that universalism will result in
expansion of the mind and destruction of all narrowness of the mind,
the importance of this truth can be felt, and it also is a part of
the Eternal Path.
Until a universal point
of view is created and it is understood that God is everything,
there is a possibility that the mind will become narrow in its scope
and this will create suffering.
God can give prophethood
to anyone He wishes in any time of history before and after Prophet
Muhammad. It is completely up to Him. Even thinking that
any Prophet is the last one is a sin, because we are saying what God
should do or should not do. The Lord God has a great Plan to
fulfill and He will not stop, until it is done.
The problem is that the
human wants to narrow God’s works into one aspect or dimension.
But God’s words and actions are multidimensional. That is
where the misunderstanding starts. You cannot narrow the
expanded work of the Lord to the small understanding of man.
To know Him and His Words require bringing yourself to His expanded
of man to narrow the works of the Lord is another reason for human
Even Prophet Muhammad
said, “We send Prophets anywhere we want to.” In the
Koran he said, “We can raise Prophets in every village if we
want to,” and “Allah chooses of His Messengers whom He will…”
So even saying or thinking that one Prophet is the last one and God
is not going to return to earth is really against the teachings of
Another point is that
Prophet Muhammad said, “Allah chooses His Messengers from among the
angels and men.” Those Prophets who come from the angels are
Avatars (god-men), and those who come from humans are Satgurus
Furthermore, the true
teachings usually are lost after some time and new Messengers are
necessary to come and bring the lost truth back again.
Actually, according to
The Greatest Sign, there are, between Muhammad and our period,
two other beings who came to earth and brought great Light. Of
course, there was a long stretch between 600 AD, when Muhammad came
and 1800 AD, which was around 1,200 years when not many great
That was the
real period of ignorance. That was the real Kali Yuga years on
earth, because ignorance came to its fullest. You could see in
Europe, the religions persecuting people. The whole truth
actually was lost for 1,200 years. Now we are coming out of
So, God can do whatever
He wants to. If He wants to raise another Prophet in every
village, He will. Actually, that is what we should eventually
have; we should have a Paravipra in every village, in every
community, in every state, in every part of the world. Then we
have everyone who can channel God through themselves.
What is a
Prophet? A Prophet is a person who channels God very well
through him or her self. Then in a situation that he does not
even know, he goes to Spirit and prays and says, “Oh God, please,
what is in this situation? What can I do?” and Spirit says,
“God wants it this way.”
it is the truth everyone also says, “Yes, God wants it this way.”
Then more and more people come to the path of Spirit, to go to the
Spirit and find out what is the right thing to do.
Legitimate Prophets, God
chooses and puts through fire first. He makes them good
instruments. He in tunes them with Himself first. Just
like any instrument, either it is tuned or it is not tuned.
The one that is not tuned may make some music too, but it does not
sound as good as the instrument that is completely tuned to the
So He in
tunes them first with His Will, then He says what he wants – what
kind of music He is going to make in the future. And we are
seeing that music is coming true. These prophecies are being
fulfilled and we are going toward that Golden Age.
interesting point about the Baha'i Faith is the way Moslems treated
its followers. Many of them were slain. As it was
explained in the commentary on the Koran, Prophet Muhammad
warned Moslems in Surah The Table Spread (Al-Maidah), 54, that if
they forget his teachings: “…in his stead, God will bring a people
whom He loves and they would love Him,…” This indirectly means
that another Prophet will come. Still the very word Moslem
means to be surrendered to the Will of God, so if a new movement
with a more progressive ideology was revealed to humanity, a Moslem
(surrendered one) should accept it, or at least not oppose it.
