URDU-AN INTELLECTUAL STUDY OF BELIEF IN THE END OF PROPHETHOOD AND THE CONTEMPORARY CHALLENGES
عقیدہ ختم نبوت اور عصر حاضر کے چیلنجز کا فکری مطالعہ
Allah started the chain of Prophethood from Hazrat Adam Alaih-i-Salam and it ended with the Holy Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ). Muhammad (ﷺ) is the last Prophet. In Islamic terminology having this faith is called Aqeedah Khatm-e-Nubuwwat.The whole Muslim Ummah coherence on the belief of Khatm-e-Nubuwwat. All the expounders and exegetics have concord on the meanings of Khatm-e-Nubuwwat. i.e. there is neither any type of Prophet nor any sort of messenger after Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ). It is also concordat that there is no other interpretation or appropriation in the meanings of the word Khatm-e-Nubuwwat. Similarly, the ummah of the Prophet (ﷺ) is the last ummah. Belief in the end of prophethood is the basic belief of Muslims. False prophets have been attacking this belief since the demise of the Holy Prophet (ﷺ). Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani claimed prophethood in the subcontinent but the scholars declared it to be constitutionally false by practical and academic arguments. They are constantly working to promote and harm Muslims. Now, these Qadiani and anti-Islamic forces have re-established themselves and are targeting the younger generation. It is very important to understand these contemporary challenges, to make the new generation aware of this tribulation, and connect them with the Qur'an, Sunnah, and Seerat-e- Mubarkah.
