The Arrival of the Final Messenger


How was the coming of the last messenger? Who is the last messenger of allah in islam?

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) is the final link in the chain of Prophet hood. He is the final Prophet and he has been sent uniquely to all of humanity from the beginning of his Prophethood until the Final Hour and no Prophet will come after him. Accordingly, his coming to the world is therefore a precursor of the Last Day, as it signals the last phase of mankind.

Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah (may Allah be well pleased with him) reports:

“When the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) delivered a sermon, his eyes became red, his voice rose, and his fervour intensified such that he was like a military commander warning against the enemy and saying, ‘The enemy has planned a morning assault on you and an evening assault on you also.’ He would join his forefinger and middle finger and say, ‘The Last Hour and I have been sent as close to one another in time as these two.'” (Muslim, Jumu’ah, 43. Also see, Ibn Maja, introduction, 7)
