According to the Qur'an who is "khaatamun Nabiyyeen" (the last of the Prophets)?
Prophet Muhammad is the Last Messenger and Last Prophet
I am like the last brick (of an excellent structure that has one brick missing). I am the last of the Prophets. (Muslim, Fazail 22)
Messenger, envoy, and prophet mean one who informs, one who conveys messages. Messenger or prophet is used as a term to define those assigned to convey Allahs Messages, His commands and prohibitions, and His recommendations and warnings. In the Turkish language, the word prophet is used for both prophet and messenger. In the Quran the envoys defined as mursal and nadhir (warner), bashir (bearer of good tidings) and hadi (guide to the truth), are those blessed with the Divine revelations, and those to whom the scriptures, commands and Divine wisdom were sent. (see; Al-Hadid 25-26; Al-Hajj 52; Al-Imran 79, 81; An-Nisa 63-165; Al-Ahzab 45)

The door of the Qur'an is closed to all those who do not consider it necessary for man to receive guidance from God. It is also closed to those who, even if they believe in the need for such guidance, do not consider it necessary to seek it through the channel of revelation and prophethood, but would rather weave their own set of ideas and concepts and regard them as equivalent to Divine Guidance.
This door is also closed to those who believe in Divine books as such, but confin ...more
