Allah knows best

Reader comment on item: Bibliography – My Writings on Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: Way overdue

Submitted by Razia (United Kingdom), Mar 10, 2008 at 07:04

This is a very, very interesting subject. Today is the first time I have come across this prophecy. I would like to add the following comments:

Prophet Muhammad (saw - peace be upon him) was the last prophet as mentioned in the Quran. We believe that no new prophet will come after him. The word in the Quran is actually "Nabi", which is different to an "ordinary" person experiencing some sort of prophecy, ie foreseeing the future.

There are many people alive today who had a dream come true. This does not mean they are prophets (or "Nabi") in the Quranic sense.

Perhaps a woman, with a temperament like Aisha, may be sent by Allah to guide people.

Only Allah knows best.

Submitting....
