Rashad Khalifa as messenger, not prophet

Reader comment on item: Finding Rashad Khalifa's Killer

Submitted by Junaid Durrani (United States), Jun 6, 2009 at 23:32

Dr Pipes writes:

>>Finally, Khalifa declared himself a prophet (nabi), just about the most serious offense in Islam, which holds Muhammad to be the "seal of the prophets."<<

Not true. Dr Khalifa declared himself as messenger not prophet. Indeed, the Quran declares Muhammad as the last prophet, but does not call Muhammad the last messenger.

[Quran 33:40] Muhammad was not the father of any man among you. He was a messenger of GOD and the final prophet. GOD is fully aware of all things.
