Reader comment on item: Finding Rashad Khalifa's Killer
in response to reader comment: Rashad Khalifa as messenger, not prophet

Submitted by Taj (United States), Jun 17, 2009 at 16:15

It doesn't really matter what exactly Khalifa claimed since claiming to be a messenger is not much different logically than claiming to be a prophet. In Islam a "messenger" (among people) is a prophet tasked with delivering a law or a "book"...There isn't a single person mentioned as a messenger who wasn't also a prophet...

More of an affront was how Khalifa could reconcile being a messenger of God while being a rapist...lol
