Reader comment on item: Finding Rashad Khalifa's Killer

Submitted by engrju (Bangladesh), Mar 8, 2010 at 23:27

Here you wrote that, " 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." about the most serious offense in Islam, which holds Muhammad to be the "seal of the prophets." Suprisingly this statement for Rashad Khalifa is not true at all. He never claimed himself as a prophet(nabi) but a messenger (rasul). There is a distinct difference between prophet (nabi) and messenger. Every prophet is a rasul but every rasul is not a prophet.
