Bahais can outdo anyone in shaping anything as per their convenience. And in doing this, they do not hesitate to misinterpret divine books nor do they hesitate to change the concept, as long as they can derive their ideas.
One of the biggest victims of this Bahai atrocity is the Quranic verse: “Mohammed (p.b.u.h) is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the seal (last) of the Prophets. And God is Aware of everything.” (Chapter of Ahzab, verse 40)
This ayat categorically states that Prophethood has ended with Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) and consequently Messengership too has come to an end. Thus, destroying the very basis of the Bahai Faith that Bahaullah is a Manifestation of God. In order to find a way out, the Bahais declare that Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) was the last Prophet but not the last Messenger, Bahaullah is thus the Manifestation or Messenger of God.
The entire Bahai edifice easily crumbles as every Messenger is necessarily is Prophet but all Prophets are not Messengers. Having said that, I have brought together various proofs to establish that this is not the only verse based to prove the finality of Prophet Mohammed (pbuh). (Please Read: Proofs from the Holy Quran).
Secondly, traditions unequivocally prove that Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) is not only the last Prophet but is also the last Messenger of God. (Please read: The View from Traditions and Finality of Messengership)
Further, I have also presented that the word Khatam used in the Holy Quran has been used in the context of finality and not beauty as the Bahais try to misinterpret. (Please read: The Dictionary Meaning of Khatam)
Last but not the least, I have also brought across the words of Bahaullah, who himself acknowledges that Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) is the last Prophet and Messenger. (Please read: The Bahai view on finality)
And to close this discussion, I have also presented the Quranic verses which explicitly state that Quran is the final message of God and no new dispensation is to follow. So be it the Bayan or the Aqdas, neither has come from God as claimed by the Bahais.
Based on these proofs, Muslim scholars are unanimous that Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) is the last Prophet and Messenger of God, Quran the final dispensation and Islam the religion upto the Day of Judgment. (Please read: View of Muslims scholars on the Faith)
