Hakeem Tirmidhi Refuting the Idea of "Chronological" Finality of Prophethood

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

writes in his book Kitab Khatm ul Awliya regarding the correct interpretation of Khatam an Nabuwwah (Finality of Prophethood):

فإن الذي عَمِيَ عن خبرِ هذا يظنّ أن خاتم النبيين تأويله أنه آخرهم مبعثا. فأي منقبة في هذا؟ وأي علم في هذا؟ هذا تأويل البُلْهِ الجَهَلة

Translation: “What is the virtue in the idea that the meaning of Khaatam an Nabiyyeen (Seal of the Prophets) is that he is the last to be sent chronologically? This is the interpretation of the foolish and the ignorant!”
