In Your Name, Allahumma
I previously refuted the demonstrably illogical and paradoxical doctrine held by many Muslims, particularly the Barelawis, that the Prophet Muhammad (sall Allahu alaihi wasallam) is simultaneously the first and last of the prophets in the chronological sense. Recently, however, my attention was drawn to an Ayah of the Quran which explicitly states that the Prophet Muhammad (sall Allahu alaihi wasallam) is not the first Apostle of God, ending the debate decisively:
قُلۡ مَا کُنۡتُ بِدۡعًا مِّنَ الرُّسُلِ
Say: "I am not something original among the messengers"
(Surah 46:9 - Sahih International translation)
