If Prophethood Has Ceased, Muslims Cannot Be Regarded Best of Peoples

Prophethood means Divine communion. One who foretells the unseen is a Prophet. If you repudiate future Prophethood, this ummat (people) shall then cease to be the best of all peoples, but shall be like beasts and the teachings of Surah Fatiha which embodies the verse: Guide us along the straight path, the path of those on whom Thou has bestowed Thy favors, will be deemed to be meaningless. For if the gifts and bounties of God are not to be bestowed anymore, then what is the purpose of this prayer? It will also follow then that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) lacks all purifying spiritual influence. God save us from such a belief! (Al-Badr, April 17, 1903)

A servant of God named Jesus followed the law of Moses for 30 years and became a favourite of God, attaining the grade of Prophet. As against this we are told that if a person were to follow in the footsteps of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) for 50 years he would not attain that grade. In other words, obedience to the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) does not confer any excellence. They do not seem to consider that in that event it is clear that teaching the prayer: Guide us along the path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy favours, would be an illusion.
