Khatam an-Nabiyyin (Arabic خاتم النبيين‎) or Khātim an-Nabīyīn, is a title used in the Qur'an to designate the prophet Muhammad and it is also translated as The Best and The Most Perfect of all Prophets.

Quran[edit]

مَّا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَآ أَحَدٍ مِّن رِّجَالِكُمْ وَلَـٰكِن رَّسُولَ ٱللَّـهِ وَخَاتَمَ ٱلنَّبِيِّـۧنَ وَكَانَ ٱللَّـهُ بِكُلِّ شَىْءٍ عَلِيمًا

  • Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things."

Hadith[edit]

  • My similitude in comparison with the prophets before me is that of a man who has built a house nicely and beautifully, except for a place of one brick in a corner. The people go about it and wonder at its beauty, but say: 'Would that this brick be put in its place!' So I am that brick, and I am the seal of the prophets"
  • On the day of judgment, when people will ask the Prophet to intercede, they will say: "O Muhammad, you are the Messenger of Allah and the Last Prophet."
