The Chain of Prophethood has been terminated. After Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) there cannot be any “Zilli” or “Buroozi” prophet.
The knowledge that Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) is the Last and Final Prophet and after Him no prophet will come is one of the most basic articles of the Islamic Faith. It has been established both by the Verses of the Holy Quran and the Frequently occurring (Mutawatir) Traditions (Ahadith) and also by the Consensus of the Ummah. Rejecting it or trying to explain it in some other manner which leads to a different explanation other than the one given by the Elders of the Ummah or trying to bypass it in using figurative interpretations (Tawil) is explicit apostasy (Sareeh Kufr). The Lord Almighty has seated the Master of both the worlds Muhammad Mustafa (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) on the glorious seat of the Final Prophet.
The collection of Tirmidhi has a tradition “The Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) has said, ’Verily, Prophethood has been terminated. After me there will neither be no nabi nor any rasool.’” Jame' Tirmidhi Vol II Pg no.3
The Negation (la) brought in this Hadith before the word “Nabi” and the word “rasoola” is a total negation. According to Arabic Grammar, when a negation is used before a common noun, it means” wholly” or “entirely” or "of any kind". This establishes that after Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) there cannot be any zilli, buroozi or prophet-in-part.
Even after this explicit tradition, if any Muslim believes that after the Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) any kind of “Zilli” or “Buroozi” prophet can come, then that Muslim is out of the fold of Islam and is an apostate (Kafir). A tradition is Sunan Ibn e Majah, Chapter of Trials says that “I am the Last Prophet and you are the last Ummah.” Prophets were sent to guide and lead mankind. Whenever any Prophet passed away another was sent. But, the Seal of the Prophets, Muhammad Mustafa (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was sent to guide and lead the whole of mankind. Sahih Muslim, Kitabul Masajid wal Mawazi' pg no.199 has a Tradition, " I have been sent towards the entire creation and prophethood has been ended with Me." Prophet Muhammad’s (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) Prophethood is for all the creatures and for all mankind till the Day of Judgments. Till the end of this world, Prophet Muhammad’s (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) Divine Code (Shariat) will be practiced. There is no need for any other Prophet or any other Divine Code.
The Lord has completed the Shariat e Muhammadi (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ), "This day, I have perfected your religion for you and completed My favor unto you, and have chosen for you as religion AL-ISLAM." Surah Maidah Verse-03
