Allâhu ta'âlâ communicated His commandments and rules to mankind by means of His Prophets ''alaihi 's-salâm'. Prophets are humans too. But they are the great men specially created by Allâhu ta'âlâ to be learned, pure and perfect. Due to the spiritual closeness between them and Allâhu ta'âlâ, their minds and hearts have been endowed with extensive knowledge and inspiration quite different from ours. According to Islamic scholars, up to our Prophet 'sall-Allâhu 'alaihi wa sallam' one hundred and twenty-four thousand prophets appeared. Our Prophet 'alaihissalâm' is the last and the greatest of all the prophets. No prophet will come after our Prophet 'alaihissalâm'. Our Prophet is the most beloved man of Allâhu ta'âlâ's creation. He once said to our Prophet 'alaihissalâm': "If you had not existed, I would not have created this universe (all of existence)." Our Prophet 'alaihissalâm' was born in Mekka-i Mukarrama. He was not educated in a university; he had not received any form of formal education. He was illiterate.

Nonetheless, he is the most intelligent, the most learned, and the most benevolent of human beings. This is due to the fact that Jenâb-i Haqq created him as the final light of the world; even centuries later another prophet will not appear. This light will maintain its glory until the Day of Resurrection. It is one of the essentials of our belief to believe in our Prophet and all the other prophets 'alaihimussalam'. The one who does not believe in our Prophet 'alaihissalam' is not regarded as a Muslim. Non-Muslims will be put in Hell for eternity. This fact has been communicated by Jenâb-i Haqq in His Qur'ân al-kerîm.
