Burls

Pro

Appearances to the contrary are superficial.
Yassine

Con

I thank Pro for instigating the debate & I accept his challenge.


Topic:


- Wether or not, according to Islam, Prophet Muhammad is the Last Prophet of Islam ?



BOP:


- The burden of proof is on Pro, for he is making the claim.




Best of luck.
Debate Round No. 1
Burls

Pro

An account contemporary to Muhammad:

"...thus We have made for every prophet an enemy..." From the 'Sahih International'

Evidently Allah did not restrict prophecy to Muhammad.
Yassine

Con

I thank Pro for submitting his opening argument.



Case:


* “Muhammad is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets” (33:40) [1]

- This is a verse from the Qur’an, the revelation from which Islam originates. Thus, according to the Qur’an, Muhammad (pbuh) is unequivocally the Last Prophet, & there is absolutely no ambiguity about this.



Rebuttals:


"...thus We have made for every prophet an enemy..." From the 'Sahih International'

Evidently Allah did not restrict prophecy to Muhammad.


- Since Pro failed to mention the reference to the text, it’s verse (6:112) [2].

- Pro states that Allah did not restrict prophecy to only Muhammad (pbuh), meaning there are other prophets. Well, the resolution is about wether Muhammad (pbuh) is the Last Prophet of Islam, not wether Muhammad (pbuh) is a prophet of Islam. In fact, the formulation of the resolution: “Muhammad Is Not The Last Prophet Of Islam” assumes that Muhammad (pbuh) is a prophet of Islam. It’s like saying “Obama is not the latest president of the US”, implying that Obama is indeed a president of the US.



Conclusion:


- Finally, it has been established beyond doubt that Muhammad (pbuh), according to the Qur’an, thus according to Islam, is the Last of Prophet of Islam. Meanwhile, Pro failed to argue for the resolution, thereby failing his BOP.


=> Vote Con.

Debate Round No. 2
Burls

Pro

The argument that Allah cannot or will not appoint another Messenger is presumptuous.
Yassine

Con

Rebuttals:


The argument that Allah cannot or will not appoint another Messenger is presumptuous.

- This is clearly not an argument from Pro, it’s a mere bare assertion, which also happens to be false. The Qur’an is the word of Allah, thus when Allah says: “[Muhammad is] the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets”, it means that Allah decided & ordained that Muhammad (pbuh) shall, indeed, be appointed the last of the prophets!



Conclusion:


- Thus far, no new arguments have been provided.


=> Vote Con.

Ayah 33:40 informs me that Muhammad is the latest prophet at that time.
To assume that Allah may not/will not appoint another subsequently can be considered a mistake. I agree with the prevailing nature that great accompanying signs would be expected in the event of another Islamic prophet.

you should post who you think it is... because if you cant show it is someone else without doubt, and that means islam recognises the alternative as a prophet, then you lose.

Reasons for voting decision: Spectacular failure to uphold BoP... I am not sure if I could even vote for Pro is Con forfeited all his rounds, the 'arguments' were that bad. They were so bad that I don't even thin Yassine was sure what Pro's argument was supposed to be, there was no logical progression. Thus I vote Con.
