As-Salam Alaykum dear all.

Yesterday during a monthly discussion at our Muslim community center there were a couple of folks who were misinterpreting Verse 23:51 until the rest of us clarified the misconception.  That made me realize to clarify it here as well so others don't misunderstand similarly.

"Messengers, eat good things and do good deeds: I am well aware of what you do."  (23:51).

"This community of yours is one– and I am your Rab: be mindful of Me – but they have split their community into sects, each rejoicing in their own."  (23:52-53).

Please note folks ::  Verse 23:51 does NOT refer to any future messengers after Muhammed (pbuh).  If you have carefully read Surah Al-Muminum (The Believers), you will know that Verses preceding V.23:51 have narrated the goals of other Prophets in the past. The stories of the former Prophets and their communities have been cited as historical evidences of the truth of the same Message they got, confirmed in Verses 23:52-53.

The Message of Tawheed and the Hereafter that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was conveying was the same as was brought by the former Prophets narrated in the Noble Quran.

Thus, in V.23:51 Allah Almighty addresses all His messengers together which is symbolic of the fact that all messengers to different communities sent by the One Divine Power came with the SAME MESSAGE - The Message of Tawheed or Monotheism (which also contained the code of good conduct essential for every Monotheist).

I reiterate, Verse 23:51 does not mean that all messengers were present at the same place and at the same time, nor does it refer to any future messengers.  Prophet Muhammed is the seal of all prophets/messengers .. the final one .. after whom there will be no more. All Prophets brought the SAME religion from Allah, The One and Only, and all messengers belonged to the same community (that is community of Monotheistic believers).  All other religions were invented by the people and none of them is from Allah.

Excellent.  Very helpful.  I was actually in the process of studying this Verse and researching on opinions of its interpretation.  Of course we all know it does not refer to future prophets.  I don't know how those folks could think that. 

Thanks a million Sister Ruhi.
