The Finality of Prophecy

In Arabia a man named Muhammad, who was born c.
    570 CE, is said to have received a series of communications from
    God  between 610 and 632 CE.
    These communications subsequently were recorded in writing,
    collected, and redacted in the text known as the Quran. On one
    occasion, the Quran refers to Muhammad as “the seal of
    Prophets,” a phrase that is understood by all Muslims as
    signifying that prophecy came to an end upon Muhammad’s death
