Prophethood As A Circle.
« on: November 27, 2017, 05:24:09 PM »
 Peace to one and all,
  The Noble Prophet Muhammad, may Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him, said:--

  "TIME HAS NOW COME FULL CIRCLE AS IT WAS THE MOMENT ALLAH CREATED THE HEAVENS
   AND EARTH." [Bukhari and Others].

 From this it is clear that Prophethood is a Circle, or a ring of connected points, each point representing a Prophet, and that point which gathers and seals both arcs of the Circle represents MUHAMMAD, the Last Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam. From the standpoint of his unique status of being that gathering point, this Noble Messenger of Allah, said:--

    "I AM THE LEADER OF THE CHILDREN OF ADAM, AND THIS IS WITHOUT BOASTING." [Tirmidhi, Muslim, Abu Dawud].

And if we view each point of the circle in itself, we see that each of them can be a connecting point, giving that sense of equality. Here, you may aptly quote Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, where he said:- "IT IS NOT FIT TO ELEVATE ME ABOVE MY BROTHER, YUNUS Ibn MATTA." [Bukhari, Tabarani, Ibn Majah]. And in the Holy Qur'an, we read it (2:285), where it says:--

    "WE DO NOT DISCRIMINATE BETWEEN ANY OF HIS MESSENGERS..."  because discrimination would be a hole in the completeness of the Circle of Prophethood.
