مَا کَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ اَبَاۤ اَحَدٍ مِّنۡ رِّجَالِکُمۡ وَ لٰکِنۡ رَّسُوۡلَ اللّٰہِ وَ خَاتَمَ النَّبِیّٖنَ ؕ وَ کَانَ اللّٰہُ بِکُلِّ شَیۡءٍ عَلِیۡمًا
"Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets; and Allah has full knowledge of all things." (Holy Quran, 33:41).

All members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community firmly believe that the Holy Prophet (sa) is the Khatamun Nabiyyin. Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi (as), affirms his belief in Khatme Nubuwwat when he writes: The sum total and the essence of our belief is:

لَآ اِلٰہَ اِلَّا اللّٰہُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوْلُ اللّٰہِ
[There is none worthy of worship except Allah, and Muhammad(sa) is the Messenger of Allah].

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) states in his writings:

“Our firm belief, which we uphold in this life and with which, by God’s grace, we shall leave this worldly abode, is that our Lord and Master, Muhammad, the Chosen One, is Khatamun-Nabiyyin [Seal of the Prophets] and Khairul-Mursalin [the best among the Messengers.] Through him, faith was perfected and the blessing, through which one can reach God by adopting the path of salvation, has reached its pinnacle”. (Izala-e-Auham, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 3, p. 169–170)

He also states:

"Bear in mind that the charge levelled against me and my Jamaat, that we do not believe the Holy Prophet (sa) to be Khatamun-Nabiyyin, is a great calumny. The strength, certainty, understanding and solid conviction with which we believe the Holy Prophet(sa) to be Khatamun-Nabiyyin is millions of times more potent than the belief of others. They lack the capacity, and they have no inkling as to the true meaning and significance of Khatm-e-Nubuwwat. They have only inherited a word from their ancestors, but they do not comprehend the meaning or the significance of the belief in Khatm-e-Nubuwwat. On the other hand, with God-given insight (of which Allah is All-Aware), I believe the Holy Prophet(sa) to be Khatamun-Nabiyyin. God has manifested to me the truth of Khatm-e-Nubuwwat in such a profound way that I enjoy this elixir of heavenly wisdom in a manner beyond the imagination of those who have not partaken of this fountainhead." (Malfuzat, vol. 1, p. 227– 228)
