Muhammad was the final prophet because he delivered the final scripture. According to the Koran, he was not the last messenger (33:40). Any messenger to come after Muhammad is to preach and confirm existing scripture (3:81). Unfortunately, there is a strong human aversion to the idea of a living, "contemporary messenger." The Koran teaches that Muhammad was ridiculed by his contemporaries: "Is this the one who claims to be God's messenger?" they said. "Is this the one who disrespects your gods?" "Why didn't God  commission a better man?" (21:36, 23:44, 25:41, 43:31). The prophet Joseph was treated with suspicion and contempt, then, when he died the people declared that he was God's last messenger (40:34).

The vast majority of Muslims believe that Muhammad was the last messenger, even though this idea goes totally against Muhammad's teachings (7:35, 33:40).

God has provided powerful, physical, proof in support of my mission as His commissioned messenger to the New World.

God made a covenant with the prophets, that He will give them the scripture and wisdom. Thereafter, when a messenger comes to you (0 Humankind), confirming the scripture you have, you shall believe in him and support him. God said, "Have you accepted this, and make such a pledge with Me?" They said, "We accept." He said, "You have thus borne witness, and I am a witness along with you. (3:81)
