Who is the current Caliph of Islam?

Who is the current Caliph of Islam?

No, there is no current/present Caliph of Islam, because the succession and series of Allah’s Messengers ends at Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). Allah has sent His most beloved Prophet at the end and after Him, no Prophet or Messenger will come.

“(The Holy Prophet) Muhammad is not the father of any man

amongst you. Yes, he is the Messenger of Allah and the Last of all the


[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part. 22, Surah Al-Ahzaab, Ayah 40)

So, this proves that there is no current Caliph of Islam. After Him or till the day of Judgement no one is going to be have Prophethood. This is the most essential, basic, and significant faith of religion Islam. Those who don’t have a belief in it or contradicts are not among the Muslims and is a disbeliever and atheist.

There are multiple Verses from Quran that proves this that Hazrat Muhammad SAW is the last Caliph and Messenger of Islam. These verses given below show the love, support, and also prove that Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) is the last Prophet of Allah and no one comes after Him.

Here are some points, features, and aspects that will prove this “there is no present Caliph of Islam, only the Prophet SAW is the last Caliph and Messenger”

  • He was sent as a Messenger for all of mankind. (Part 9, Al-A’raaf:158)
  • He was made a bearer of glad tidings and a warner for all people. (Part 22, Saba: 28)
  • He warns the entire universe of the punishment of Allah. (Part 18, Al-Furqan: 01)
  • He brings out all the people from the darkness of disbelief into the light of faith. (Part 13, Ibrahim: 01)
  • He was sent as a mercy to all of the worlds. (Part 17, Al-Ambiya: 107)
  • Allah Almighty took a covenant from all the Prophets that when the Holy Prophet SAW comes, they must believe in him and support him. (Part 3, Aal-e-‘Imran: 81)
  • There is no mention of believing in or supporting any prophet after him.
  • The coming of previous Prophets was mentioned (Part 4, Aal-e- ‘Imran: 144, Part 17, Al-Ambiya: 41, Part 7, Al-An’aam: 34) but there is no mention of any other Prophet coming after him.
  • Sayyiduna ‘Isa confirmed the Torah and gave the glad tidings of the arrival of the Holy Prophet (Part 28, As-Saff,06) whereas the Holy Prophet did not give glad tidings of the arrival of any other Prophet after him.

Aspects from the point view of religion Islam that Prophet has brought:

  • Allah Almighty made his religion complete. (Part 6, Al-Maaidah,03) as it will not be abrogated like previous religions, rather it will remain until the Day of Judgement.
  • He was sent with guidance and the true religion so that this religion would prevail over all other religions. (Part 28, As-Saff, 09)

Details or points from the point of view of Holy book Quran that was revealed upon our beloved Prophet SAW and shows that there is no current Caliph and He (Holy Prophet SAW) is the last Caliph and no one is coming till the day of Judgement:

  • With regards to belief in the Holy Books, Allah Almighty mentioned the Quran and previous books (Part 1, Al-Baqarah, 04, Part 5, An-Nisa, 136, 162) but did not mention any Holy Book that would come after the Quran.
  • The Quran confirms previous Holy Books. (Part 26, Al-Ahqaaf, 29) but it did not confirm any book that would come after it.
  • The Quran is guiding advice for the entire universe. (Part 30, At-Takweer, 26)
  • The Quran is the means of guidance for all of mankind. (Part 1, Al-Baqarah, 185)

Have a look on the Hadees that was given by Nabi Kareem Hazrat Muhammad SAW:

“The similitude of all of the Prophets and me is

like that of a person who built a marvelous and beautiful building,

around which people began to walk, commenting, ‘We have not

seen a more excellent building than this, except for this (empty

space for a) brick (which is missing). So, I am the (final) brick (of

that building).”

(Muslim, p. 965, Hadees: 5959)

Meaning of “Khatm-e-Nabuwat” and Who is the current Caliph?

Having a faith or belief on the finality of Allah’s beloved Messenger Prophet Muhammad SAW is the basic foundation of Islam. You must have trust that He is the last Messenger and no one is going to come till the day of Judgement. This is obvious now that there is no current Caliph of Islam.

If you are contradicting this, that He is not the last Prophet then it means you are not only denying and contradicting the presence of Holy book Quran, but also denying the presence of consensus of Scholars, Companions, Jurists, and Muslim Ummah.

Allah Almighty says,

“(The Holy Prophet) Muhammad is not the father of any man

amongst you. Yes, he is the Messenger of Allah and the Last of all the

Prophets. And Allah knows everything.”

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 22, Surah Al-Ahzaab, Verse 40)

Here are some quotes:

Imam of the Ahl-Us-Sunnah, Abu Mansoor Al-Maaturidi (died: 333 AH) writes in his commentary ‘Ta’wilaat Ahl-Us-Sunnah’:

“Whoever claims to be a prophet after the Prophet Muhammad SAW should not be asked for any evidence or argument. Rather, he will be rejected because the Holy Prophet has said: i.e. there is no prophet after me.”

(Ta’wilaat Ahl-Us-Sunnah, vol. 8, p. 396, Taht-Al-Ayah 40)

The writer of Zad-ul-Maseer Abul-Faraj Abd-ur-Rahman Bin Ali Al-Jawzi (died: 597 AH) writes The meaning of Khatam-e-Nabuwat is the Last of the Prophets SAW. Sayyiduna Ibn Abbas said:

“What is meant by this is that if Allah Almighty had not ended the chain of Prophethood through Muhammad, then the son of the Prophet SAW would have remained alive and became a prophet after him.”

(Zad-ul-Maseer, vol. 6, p. 393, Taht-al-Ayah 40)

Allah Almighty has declared the virtue of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAW by saying this:

“Today, I have perfected for you your religion”

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 6, Surah Al-Maa`idah, Verse 3)

(Al-Fawatih Al-Ilahiyyah, vol. 2, pp. 158, Taht-al-Ayah 40)
