Khātam al-Nabiyyīn (Arabic: خَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ), or Seal of the Prophets (sometimes rendered as Khatam an-Nabuwwah) is a title used by the Qur'an to designate the Islamic prophet Muhammad. It is often understood to mean that Muhammad is the last in a series of prophets who, according to Muslim beliefs, were chosen by God to deliver the divine message of Islam. Other interpretations of the Arabic word Khātam are a seal (of approval), a seal as a means of authentication, and/or superiority. Muslims generally agree that Muhammad received the final revelation from God, in the form of the Qur'an, and that it was intended for all mankind, for all time.
