“””The khitām of a group of people, the khātim of them, or the khātam of them, is the last of them, according to al-Lihyani. And Muhammad is khātim of the prophets. At-Tahdhib (of al-Azhari): Khātim and khātam are among the names of the Prophet. And in the Qur’an: “Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and khātim of the prophets,” that is, the last of them. And: It was also recited as khātam. And the saying of al-‘Ajjaj, “Blessed to the prophets is this khātim,” is based on the well-known recitation, with a kasrah (khātim). And also among his names is al-‘āqib, and its meaning is “last of the prophets.” Ibn Manẓūr (1883) [Written 1290]. لسان العرب / Lisān al-‘Arab (in Arabic). 15.
