(Risala). The risala is the Divine Mission of promulgating a new Sacred Law for which a Messenger (rasul) is sent to his people. Messagehood terminated with the Holy Prophet Muhammad who is the Seal of the Messengers, May the Salutations of Allah be upon him and Peace. Due to the Perfection of the Last Messenger and the Perfection of his Message mankind does not require another Sacred Law or another Way of Return to Allah. The message is complete, but its unfolding is continuous, always opening to express new meanings as the traveller progresses on the path.
