The last prophet, or final prophet, is a term used in religious contexts to refer to the last person through whom God speaks, after which there is to be no other. The appellation also refers to that prophet which will induce mankind to turn back to God.

The phrase "last prophet" is used primarily in Islam, where it refers to Muhammad, whom Muslims hold to be the final prophet in the monotheistic Abrahamic religion. With the exception of Ahmadi Muslims, "Khatamu ’n-Nabiyyīn" ("Seal of the Prophets") is regarded by Muslims to mean that Muhammad was the last of the prophets sent by God.
The Iglesia ni Cristo, an independent, non-trinitarian Christian religion based in the Philippines, professes that Felix Manalo was the last messenger sent by God to reestablish the original church founded by Jesus.
Most other Christian churches deny that was or will be a definite last prophet, although the Cessationist perspective is held by much of Protestantism. Others, denominated "Continuationists", hold that prophecy continues, and a debate continues.
