some didn't make it - this is true - but what about the all those who did
Yes it's disrespect. Again, Muhammad (pbuh) was the seal of The Prophets. For anyone to call themselves a Prophet OR Messenger after that is a lie against Allah. He's wasn't a Messenger, he was a teacher. A Messenger brings the new Word or Law or Book as given to him from on High. Everyone you can name within the last days of revelation were Prophets AND Messengers. Some, like Job or Jonus would be conisdered Messengers beacause they recieved Divine help and spread the word thereof to their people that God was One and to obey Him alone.
Allah did work through Elijah Muhammad in the attempted reformation of a people. Everything happens by His will though. The same way Immortal Technique is teaching people with his music. That doesn't make him a messenger.
