He is believed by Muslims and Bahá'ís to be a messenger and prophet of God . Muslims believe that Islam was not his own invention but was revealed by God, [ 2 ] [ 3 ] and most consider him to be the last prophet of God [ 4 ] [ n 1 ] Muslims thus consider him the restorer of an uncorrupted original monotheistic faith ( islām ) of Adam , Noah , Abraham , Moses , Jesus and other prophets .
