Abstract

This paper highlights the different visions of the Western societies understanding to the meaning of the Prophethood comparing with the Muslim societies understanding. However, The paper assumes that despite the existence of a misconception in the Western societies toward the meaning of the Prophethood, there are bright aspects of some intellectual elites can be described as dealt with Prophethood with kind of reverence and respect. Therefore, the paper will be keen to show some of these elites despite that the other elites in addition to the popular and traditional dominant perception dealt with Prophethood with kind of disdain, contempt and ridicule. The paper also examines the possibility of understanding and dialogue between the two cultures.
