I read that the latter day saints believe in Muhammad as prophet, how true is this and what does that mean for them. I would want this to be answered by the LDS church goers only.

Could you split your question into two? They're very different topics. –  Matt Aug 24 '13 at 17:45

I have removed the second, unrelated question. I encourage you to ask that as a separate question. –  Flimzy Aug 25 '13 at 23:48
Thanks @Flimzy. When that's done, I'll splice my answer for that question into the new one. –  Matt Aug 26 '13 at 0:28

1 Answer 1

While Latter-day Saints respect the beliefs of others, they don't revere or recognize Muhammad as a prophet.

In LDS history, the first prophet in our dispensation (a consecutive period of time where the gospel is on the earth and revealed, or "dispensed," through prophets) was Joseph Smith. Before that, the last prophet we have record of is Moroni, son of Mormon, who compiled The Book of Mormon. That was about 421 A.D, well before Muhammad's time.
