The purpose of this article is to explain and evaluate Wansbrough's hypotheses in matters related to prophecy. Hence, it first examines the distinction between the Qur'anic usage of the two titles "prophet" and "messenger" and the structures that indicate the appointment to prophecy and, then, discusses the possibility of adapting the infidels' slanders addressed to the Prophet (s) from the Old Testament narratives about the prophets. In the next step, he explains the universality of the mission of the prophets and the verses that indicate each of them, as well as the extent of the connection between these verses and the phrases of the Bible. Since Wansbrough has studied based on literary analysis, this article also evaluates his views using the method of analytical-critical research. Overall, the findings of this study are: Wansbrough's saying of resemblance of the unsavoury conducts quoted in the Qur'an to those mentioned in the Bible and his view of the distinctions between the "prophet" and the "messenger" are erroneous. Furthermore, among the Qur'anic expressions and verses, on his view, dealing with the appointment of a prophet, the limitation or generality of the mission of the prophets and the doctrine of superiority, only in a few cases may be agreed with.
