I came across the following on some Qadiani website.

Only to the general public, the finality of Prophethood (Khatamun Nabiyeen) means the last Prophet, this is not the correct meaning of the term, for the knowledgeable people. Even if a Prophet comes after the Era of Muhammad, it will make no difference to the end of prophethood that is associated with Muhammad. (Tahzeerun Naas by Maulana Qasim Nanotwi, page 3, 25).

also in moulana ashraf thanvi (ra) book nashut teeb he was quoted a hadith in which the prophet (saw) says 'the 1st thing which allah created was my noor from his noor and from it he created the whole world'

is this hadith sahih or has moulana ashraf thanvi (ra) just used it for fazail. the brealwi quote this hadith to support the fact the prohet (saw) is noor and claim so did moulana thanvi (ra)

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

1) With regards to the finality of prophet Muhammad (SAW) he is the last/final prophet and messenger, no prophet nor messenger will come after him for eternity. Many came as deputy of the prophet Muhammad (SAW) and will come (Inshallah) like the return of Hadhrat Isa (AS) as the leader and reviver of the ummah and the follower of the holy prophet (SAW).
Since Qadiyanies falsely believe Mirza Gulam Ahmad Qadiyani to be a prophet they claim that the possibility exists for prophets to come after Muhammad (SAW). They cite this fabricated khabar:
“The scholars of my ummah are like the prophets of Bani Israeel”.

2) Aqidah of Ahlus-Sunnah wal Jamaah is that Allah tala created the prophet (SAW) (Noor) light before any other thing and it was a created light. This noor is never a part from Allah’s noor. Anyone who believes the prophet (SAW) noor a part of Allah tala’s noor is a belief of shirk and similitude to that of Christians. But the holy Prophet (SAW) is the light of guidance, that Through this guidance light many have found guidance.
On the physical state it comprises of sufficient light in his blessed body. As stated on the hadith and this luminosity (Nooraniyat) can never be contrary to his humanness (Bashariyat). Lastly molana Tanwi (RA) would never had the same Aqidah as the beralwi since he was a god fearing great deobandi scholar.

And only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
