In Islam, Nubuwwah (Arabic: نبوة‎) means "Prophethood" and denotes that God has appointed perfect Prophets and Messengers to teach mankind Gods religion. Nubuwwah is among the five Shi'a Roots of Religion.

Shi'a believe that the prophets and messengers (Adam being the first prophet and Muhammad the last) appointed by God are impeccable and infallible in every aspect (i.e., in their beliefs, thoughts, actions, speech, etc.). Current Sunni belief (Ash'ari) is that prophets are only infallible in regard to revelation.
