comment What is the purpose of the mosquito?
@IsaacMoses there may be other purposes, as other answers pointed out, but the point is that there does not have to be a particular purpose for each and every specie or aspect of creation as the OP seems to assume

@DoubleAA no. we know more or less what will happen as the rambam explains there. we're just not sure about the details. return of prophecy is part of the final redemption (Geulah). how about you bringing a source that it is separate from the Geulah.

we cannot know the exact details of this as the Rambam says chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/1188357/jewish/… but we will see the prophecies being fulfilled such as the ingathering of the exiles to israel. Certainly someone like muhamad who went around beheading people who did not believe in him, (and who ISIS is following his example today) does not fit the bill.

i think the muslims claim the sages lied so this does not really answer from their perspective. would be improved to add some verses on this
