What I ask is, on what authority do you stand on, where you state a clear contradiction to the statement of the Holy Prophet (saw)? The Holy Prophet (saw) said that prophethood continues with dreams and vision, as 1/46th part of it, so there is no ifs ands or buts about that.
At the return of Isa (as), even he will receive Wahy from Allah, which is mentioned in Sahih Muslim. Besides, I remember an Imam saying that Ilhaam can happen for ordinary Muslims, but the legislative Wahy cannot be given anymore by Allah to ordinary Muslims. Ilhaam has happened with many Buzurg in the past.
As for ordinary people not getting revelation, and only Prophets getting them, I say you are wrong beyond belief. Have you not read the Qur'an verse 28:7, where the mother of Musa (as) was given revelation from Allah? Did Allah not reveal how Isa (as) would turn out to be to Hazrat Maryam (ra)? And that is narrated in both Surah Al-Imran and Surah Al-Maryam. She was given revelation to shake the tree to let ripe dates fall on her when the birth pangs came upon her during the birth of Isa (as). And in the beginning of Surah Al-Maryam, Allah mentions how He spoke with Hazrat Zakariyya (as). Were any of these people Prophets of Allah? Clearly not. Yet they had revelations given to them, and Allah preserved these facts by mentioning this to us in the Holy Qur'an.
Yes, Wahy had stopped when the Holy Prophet (saw) passed away, so the Muslims were sad about this. But revelation had not ceased in general. There is a mention in the Sirat Rasulullah (saw) of Ibn Hisham, where when the Holy Prophet (saw) was being shrouded, there was an argument between the Sahaba (ra), then they had a sleepiness come over them and a voice told them what they should do. So they all did as they were told. Here is the reference:
"Yahya b. 'Abbad b. 'Abdullah b. al-Zubayr from his father 'Abbad from 'Aisha: When they wanted to wash the apostle dispute arose. They did not know whether to strip him of his clothes as they stripped their dead or to wash him with his clothes on. As they disputed God cast a deep sleep upon them so that every man's chin was sunk on his chest. Then a voice came from the direction of the house, none knowing who it was: 'Wash the apostle with his clothes on.' So they got up and went to the apostle and washed him with his shirt on, pouring water on the shirt, and rubbing him with the shirt between him and them." (The Life of Muhammad, Translation by A. Guillaume, p. 688.)
I strongly suggest you go to the references I told you in the Qur'an and see for yourself what it says. The Holy Qur'an, Ahadith of the Holy Prophet (saw), the life example of the Sahaba (ra) and the Naik Buzurg of the past all stand in complete disharmony with what you are saying. Ilhaam continues, and with the coming of Isa (as), the Wahy continues to an extent as well.
