Difference between a Nabi(Prophet) and a Rasool (Messenger)

A Nabi (Prophet) is one to whom Allaah reveals something, and he passes on what Allah has revealed to him. If he is sent with that to those who go against the commandments of Allah, to convey a message from Allah to them, then he is a Rasool(Messenger). But if he follows a Sharee’ah that came before him, and is not himself sent to anyone to convey the message from Allaah to them, then he is a Prophet and not a Messenger.

-Ibn Tayymiyah
