By considering the notion of multiplication modules over a commutative ring with identity, first we introduce the notion product of two submodules of such modules. Then we use this notion to characterize the prime submodules of a multiplication module. Finally, we state and prove a version of Nakayama lemma for multiplication modules and find some related basic results.
