Transcript of Prophets in Islam

A prophet is someone who has been chosen and favoured by Allah to convey his message to the people on earth and to bring them to believe in and worship Him alone.
The Prophet's Seal
All Prophets were sent to their own people and for their own time.

Prophets mentioned in Qur'an
Only 25 Prophets mentioned in the Holy Quran:
Prophets in Islam
"...And (there is) a guide for every people (13:7)."
1. The first type is Nabi (Prophet) who were prophets sent without a Holy Book.
In Islam there are two types of prophets:
Number of Prphets
Ulul 'Azm (Arch Prophets)
A Prophet, is one who is purified of all sins, guides people to truth and sets a perfect example for them to follow. They have a strong relation to Allah.
Prophet Muhammad, however, was sent to all of humanity regardless of time or place.

Believing in the Prophets is one of the 7 articles of faith. A Muslim must believe in all the previous Prophets and the original previous Scriptures.
All Prophets came with the same message:
To believe in Allah without any partners, encourage good and prohibit evil.
"And every ummah had a messenger...(10:47)."
"...And (there is) a guide for every people (13:7)."

Allah says in the Qur'an:
2. The second type is the Rasool (Messenger) who are higher in ranks as they were sent a revelation in the form of a holy book.
The Almighty Allah states:

"... There are some of them that We have mentioned to you and there are others whom We have not mentioned to you...(40:78)."

Over 124,000 Prophets were sent to guide mankind to worship of one Allah. We do not know the exact number or all their names as only Allah has that knowledge. Some are mentioned in the Quran. Adam was the first Prophet to be sent and the last of the Prophets was Muhammad.

The five major prophets according to the Quran are:

1. Noah
2. Abraham
3. Moses
4. Jesus
5. Muhammad

Prophet Noah – Nuh (’alyhis salaam) called his people to worship Allah alone for 950 years, but they refused to mend their ways. Allah ordered him to build an Ark after which all the Disbelievers were drowned.
Abraham (Ibrahim)
Abraham fulfilled all the commandments and trials which God tried him with over his lifetime. a model for mankind. The Islamic holy day Eid al-Adha is celebrated in memory of the bravery of Abraham, and Muslims perform the pilgrimage to pay homage at the Kaaba which Abraham had set up and reformed.
Moses (Musa)
Moses was sent by Allah to the Pharaoh of Egypt and the Israelites to guide them and warn them of the punishment of the Hellfire.

Moses is also very important in Islam for having been given the revelation of the Torah,
Jesus (Isa)
Was the son of Maryam and given many miracles to perform. He was given the injeel and called people to Islam.

When the enemies of Prophet Isa plotted to kill him, Allah saved his life by lifting him up alive to the heavens.
Muhammad (PBUH) was the last and seal of all the Prophets. The hardest of all the tasks given to any Prophet is our Beloved Prophet Mohammed because the revelation of the Quran came to him. The Quran is the last of all revelations and Prophet Muhammad is for all of mankind.
