 01                Adam – Adam – آدم  – Prophet – Mentioned 25 TimesAdam, the first human being, Ranks as the first Prophet of Islam. Eve (Hawa) was The Prophet’s wife.

02                Enoch – Idrees /Idrees – إدريس – Mentioned 2 Times – Prophet. –  Idris lived during a period of drought inflicted by God to punish the people of the world who had forgotten God. Idris prayed for salvation and for an end to the suffering, and so the world received rain.

03                Noah – Nuh – نوح – Mentioned 43 Times – Prophet & Messenger – Although best known for his role in the story of the Deluge, Nuh became a primary preacher of monotheism in his day. Muslims believe his faith in God led to his selection for building the Ark.

04                Heber – Hud – هود – Mentioned 07 Times – Messenger - Muslims believe that only Hud, for whom the eleventh chapter of the Qur’an takes its name, and a few other people survived a great storm, similar to the Deluge five generations earlier. God inflicted the storm to punish the people of ʿĀd who had forgotten about God.

05                Methusaleh – Salih – صالح – Mentioned 09 Times – Messenger – According to the Qur’an, God ordered Saleh to leave behind his people, the tribe of Thamud, after they disbelieved and disobeyed God’s order to care for a special camel and instead killed it in Saleh’s and his followers’ (believers’) absence. God punished the people with a loud noise from the skies that killed his people instantly.

06                Abraham – Ibrahim – إبراهيم – Mentioned 69 Times – Prophet & Messenger – Muslims regard Ibrahim as one of the significant Prophets, because they credit him with rebuilding the Kaaba in Mecca. His family, including his son Ishmael, also receives credit for helping create the civilization around Mecca that would later give birth to the final prophet of Islam, Muhammad. Significantly, Ibrahim almost sacrificed his son Ismail (Ishmael) to God in an event now commemorated annually by Eid al-Adha. Among all the prophets, he first named believers “Muslims”meaning “those with full submission to God”

07                Ishmael – Ismael – إسماعيل – Mentioned 12 Times – Prophet & Messenger – Muslims regard Ismaïl, first-born son of Ibrahim, as a notable prophet in Islam for his near-sacrifice in adulthood. As a child, he – with his mother, Hajar (Hagar) – searched for water in the region around Mecca, leading God to reveal the Zamzam Well, which still flows to this day

08                Isaac – Is,haq –  إسحاق- Mentioned 17 Times – Prophet - According to Islamic tradition, Ishaq, the second-born son of Ibrahim, became a Prophet in Canaan. He and his brother Ismaïl carried on the legacy of Ibrahim as Prophets of Islam.

09                Lot – Lut – لوط – Mentioned 17 Times – Prophet & Messenger – Muslims know Lut best for attempting to preach against homosexuality in Sodom and Gomorrah, in addition to encouraging his people to believe in the Oneness of God, although his community mocked and ignored him. Islam also denies the acts which the Old Testament attributes to Lut, like drinking and becoming drunk, and having intercourse with and impregnating his two daughters.

10                Jacob – Ya’qub – Yakub – يعقوب / إسرائيل – Mentioned 16 Times – Prophet – The Qur’an portrays Yaqub as “of the company of the Elect and the Good”. He continued the legacy of both his father, Ishaq, and his grandfather, Ibrahim. Like his ancestors, he deliberately worshipped God exclusively.

11                Joseph – Yusuf – يوسف – Mentioned 27 Times – Prophet – Yusuf, son of Yaqub and great-grandson of Ibrahim, became a prominent advisor to the pharaoh of Egypt after he interpreted the pharaoh’s dream which predicted the economic future of Egypt. He spent a large part of his life away from his eleven brothers, who showed jealousy of Yusuf because their father favoured him. They took him out one day, telling their father that they would play and have fun, but they planned to kill him. Instead, they threw him down a well and told their father Yaqub that a wolf had eaten him. According to Islam, Yusuf received the gift of half of the beauty granted to mankind.

12                Jethro – Shu’ayb – شعيب – Mentioned 11 Times – Messenger – According to Islam, God appointed Shu’ayb, a direct descendant of Ibrahim, to guide the people of Midian and Aykah, who lived near Mount Sinai. When the people of the region failed to listen to his warnings, God destroyed the disbelievers’ villages. Although the Qur’an and the reported speeches of Muhammad mention that Musa married one of Shu’ayb’s daughters, the Old Testament tells the same story of a man named Jethro. Some scholars[ regard Jethro in the Old Testament as distinct from Shu'aib in the Qur'an.

13                Moses – Musa – موسى – Mentioned 136 Times – Prophet & Messenger - Moses, whom the Qur'an refers to more than to any other Prophet, had the distinction of revealing the Tawrat (Torah) to the Israelites. The Qur'an says Musa realized his connection with God after receiving commands from him during a stop at Mount Sinai. He later went on to free the enslaved Hebrews after the Egyptian pharaoh denied God's power. Musa subsequently led the freed Hebrews for forty years through the desert after they refused to obey God's command and enter the Holy Land. See the Qur'an, Sura Al-Ma'ida Qur'an 5:24, "They said: 'O Moses! while they remain there, never shall we be able to enter, to the end of time. Go thou, and thy Lord, and fight ye two, while we sit here (and watch).'" On another trip to Mount Sinai during this long journey, Musa received the Tawrat and the Ten Commandments. At the end of his life, according to Islamic tradition[ Musa chose to die to become closer to God instead of taking up an offer that would have extended his life.

14                Aaron – Harun – هارون – Mentioned 20 Times – Prophet & Messenger - Harun (Aaron) served as an assistant to his older brother Musa (Moses). In Islam, he, like Musa, received the task of saving the Israelites from the Egyptian pharaoh. He would often speak for Musa when Musa’s speech-impediment prevented him from doing so himself.

15                Elijah – Ilyaas – إلياس – Mentioned 02 Times – Prophet - Ilyas, a descendant of Harun (Aaron), took over control of the southern part of the Arabian Peninsula after the kingdom of Sulayman (Solomon) collapsed. Islamic tradition says he attempted to convince the people of the peninsula of the existence of only one God, but when the people refused to listen they were smitten[with a drought and famine.

16                Elisha – Al-Yasaa – اليسع – Mentioned 02 Times – Prophet - Al-Yasa (Elisha) took over the task of leading the Israelites after the death of Ilyas (Elijah). He attempted to show the king and queen of Israel the power of God, but they dismissed him as a magician. Subsequently, the Assyrians could make people burn[and inflict significant damage on them.

17                David – Daud – داوود – Mentioned 16 Times – Prophet - In Islam, God revealed the Zabur (Psalms) to Dawud (David). Dawud also has significance as the conqueror of Goliath. Note that Islamic tradition and the Bible differ in their accounts of the story of King David and Uriah

18                Solomon – Suleiman – سليمان – Mentioned 17 Times – Prophet - Sulayman (Solomon) learned a significant amount from his father David before God made him a Prophet. According to Islamic traditions, Sulayman received power to manipulate nature (including the Jinn) and the power to communicate with and control animals. Known for his honesty and fairness, he also headed a kingdom that extended into southern Arabia.[

19                Job – Ayub – أيوب – Mentioned 04 Times – Prophet - According to Islamic tradition, Ayyub received the reward of a fountain of youth, which removed all illnesses, except death, for his service to God in his hometown outside Al Majdal. Legend recounts that Ayyub suffered an illness for 18 years as test of patience carried out by God.

20                Issaiah – Most Likely Ezekiel – Dhul-Kifl- ذا الكفل – Prophet – Mentioned 02 Times - The status of Dhul-Kifl as a Prophet remains debatable within Islam, although all parties to the debate can agree[ in seeing him as a righteous man who strived in the way of God. Some studies identify Dhul-Kifl with Obadiah, mentioned in the Old Testament as taking care of a hundred prophets:

21                Jonah – Yunus - يونس/ ذا النون – Mentioned 04 Times – Prophet & Messenger - Islamic tradition states that God commanded Yunus (Jonah) to help the people of Nineveh towards righteousness. However, Nineveh's people refused to listen to his message, so Yunus decides to abandon trying to help them and leaves. A sea creature (probably a blue whale) then swallows Yunus, and realizing he has made a mistake by giving up on his people, Yunus repents. The sea creature spits him out; Yunus then returns to Nineveh, attempting once more to lead his people to righteousness, and this time they follow him.

22                Zacharias – Zakariya – زكريا – Mentioned 07 Times – Prophet - A descendant of Sulayman, Zakariya (Zachariah), became a patron of Maryam (Mary) the mother of 'Isa (Jesus). According to the Qur'an, he prayed to God asking for a son, since his sterile wife al-Yashbi (Elizabeth) could not provide one. God granted his wishes, temporarily lifting his wife's sterility and allowing her to give birth to Yahya ibn Zakariyya (John).

23                John (The Baptist) – Yahya – يحيى – Mentioned 05 Times – Prophet - Yahya (John), cousin to Issa (Jesus), Islam says that, throughout his lifetime, he captivated audiences with his powerful sermons which preached Abrahamic monotheism.

24                 Jesus – Issa – عيسى – Mentioned 25 Times – Prophet & Messenger - God sent one of the highest-ranked prophets in Islam, Eisa al-Maseeh, (Jesus the Messiah) to guide the Children of Israel. The Qur'an makes the nature of Jesus very clear, portraying him not as the physically begotten son of God, but rather as a nabi and rasul (Messenger) of God: "O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an Prophet Apostle of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His apostles. Say not "Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah. Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs." (Nisa 4:171) in Yusuf Ali's translation.[65]

‘Isa performed many miracles with the permission of God, for example: raising the dead, creating a bird from clay, and talking as an infant. Islamic traditions[state that he abstained from drinking alcohol. Tradition also states that he received a revelation, the Injil (Gospel), though according to Islam, it subsequently suffered from distortion[. Muslims believe that no crucifixion of ‘Isa took place, meaning he did not die on the cross. Muslims believe that God raised Issa Jesus up to himself and that Issa (Jesus) will return to Earth to fight the Dajjal (the Imposter) and to break the cross. The Qur’an and Saheeh Hadith tell a consistent story.

That they (Jews) said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-

 Issa, was the miracle birth son of Virgin Mother Mary (Miriam). Islam – after Christianity – is the only Religion that believes in The miracle birth of Jesus (Issa).

Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise;-

And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them;-

—Qur’an, Sura An-Nisa 4:157–159

From Hadith:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, son of Mary (Jesus) will shortly descend amongst you people (Muslims) as a just ruler and will break the Cross and kill the pig and abolish the Jizya (a tax taken from the non-Muslims, who are in the protection, of the Muslim government).

Then there will be abundance of money and no-body will accept charitable gifts

25                     Jews and Christians do not recognise Nabii Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). محمد – Prophet & Messenger – Mentioned all over The Holy Quraan..

Habib u’l A’zam, Imam u’l Anbiya Sayyidina Muhammad ibn ‘Abdullah, (53 B.H.-11 A.H.; 571-632 AD) ranks as the last Prophet in Islam (“seal of the Prophets“), with a message to all humanity.

 Muslims shun idolatry of any of the prophets, as their messages from God hold the most weight. Muhammad appeared on earth as the son of his father ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib and of his mother Amina bint Wahb az-Zuhriyya.

Born in Mecca in 571 AD (53 AH), Muhammad spent the first part of his mature years as a well-travelled merchant. He would often spend time in the mountains surrounding Mecca in prayer contemplating the situation within the city. At the age of forty, during one of those trips to the mountain, Muhammad began to receive and recite verses from God which, in recorded form, make up the Qur’an. He quickly spread the message which he received, converting a few others in the city, including his wife.

When oppression became intolerable for his followers, Muhammad first asked his fellow Muslims to move to Medina, and later he himself migrated to Medina away from the oppressors in Mecca. Muhammad served not just as a prophet, but as a military leader who helped defeat the Meccans in 624 during the Battle of Badr. He continued to lead the Muslims as Islam spread across the Arabian Peninsula. He performed the first Hajj in 629 and established Islam in the form that Muslims still practise it.

 Others continued Muhammad’s legacy after his death in 632, accepting the position of caliph (“successor”) to Muhammad. The Five Pillars of Islam were established[from Muhammad’s hadith after his death

 Plus Dua Prayers for Mother Miriam (Issa/Jesus) and Eve (Hawa)…
