124,000 Prophets

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

That number, while common, is questionable because the hadith for it are not mutawatir

As for your question all the prophets we know are in the Quran and there are only around 20 to 30 names mentioned there, so no we don't know all their names

^ come on koroi, even if the hadith is not mutawatar doesnt mean that prophets were only sent to middle east, since most of those mentioned were middle easterners.

No, there is no list available of all the 124,000 prophets, there are very few mentioned in the Quran, between 20-30, AFAIK.

The Quran says a prophet was sent to every people. It doesn't list names. Not every civilization had written historical records.

I get the impression that each time a prophet comes among a people, he delivers a true form of the same religion, i.e., Obey God, be righteous and do no wrong, and details. But as time advances, the negative forces slowly keep distorting the message (through people who can, e.g., kings and high priests) and ultimately manage to desecrate the correct code. Thats when a new prophet arrived.

I've actually read so many Islamic history books who have mentioned plenty of Prophets and their stories....

Probably when I have sufficient time (and when I am in the mood), I'll create a list here......

Adam as.gif

"Adam is the first prophet of Islam and the first human being. He was created by Allah but brought to life forty days after being kept as a dry body." He is an important figure in Judaism and Christianity as well and he is best known for the story of Adam and Eve.

ÅÏÑíÓ

Idris as.gif

Idris lived during a period of drought inflicted by Allah (swt) to punish the people of the world who had forgotten Allah (swt). Idris prayed for salvation and an end to the suffering, and so the world received rain.

äæÍ

Nuh as.gif

Although best known for the Deluge, Nuh was a primary preacher of monotheism at his time. His faith in Allah (swt) led to his selection for building the Ark.

åæÏ

Hud Eber as.gif

Hud, for whom the eleventh chapter of the Qur'an is named, was one of the few people to survive a great storm inflicted by Allah, similar to the Deluge five generations earlier, to punish the people of the `Ad who had forgotten about Allah (swt). Hud, by comparison and records, is never mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible.

ÕÇáÍ

Saleh as.gif

According to the Quran Allah ordered Saleh to leave behind his people, the tribe of Thamud, after they disbelieved and disobeyed Allah'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 an utter cry from the skies that killed his people instantly. Note that Saleh is not Shelah mentioned in the Old Testament.

ÅÈÑÇåíã

Ibrahim as.gif

Abraham is regarded as one of the significant prophets, because he is credited with building the Kaaba in Mecca. His family, including his son Ishmael, is also credited with helping create the civilization around Mecca that would later give birth to the final prophet of Islam, Muhammad. Ibrahim is also noted for almost sacrificing his son Ismail (Ishmael) for God in an event now commemorated annually by Eid ul-Adha. He is also the first prophet to name the believers as "Muslims" meaning "those with full submission to God".

áæØ

Lut as.gif

Lut is most notable in Islam for attempting to preach against homosexuality in Sodom and Gomorra in addition to preaching for his people to believe in the Oneness of Allah, only to be mocked and ignored by the people who lived there.

ÅÓãÇÚíá

Isma'il as.gif

Ismaïl, first-born son of Ibrahim, is a notable prophet in Islam for his near-sacrifice in adulthood. As a child he and his mother Hagar's search for water in the region around Mecca led Allah to reveal the Zamzam well.

ÅÓÍÇÞ

Ishaq as.gif

Ishaq, second-born son of Ibrahim as.gif , became a prophet in Canaan. He, along with his brother Ismaïl,as.gif carried on the legacy of Ibrahim as.gif as prophets of Islam.

íÚÞæÈ

Yakub as.gif

Yakub, according to the Qur'an was "of the company of the Elect and the Good"and he continued the legacy of both his father, Isaac, and his grandfather, Abraham. Like his ancestors, he was committed to worshipping God exclusively.

íæÓÝ

Yusuf as.gif

Yusuf, son of (Yakub) and great-grandson of Ibrahim, became a prominent advisor to the king of Egypt since the king was believed to have seen a dream, which was interpreted by Yusuf that predicted the economic state of Egypt. He spent a large part of his life away from his eleven brothers, who were jealous of Yusuf because their father favored him. They took him one day, telling their father that they where going to play and have fun, but they planned to kill him. Instead, they threw him down a well and told their father Yaqub that he was eaten by a wolf. Yusuf was gifted with half of the beauty granted to mankind.

ÃíæÈ

Ayyub Job as.gif

Ayyub was rewarded by a fountain of youth, which removed all illnesses except death, for his service to Allah in his hometown outside Al Majdal. Ayyub is believed to have suffered an illness for 18 years as test of patience by Allah.

ÔÚíÈ

Shu'aib as.gif

Shu'aib was a direct descendant of Abraham. he was appointed by Allah to guide the people of Midyan and Aykah, who lived near Mount Sinai. When the people of the region failed to listen to his warnings, Allah destroyed the disbeliever's villages. Although it is mentioned in the Qur'an, and by the reported speeches from Muhammad that Musa married one of Shu'aib's daughters, and the same thing is mentioned in the Old Testament for a man named Jethro, some scholars believe that Jethro in the Old Testament is not the same person as Shu'aib in the Qur'an.

ãæÓì

Musa as.gif

Moses, referred to in the Qur'an more than any other prophet, is significant for revealing the Tawrat (Torah) to the Israelites. The Qur'an says Musa realized his connection with Allah 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 Allah's power. Musa subsequently led the freed Hebrews for forty years through the desert after they refused to obey Allah's command and enter the Holy Lands, saying to Moses (as mentioned in Qur'an [Qur'an 5:24], "O Moses! We will never enter (the land) while they are in it. So go thou and thy Lord and fight! We will sit here." During this long journey, on another trip to Mount Sinai Musa received the Tawrat and the Ten Commandments. At the end of his life, Musa chose to die to be closer to Allah instead of taking an offer that would have extended his life.

åÇÑæä

Harūn as.gif

Harun (Aaron) served as an assistant to his older brother Musa (Moses). He, like Musa, was given 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.

Ðæ ÇáßÝá

Dhul-Kifl (possibly elijah)

The status of Dhul-Kifl as a prophet is debatable within Islam, although both sides can agree that he was indeed a righteous man who strived in the way of God. Some studies also note that Dhul-Kifl can be also Obadiah, who is mentioned in the Old Testament to be the one that took care of 100 prophets. He is also believed to have possibly been Gautama Buddha.

ÏÇæÏ

Dawud as.gif

the Zabur (Psalms) were revealed to Dawud (David) by God. He is also significant as he is the one who defeated Goliath. It is worth to note that the story of King David with Uriah according to the Islamic tradition is different, thus the acts attributed to King David in the Old Testament like sending Uriah to be killed for the purpose of marrying his wife is denied in Islam.

ÓáíãÇä

Süleyman as.gif

Süleyman (Solomon) learned a significant amount from his father Daud before being made a prophet by Allah. Süleyman was given power over all things, including the jinn. Known for his honesty and fairness, he also led a kingdom that extended into southern Arabia.

ÅáíÇÓ

Ilyas as.gif

Ilyas (Elijah), descendant of Harun (Aaron), took over control of the southern part of the Arabian Peninsula after Sulaiman's (Solomon)kingdom collapsed. 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.

ÇáíÓÚ

Al-Yasa as.gif

Al-Yasa (Elisha) took over the job of leading the Israelites after Ilyas' (Elijah) death. He attempted to show the king and queen of Israel the powers of Allah, but was dismissed as a magician.

íæäÓ

Yunus

Yunus as.gif was commanded by Allah to help the people of Nineveh towards righteousness.

ÒßÑíÇ

Zakariya (as)

A descendant of Süleyman, Zakariya (Zachariah was a patron of Maryam (Mary) the mother of 'Isa. According to the Qur'an, he prayed to Allah asking for a son, since his sterile wife al-Yashbi could not provide one. Allah granted his wishes, temporarily lifting his wife's sterility and allowing her to give birth to Yahya (John).

íÍíì

Yahya (as)

Yahya (John) was cousin to Isa (as), throughout his lifetime Yahya captivated audiences with his powerful sermons that preached Abrahamic monotheism.

ÚíÓì

Isa (Jesus) (as)

One of the highest ranked prophets in Islam, Eisa al-Maseeh, was sent to guide the Children of Israel. The Qur'an makes it very clear that in Islam, Jesus is not the begotten (physical) son of Allah, but rather a nabi and rasul (messenger) of God.

'Isa performed many miracles with the permission of Allah. For example, raising the dead, creating a bird from clay, talking as an infant. Islamic traditions states that he abstained from drinking alcohol. It also states that he received a revelation, the Injil (Gospel), though according to Islam, it has been distorted. We believe that 'Isa was not crucified, meaning he was not killed on the cross. Isa was raised up to Allah and will return to Earth to fight the Dajjal during the time of the Mahdi, however in Quran there is no evidence and clear indication of Isa's return to Earth to fight the Dajjal. This is only in authentic ahadeeth.

ãÍãÏ

Muhammed (pbuh)

Habib u'l A'zam, Sayyidina Muhammed ibn 'Abdullah,(53 B.H-11 A.H; 571-632 AD) is the last prophet in Islam ("seal of the Prophets")

Other prophets

We believe in other prophets other than those mentioned by name in the Quran. There are many verses in the Quran treating this:

"And certainly We sent messengers (rasul) before you: there are some of them that We have mentioned to you and there are others whom We have not mentioned to you..." [Qur'an 40:78]

"For We assuredly sent amongst every People a messenger..."[Qur'an 16:36]

We believe that God has sent 124,000 messengers all over the world, as mentioned by the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in the Hadith.

Al-Imran is mentioned in the Qur'an, he was father of Maryam. Al-Khidr is not mentioned by name, but is traditionally assumed to be referred to in Qur'an 18:66. Biblical prophets Danyal (Daniel), Ishaia (Isaiah), Armya (Jeremiah), and Samuel are mentioned by Ibn Kathir in his book as prophets.

Luqman is mentioned in the sura named after him but it is unclear whether he is a prophet or a wali. According to the most wide-spread Shiite belief, Luqman was a wise man, not a prophet nor a wali. The reported news hold that Luqman had a dream, and in that dream he was asked to choose between being a King and a wise man, and he chose the second.

Additional numerous historical figures may have been prophets, but this is a source of debate and contention, among them: Zoroaster, Gautama Buddha, Krishna and Rama. However, there is no way of knowing for sure since they are not mentioned by name in the Qur'an. An argument often used in support of the prophethood of such men is that they came with the word of God, but it was later corrupted, this accounting for the differences between Islam, and the respective religions with which each man is associated. The Hadith and Qur’an support such claims that say that a messenger was sent to every people.

Maryam mother of 'Isa

Main articles: Maryam and Mary

A few scholars (e.g. Ibn Hazm) have argued that she may have been a nabi and a prophetess, since she was sent a message from God via an angel. The Qur'an, however, does not explicitly state that she is one. According to the Islamic belief, she was a holy woman, but she was not a prophet. In the Qur'an, 'Isa is usually referred to as 'Isa ibn Maryam (Jesus, son of Mary), a matronymic, indicative of Jesus having no father.

Some examples of prophets in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) include Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Miriam, Isaiah, Samuel, Ezekiel, Malachi, and Job. In Jewish tradition, Daniel is not counted in the list of prophets.

A Jewish tradition suggests that there were 600,000 male and 600,000 female prophets. Judaism recognizes the existence of 48 male prophets who bequeathed permanent messages to mankind.[2] According to the Talmud there were also seven women who are counted as prophets whose message bears relevance for all generations: Sarah, Miriam, Devorah, Hannah (mother of the prophet Samuel), Abigail (a wife of King David), Huldah (from the time of Jeremiah), and Esther.

Allah knows best but the prophet did tell us of 124,000 prophets and the koran tells us every people recieved a prophet. China India the Americas (azteks, red indians etc) Australian aboriginals all recieved their prophets speaking their own dialect. This way Allah swt has made sure everyone recieved his laws and no one was left out. The idea that only the middle east recieved prophets is absurd as then Allah would be an unjust God. Who these prophets are we cant be sure but obviius ones like budda krishna tao eetc cause they taught the same type of laws in the koran. the only thing we know for sure is any prophet after Muhamed SAAW is a lier as the koran tells us hes the seal of the prophets.

Wa Salaam

124.000 Prophets (as) and Prohet Muhammad ( pbuh) the Seal of Prophethood Had 124.000 SAHABAS according to some ahadeeths. One can notice that there are TWO ISMA'IL as Prophets, The Son of ABRAHAM (as) and another one ( search on SC)

The Salafi-wahhabis Sunni accept prophethood from all mankind except the Blacks; Cuz When you say Luqmaan Is Reported as a prophet by certain hadeeths, They Come urgently saying it is da'if KAZA KAZA WA KAZA ... with harsh words

The Racist Salafi-Wahhabis Talebs of Ibn Taymiyyah and Abdul Wahaab Knows Allah Granted Prophethood to All Mankind communities, Except to The BLACK people.

WALLAHI THEY ARE ZALIMEENS TO SAY WHAT THEY DON'T KNOW FOR SURE ON BEHALF'S GOD!

As A Black Son Of Blacks I curse the racism of Salafi-Wahabi beliefs and May GOD Curse tham.

GOD BLESS the SHIA 12ers, At least They have Imam Ali ibn Musa Al REDHA (as) and Bibi Nagysse (as) as Blacks Like Holy prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Got MARYAM al GYPTYA as wife and the Mother of his late son hazrat IBRAHEEM (as) died at the age of 2 years and thus the AHL UL BAYT are not Racists like the SUNNI Caliphs and teachings.

Maa Salaam
