THE PROPHETS IN ISLAM (PBUT)


The Islamic definition of a prophet is someone who has been chosen and favoured by Allah (God) to convey his message to the people on earth and to bring them to believe in and worship him alone. In Islam there are two types of prophets, one is the Nabi who are regular prophets sent to do as mentioned. The second type is the Rasool who are high prophets or messengers as they were sent a revelation in the form of a holy book, they are obviously higher in status.


Islam has 124000 prophets. The Prophet Muhammad was the final and greatest of them. Though mostly it’s the Semitic prophets of the Middle East that are mentioned in the Islamic faith. This isn’t to say the Europeans, Native Americans, Africans, central Asians, Aborigines, South Pacificers, Indians, Far easterners etc weren’t sent prophets as Muslims believe that Allah sent prophets to every people.

According to Quran ALLAH sent prophet’s to humanity, in different times & places to communicate His message. Since the beginning of time, God has sent His guidance through these chosen people.

Holy Quran revealed on

Idolatry of any of the prophets should be avoided, as their messages from God hold the most weight. His father’s name was ‘Abdullah ibn ‘AbdulMuttalib and his mother’s name was Amina bint Wahb az-Zuhriyya. Muhammad (SAW) is considered the most perfect creation by Allah. Born in Makkah in 53 B.H (571 CE), Muhammad (SAW) spent the first part of his life as a well-travelled merchant. He would often spend his time in the mountains surrounding Makkah in prayer contemplating the situation with the city. At the age of forty, during one of those trips to the mountain, Muhammad (SAW) began to, despite his illiteracy, receive and recite verses from Allah which today make up the Qur’an. He quickly spread the message he was receiving, converting a few others in the city, including his wife. He is the last (seal) of the prophets with a message to all humanity. When oppression became intolerable for his followers, Muhammad (SAW) first asked his fellow Muslims to migrate to Medina and later himself migrated to Medina away from the oppressors in Makkah. Muhammad (SAW) served not just as a prophet, but as a military leader who helped defeat the Makkans 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 as it is still practiced by Muslims today. Others continued Muhammad’s (SAW) legacy after his death in 632, having been given the position of caliph (or successor) to Muhammad (SAW). The Five Pillars were established after the prophet Muhammad‘s (SAW) death. Read More…
