Prophets of Islam
Since the beginning of time, God has sent prophets to teach His message


 

Muslims believe in One Almighty Creator, Who is Omnipotent, Compassionate, and Merciful.  In His mercy, He sends guidance to mankind on how to properly worship Him and live our lives.

Islam teaches that God sends prophets to the nations, in different times and different places, to communicate His message.  Since the beginning of time, God has sent His guidance through these chosen people.  They were human beings who walked among their people and taught them about faith in One Almighty God, and how to walk on the path of righteousness.  The Qur'an says that "The Messenger believes in what has been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith.  Each one of them believes in God, His angels, His books, and His Messengers.   They say:  'We make no distinction between one and another of His Messengers.'   And they say:  'We hear, and we obey.  We seek Thy forgiveness, Our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys.'"  (Al-Baqarah, 2:285)

All prophets, peace be upon them all, gave guidance and instruction to their people about how to properly worship God and live their lives.  Since God is One, His message has been one and the same throughout time.  In essence, all prophets taught the message of Islam - to find peace in your life through submission to the One Almighty Creator -- to believe in God and to follow His guidance.

There are 25 prophets mentioned by name in the Qur'an, although Muslims believe that there were many more in different times and places.  Among the prophets that Muslims honor are:
