Prophets in Islam (Arabic: الأنبياء في الإسلام‎) are those people who Muslims believe were assigned a special mission by God to guide humans. Islamic tradition holds that God sent messengers to every nation.[1] This is obligatory to accept in Islam.[2] Muslims believe that every prophet was given a belief to worship God and their respective followers believed it as well.[3] Each prophet, in Muslim belief, preached the same main belief, the Oneness of God, worshiping of that one God, avoidance of idolatry and sin, and the belief in the Day of Resurrection or the Day of Judgment and life after death. Each came to preach Islam at different times in history and some told of the coming of the final prophet and messenger of God, who would be named “Ahmed” commonly known as Muhammad. Each prophet directed a message to a different group of people, and thus would preach Islam in accordance with the times.
Messenger-Prophets were people whom have been ordered to convey and propagate what God revealed to them. To believe in the Messenger-Prophets means to believe that the God has sent them to creation to guide them, and perfect their life, and their hereafter, and he has aided them with miracles which demonstrate their truthfulness; and that they have conveyed the message of God; and have revealed what they were ordered to reveal to the responsible and accountable individuals; and it is obligatory to respect all of them, and not to discriminate or differentiate between any of them.[4] For information about whether or not Islam states that Mohammad and other Messengers or Prophets were always infallible, or unquestionable for any of their acts, see the Qur’an (5: 116) (11: 36 – 37, 40 – 47) (37: 139 – 142) (66: 1).[5][6][7][8]
Muslims believe that God finally sent Muhammad to transmit the message of the Qur’an, which is universal in its message. Muslims believe that the Qur’an will remain uncorrupted because previous Islamic holy books (the Torah given to Moses, the Psalms given to David and the Gospel given to Jesus) were for a particular time and community and because, even if the books were corrupted, many prophets were still to come who could tell the people of what was correct in the scripture and warn them of corruptions. Muhammad, being the last Prophet, was vouchsafed a book which will remain in its true form till the Last Day.[9] Surah 15:9 refers to the Qur’an as the Dhikr,[9] simultaneously labeling it as an authority given from the God of Abraham himself.
