NAMES OF  PROPHETS AND MESSENGERS  

Heading 1

True Living God's Prophets Names List 

Messengers & Prophets are Chosen Persons by God:

God does not send His angels to every single individual or person, nor He does He open the skies so people can climb-up to receive His message.  His way of communication is through human prophets who receive the message through angels and convey to people.

The creator of Earth, Sun, Moon, Seven Heavens, all the creatures: the true God conveys His message and relates His will through human prophets.  They form a link between the earthly people and the heavens, in the sense that God has selected them to deliver His message and commandments, books to human beings.  There are no other channels to receive divine communications, scriptures.  This is the system of communication between the Creator and the created mankind. 

To have faith in the prophets (or messengers) is to firmly believe that God chose morally upright men to bear His message and pass it to humanity.  Blessed were those who followed them, and wretched were those who refused to obey.  They faithfully delivered the message, without hiding, altering, or corrupting it.  Rejecting a prophet is rejecting the One who sent him, and disobeying a prophet is disobeying the One who commanded to obey him.

Names of Allah (SWT) Prophets & Messengers:

All the Prophets and Messengers some names listed below had no personnel desires and brought best of its kind: teachings, morality, conduct and peace - Their message was for humanity revealed from our Lord (Allah SWT) to Prophets and Messengers, no trace of any human influence.

Their key message was exactly same and one that worships one God (Allah SWT), Originator and Sustainer of Worlds, Who is most high and will gather all mankind on the day of judgement and reward (paradise forever) or punish based on their deeds in the worldly life (before death).

Names of Prophets and Messengers in  Holy Books, Scriptures Revealed 

The God sent to every nation a prophet, mostly from amongst them, to call them to worship God alone and to shun false gods.

"And ask (O Muhammad) those of Our prophets whom We sent before you: ‘Did We ever appoint gods to be worshipped besides the Most Merciful (God)?’" (Quran 43:45)

Muslims believe in all those prophets/messengers names mentioned in Islamic sources (Torah, Bible, Quran), such names are Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, David, Solomon, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, to name a few.  A general belief is held in those not mentioned by name, as God says: 

"And, indeed We have sent prophets before you (O Muhammad), of some of them We have related to you their story, and of some, We have not related to you their story..." (Quran 40:78)

The firm believes of Muslims that the final prophet was the Prophet of Islam, name Muhammad (PBUH), and there will be no messenger or prophet after him.

To appreciate this fact, must need to understand that the teachings of the last prophet are preserved in original language in their primary sources.  The message of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is preserved and clear and will remain preserved until the end of this world. There is no need for another prophet or messenger.  In the case of earlier prophets, their scriptures were lost or their message was corrupted to the point that truth was hardly distinguishable from falsehood.
