How many Surah in the Qur`an have the titles named after different Prophets?

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

How many Surah in the Qur`an have the titles named after different Prophets?



(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




How many Surah with Prophets names

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Beloved Sister in Islam, to the best of our knowledge, of the 114 total Surahs of the Glorious Quran, the following Surahs are recognized by the name of the Noble Prophets of Allah:

  1. Surah 10 Yunus
  2. Surah 11 Hud
  3. Surah 12 Yusuf
  4. Surah 14 Ibraheem
  5. Surah 47 Muhammad
  6. Surah 71 Nuh


Beloved Sister, please do bear in mind that although the Surahs were Revealed by the Lord Most High, the names of each of the Surahs were not declared by Allah Subhanah but rather appointed by the Messenger of Allah (saws) and the believers only as a form of recognition of that Surah.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
