Names of all the 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:

What are the names of all the prophets? In sorting order? 


(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.)




Names of all the Prophets

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.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 40 Surah Gafir verse 78:O Prophet, We have sent many a Messenger before you. Of them there are some whose stories We have related to you, and of others We have not related.


The truth is that Allah Subhanah Alone knows where and how many Prophets He has sent on the earth for the guidance of mankind (one hadith states the number in excess of 124,000) before He sent His Last and Final Messenger, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws), with the One Universal Message for all of mankind.


Allah Subhanah only mentions about 26 of these Prophets by name in the Quran.

Prophet Adam (a.s.)

Prophet Idris (a.s.)

Prophet Noah (a.s.)

Prophet Hud (a.s.)

Prophet Salih (a.s.)

Prophet Ibrahim (a.s.)

Prophet Lut (a.s.)

Prophet Ismail (a.s.)

Prophet Ishaaq (a.s.)

Prophet Yaqoob (a.s.)

Prophet Yusuf (a.s.)

Prophet Shoaib (a.s.)

Prophet Musa (a.s.)

Prophet Haroon (a.s.)

Prophet Uzair (a.s.)

Prophet Ilyaas (a.s.)

Prophet Dawood (a.s.)

Prophet Sulaiman (a.s.)

Prophet Yunus (a.s.)

Prophet Ayyub (a.s.)

Prophet Dhul Kifl (a.s.)

Prophet Yasa’a (a.s.)

Prophet Zakariyya (a.s.)

Prophet Yahya (a.s.)

Prophet Isa (a.s.)

Prophet Mohamed (saws).


Some incidents of Hadrat Dhul-Qarnain, Hadrat Khidr (not by name), and Hadrat Luqman are also mentioned in the Quran, but in the opinion of most scholars they were not Prophets of Allah Subhanah. Allah Alone Knows Best.


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