Belief in the Prophets

A necessary part of faith in Islam is to belief in all the prophets. Allah has sent many prophets to remind people how to follow the right path. They all brought essentially the same message. The Qur’an names 25 of them. Some of these are, in English and Arabic:
Adam –Adam
Jacob –Yaqub
Solomon Suleiman
Noah – Nub
Joseph – Yusuf
Jonah – Yunus
Abraham – Ibrahim
Job – Ayyub
Zachariah -Zakariya
Lot – Lut
Moses – Musa
John – Yahya
Ishmael – Isma’il
Aaron – Harun
Jesus – Isa
Isaac – Ishaq
David – Dawud
Muhammad – Muhammad
Through Angel Gabriel, Allah gave some prophets a special revelation or “Holy Book” which was a confirmation, reminder and update of what came earlier. Other prophets taught what had already been sent in earlier Holy Books.
Some Holy Books named in the Qur’an are:
The Suhuf or Scrolls of Abraham: Some of the inspired prayers of Abraham are quoted in the Qur’an.
The Taurat or Torah of Moses: Much of this can be found in the first five books of the Bible, along with other material.
The Zaboor or Psalms of David: Some of these can be found in The Book of Psalms in the Bible, together with other psalms.
The Injeel, Gospel or “Good News” of Jesus: Some of this can be found in the Gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, along with other material.
The Holy Qur’an: The Qur’an is the Holy Book revealed upon by Prophet Muhammad. It is the only revealed book in its pristine form with nothing added, taken away or changed.
