We did aforetime send apostles before thee: of them
there are some whose story We have related to thee and some whose story We have not
related to thee. It was not (possible) for any apostle to bring a Sign except by the
leave of Allah: but when the Command of Allah issued the matter was decided in truth and
justice and there perished there and then those who stood on Falsehoods.( The Holy Quran
Surah Al-Ghaafir 78 )
There are twenty five prophets mentioned in the
Holy Quran by name. May peace and blessings be on all of Allah's messengers.
