As-Salamu `Alaykum. I have been wondering about this question for a long time. I have heard that the number of Prophets is 124,000. Where does that number come from and also are there any Prophets we believe in who are not mentioned in the Qur’an? Where can I get a complete list of the names of all Prophets?
Al-Khidr (peace and blessings be upon him) is that religious servant whom Allah the Almighty mentioned in the Qur’an in Surat Al-Kahf. Prophet Musa (peace and blessings be upon him) accompanied Al-Khidr and learned many lessons from him. According to the view which is deemed to be the most correct, Al-Khidr is no longer alive.
Dear scholars, As-salamu `alaykum. Was there Islam before Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was sent as a prophet to mankind? I pose this question because I wonder what the following verse refers to: (Ibrahim was not a Jew nor a Christian, but he was (an) upright (man), a Muslim, and he was not one of the polytheists) (Aal `Imran 3: 67). Jazakum Allahu khayran.
