Muslims are obliged to acknowledge certain articles of faith, known as iman – objects of faith. There are six of them.
4. The Prophets – The Muslim understanding of the prophets is that they are the men of God used to influence history and to be mouthpieces for his teaching. The prophets have a prominent role in warning humans of the imminence of judgment as well as the consequences of earning the wrath of God.
According to Islam, of all the prophets, six are considered major prophets: Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad. Because Muhammad is the last and final prophet, he’s regarded as the “seal of the prophets,” the one who has rendered all prophecy complete and final.
Jesus (Isa in the Qur’an) is regarded as the holiest prophet, without sin, born of a virgin and interestingly, called “his word.” None of the prophets, while they are considered role models for people, are divine.
What’s astounding about the adherence to these prophets is that Muslims are not permitted to deny any of them. Read the list of these prophets again and note that all but Muhammad are in your Bible.
