Hazrat Adam (alaihis salaam) is the first human. He is also the first prophet
All humans are his children. Allah Ta’ala made Hazrat Adam (alaihis salaam) without the need of a mother or father. He was made from soil.
Allah Ta’ala made him His Caliph. Allah Ta’ala gave him the knowledge of all things and their names.
Allah Ta’ala ordered the Angels to prostrate to Hazrat Adam (alaihis salaam). All the Angels performed the prostration except Shaitaan, who refused and was therefore evicted forever and became a Kaafir.
There has come many Prophets from Hazrat Adam (alaihis salaam) to our beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (sallal laahu alahi wa sallam )
Hazrat Nooh (Naoh), Hazrat Ibrahim (Abraham), Hazrat Moosa (Moses), Hazrat ‘Isa (Jesus) were messengers and also Prophets.
Some other Prophets mentioned in the Holy Quran are: Hazrat Ismaeel, Hazrat Ishaaq, Hazrat Ya’ qoob, Hazrat Yusuf, Hazrat Moosa, Hazrat Haroon, Hazrat Shu’aib, Hazrat Loot, Hazrat Hood, Hazrat Dawood, Hazrat Sulaiman, Hazrat Ayoob, Hazrat Ilyaas, Hazrat Yahya, Hazrat Yunus, Hazrat Idrees, Hazrat Zulkifl and Hazrat Saaleh (alaihimus salaam)
The status of the Prophets varies from one another. Some are more superior to others and the most superior of all the Nabis is Hazrat Muhammadur Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wa sallam). The next most superior is Hazrat Ebrahim Khaleelullah ( alaihis salaam), who is followed by Hazrat Moosa ( alaihis salaam) and then Hazrat Esa (alaihis salaam), and Hazrat Nooh ( alaihis salaam). These five Ambiya are known as “Mursaleen-ulul-Azm”. They are also superior to all other Prophets.
Just as our leader Hazrat Muhammed (sallal laahu alaihi wa sallam) is the greatest of all the Prophets, (without comparison), His Ummah is the greatest of all the Ummats.
An exact number of how many Prophets that have been sent into this world is not known, but is said to be approximately 124000.
The last of all Prophets and Messengers and the most virtuous of all creations is Allah Ta’ala’s most beloved- our Master, Hazrat Ahmad Mujtaba Muhammad Mustafa (sallal laahu alaihi wa sallam).
Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wa sallam) is Khaatimun Nabiyeen (The Final Prophet). After the beloved prophet there has never been another Prophet nor will there be another Prophet. Who ever believes that there will be a Prophet or there has been a Prophet during our Prophet’s era or after or actually believes it as a possibility of someone obtaining Prophecy is a Kaafir.
