Prophets (a.s) of ALLAH (s.w.t) -

"I believe in ALLAH, in His Angels, His Scriptures, His Prophets, the Day of Judgment, and in the fact that every thing good or bad (in the world) is pre-destined by ALLAH the Exalted, and in the resurrection after death."

Belief in all the Messengers of ALLAH for a Muslim is:

The Prophets were people from among mankind who were given the message of Allah directly from the Angel Jibreel. According to a saying of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w), there are one hundred and twenty four thousand (1,24,000) Prophets (a.s) who have ever been sent down on earth. Only the main ones have been mentioned in the Holy Quran. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) was the seal of the prophets. After him no new prophet is to be. The Muslims believe that although his soul was the first to have been created by ALLAH, he was the last of all the prophets to be sent down on earth. If a person doesn't believe in any of the Prophet (a.s), is not a Muslim. All the prophets were people of merit and patience, belief and certainty, truthfulness and religiousness, chastity and impeccability, intelligence and brilliance, trustworthiness; and conveyance of the message. The Prophets (a.s) were numerous, the first of them was Adam (a.s), who was created from clay as an unimpaired human in the best of forms. After Him among his offspring are; Sheesh, Idrees, Nuh, Huud, Salih, Shoaib, Ibrahim, Lut, Ismail, Ishaq, Yaqub, Yusuf, Musa, Haroon, Yeshua, Yunus, Ayyub, Dhu-l-Kifl, Ilyas, Alyasa, Daood, Sulayman, Zakariyya, Yahya, Eesa, (a.s), and many others. The ALLAH's Messengers (a.s) are human beings, and ALLAH's servants. ALLAH appointed them to convey His messages to the other human beings. They were truthful; never lie, and did not commit sin. They showed miracles on Allah's commands; convey His messages in full, without adding, or leaving out anything from the orders of ALLAH. Nor did they withhold any of His messages. The Prophets (a.s) were also human beings, and ALLAH's servants, they convey the commands of ALLAH to His beings; were truthful and never told a lie, nor committed any sins. They did not subtract or add anything in the commands of ALLAH, nor did they hide any Divine orders. There is a minor difference between a Messenger (a.s), and a Prophet (a.s). A Rasool is that Messenger, who is given a new Shariat (Divine law) and a new Book. All Messengers are also known as Prophets (a.s), whether or not they are given a new Shariat (Divine law). Thus, a Nabi may followed the previous Shariat and the Book. The prophet were appointed only by ALLAH's choice; meaning that there were no role for human effort, or intentions in this regard. This bestow, solely, depends on ALLAH's will. Many Messengers and Prophets (a.s) came to this world only ALLAH knows their exact number. A Muslim should believe and testify that all of them were true and right Messengers of ALLAH. The first Prophet was Prophet Adam (a.s), the last Prophet was Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w). The Muslims believe that the appointment of the Prophets and Messengers (a.s) ended with the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w). No new Prophet will come until the Day of Judgment. After Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w), whosoever claims to be a prophet, is a liar. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) is the most exalted and glorious of all the Messengers and Prophets (a.s). He, too, is ALLAH's servant and obedient to Him. He is the most exalted after ALLAH, the Almighty. As the end of the Prophethood lasted by the death of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w), the chain of "Wahi", the messages sent through Jibreel from ALLAH, was also ended. There should be not any doubt for an Muslim to accept this fact. The one who says or deny it, is a non believer.
