Names of prophets in German

The prophets of Islam (Arabic: names of prophets in German, DMG al-nbīyāʾ in Islam) are the ones who are considered prophets in Islamic understanding. Therefore, God sent them to different peoples to convey God's message to them. Many are mentioned in the Qur'an as well as in the hadiths.

There are several verbs in the Qur'an that convey the idea of prophetic revelation. The most common forms of verbs that refer to divine revelation in the Qur'an consist of the root of the verb n-z-l/inn and refer to the "act of sending". Therefore, God, who mentions His throne in heaven, brings down His verses to His prophets and apostles to earth. However, revelation does not descend directly to the prophets. The apostles are the angels. So God sent them to the prophets by revelation.

Names of prophets in German

Faith in prophets and missionaries is one of the six rules of Islam. According to Islamic understanding, the Prophetic tradition actually begins with the ancestor of mankind, Adam, with whom it is said that God made an original covenant according to Surah 7: 172-173. Muhammad, in turn, is understood in Islam as the Seal of the Prophets, or the Seal of the Prophets, with which he concludes the series of divine revelations.

According to the Islamic point of view, all prophets and missionaries had a common message and always referred to each other. This is why the series of prophets and missionaries in Islam is called the "series of prophets". Thus, they all preached the same basic conviction or unity of God (monotheism) and His only worship, the occurrence of the last day (the bewildered day/day), and life after death. Prophets were sent to different peoples in different eras of history.

According to Islamic teachings, prophets were sent to different peoples at different periods of history. Accordingly, God sent at least one prophet to each people. Many prophets and missionaries (Moses and Jesus) were sent only to the Israelites (Ben-Israel/Ben-Israel). According to the sayings of the Qur'an and Sunnah, the message of the Prophet and the Prophet was addressed only to the people to whom they were sent. Muhammad's message alone was universal and addressed to all peoples.
