Prophets and messengers in the Qur'an
Ye sab Tumhara karam hai Aqqa ki baat ab tak bani hui hai
Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”
[Sunan Tirmidhi, Vol 2, Page 116 - Sunan Daarimi, Vol 2, Page 336]
I'm aware u asked only the ones mentioned in the Qur'an, However i would like to share u the ones recommended by our beloved Prophet Muhammad pbuh from his sunnah... Sunnah and the Holy Qur'an are not apart, but they compliment one another.
Du‘aa’s (prayers) at times of distress
Imaam Ahmad reported from ‘Abdullah ibn Mas‘ood, may Allaah be pleased with him: "The Messenger of Allaah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said: "There is no slave who, when he is stricken by anxiety and sorrow, says ‘O Allaah, I am Your slave and the son of Your male slave and female slave. My forelock is in Your hand (i.e., You have complete mastery over me), Your command over me is forever executed, and Your decree over me is just. I ask You by every name belonging to You which You named Yourself with, or revealed in Your Book, or You taught to any of Your creation, or You have preserved in the knowledge of the Unseen with You, that You make the Qur’aan the life of my heart and the light of my breast, and a departure for my sorrow and a release for my anxiety’ - but Allaah will remove his sorrow and replace his grief with joy." The people said: "O Messenger of Allaah, we should learn these words." He said: "The one hears them should learn them."
Ibn ‘Abbaas reported that at times of distress, the Messenger of Allaah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) used to say: "There is no god but Allaah, the All-Great, the Patient; there is no god but Allaah, Lord of the Mighty Throne; there is no god but Allaah, the Lord of heaven, the Lord of earth, and the Lord of the Noble Throne." (reported by al-Bukhaari, may Allaah have mercy on him, no. 5870).
The Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said: "The prayer for one stricken by distress is: "O Allaah, it is Your mercy that I hope for, so do not leave me in charge of my affairs even for a blink of an eye, and rectify for me all of my affairs. None has the right to be worshipped except You." (Reported by Imaam Ahmad in al-Musnad, Abu Dawud in al-Sunan, Kitaab al-Adab, Baab maa yaqool idhaa asbaha; see also Saheeh al-Jaami‘, 3388).
Asmaa’ bint ‘Umays said: "The Messenger of Allaah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said to me: ‘Shall I not teach you some words to say at times of distress? "O Allaah, You are my Lord and I do not associate anything with You."’" (Reported by Abu Dawud in al-Sunan, Kitaab al-salaat, Baab fi’l-istighfaar; see also Saheeh al-Jaami‘, no. 2623).
The Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said to his companions: "Shall I not tell you some words which, if distress or grief befalls any of you and he offers this prayer (supplication), it will bring him joy? It is the du‘aa’ of Dhoo’l-Noon (i.e. Yunus or Jonah): ‘There is no god but You, Glory to You; verily I was one of the wrongdoers.’" (Saheeh al-Jaami‘, no. 2605).
Anas ibn Maalik said: "Whenever something distressed him, the Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) used to say: ‘O Ever-Living, O Self-Sustaining, by Your mercy I seek Your help." (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, no. 3446).
You must recite these du‘aa’s, may Allaah benefit you thereby and replace your sorrow with joy. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Our Lord descends to the lowest heaven every night when the last third of the night remains, and says: “Who will call upon Me, that I may answer him; who will ask of Me that I might give him; who will seek My forgiveness that I might forgive him?” Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim.
And Allah knows best
Mashallah, great informatoins,,, this means that the name of OUR HOLY PROPHAT MUHAMMAD PEACE BE UPON HIM HAVE MENTIONED MORE THAN OTHER PROPHETS,,, MASHALLAH,, \
RIGHT PART OF YOUR POST IS MISSING.. YOU PLEASE TRY TO ADJUST IT...
I'm interested to know how a prophet is determined in Islam? Because it is written that "When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously:" Deuteronomy 18:22
In other words - the sign of a prophet is to speak about things to come and that thing must come to pass. I am not aware of the Qur'an containing any prophecies, is that correct?
Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Raheem.Allahumma Salli wa Sallim wa Barik 'ala Sayyidina Muhammadin Habeebik, wa Sayyidina Ibrahima Khaleelik, wa 'alaa Jami'i Ambiyaa'ik.
اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ حَبِيبِكَ وَسَيِّدِنَا اِبْرَاهِيْمَ خَلِيْلِكَ وَعَلى جَمِيْعِ اَنْبِيَائِكَ
"O Allah, send prayer and peace and blessing upon our Liegelord Muhammad, Your Beloved; and our Liegelord Abraham Your Friend; and upon all Your Prophets."
Islamically, its not important for us - anymore I mean - to determine whether a prophet-claimant is a prophet or not. Islam is founded on the fact that our Liegelord Muhammad, Sall-Allahu 'alayHi waSallam, is the Seal, the Last, of the Prophets and the Messengers. Therefore, anyone claiming to be a prophet after Him is either insane or a liar and should be dealt as such.
The Law of the Torah, which you quoted, was meant for the people at that time. It was important for the Children of Israel to recognize a Prophet when they saw one, considering the amount of Prophets Allah/God had decreed to be sent among them. However, we Muslims, being the final community raised be God, have no need to do so, as our Prophet is the Seal of the Prophets, God bless Him and greet Him with peace.
There are an abundant of Prophecies in the Qur'an, most dealing with immediate events that occurred during our Prophet's, God bless Him and greet Him with peace, worldly life-time. These include the Conquest of Persia by the Byzantines (Chapter 30 of the Qur'an) - in summary, during the rule of Emperor Heraclius, the Persians had practically destroyed the Byzantine Empire, and the whole world was expecting its imminent collapse. Yet Allah spoke through the Beloved Prophet, God bless Him and greet Him with peace, that the Byzantines (Ar-Rum, for which the Chapter 30 is named) would come back and defeat the Persians, within a span of 3-9 years.
Alif, Lam, Meem.
The Byzantines have been defeated
In the nearest land. But they, after their defeat, will overcome.
Within three to nine years. To Allah belongs the command before and after. And that day the believers will rejoice.
In the victory of Allah. He gives victory to whom He wills, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
[It is] the promise of Allah. Allah does not fail in His promise, but most of the people do not know. [Qur'an 30:1-6]
The polytheists of Makkah (and practically anyone living at that time, except the Believers) found the Prophecy unbelievable, and as they were polytheists, sided with the polytheist Persians. The Muslims, being Monotheists, sided with the Christian Byzantines. Yet history bears witness that - within exactly the time-frame mentioned - the Byzantines regained all of their lost territory within a span of 3-9 years. The polytheists of Makkah were stupefied, while the believers rejoiced at the truth of the prophecy of the Seal of the Prophets, God bless Him and greet Him in peace, and the victory of their Abrahamic brethren.
627 - 622 = 5 = "within three to nine years" - the Arabic word, used in the Qur'an, is bid‘, which usually means "between three and nine or ten years" [Tafsir al-Jalalayn], as is translated as "within three to nine years" in the English translation above.Originally Posted by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byzantine–Sassanid_War_of_602–628
This is just one example, the Conquest of Makkah by the Muslims (in Chapter 48) is another; it was also prophesied, and came to take place, exactly as was revealed: Certainly has Allah showed to His Messenger the vision in truth. You will surely enter al-Masjid al-Haram, if Allah wills, in safety, with your heads shaved and [hair] shortened, not fearing [anyone]. He knew what you did not know and has arranged before that a conquest near [at hand]." [Qur'an 48:27]
I believe within two years of the above prophecy, the Muslims conquered Makkah, without any war ("in safety"). All of polytheist Makkah surrendered without putting up a fight, intimidated by the raw strength of the Muslim army (there was a period of peace before this during which many people who came into contact with Islam accepted it as the truth, so the Muslim population skyrocketed). Then, inspired by the tremendousness and vastness of the Prophetic Ethos, they all ultimately surrendered, this time to God and His Messenger, and became Muslims. This was because God's Messenger, God bless Him and greet Him in peace, although He could have taken revenge for all the persecutions that He and His Community had suffered for His earlier 13 years in Makkah; all His Blessed Relatives, Friends and Companions that He had lost because of the wars with these pagans during His later 10 years in Madinah; yet, He announced a general amnesty, and forgave everyone. In the end, it was the Beauty, in Ethos and Appearance, of the Messenger of God, God bless Him and greet Him in peace, that caused Islam to overtake all Arabia.
Islamic tradition is rich with extra-Qur'anic prophecies. The Hadith literature is full of prophecies which have come true; particularly those of the End Times. The Sayings and Teachings of the Prophet, God bless Him and greet Him in peace are called Hadiths, or Traditions, which are distinct from the Qur'an as the Qur'an is the literal Word of God - God Himself speaking - while the Hadiths are what the Prophet, God bless Him and greet Him in peace, spoke and taught upon the will of God. These are regarded as a non-recited revelation. Allah Most High says, ‘He does not speak out of (His own) desire. It is but revelation revealed (to Him).’ [53:3-4] These are rich with End Time prophecies most of which have come true.
I recommend you to read this detailed article:
The Truth of Islam, the Qur'an and the Prophet Muhammad, God bless Him and greet Him in peace (Sall-Allahu 'alayHi wa Sallam): SeekersGuidance - The Truth of Islam, the Qur’an, & the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) - Answers
Plus, that website, Seekers Guidance, is a good source for obtaining authentic Islamic information. You can ask questions there and expect an answer (usually within a week), from authentic Islamic scholars adhering to the Mainstream Islamic beliefs (Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Ja'amah - meaning "the People of the Prophetic Example, and the Largest Group of Muslims" - or Sunnis for short). I personally found them to be competent and qualified. So if you have further questions like this, I recommend that you ask them.
And Allah and His Messenger, God bless Him and greet Him with peace, know best.
