God has blessed humans with a number of supreme qualities to lead them to the truth.
However, He has also further helped them by appointing guides from among them with exceptional, God-given traits. Among those guides, the ones who received divine revelation are known as prophets.
The prophets are righteous individuals, who have set an example for the rest of humankind and who were given three main duties:
1. To convey the revelations of God,
2. To cleanse and purify souls,
3. And to teach people the book and wisdom.
Sending prophets is our Lord’s special way of helping humanity and this help started with Prophet Adam (AS) in order to encompass the entire history of man.
Adam (AS) was not only the first man but also the first prophet. Around 124,000 prophets have since walked on and cemented the cobbles of that sacred path to salvation. Although the core of the message they delivered remained unchanged, parallel to the progress of humanity, the path reached its summit and perfection in Prophet Muhammed (SAW).
We have humbly relied on the help of Allah to write this book, which offers the parables of the prophets as told by the Qur’an. It begins with the first leaf of the prophetic calendar and ends with the last, laying emphasis on the lessons and wisdom to be taken from their experiences.
Here, our readers will find the story and events during the life of all Prophets Peace upon them – except the blessed time of Prophet Muhammed Peace and Blessings upon him which is relate in a special book totally dedicated to his life.
