Belief in the Prophets of Allah
Since the beginning of the earth, Almighty Allah sent guidance to people through His special and chosen servants. These special and chosen servants are called "Ambiya" or Prophets.
The Ambiya of Almighty Allah are all "Masoom" or "sinless." This means that they have always been protected by Almighty Allah and they have never committed any sin.
The message that all the Ambiya of Almighty Allah used to teach was that "There is no god but Almighty Allah." They also commanded the people to "do good and keep away from evil."
Why has Almighty Allah sent Ambiya?
Ambiya have been sent to tell us about the future and to teach us the "Siraatul Mustaqeem" or "The Straight Path."
Do we need guidance from Almighty Allah?
Yes, because we are weak and have no knowledge about the future.
Almighty Allah has sent His Ambiya to every nation on earth at different times. They were sent to teach us about Almighty Allah and how to worship Him and nobody else.
According to our Nabi Muhammad approximately 124 000 Ambiya came to the world. The Holy Quran mentions the names of 25 of the most famous Ambiya, which are:
As Muslims, we must believe in and respect all the Ambiya of Almighty Allah.
Our Nabi Muhammad is the last Prophet of Almighty Allah. He is "Habeebullah" or the most beloved creation of Almighty Allah.
The first Nabi sent to this world was Sayyiduna Adam (alayhis salaam).
Whenever we take the name of any Nabi or Angel, we must always say or write in full: "ALAYHIS SALAAM" which means "Upon him be Peace."
After the name of our Nabi Muhammad we must always say or write in full: "SALLAL LAAHU ALAIHI WASALLAM" which means "Peace and Blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him."
We, as Muslims, are the "Ummah" or "Followers" of our Nabi Muhammad
Almighty Allah also calls our Nabi Muhammad "Rahmatull Lil Aalameen". That means that our Nabi Muhammad is a Mercy for all people, creatures, and things in the world.
