We all know that ALLAH sent the man on the earth as his vicegerent. ALLAH clearly said that those who adopted the right path will be rewarded with Jannah while those who will disobey me will be sent to Hell where they will be punished with the fire. ALLAH sent His messengers to deliver His messages to the humankind.
There were about 124000 messengers were sent from ALLAH Almighty to bring the people on right track. As a Muslim, we believe that all the messenger of ALLAH were on the right track. They all were free from sins. They delivered the message of ALLAH without any alteration. It should also be kept in mind that all the messengers of ALLAH were sent among common people as they were also a normal human being. They had families and they lived among common people. A significant point in their teaching is that all the messengers of ALLAH delivered the message in the language which was commonly spoken in their nations. All the prophets faced the difficulties while spreading the messages of ALLAH Almighty while some of the messengers were killed in the way of ALLAH.
As a Muslim, we have a belief that all the messengers sent by ALLAH were on the right track as believing in them is part of our faith. ALLAH Always helped his messengers and people who were the companion of them and also punished them who didn’t obey the messengers of ALLAH Almighty. The Holy Quran says that
“So the earthquake seized them (Samud), and they lay (dead), prostrate in their home.”
All the messengers of ALLAH passed basically one message that there is only one God that is ALLAH Almighty who is the creator of this universe. He is one and no one can be equal to Him and nobody can share his authority and power.
Hazrat Adam was the first messenger of ALLAH and our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was the last messenger sent by the ALLAH Almighty. Between them, there were many other messengers and some of them were given the divine books like Hazrat Musa was given the Testament, Hazrat Isa was given the Bible and Hazrat Daud was given the Psalm and our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was given the Holy Quran. Some of the messengers acted upon the teachings and principles of their previous messengers.
When our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) came in this world, ALLAH Almighty stopped sending messengers and declared our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) as last of his messenger. It is said in the Holy Quran that “But he is the Messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets”. Now the message sent by the ALLAH has been stopped and Quran is the last book available for the guidance of humankind as all previous books have been altered but the Holy Quran has been made free from all types of alterations. It is ALLAH Almighty who sent the Holy Quran and He is the guardian of it.
