He spent a large part of his life away from his eleven brothers, who showed jealousy of Yusuf because their father favoured him. They took him out one day, telling their father that they would play and have fun, but they planned to kill him.

12. Jethro – Shu’ayb – شعيب Mentioned 11 Times – Messenger – According to Islam, God appointed Shu’ayb, a direct descendant of Ibrahim, to guide the people of Midian and Aykah, who lived near Mount Sinai. When the people of the region failed to listen to his warnings, God destroyed the disbelievers’ villages. Although the Qur’an and the reported speeches of Muhammad mention that Musa married one of Shu’ayb’s daughters, the Old Testament tells the same story of a man named Jethro. Some scholars[ regard Jethro in the Old Testament as distinct from Shu'aib in the Qur'an.

13.Moses – Musa – موسى Mentioned 136 Times – Prophet & Messenger - Moses, whom the Qur'an refers to more than to any other Prophet, had the distinction of revealing the Tawrat (Torah) to the Israelites. The Qur'an says Musa realized his connection with God after receiving commands from him during a stop at Mount Sinai. He later went on to free the enslaved Hebrews after the Egyptian pharaoh denied God's power. Musa subsequently led the freed Hebrews for forty years through the desert after they refused to obey God's command and enter the Holy Land. See the Qur'an, Sura Al-Ma'ida Qur'an 5:24, "They said: 'O Moses! while they remain there, never shall we be able to enter, to the end of time. Go thou, and thy Lord, and fight ye two, while we sit here (and watch).'" On another trip to Mount Sinai during this long journey, Musa received the Tawrat and the Ten Commandments. At the end of his life, according to Islamic tradition[ Musa chose to die to become closer to God instead of taking up an offer that would have extended his life.

14. Aaron – Harun – هارونMentioned 20 Times – Prophet & Messenger - Harun (Aaron) served as an assistant to his older brother Musa (Moses). In Islam, he, like Musa, received the task of saving the Israelites from the Egyptian pharaoh. He would often speak for Musa when Musa’s speech-impediment prevented him from doing so himself.

15 Elijah – Ilyaas – إلياسMentioned 02 Times – Prophet - Ilyas, a descendant of Harun (Aaron), took over control of the southern part of the Arabian Peninsula after the kingdom of Sulayman (Solomon) collapsed.

16. Elisha – Al-Yasaa – اليسع Mentioned 02 Times – Prophet - Al-Yasa (Elisha) took over the task of leading the Israelites after the death of Ilyas (Elijah). He attempted to show the king and queen of Israel the power of God, but they dismissed him as a magician. Subsequently, the Assyrians could make people burn[and inflict significant damage on them.

17. David – Daud – داوود Mentioned 16 Times – Prophet - In Islam, God revealed the Zabur (Psalms) to Dawud (David). Dawud also has significance as the conqueror of Goliath. Note that Islamic tradition and the Bible differ in their accounts of the story of King David and Uriah

18. Solomon – Suleiman – سليمان Mentioned 17 Times – Prophet - Sulayman (Solomon) learned a significant amount from his father David before God made him a Prophet. According to Islamic traditions, Sulayman received power to manipulate nature (including the Jinn) and the power to communicate with and control animals. Known for his honesty and fairness, he also headed a kingdom that extended into southern Arabia.

19.Job – Ayub – أيوب Mentioned 04 Times – Prophet - According to Islamic tradition, Ayyub received the reward of a fountain of youth, which removed all illnesses, except death, for his service to God in his hometown outside Al Majdal. Legend recounts that Ayyub suffered an illness for 18 years as test of patience carried out by God.

20.Issaiah – Most Likely Ezekiel – Dhul-Kifl- ذا الكفلProphet – Mentioned 02 Times - The status of Dhul-Kifl as a Prophet remains debatable within Islam, although all parties to the debate can agree[ in seeing him as a righteous man who strived in the way of God. Some studies identify Dhul-Kifl with Obadiah, mentioned in the Old Testament as taking care of a hundred prophets:

21. Jonah – Yunus - يونس/ ذا النون Mentioned 04 Times – Prophet & Messenger - Islamic tradition states that God commanded Yunus (Jonah) to help the people of Nineveh towards righteousness. However, Nineveh's people refused to listen to his message, so Yunus decides to abandon trying to help them and leaves. A sea creature (probably a blue whale) then swallows Yunus, and realizing he has made a mistake by giving up on his people, Yunus repents. The sea creature spits him out; Yunus then returns to Nineveh, attempting once more to lead his people to righteousness, and this time they follow him.

22. Zacharias – Zakariya – زكريا Mentioned 07 Times – Prophet - A descendant of Sulayman, Zakariya (Zachariah), became a patron of Maryam (Mary) the mother of 'Isa (Jesus). According to the Qur'an, he prayed to God asking for a son, since his sterile wife al-Yashbi (Elizabeth) could not provide one. God granted his wishes, temporarily lifting his wife's sterility and allowing her to give birth to Yahya ibn Zakariyya (John).

23 .John (The Baptist) – Yahya – يحيى Mentioned 05 Times – Prophet - Yahya (John), cousin to Issa (Jesus), Islam says that, throughout his lifetime, he captivated audiences with his powerful sermons which preached Abrahamic monotheism.

24.Jesus – Issa – عيسى Mentioned 25 Times – Prophet & Messenger - God sent one of the highest-ranked prophets in Islam, Eisa al-Maseeh, (Jesus the Messiah) to guide the Children of Israel. The Qur'an makes the nature of Jesus very clear, portraying him not as the physically begotten son of God, but rather as a nabi and rasul (Messenger) of God: "O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an Prophet Apostle of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His apostles. Say not "Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah. Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs." (Nisa 4:171) in Yusuf Ali's translation.[65]

‘Isa performed many miracles with the permission of God, for example: raising the dead, creating a bird from clay, and talking as an infant. Islamic traditions[state that he abstained from drinking alcohol. Tradition also states that he received a revelation, the Injil (Gospel), though according to Islam, it subsequently suffered from distortion[. Muslims believe that no crucifixion of ‘Isa took place, meaning he did not die on the cross. Muslims believe that God raised Issa Jesus up to himself and that Issa (Jesus) will return to Earth to fight the Dajjal (the Imposter) and to break the cross. The Qur’an and Saheeh Hadith tell a consistent story.

That they (Jews) said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-

 Issa, was the miracle birth son of Virgin Mother Mary (Miriam). Islam – after Christianity – is the only Religion that believes in The miracle birth of Jesus (Issa).

Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise;-

And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them;-

—Qur’an, Sura An-Nisa 4:157–159

From Hadith:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, son of Mary (Jesus) will shortly descend amongst you people (Muslims) as a just ruler and will break the Cross and kill the pig and abolish the Jizya (a tax taken from the non-Muslims, who are in the protection, of the Muslim government).

Then there will be abundance of money and no-body will accept charitable gifts.To know more about Prophet Issa.

25 .Jews and Christians do not recognise Nabii Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). محمدProphet & Messenger – Mentioned all over The Holy Quraan..

Video:Prophet Muhammad and other religions
Habib u’l A’zam, Imam u’l Anbiya Sayyidina Muhammad ibn ‘Abdullah, (53 B.H.-11 A.H.; 571-632 AD) ranks as the last Prophet in Islam (“seal of the Prophets“), with a message to all humanity.

 Muslims shun idolatry of any of the prophets, as their messages from God hold the most weight. Muhammad appeared on earth as the son of his father ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib and of his mother Amina bint Wahb az-Zuhriyya.

Born in Mecca in 571 AD (53 AH), Muhammad spent the first part of his mature years as a well-travelled merchant. He would often spend time in the mountains surrounding Mecca in prayer contemplating the situation within the city. At the age of forty, during one of those trips to the mountain, Muhammad began to receive and recite verses from God which, in recorded form, make up the Qur’an. He quickly spread the message which he received, converting a few others in the city, including his wife.

When oppression became intolerable for his followers, Muhammad first asked his fellow Muslims to move to Medina, and later he himself migrated to Medina away from the oppressors in Mecca. Muhammad served not just as a prophet, but as a military leader who helped defeat the Meccans in 624 during the Battle of Badr. He continued to lead the Muslims as Islam spread across the Arabian Peninsula. He performed the first Hajj in 629 and established Islam in the form that Muslims still practise it.

Others continued Muhammad’s legacy after his death in 632, accepting the position of caliph (“successor”) to Muhammad. The Five Pillars of Islam were established[from Muhammad’s hadith after his death
