Muslims believe that just as scriptures have been revealed over the centuries, God has also appointed prophets who were teachers, messengers and great people, to help guide human beings and to interpret and show Gods teachings in real life. Muslims believe that many prophets came to human societies throughout history, we only know some of their names, and others have been forgotten.

Many of the figures of the Bible, such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joseph, and others are regarded as prophets by Muslims. They all came from God and brought essentially the same message – to believe in God and to lead good lives. Muhammad is regarded by Muslims to be the last in the line of prophets.
