23 or 24 Prophets?
« on: June 22, 2017, 09:34:49 PM »
Salam All ,

I was wondering how maistream Islam is counting the prophets and messengers and came to the number 25 although it is 23 as it came out by my counting.

But i am not sure if this is correct as one Prophet is twice with different names.Who am i talking about ?

Its Prophet Jakob aka (Prophet?)Israel.

In Sura 6:83-89 alot of prophets and messengers are Mentioned also jakob who later was given the Name Israel by god according to the scrpts.
All the food was made lawful to the Children of Israel except what Israel forbade for himself before the Torah was sent down. Say: 'Bring the Torah and recite it if you are truthful.' sura 3:93

Please kindly share your views.
