How many prophets are there in islam?

There are a total of 25 prophets in Islam that are mentioned in the Quran. The first Prophet that Allah chose was also the first man; Adam (as). The last prophet that Allah sent was Prophet Muhmmad (pbuh). According to a few weak hadith, there were thousands of Prophets that Allah sent to mankind (Allah knows best). 

The Prophets were sent by Allah to guide and teach people to worship Allah. They taught people to stay away from evil and to do good deeds. They were the best of people and had incredible akhlaaq (good character) and an unshakeable and firm faith in Allah.

Here at Primary ilm have created a 25 prophets poster which can be downloaded for free right here.
