Allah’s first creation. All the angels bowed down to Adam, except Iblis (Satan). The Fall applies to Adam in the Islamic tradition, just as it does in the Christian.

Ibrahim (Abraham)

The father of the Arab nations. His near sacrifice of Isma’il (NOT Isaac-as in the Jewish tradition) shows his devotion to Allah. He is a ‘friend’ of Allah (Surah 4).

Musa (Moses)

Communication between Allah and human beings through books, angels etc:

The story of Moses is very similar to the one in the Jewish tradition. Moses is also given the Tawrat (Torah) and it is he who negotiates for only five times of prayer per day.

Isa (Jesus)

Communication between Allah and human beings through books, angels etc:

Sunni Muslims believe Isa is the Messiah who will return on Judgement Day-but no Muslim believes Isa to be divine. Nor do they believe he died on the cross.
