Prophets in Islam (Arabic: ٱلْأَنۢبِيَاءُ فِي ٱلْإِسْلَام, romanized: al-ʾAnbiyāʾ fī al-ʾIslām) are individuals who Muslims believe were sent by God to various communities in order to serve as examples of ideal human behavior and to spread God’s message on Earth. Some prophets are categorized as messengers (Arabic: رُسُل, romanized: rusul, sing. رَسُول rasūl), those who transmit divine revelation through the intercession of an angel. Muslims believe that many prophets existed, including many not mentioned in the Quran. The Quran states: “There is a Messenger for every community”. Belief in the Islamic prophets is one of the six articles of the Islamic faith.
