As'Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,
 
That was not a tricky question sister. I did not have the difference of prophet / messenger in my mind. JazakiAllah for the correction.
 
Sis Sakeenah, its not fair, You did not answer. Confused
 
One messenger which we missed is "Hud" AS.
 
Next question
 
What is the difference between a messenger and Prophet of Allah ? Smile
 
 
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “All the descendants of Adam are sinners, and the best of sinners are those who repent."

As-salaam alaykum Warahamatullah Wabarakatuh
 
My very simple offhanded answer (sorry,you know I like to take the shorter route)...........naughty meTongue
Ok,Prophets were sent to their own clan/people alone&without a Book,
while Messengers were sent with a Book....like Injil,Torah,Zaburr&Al-Qur'an etc....Stern%20Smile

As Salamu Alaikum

Sori I have being so busy these past few weeks and had no time to come to IC

Seems like we have a bit of a confusion here regarding Nabi (Prophets) and Rasul (Messenger)

This is a brief explanation:

Nabi – one who brings news or information. – A Prophet – he informs us about Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and conveys to us His Orders and revelations. He is inspired to follow the Shariah of the prophets who preceded him. Eg. The prophets from after Musa (Alayhi Salam) to Isa (Alayhi Salam) were sent to apply the Shariah of Musa (Alayhi Salam)

 

Rasul –Messenger they were directed by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala – he either brought a new Shariah or confirmed/abrogated some of the laws of a previous Messenger.

 

All Messengers are Prophets but not all prophets are messengers.

 

Insha Allah I will try and get some more information on this.

 

Sister Chrysalis I am not familiar with the site you mentioned but  from the information you provided I don’t think you should go to that site.

 

Salams

“Verily your Lord is quick in punishment; yet He is indeed Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful (Surah Al-An’am 6:165)
"Indeed, we belong to Allah and to Him is our return" (Surah Baqarah 2: 155)

Wa'alaikumsalam Sis Alwardah.
 
Jazakallah for pointing that out . . . I did feel slightly hesitant abt that site - hence I posted the link from where I got the info - cz they said smthing abt certain Prophets biengs superior over others etc. . .
 
I must admit, I've always mixed the two up (prophets n nabi) - which is why, come to think of it - both my posts say completely contradictory things!
 
PS: I am editing the wrong bit of info I posted . . .

As Salamu Alaikum

Don’t worry to much about it,we all make mistakes and are learning from each other.Smile

Here is a nice fatawa to explain the difference between Prophets and Messengers

http://fatwaislam.com/fis/index.cfm?scn=fd&ID=181

Let’s recap the last question – the Surah named after Prophets:

Surah Yunus 10

Surah Hud 11

Surah Yusuf 12

Surah Ibrahim 14

Surah Muhammad 47

Wa Alaikum Salam

“Verily your Lord is quick in punishment; yet He is indeed Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful (Surah Al-An’am 6:165)
