I have another question as I am reading and studying.  I read this tonight;
"Egypt
 Muslims and Jews involved in common devotions, such as visiting the grave of Ezekiel, whom both religions regard as a prophet."
Muslims do regard Ezekiel as a prophet?

Yes, All the prophets mentioned in the Bible are prophets of God and Muslims believe in them.
 
Ezekiel is not mentioned by name in the Holy Qur'an but the following verse tells us that ALL prophets of God are revered.
 
Sahih International
Say, [O believers], "We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him." 2:136

If I am not mistaken in Judaism Sulayman is not regarded as a Prophet, but you need to verify it yourself.

Ezekiel 2 ;And he said to me, "Son of man, I send you to the people of Israel, to a nation of rebels, who have rebelled against me; they and their fathers have transgressed against me to this very day. 4 The people also are impudent and stubborn: I send you to them; and you shall say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD.' 5 And whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house) they will know that there has been a prophet among them. 6 And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, nor be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you and you sit upon scorpions; be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house.

You know that the Bible has been damaged by anonymous writers the original torah does not exist.This is the reason you will have to look to the Quraan which is unchanged.

Caringheart,
all of God's prophets since Adam are part of the same belief, Al-Islam. Not all are mentioned by name in the Quran. Even though, this is not such an important mater whether Ezekiel is mentioned in the Quran or not, it cannot be ruled out that he is.
Please read this from the Wikipedia:
"Islamic tradition
Main article: Dhul-Kifl
Ezekiel is recognized as a prophet in Islamic tradition. Although not mentioned in the Qur'an by the name, all Muslim scholars, both classical[11] and modern[12] have included Ezekiel in the prophetic pantheon.
The Qur'an mentions a prophet called Zul-Kifl. This prophet is sometimes identified with Ezekiel although Zul-Kifl's identity is disputed. Carsten Niebuhr, in his Reisebeschreibung nach Arabian,[13] says he visited Al Kifl in Iraq, midway between Najaf and Hilla and said Kifl was the Arabic form of Ezekiel. He further explained in his book that Ezekiel's Tomb was present in Al Kifl and that the Jews came to it on pilgrimage. The name Zul-Kifl would mean "One of double", as Kifl in Arabic means "double". Some Islamic scholars have likened Ezekiel's mission to the description of Dhul-Kifl. When the exile, monarchy, and state were annihilated, a political and national life was no longer possible. In the absence of a worldly foundation it became necessary to build a spiritual one and Ezekiel performed this mission by observing the signs of the time and deducing his doctrines from them. In conformity with the two parts of his book, his personality and his preaching are alike twofold, and the title Zul-Kifl means "the one of double" Aside from the possible identification of Zul-Kifl with Ezekiel, Muslims have viewed Ezekiel as a prophet, regardless of his identification with Zul-Kifl. Therefore, two main views on Ezekiel are popular in Muslim theology:
One views Ezekiel and Zul-Kifl as two different prophets.
One views Ezekiel and Zul-Kifl as the same prophet.
Ezekiel appears in all Muslim collections of Stories of the Prophets.[14] Muslim exegesis further lists Ezekiel's father as Buzi (Budhi) and Ezekiel is given the title ibn al-adjus, denoting "son of the old", as his parents are supposed to have been very old when he was born. A tradition, which resembles that of Hannah and Samuel in the Hebrew Bible, states that Ezekiel's mother prayed to God in old age for the birth of an offspring and was given Ezekiel as a gift from God.[15]"
