In Islam, Nubuwwah (Arabic: نبوة‎) means "Prophethood" and denotes that God has appointed perfect Prophets and Messengers to teach humanity God's religion.[1] Nubuwwah is among the five Shi'a Roots of Religion.

Muslims believe that the prophets and messengers (Adam being the first prophet and Muhammad the last)are appointed by Allah.
