Prophets of Islam outside the Quran
|In Stories of the Prophets|
|In Islamic tradition|
|In Quranic exegesis|
These are prophets mentioned in Stories of the Prophets, Quranic commentary and exegesis, the Hadith and other Islamic literature; none are mentioned by name in the Quran. Muslims believe that many prophets were sent by God, with twenty-five named in the Quran and the figures above identified in exegesis. Italics indicate that the figure's status as a prophet is not accepted by all Muslims.
