Why Would The Quran Mention All OF These Prophets?
I can understand why atheists do not believe in Quran. They think all the ideas of religions are hoax. In other places in my blog I debated them. The thing I could not understand why still many Christians and Jews do not believe in the Quran. There is no compulsion in religion. However why Muhammad (PBUH) would mention all these prophets of the old and new testaments if Quran was not from God. Why he would mention himself only 4 times. Who in human history brought a book like the Quran and mentioned all of these prophets like did the Bible. If I would say today I am a prophet people will put me under the microscope, they will investigate my family and people who knew me to see if I am a liar or crazy. They will likely dig in my life to find things against me. People will look to me with great suspicion unless I can dramatically convince them. The responsibility lies in people in the top of the religions to do their homework since they are the one who will answer to God in the day of judgement. Quran 3:70 O followers of earlier revelation! Why do you deny the truth of God's messages to which you yourselves bear witness?Table: includes: Number, Name of the messenger and Number of occurrence in the Quran:1 Moses 1362 Abraham 693 Noah 434 Lot 275 Joseph 276 Adam 257 Jesus 258 Aaron 209 Isaac 1710 Solomon 1711 Jacob 1612 David 1613 Ismail 1214 Shuaib 1115 Saaleh 916 Hood 717 Zachariah 718 John 519 Muhammad 420 Job 421 Jonah 422 Elias 323 Idris 224 Zalkifl 225 Elisha 226 Luqmaan 227 Ezra 1Table is copied from http://www.quranmiracles.com/
