Prophets and Saints


Assalamu Alaykum,

Like saints can there be more than one prophet at the same time. Please pray for me I am going through very very hard times.



Waalaykumussalam warahmatullah,

May Allah grant you relief from all duress and confirm your reward for your steadfastness and patience. With every difficulty there are two reliefs so keep patient and trust in Allah.

There were, in the past, Prophets that lived in dunya contemporaneously with one another such as Adam and Shith, Ibrahim and his two sons, Yaqub and Yusuf, Zakariyya, Yahya and `Isa, upon our Prophet and upon them blessings and peace. But these are Ummas that are past and gone, and such will never happen again, as the Seal of Prophets was never and is never to be matched with any other Prophet at the same time as his. Furthermore, when we say that there are 124,000 Awliya “just like” there are 124,000 Prophets, it is not meant in absolute terms and does not refer to contemporaneity.
