Notes :

  1. Scholars have different opinions concerning Adam : some attest that he is a Prophet other not.

  2. I grouped the names according to their roots : Muhammad and Ahmad (puh) have the same root and are grouped toghether: whereas Dhu Nun, i.e Jonah have different ones.

  3. 27 Prophets names which their total is multiple of 19 and 27 !!!

  4. In fact there are 26 Prophets ( Jonah and Dhu Nun are one) : now, the total sum of the first 19 Prophets ( till Muhammad puh) is multiple of 19 and 26 !!!

  5. Allah is One and loves odd numbers and above all Prime numbers. If you accept the theory of Dr.Plichta who considers the number 1 as prime number whereas 2 and 3 not , then this part is for you :
