وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلاً مِنْ قَبْلِكَ مِنْهُمْ مَنْ قَصَصْنَا عَلَيْكَ وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ لَمْ نَقْصُصْ عَلَيْكَ
That is, “We sent messengers before you, of them we have related to you, and others we have not related to you.” (Al-Mu’min: 78).
In the Qur’an, the name of the Prophet with his narration is 25 each. That is what must be trusted with certainty. Introducing 25 names of prophets and apostles to children can be done early on, because one of the pillars of faith is faith in the prophet and apostle.
