Moslimdaily – The Quran consists of 114 letters that contain and messages full of meaning. Each of the letters in the Quran has unique names. Some of them are taken from the names of prophets and apostles.
Well, here are the prophets and apostles whose names were taken into the name of the letter in the Quran:
1. Chapter Muhammad in The Quran
The name of the prophet Muhammad became the name of the 47th letter in the Quran, namely QS Muhammad. It is a Madaniyah letter or letter descended in Medina and consists of 38 verses. As the name suggests, this letter contains the story of the life and struggle of the Prophet Muhammad SAW in proselytizing and spreading Islam.
This letter is also called Al-Qital which means War, because most of these letters talk about war and its legal points, as well as how believers should behave towards infidels.
2. Chapter Noah
The name of the prophet Noah became the name of the 71st letter in the Quran, namely Noah. As the name suggests, Noah’s letter also contains many stories about struggles, ways of preaching and prayers that Prophet Noah used to pray for his disobedient people.
This letter that came down in Makkah (Makkiyah), although it only consists of 28 verses, is able to describe quite clearly the actions of the Prophet Noah in spreading the religion of Allah Almighty.
3. Chapter of Ibrahim in the Quran
The name of the prophet Ibrahim became the name of the 14th letter in the Quran, namely QS Ibrahim. This letter consists of 52 verses and is included in the makiyah letter (descending in Makkah). In addition to telling the story of Prophet Ibrahim, this letter also quotes the prayer that Prophet Ibrahim always offered, verses 35-40.
4. Chapter of Joseph
The name of the prophet Yusuf became the name of the 12th letter in the Quran, namely QS Yusuf. In addition to containing the story of the struggle of the beloved son of the Prophet Jacob, the letter handed down in Mecca also contains occult stories revealed to the prophet of the last days, the Prophet Muhammad SAW.
From this story of Yusuf, the Prophet Muhammad took many lessons and was a comfort to him in carrying out his duties.
According to Al Baihaqi’s account in the book of Ad-Dalail that a group of Jews converted to Islam after they heard this story of Yusuf, because it corresponds to the stories they know.
5. Chapter of Jonah in the Quran
The name of the prophet Jonah became the name of the 10th letter in the Quran, namely QS Yunus. This letter includes the Makkiyah letter, except for verses 40, 94 and 95 which were handed down in Medina.
Although named Jonah, the letter, which consists of 109 verses, does not tell much about the story of the prophet Jonah. The longest story in this epistle is that of the Prophet Moses, the House of Israel, and Pharaoh.
The word ‘Jonah’ is even found only in verse 98, which Muslim Scholars say is the most important part of this epistle.
6. Chapter of Hud as
The name of the prophet Hud is the name of the 11th letter in the Quran, namely Al Hud. The letter that was handed down after Jonah’s letter is a makiyah letter. The content of this letter is not only about the story of the struggle of Prophet Hud, but also several other prophets, such as Nih, Shalih, Ibrahim, Luth, Syu’aib, and Moses.
