In the Islamic world, we can learn a lot about the origins of human history starting with the prophet Adam. Even though in its history there have been thousands of prophets, what we must know are 25 prophets and apostles who brought the message.
So far, we have often known about the story of the 25 prophets from birth and about how to spread the teachings of Allah SWT. But there are a few things that sometimes escape our attention.
If we only know about the prophet Muhammad, who was 63 years old when he died, what about the other prophets, some of whom are almost 1000 years old.
This is the age of 25 Prophets when they died
1. Prophet Adam AS died at the age of 930 years.
2. Prophet Idris AS died at the age of 82 years.
3. Prophet Noah AS died at the age of 950 years.
4. Prophet Hud AS died at the age of 472 years.
5. Prophet Sholeh AS died at the age of 180 years.
6. Prophet Ibrahim AS died at the age of 175 years.
7. Prophet Lut AS died at the age of X years (there is no record of the age of Prophet Lut AS).
8. Prophet Ismail AS died at the age of 137 years.
9. Prophet Isaac died at the age of 170 years.
10. Prophet Ya’kub AS died at the age of 147 years.
11. Prophet Yusuf AS died at the age of 110 years.
12. Prophet Ayub AS died at the age of 93 years.
13. Prophet Shu’aib AS died at the age of 110 years.
14. Prophet Musa AS died at the age of 120 years.
15. Prophet Harun AS died at the age of 123 years.
16. Prophet Dzulkifli AS died at the age of 75 years.
17. Prophet David AS died at the age of 100 years.
18. Prophet Sulaiman AS died at the age of 52 years.
19. Prophet Ilyas AS died at the age of X years (there is no record of the age of Prophet Ilyas AS).
20. Prophet Ilyasa ‘AS died at the age of X years ( there is no record of the age of Prophet Ilyasa ‘ AS ).
21. Prophet Yunus AS died at the age of 110 years.
22. Prophet Zakaria AS died at the age of 300 years.
23. Prophet Yahya AS died at the age of 95 years.
24. Prophet Jesus AS was alive. In Islam the prophet Isa was not crucified but was raised to Heaven and will descend to earth at the end of time
25. Prophet Muhammad PBUH died at the age of 63 years.
Indeed, there are some differences of opinion about how old the 25 prophets of Allah actually live in the world, such as between Prophet Isa and Prophet Yahya, some say that Prophet Yahya and Prophet Isa were born only months apart and in the same year but Prophet Yahya died first and after a few months from the death of Prophet Yahya, Prophet Isa also died. But these differences do not necessarily make our belief in the 25 prophets disappear.
And from that list, Prophet Isa was recorded as the youngest in the world at 33 years old, but when viewed from the age classification, Prophet Idris was the very young at the time of his death, which was 82 years old, while his father, Prophet Adam, was up to 930 years old, while the prophet after him was a prophet. Noah reached 950 years.
Noah himself is the ninth descendant of the prophet Adam. His father’s name was Lamik (Lamaka) bin Mutawasylah (Matu Salij) bin Idris bin Yarid bin Mahlail bin Qainan bin Anusyi bin Syits bin Adam. Between Adam and Noah there is a span of 10 generations and over a period of approximately 1642 years.
