Image result for allah prophets

The quran states that to every people was sent messengers and apostles and prophets . It is said that 124,000 in all were sent . This is an unbelievable number .For it means that before Muhammad , who is called the last prophet , there were 124,000 people groups in the world , speaking 124,000 different languages , practicing 124,000 different cultures and traditions.Today there is a much greater population on earth  than 1400 years ago and yet not enough people groups  to even come close to that number .

How can one believe such illogical nonsense ?Islam is not a religion proof # 118 .
Proof texts follow :    

SURA 4:163.
We have sent thee Inspiration, as We sent it To Noah and the Messengers After him: We sent Inspiration to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob And the Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, And to David We gave The Psalms.

164. Of some apostles We have Already told thee the story; Of others we have not;— And to Moses God spoke direct;—

165. Apostles who gave good news As well as warning, That mankind, after (the coming) Of the apostles, should have No plea against God: For God is Exalted in Power, Wise.

SURA 7:94
Whenever We sent a prophet To a town, We took up Its people in suffering And adversity, in order
That they might learn humility

SURA 35 :23.
Thou art no other Than a warner.

24. Verily We have sent thee In truth, as a bearer Of glad tidings, And as a warner: And there never was A people, without a warner Having lived among them (In the past).

SURA 40 :78
We did aforetime send Apostles before thee: of them There are some whose story We have related to thee, And some whose story We have not related To thee. It was not (Possible) for any apostle To bring a Sign except By the leave of God: But when the Command Of God issued, The matter was decided In truth and justice, And there perished, There and then, those Who stood on Falsehoods.

SURA 36 :13
Set forth to them, By way of a parable, The (story of) the Companions Of the City. Behold, There came apostles to it. 14. When We (first) sent To them two apostles, They rejected them: But We strengthened them With a third: they said, "Truly, we have been sent On a mission to you."

Number of Prophets

Throughout the history, a large number of prophets were sent to guide human beings. His Eminence, Adam (a.s.) was the first of the divine prophets and The Holy Prophet Muhammad (S) was the last of them. The exact number of prophets is not known, but in some traditions their number is mentioned as 124000.
Some prophets were having special and particular laws and some others were not having special code of laws; on the contrary they promoted the Shariah of the previous prophet. Some of them brought scriptures and some others did not bring any books. Sometimes there were more than one prophet in a single town or city, who fulfilled the duties of prophethood.
It is narrated from Abu Dharr that one day he asked the Messenger of Allah (S): How many prophets are there in all? He replied: One hundred and twenty four thousand. He then asked: How many of them were messenger prophets? He replied: Three hundred thirteen from the above group. He asked: Who was the first of them? He replied: Adam. He asked: Was he a messenger prophet? He replied: Yes, Almighty Allah created him with His own hands and blew His spirit into him. At that moment the Holy Prophet (S) said: O Abu Dharr:
There were four from the Syriac prophets: Adam, Sheeth, and Ukhnuh, who is also called Idris and who was the first to write and Nuh. Four of them were Arabs: Hud, Salih, Shuaib and your prophet, Muhammad. The first prophet among Bani Israel was Musa and the last of them was Isa and they were in all six hundred prophets.
Abu Dharr asked: O Messenger of Allah (S), how many heavenly scriptures descended? He replied: One hundred and four, of which Almighty Allah revealed to Sheeth fifty scrolls, thirty on Idris and twenty on Ibrahim. He also revealed Taurat, Injeel, Zabur and Quran.1
Five great divine prophets brought new sets of laws (Shariah) and they are known as Ulul Azm prophets. They were: Nuh, Ibrahim, Musa, Isa and Muhammad (S).
Ismail Jofi has narrated from Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) that he said:
The Ulul Azm prophets are five in number: Nuh, Ibrahim, Musa, Isa and Muhammad (S).2

We do not have detailed information about the names of all the prophets; in books of history also only some of their names are mentioned. In the Holy Quran, twenty-six of them are mentioned by names: They are: Adam, Nuh, Idris, Hud, Salih, Ibrahim, Lut, Ismail, Al-Yasa, Zulkifl, Ilyas, Ayyub, Yunus, Ishaq, Yaqub, Yusuf, Shuaib, Musa, Harun, Dawood, Sulaiman, Zakariya, Yahya, Ismail the keeper of his word, Isa and Muhammad (S).
