of Allah (Messengers)
Muslims believe in all Rusul
(Messengers) that Allah
(God) had sent for the guidance of
mankind. These Rusul (Messenger)
were sent to different places at different times. All of
these Rusul (Messenger) had
brought the same Message of Allah (God).
Each Rasul (Messenger)
faithfully delivered the Message of Allah (God)
to his people and presented a perfect way of life as example.
These Rusul (Messengers) invited
people to the path of Allah (God).
People altered and modified the Messages of Allah
(God) for their own benefits. Whenever
it happened Allah (God)
sent His Message over through another Rasul
All Rusul (Messengers)
of Allah (God) performed
the same job of delivering Messages of Allah (God)
to mankind. Muslims respect all Rusul (Messengers)
of Allah (God) equally.

better or superior than others. Muslims also believe
that all Rusul (Messengers)
were normal human beings, who were picked-up by Allah
(God) at various ages of their lives

with a new Message, when His previous Message was changed,
modified, altered, corrupted or edited.
