In the beginning, but not before:
Greeting the Prophets
In the heavens, by the number:
2) Muhammad saw the two cousins, Prophet John (known in Christian traditions as the Baptist) and the Messenger of God, Prophet Jesus
4) Idris (Enoch)
Are these 8 the only recognized prophets of Islam?
(prior to Muhammad who would make it 9 in number, and goes further to Paradise)
Can we assume that the number identifies their relative rank? Or should we presume that some prophets & dignitaries were ... unavailable to meet.
