In this week's Friday prayer that I attended at a new mosque, the speaker told a story of a Prophet was praying and the angel of death came to him and told him he is there to take his spirit. The Prophet cried and the angel asked him the reason to witch he said he won't be able to pray when everyone else would be praying (His death prayer). God told the angel to not take his spirit and he would remain alive till the day of judgement (or maybe his spirit I couldn't understand clearly). My question is this really be possible because I heard from many sources that every human being has to die?


Doing search on Google I found out he might be talking about Hazrat Khizr.

  • Verse legacy.quran.com/33/40 should answer your question! al-Khizr is not a Prophet. – Medi1Saif Nov 2 '16 at 7:32
  • @Medi1Saif: Thanks. What about him beling alive? – user46 Nov 2 '16 at 7:40
  • That's a claim I heard of -it's hard to believe- but Allah knows best! – Medi1Saif Nov 2 '16 at 8:10

Every prophet is a human being just like me and you but were given the power to perform miracles by the will of God ( by gods permission) . God says in the Quran "Every soul shall taste death" therefore every human being including the prophets will die eventually. Now coming to your question "Is there any prophet who is alive ? " the answer is no there are no prophets who are alive currently in the world today as prophet Muhammed (pbuh) was the last and final messenger.

all the prophets have passed away as Mohammed (peace be upon him) was the last and final prophet. however isa (as) will be resserected to kill dajjal and after doing so will die like the rest of the humans that will witness the final hours of this dunya.
