The main question is already in the headline but I'll repeat it here: Is the tradition that there was 124,000 prophets (before Muhammed pbuh) attested in the Qu'ran or the Hadith? Also, are these to every people or to one specific people?

  • Your second question doesn't seem to make sense as we know from the Qur'an that many if not most prophets and messengers where sent to specific people and tribes. – Medi1Saif Mar 8 '18 at 10:35

The Hadith mentions 124,000 prophets, most of them not mentioned by name. The Quran mentions 25 prophets by name
