Are there any female prophets in Quran? If yes, could you give me the link to that passage so I can look at it myself.

All of the above are male. There is no female prophets mentioned in Al-Quran.


No, there are not; most if not all of the named prophets (Muhammad notwithstanding) in the Qur'an are associated with Biblical persons who are well-known to be male. Even of those whose biblical counterpart is debated, I know of no dispute over their gender.
