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.


The Names of the 25 Prophets Mentioned in Al-Quran are as follows:

  • Adam(A.W)
  • Idris(A.W) (Enoch)
  • Nuh(A.W) (Noah)
  • Hud(A.W) (Heber)
  • Salih(A.W) (Methusaleh)
  • Lut(A.W) (Lot)
  • Ibrahim(A.W) (Abraham)
  • Ismail(A.W) (Ishmael)
  • Ishaq(A.W) (Isaac)
  • Yaqub(A.W) (Jacob)
  • Yusuf(A.W) (Joseph)
  • Shu’aib(A.W) (Jethro)
  • Ayyub(A.W) (Job)
  • Dhulkifl(A.W) (Ezekiel)
  • Musa(A.W) (Moses)
  • Harun(A.W) (Aaron)
  • Dawud(A.W) (David)
  • Sulayman(A.W) (Solomon)
  • Ilias(A.W) (Elias)
  • Alyasa(A.W) (Elisha)
  • Yunus(A.W) (Jonah)
  • Zakariya(A.W) (Zachariah)
  • Yahya(A.W) (John the Baptist)
  • Isa(A.W) (Jesus)
  • Muhammad(Sallallahu Alihi wassallam)

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.
