Al-Quran is a guide of life for Muslims in which contains the law and commandments, codes for social and moral behavior that must be implemented in the life of every Muslim.

The Holy Quran is the holy book from Allah SWT which was revealed in stages to the Prophet Muhammad over 23 years through the angel Jibrael AS.

Al-Quran for Muslims is a source of divine blessings and rewards, tranquillity, and guidance, therefore, as Muslims we are obliged to believe in and understand the contents of the Qur’an.

To understand the contents of the Quran is to study it by reading (recitation), after reading we can study and analyze carefully the meaning contained in each verse, then practice it in everyday life.

Muslims can find peace and a great source of blessings through reading, memorizing, transcribing, or owning a copy of the Quran in their house. It is believed that on the Day of Judgment, the status of a Muslim man or woman in heaven will be determined by the number of verses of the Quran that he or she has memorized during their earthly life.

If you often read and understand the meaning of the verses in the Qur’an, you must realize that there are several names of figures mentioned in it.

Some of these figures are prophets and apostles who were sent by Allah SWT to convey messages to mankind, there are also names of angels and even figures who fight against Allah’s religion.

The number of names of people mentioned in the Qur’an is 49 people, both male and female. The names mentioned in the Quran include 25 prophets, 3 possible prophets, 13 non-prophets, and 8 angels.

Of the quite a number of names mentioned in the Qur’an, namely 49 names, only one woman’s name is mentioned. she is Maryam, the mother of Prophet Isa AS. The reason Maryam’s name is mentioned in the Quran is that Allah wants to tell people that Prophet Isa AS is the son of Mary.
