Human beings are created as the best of Allah’s creation and are gifted with mental faculties. To keep these mental faculties on the righteous path, Allah sent a series of Prophets. Prophets are used to pave the path between Allah and His people. They make the people follow the orders of Holy Books and scriptures. They not only advised the people to follow the orders of Allah but also practiced those instructions for the ease of people. The Prophets are assigned the duty to guide the people and people are also guided to respect and follow their teachings.
