What is a "lakh" our dear Mukhtar?

in response to reader comment: Numbering of prophets.

Another scholar our dear Mukhtar from India wrote this little gem:

>You said 12400000 prophets. Not this but It's one lakh 24 thousand Or 2 lakhs 24 something. Corrrect it.

So your Allah sent 124,000 prophets?

So I have a few questions:

1. Can you name them for us?

2. I'm sure your Allah sent books with each prophet. What happened to these books? Were they eaten by hungry goats like the one that ate parts of the Qur'an? What a disaster Allah could not protect the books of 124,000 prophets!

3. Who was the prophet that was sent to your Urdu ancestors from among the 124,000 prophets? It cannot be Muhammad after all Muhammad spoke Arabic only!

4. Hey, where can we find a copy of Allah's Bible?

I will be waiting
