I have a huge issue with your claim. Abraham and Moses were NOT prophets. There's a big difference. Prophets, like the first and second Isaiah, Jeremiah, Jonah, etc., were sent by God to tell of the future. Abraham and Moses did no such thing. Abraham was guided by Yahweh to become the patriarch of the promised land. Moses was guided by Yahweh to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Prophets are seers, not leaders.

Also, there is no way at all that both guys are Muslim. Islam is rather new (and the creator may have been a criminal!), started in the 7th century AD. Therefore, back in the 3rd or 2nd millenium BC, there would have been no concept of Islam or Muslim. Abraham and Moses are HEBREWS, or 'ivrim in hebrew. Makkah and Medina may have existed in the time of the Chaldeans, but obviously the boring monolith in the center of Makkah certainly was not there (yes, I said boring-- there's no artistic value in it). Have fun tearing this post and myself apart

Hallelu et Yah and Hallelu et Yehushuah! Happy Birthday Yehushuah!
