and this encompasses all of Allah's Prophets.

لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيْنَ أَحَدٍ مِّنْهُمْ

We make no distinction between one another among them,

we believe in all of them.

وَنَحْنُ لَهُ مُسْلِمُونَ



And to Him (Allah) we have submitted (in Islam).

Therefore, faithful Muslims believe in every Prophet whom Allah has sent and in every Book He revealed, and never disbelieve in any of them. Rather, they believe in what was revealed by Allah, and in every Prophet sent by Allah.
