Question on names
« on: September 10, 2017, 10:17:04 AM »
Salam,

I had a question regarding the names of the prophets in the quran, the quran calls abraham ibrahim, moses musa, jesus isa, aaron harun, and i can go on.

Basically my question is do we believe that the real name of abraham was ibrahim and the real name of moses was musa and the real name of jesus was isa? Or do we say that these prophets were callex ibrahim and musa etc brcause this is how they were known to the arabs at that time therefor they would understand ehat god would be saying to them

So were these their real names or are these just their names in the arsbic form like jesus is the english form and this is how they were known to the arabs at that time

Jazakallah khair in advance for the answers
