The first of the Prophets and the first of the Messengers


i wouldlike to know if adam-ali-is-salaam was a prophet and if he was not who was our first prophet ,basicily the origen and the history of islam

Praise be to

(peace be upon him) was the first of the Prophets, as it says in the
hadeeth narrated by Ibn Hibbaan in his Saheeh, that the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah
be upon him) was asked about Adam – was he a Prophet? He said, “yes,
a Prophet to whom Allaah spoke.” But he was not a Messenger, because
of the hadeeth about intercession in which it says that the people will
go to Nooh and say to him, “You are the first Messenger whom Allaah
sent to the earth.” 

This text clearly indicates that Nooh was the first
of the Messengers. And Allaah knows best. 

Fataawa Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 1/317. 

the father of mankind was a Prophet, so he was the first of the Prophets.
