As salaamualaikum Mufti Sahab. I wanted to know the differnce between a Nabi and a Rasool(Peace be upon them). Could you please also give the names of all the Rasool’s (saw). JazakhAllahukhair.

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

A long time back I have read in one of the website that, a Rasool or a Messenger(Peace be upon them) is one who brings new Deen to the people, and a Prophet or a Nabi(Peace be upon them) is one who guides the people in following that Deen.

Answer

This is the most preferred view that a Rasul is one who brings a new law,
and a Nabi is one who guides according to the previously revealed law.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
