Some names of Prophets and Messengers I have found in the Noble Qur’an :

Surah Al-Baqarah 136
Say (O Muslims), “We have believed in Allah, and whatever has been sent down to us, and whatever was sent down to Ibrahim, and Ismail, and Ishaq and Yaaqub and the Grandsons, and whatever was brought down to Musa and Isa, and whatever was brought to the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we are Muslims.”

Ibrahim alayhi salaam
Ismail alayhi salaam
Ishaq alayhi salaam
Yaaqub alayhi salaam
Musa alayhi salaam
Isa alayhi salaam

Surah Ali ‘Imran 39
Then the angels called to him (Zakariya) as he stood praying in the sanctuary: That Allah gives you the good news of Yahya verifying a Word from Allah, and honorable and chaste and a prophet from among the good ones

Yahya alayhi salaam

Surah An-Nisa 163
Surely We have revealed to you as We revealed to Nuh, and the prophets after him, and We revealed to Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaq and Yaqoub and the tribes, and Isa and Ayub and Yunus and Haroun and Sulaiman and We gave to Dawood, Zabur

Nuh alayhi salaam
Ayub alayhi salaam
Yunus alayhi salaam
Haroun alayhi salaam
Sulaiman alayhi salaam
Dawood alayhi salaam

Surah Al-An’am 85-89
And Zakariyya and Yahya and Isa and Ilyas, each one was of the righteous
And Ismail and Ilyas and Yunus, and Lut; and each one We graced over the worlds;
And [some] among their fathers and their descendants and their brothers – and We chose them and We guided them to a straight path.
That is the guidance of Allah by which He guides whomever He wills of His servants. But if they had associated others with Allah , then worthless for them would be whatever they were doing.
Those are the ones to whom We gave the Scripture and authority and prophethood. But if the disbelievers deny it, then We have entrusted it to a people who are not therein disbelievers.

Zakariyya alayhi salaam
Ilyas alayhi salaam
Lut alayhi salaam

Surah Hud 50
And unto (the tribe of) A’ad (We sent) their brother, Hud. He said: O my people! Serve Allah! Ye have no other God except Allah. Lo! ye do but invent

Hud alayhi salaam

Surah Maryam 19
He (Jibril) said, “Surely I am only a Messenger of your Lord to bestow upon you a pure boy.”

(Angel) Jibril alayhi salaam

Surah Maryam 56
And mention in the Book, Idrees. Indeed, he was a man of truth and a prophet

Idrees alayhi salaam

Surah Al-Ahzab 40
Muhammad is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets. And ever is Allah , of all things, Knowing.

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salaam

And the messenger of Allah [Salih] said to them, “[Do not harm] the she-camel of Allah or [prevent her from] her drink

Salih alayhi salaam
