    Do not forget Prophet Shammil (as) [Samuel] who was mentioned in Surah Baqarah. And also Yusha bin Nun [Joshua] mentioned in Surah Al-Kahf. I used to be Christian before Islam, and Samuel and Joshua were two men from the Jewish scripture. They were referred to in Quran but not mentioned by name. Rasoolullah (saws) confirmed in hadith that the boy traveling with Musa (as) when he met Khidr (as) at the junction of the two seas was indeed Yusha bin Nun (Joshua). And Joshua was famous in the Jewish scripture for leading the Israelites into jihad against the pagans in Palestine after Musa's (as) death.
