The Prophet Daniel (a.s.) in Islam

May be not as known as the other 25 Prophets (a.s.) explicitly mentioned in the Qur’an, there are other Prophets, like the Prophet Daniel (a.s.) for example.

He has been mentioned by imam Ibn Kathir (r) in his book on the “Stories of the Prophets” (translated to English). Ibn Kathir mentions there is some debate / difference of opinion on the question if he was a prophet or a saint. Ibn Kathir relies for a great deal on Ibn Abi ad-Dunya (r.).  See here: http://www.witness-pioneer.org/vil/Articles/Prophet/daniel.htm

The Prophet Daniel (“Danyal”) was also mentioned by imam at-Tabari (r.) in his ‘Tarikh‘. See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel and here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_view_of_Daniel

Shaykh Haytham al-Haddad tells a little story here about the Prophet Daniel a.s.: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46G-p0-8FCo&feature=player_embedded
