The Prophet ‘Imran

Not many people know about the Prophet ‘Imran a.s. or that he was a Prophet. A whole chapter/surah in the Qur’an has been named after his family: Aal ‘Imran (3). The Jews called him a liar because his wife gave birth to a daughter: Maryam (mother of Prophet ‘Isa a.s.), and the Christians took this from the Jews and forgot about him almost. The Qur’an and Islam came to re-establish / confirm he is a Prophet of Allah indeed, although not mentioned among the commonly other 25 Prophets mentioned in the Qur’an. The Prophet ‘Imran a.s. has been buried in the city of Salalah, Oman. See here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSWARoLybe0&feature=player_embedded#at=30
