The world cannot remain without a religious guide appointed by Allah. That guide may be a prophet or a successor of the prophet (without himself being a prophet). Between Hazrat Isa (a.s.) and Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (s.a.w.) there was a gap of about 6 centuries. During this period, there were 3 chains of religious guides: a.The successors of Hazrat Isa (a.s.), last of whom was Hazrat Salman Farsi who became a follower of our Holy Prophet. b.The Successors of Hazrat Ismail (a.s.), last of whom was Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s). He also became a follower of our Holy Prophet. These guides in these two chains were not prophets themselves. c.Also, there came a few prophets in various places, and name of one or two of them is mentioned in the traditions.
No, Luqman, according to many traditions was an Ethiopian blessed with an extra-ordinary endowment of wisdom. But he was not a prophet. Some identify him with Asop of the well-known fables. Khidr was a prophet whilst Talut was a king appointed by Allah.
Nabi Ibrahim had three sons: Ismail, Ishaq and Midyan. He did not make any one of them a prophet. Prophets are not made by human beings. It is Allah who appoints Prophets and Imams. Hadhrat Ismail and Hadhrat Ishaq were prophets as designated by Allah.
He was not a magician. In fact it is a blasphemy to couple the word "magician'' with his sacred name. He was given power of miracles by Allah, by which he used to overcome the magicians. I strongly advise you to study first the basic and elementary matters of religion so that you may know the essential beliefs and practices of your religion.
