Title: Who is prophet Imran (Radiyallahu Anhu)?


Assalam mu Alaikum 


My question is regarding the grave of Prophet Imran in Salalah in Oman. Who was this Prophet? Was it Prophet Musa's (AS) father or Maryam's (AS) father? Can you explain the matter


Jazak Allah Kairun


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

We are not aware of any prophet named Imran.[1] However, Imran (Radiyallahu Anhu) was the father of Musa[2] (Alaihis Salam) and also the Father of Maryam[3] (Alaihas Salam), both their parents were very pious and god-fearing slaves of Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’āla).

We are not aware of the grave of Imran (Radiyallahu Anhu) or its authenticity being in Salalah.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
