    Qur'an 18:83-98 verses mentions a prophet Allah communicated with who built a wall to separate tribes of Yajoog & Majoog (Gog &Magog in Bible) to protect the people in his kingdom.

    Isa Jesus

    The prophet who talked at birth One of the highest ranked prophets in Islam, Eisa Maseeh, (Jesus the Messiah) was sent to guide the Children of Israel. The Qur'an makes it very clear that in Islam, Jesus is not the son of God, but rather a nabi and rasul (messenger) of God and son of Mary (Marium).
    'Isa performed many miracles with the permission of God. For example, raising the dead, creating a bird from clay, talking as an infant. Islamic traditions states that he abstained from drinking alcohol. It also states that he received a revelation, the Injil (Gospel) Bible, though according to Islam, it has been distorted. Quran and Muslim teachings state 'Isa was not crucified, meaning he was not killed on the cross.  Isa was raised up to God and will return to Earth to fight the Dajjal during the time of the Mahdi . .)

    Muhammed Only Prophet who was raised from his sleep to travel outside Earth into space and see all the Seven Heavens and Hell and finally met Allah.   Muhammed ibn 'Abdullah,(53 B.H-11 A.H; 571-632 AD) [46] is the last prophet in Islam ("seal of the Prophets") His father's name was 'Abdullah ibn 'AbdulMuttalib and his mother's name was Amina bint Wahb az-Zuhriyya. Muhammed (Sallallahu alaihi wa Sallam). Born in Mecca in 571 AD (53 AH), Muhammed spent the first part of his life as a well-travelled merchant. He would often spend his time in the mountains surrounding Mecca in prayer contemplating the situation with the city. At the age of forty, during one of those trips in the cave of Hira in the mountain, Muhammed  was visted by Gaberial and began to,  receive and recite verses from Allah which today make up the Qur'an. He quickly spread the message he was receiving, converting a few others in the city, including his wife. He is the last (seal) of the prophets with a message to all humanity. When oppression became intolerable for his followers, Muhammed first asked his fellow Muslims to migrate to Medina and later himself migrated to Medina away from the oppressors in Mecca. Muhammad served not just as a prophet, but as a military leader who was helped by God to defeat the Meccans in 624 during the Battle of Badr. He continued to lead the Muslims as Islam spread across the Arabian Peninsula. He performed the first hajj in 629 and established Islam as it is still practiced by Muslims today. Others continued Muhammad's legacy after his death in 632, having been given the position of caliph (or successor) to Muhammad. The Five Pillars of Islam were established from his Hadiths after Muhammad's death.
