49 names of people mentioned in the Holy Quran

Do you know there are 49 names of people (male and female) mentioned in the Holy Quran and out of them only one is a woman? The names of people mentioned in the Holy Quran includes 25 Prophets, 3 probable prophets, 13 non-prophets, and 8 angels.

How many women’s names are mentioned in the Holy Quran?

People often ask out of 49 names of people mentioned in the Holy Quran, how many of them are women or females? There is only one woman whose name is mentioned in the Holy Quran and that too because Allah wanted to tell people that Prophet Isa A.S is the son of Maryam.

I think it is important for each and every Muslims at least to know about these facts. Allah awarded almost all his prophets with miracles and the biggest miracle which was awarded to the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W is the Holy Quran.[
