Which Prophets died in Sujood?

A death while performing Sajda is considered the best death in Islam. Do you know out of 124,000, how many prophets of Allah died in Sujood?

Unfortunately, there is not much information about the deaths of prophets. The names of only 25 prophets are mentioned in the Holy Quran and we are not fully aware of the way they died.

However, there are some references which suggest that the following two prophets of Allah died in Sujood i.e Prophet Ibrahim عليه السلام and Prophet Dawud عليه السلام.
