Mormonism and Islam have been compared to one another ever since the earliest origins of the former in the nineteenth century, often by detractors of one religion or the other—or both.  For instance, Joseph Smith , the founding prophet of Mormonism, was referred to as "the modern Mahomet " by the New York Herald ,  shortly after his murder in June 1844. This epithet repeated a comparison that had been made from Smith's earliest career,  one that was not intended at the time to be complimentary. Comparison of the Mormon and Muslim prophets still occurs today, sometimes for derogatory or polemical reasons  but also for more scholarly and neutral purposes.  While Mormonism and Islam certainly have many similarities, there are also significant, fundamental differences between the two religions. Mormon – Muslim relations have historically been cordial;  recent years have seen increasing dialogue between adherents of the two faiths, and cooperation in charitable endeavors , especially in the Middle and Far East . 
One of Islam’s six pillars of faith requires that a Muslim believes in all of the Prophets . To reject one is to reject them all. Muslims believe that God sent many Prophets, one to every nation. Some we know by name and others we do not. Prophet Muhammad is known to have said that all the Prophets are brothers to one another. Thus you will find that all the Prophets mentioned in the Bible are respected and acknowledged by Islam. Many of them are mentioned by name in the Quran with detailed life stories. Islam treats all Prophet with respect and rejects the stories in the Bible that ridicule and tarnish some of the Prophets.
