How old where the Prophets?

It is said that life expectancy has increased. That due to improved eating habits and better health care, we  are living longer than ever before.

A child born in the naughties (2000) can expect to live to a hundred.

100 years ..that’s a very ripe old age.

The poor Victorians  were lucky if they saw 60!

Is it possible that humans can  live up to 100 years?

Believe it or not there was a time when being a centurion was considered young! A hundred years old person, phsh that was just a kid!  😀

That time was a reality. It was the time of the Prophets.

Adam the first man on earth lived for one thousand + years ! Some scholars argue he lived for two thousand years. Let that sink in for a minute. A man living for two thousand years!

Adam was a human being like you and I.  Physically he would have been like us as in one head, two arms, a stomach, a pair of kidneys etc. Yet he lived for more than 1000  +years.

Let’s  take a journey back in time and see how long our Holy Prophets lived.
