Are al prophets , prophets from birth? meaning they knew themselves from birth that they were prophets, or is this something they get told later on in life by revelation?
Such as i believe Muhammad (saw) was said to spread islam at the age of 40 (correct me if im wrong). Does that mean he was a normal person before not knowing he was a prophet before this?
Also if they knew they were prophets from brith, why do they get the revelation later in life?
Such as prophet musa (as) on the mountain to deliver his people from egypt?
