The messengers of strong will (ulo al-azm min al-rusul) were the elite of the messengers and the prophets (peace be upon them). In this research entitled Interpretative Views of the Messengers' of Strong Will, I intended to draw out the core from the Noble Quran in which the status and representation of the messengers (peace be upon them). The messengers of will were those of patience, perseverance, endurance and determination; they were the renowned and elite messengers. Specifying some of them is based on their status, great reputation and heart winning impact especially those who followed them.

Scholars said about them: " they were the elite of messengers (peace be upon them)."

As cited in the Noble Quran " Therefore, be patient (O Muhammed Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam) as did the Messengers of strong will" Al-'Ahqaf Surat, Ayat no. 35.

Moreover, patience was the greatest status of the seekers of Almighty Allah's path. It was the steadiness in the right path and inuring the psyche to be prevented willy, leaving the pleasures and desires and undergoing ordeals, and willing up to perfection, especially for the messengers of strong will who were: Noah, Ibrahim, Moses, Essa, and Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him). There were other citations so far as the messengers of strong will were concerned.

     The messengers of strong will was a compound Quranic term of adjunct and genitive taken as proper noun on ulo Al-Azm. Almighty Allah take the messengers and prophets form all peoples. They were (peace be upon them) in the mercy and blessing of Almighty Allah.
