The two Arabic terms used in the Quran of Mecca that we will draw from in relation to our Prophet are the terms Nabi and Rasul, as they are mentioned in Sura 7 Ayat 157.
"Those who follow the apostle [rasul] the unlettered prophet [nabi] whom they find mentioned in their own (Scriptures); in the law and the Gospel; for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil: he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him honor him help him and follow the light which is sent down with him it is they who will prosper." -- Sura 7:157

By utilizing an Ayat with both terms (Nabi and Rasul) it allows us to draw upon the distinction in them; Nabi (Prophet) is a general designation and Rasul (Messenger) is a special one. And this is to be understood in the manner that every Rasul is a Nabi, but every Nabi is not a Rasul. The word rasul is a general term and includes the messenger, the prophet (nabi) and the saint (muhaddas).' But more clarifying is the point that a Messenger (Rasul) brings a legislative message or scripture while the Prophet (Nabi) is non-legislative and usually propagates and/or confirms the legislative message of a prior Messenger (Rasul).
There are 313 Messengers (Rasul) that have brought revelation through created words on tablets or by the speech of angels. All that the revealed books contain are true; although some of the laws have been abrogated while some are still valid. There are one hundred four (104) revealed books. Ten (10) were revealed to Adam. Fifty (50) books were revealed to Seth. Thirty (30) books where revealed to Enoch. Ten (10) books where revealed to Abraham. The Torah (1) was revealed to Moses. The Gospel (1) was revealed to Jesus. The Psalms (1) were revealed to David. And the Quran (1) was revealed to the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
