Intro
Per the Quran, Chapter 2:213, 3:79, 57:25-26. 6:114 and 6:84-90 proves that Allah gives KITAB, HUKUM and NUBUWAA (revelations, wisdom and prophethood). Thus, all 124,000 prophets who were mentioned in the Quran brought KITAB (divine revelations). KITAB only means divine revelations. In fact, in 6:84–89 mentions 18 prophets and how they all brought KITAB. KITAB never meant an actual book, since books were not common in 7th century. There are 7 additional prophets mentioned in the Quran. In Muhammad Ali’s famous book “Prophethood in Islam” [1915], he asserts that MGA didn’t bring any KITAB (see page 146) and thus MGA could not be a prophet, since the quran is clear that all prophets brought KITAB. Muhammad Ali even quoted MGA’s book, “Shahadat ul Quran” and showed how MGA had in-fact made this argument, i.e., that he wasn’t a prophet since he brought no KITAB (we haven’t located this reference yet). However, Muhammad Ali overlooked the idea that MGA brought the Quran back from the Pleidies, and thus MGA did bring a KITAB, i.e., the quran (nauzobillah). Even after the split, the Qadiani-Ahmadi refused to admit to this. In fact, we haven’t seen any Qadiani or Lahori-Ahmadi attempt to tackle this issue to date. In 1917, in Muhammad Ali’s famous commentary of the Quran, in terms of 6:89, he wrote that all prophets were given a KITAB.
By 1988, Malik Ghulam Farid wrote his commentary on 6:89 and claimed that there were hundreds of prophets who were not given  book, he made other similar arguments.

2:213 of the Quran

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL

“”Mankind was [of] one religion [before their deviation]; then Allah sent the prophets as bringers of good tidings and warners and sent down with them the Scripture in truth to judge between the people concerning that in which they differed. And none differed over the Scripture except those who were given it – after the clear proofs came to them – out of jealous animosity among themselves. And Allah guided those who believed to the truth concerning that over which they had differed, by His permission. And Allah guides whom He wills to a straight path.””

3:79 of the Quran

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL

“”It is not for a human [prophet] that Allah should give him the Scripture and authority and prophethood and then he would say to the people, “Be servants to me rather than Allah,” but [instead, he would say], “Be pious scholars of the Lord because of what you have taught of the Scripture and because of what you have studied.”””

57:25–26 of the Quran
SAHIH INTERNATIONAL

25—-“”We have already sent Our messengers with clear evidences and sent down with them the Scripture and the balance that the people may maintain [their affairs] in justice. And We sent down iron, wherein is great military might and benefits for the people, and so that Allah may make evident those who support Him and His messengers unseen. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.””

26—“””And We have already sent Noah and Abraham and placed in their descendants prophethood and scripture; and among them is he who is guided, but many of them are defiantly disobedient.”””SAHIH INTERNATIONAL

6:114 of the Quran

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL

[Say], “Then is it other than Allah I should seek as judge while it is He who has revealed to you the Book explained in detail?” And those to whom We [previously] gave the Scripture know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth, so never be among the doubters.

6:84–91

84–And We gave to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – all [of them] We guided. And Noah, We guided before; and among his descendants, David and Solomon and Job and Joseph and Moses and Aaron. Thus do We reward the doers of good.

85–And Zechariah and John and Jesus and Elias – and all were of the righteous.

86–And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot – and all [of them] We preferred over the worlds.

87–And [some] among their fathers and their descendants and their brothers – and We chose them and We guided them to a straight path.

88–That is the guidance of Allah by which He guides whomever He wills of His servants. But if they had associated others with Allah, then worthless for them would be whatever they were doing.

89–Those are the ones to whom We gave the Scripture and authority and prophethood. But if the disbelievers deny it, then We have entrusted it to a people who are not therein disbelievers.

90–Those are the ones whom Allah has guided, so from their guidance take an example. Say, “I ask of you for this message no payment. It is not but a reminder for the worlds.”

91—And they did not appraise Allah with true appraisal when they said, ” Allah did not reveal to a human being anything.” Say, “Who revealed the Scripture that Moses brought as light and guidance to the people? You [Jews] make it into pages, disclosing [some of] it and concealing much. And you were taught that which you knew not – neither you nor your fathers.” Say, ” Allah [revealed it].” Then leave them in their [empty] discourse, amusing themselves.
