Dear Brother / Sister,
It is accepted that since Adam (a.s.), 24 thousand prophet came to this earth. It is hard to determine which one was a martyr or the first martyr but the names of 25 prophets are mentioned in the noble Quran.
As far we know, among these prophets, the Prophet Ashiya (Isaiah) was the first martyr. Prophet Zakariya‘s son Prophet Yahya (John) comes next.
After him, his father was martyred.
