"VERILY, this Qur'an shows the way to all that is most upright; and gives the believers who do good deeds
the glad tiding that theirs will be a great reward"

19: 56 to 19: 57

أعوذبِاللَّـهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ 
[I Seek refuge in ALLAH from Shaitan - the accursed one]
 بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
 [In The Name of ALLAH, The MOST GRACIOUS - THE MOST MERCIFUL]


PROPHET IDRIS


وَاذْكُرْ فِي الْكِتَابِ إِدْرِيسَ ۚ إِنَّهُ كَانَ صِدِّيقًا نَّبِيًّا 
Wa Adhkur Fī Al-Kitābi 'Idrīsa 'Innahu Kāna Şiddīqāan Nabīyāan


And mention in the Book, Idris. Verily, he was a man of truth, (and) a Prophet.

[19 : 56]

وَرَفَعْنَاهُ مَكَانًا عَلِيًّا
Wa Rafa`nāhu Makānāan `Alīyāan

And We raised him to a high station.

[19 : 57]

EXPLANATION:

Allah complimented Idris for being a truthful Prophet and He mentioned that he raised him to a high station. It has previously been mentioned that in the Sahih it is recorded that the Messenger of Allah passed by Idris on the night of the Isra (Night Journey) and he (Idris) was in the fourth heaven. Sufyan reported from Mansur that Mujahid said,
(And We raised him to a high station.) "This means the fourth heaven.'' Al-Hasan and others said concerning Allah's statement, (And We raised him to a high station.) "This means Paradise.''


LESSONS LEARNT:
  • Prophet Idris is mentioned as a truthful prophet in the Qur'an. As a result Allah (SWT) elevated Prophet Idris to the high status. This underlines the importance of being truthful in every aspect of ones life.
