      Prophet
    Idris (Enoch)


    Allah has praised
    Enoch, describing him as being a prophet and truthful:

    "Mention in the Book (Quran) Idris
    (Enoch). Verily! He was a man of truth (and) a prophet. We raised him
    to a high station".
    (Ch 19:56-57 Quran).

    Birth and Teachings

    Enoch was born and raised
    in Babylon following the teachings and religion of Prophet Adam (pbuh)
    and his son Seth (pbuh). Enoch was the 5th generation of the Prophet
    Adam. He called the people back to his forefathers religion, but only a
    few listened to him, while the majority turned away.


    Prophet Enoch and his
    followers left Babylon for Egypt. There he carried on his mission,
    calling people to what is just and fair, teaching them certain prayers
    and instructing them to fast on certain days and to give a portion of
    their wealth to the poor.

    The Wise Sayings of Prophet Enoch

    He was the first of the
    Children of Adam to be given prophethood after Adam and Seth (peace
    upon them). It is reported that he was the 1st to invent the basic form
    of writing. Some of his wise sayings are:


    "Happy is he who looks at
    his own deeds and appoints them as pleaders to his Lord."

    "None can show
    better gratitude for Allah's favors than he who shares them with
    others."

    "Do not envy people for what they have as they will only enjoy it for a
    short while."

    "He who indulges in excess will not benefit from it."

    "The real joy of life is to have wisdom."
