God praised Idris and attributed to him prophethood and righteousness. He is Enoch and is in the genealogical chain of the Prophet Muhammad. He was the first descendent of Adam to whom prophethood was given after Seth. Many of the scholars allege that he was the first to speak about writing, and they call him the Thrice-Great Hermes.
It is saidthat God sent Idris to all the people of the earth in his time, and that all the knowledge of those in the past was gathered together and given to him in thirty scrolls.
Idris was taken up and did not die just like Jesus was taken up. It means that he did not die until now that it means that he was taken up to heaven still living, then he was held there.
