Prophet Enoch  

Enoch was the son of Cain.

The story of prophet Enoch (Idris) is mentioned in the Quran (Surah Maryam). He is praised as highly upright, pious, and that God raised him to a high place. Some said this place was the fourth heaven and some said the sixth. What is confirmed is that Prophet Enoch then came back to Earth after being raised to the heavens. He came back to Earth and died on Earth. Enoch was a Prophet and Messenger, confirmed in the Quran. We must have a firm belief that Enoch was a Prophet of God and that he conveyed the message from God.

“He who indulges in excess will not benefit from it.”

“The real joy of life is to have wisdom.”
