In Islam, ʾIdris (a) is one of the prophets (a) of God. The Qur'an considered him one of the greatest prophets (a) who reached a high position. Some exegetes of the Qur'an and Muslim historians considered him to be Enoch (the great-grandfather of Noah (a) in the Bible). According to Islamic narrations, Idris (a) was the first person who made clothes and used the pen for writing and studied astronomy and mathematics. His occupation was tailoring and al-Sahla Mosque was his house. There is a disagreement among exegetes and Islamic scholars about him being dead or alive.
