The Prophet Idris is mentioned twice in the Qur'an: first in surah al-Anbiya (The Prophets) verse number 85, and secondly in surah Maryam (Mary) verses 56–57:

"And the same blessing was bestowed upon Ismail and Idris and Dhul Kifl, because they all practised fortitude." (Qur'an "The Prophets" 21:85)

"And remember Idris in the Book; he was indeed very truthful, a Prophet. And We lifted him to a lofty station" (Qur'an "Mary" 19:56–57)
