    1) Dhul-Kifl (Ezekiel)

    And (remember) Isma'il (Ishmael), and Idris (Enoch) and Dhul-Kifl (Isaiah), all were from among As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.) And We admitted them to Our Mercy. Verily, they were of the righteous. Quran 21:85-86

    And remember Isma'il (Ishmael), Elisha (AlYasaa'a, and Zul-Kifl (Isaiah): Each of them was of the Company of the Good. Quran 38:48

    There is really not much known about him.

    2) Ilyas (Elijah

    And verily, Iliyas (Elias) was one of the Messengers. When he said to his people: “Will you not fear Allah? Will you call upon Ba’l (a well known idol of his nation whom they used to worship) and forsake the Best of creators, Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers?” But they denied him [Iliyas (Elias)], so they will certainly be brought forth (to the punishment), Except the chosen slaves of Allah. And We left for him (a goodly remembrance) among the later generations. “Salam (peace) be upon Ilyasin (Elias)!” Quran 37:123-130

    And Zakariya (Zachariah), and Yahya (John) and ‘Isa (Jesus) and Iliyas (Elias), each of them was of the righteous. Quran 6:85

    3) Al-Yasa (Elijah)

    1) Dhul-Kifl (pbuh) -

    Remember Ishmael and Idris and Dhul Kifl, all were from among those who observe patience.

    Surah Al-Anbiya 21:85-86

    Ibn Jarir narrated that he was not a prophet but he was a righteous man. He supported his people to suffice their needs and administered justice among them. That is why he was called Dhul-Kifl. (Dhul-Kifl literally means "possessor of, or giving, a double requital or portion".)

    2) Ilyas (Elijah) (pbuh)-

    And Zachariah and John and Jesus and Ilyas all in the ranks of the righteous; and Ismail and Elisha (Al-Yasa) and Jonas and Lot; each have We preferred above the nations. (To them) and their fathers and progeny and brethren, We chose them and We guided them to a straight way. (6:85-87

    The king and his queen had their neighbor killed because he was a man of pious conduct and of monotheistic faith; and annexed his fertile fruit groves to their own. Ilyas rebuked them for their ill conduct. He told them that if they did not repent on what they had wrought against an innocent family, return the groves to the orphan of the slain owner, Allah will send his punishment upon them, and they will be similarly slain in the same fruit garden. The king told Ilyas that he should refrain from confrontation with him or else he will have him arrested and tortured for his harsh words against his king.

    It so happened that the young son of the king became ill. Ilyas asked the king why did he not pray to his best idol for the recovery of his son. The king was so annoyed with the harsh words of Ilyas that he sent his palace guards to arrest him and bring him into his presence so that he could be tortured and killed in his presence. Ilyas prayed to Allah for His help. The palace guards fell down dead, and Ilyas was spared.

    Allah sent his punishment for the people in the form of a drought. Ilyas challenged them to go and sing and dance to please their false gods and see if they would send some rain for them. Clearly all the elements are subservient to Allah and no amount of material power can match His Will. They did all that was known to them but nothing happened.

    When hearts harden with hate and defiance, no amount of logic or reason makes any sense. They all swooped on Ilyas to lynch him in public. They blamed him for his magic to be the cause of their misery. They conspired to kill him.

    Ilyas appointed Al-Yasa' his successor and vanished in the protection of Allah. A monarch from a neighboring kingdom came and conquered the land. The king and his queen met their ill fate as predicted by Ilyas, and were slain in the same grove where they had killed its innocent owner. Their bodies lay rotting in the sun, and ravens and vultures ate their flesh.

    3) Alyasa (Elisha) (pbuh)-

    Al-Yasa' A (Elisha) was the cousin and spiritual successor of the Prophet Iliyas A (Elias).

    It is said that one day Al-Yasa' A (Elisha) was ploughing his fields when liyas A (Elias) passed from the area. Al-Yasa' A (Elisha) stopped ploughing and began following liyas A (Elias).

    liyas A (Elias) asked Al-Yasa' A (Elisha) for the reason of leaving his work? Al-Yasa' A (Elisha) requested liyas A (Elias) to stay with him for a while. He slaughtered his ox and cooked the beef for liyas A (Elias) and his companions. He was very pleased for his hospitality.

    Al-Yasa' A (Elisha) requested liyas A (Elias) that he wanted to serve him for the rest of his life. liyas A (Elias) made and asked to accompnay him.

    When liyas A (Elias) was on his death-bed, he asked Al-Yasa' A (Elisha) whether he wished anything. Al-Yasa' A (Elisha) told him to make Du'a (Supplication) for him that Allah (God) may bestow blessings upon him as He has blessed liyas A (Elias).

    4) Shu'ayb (pbuh)

    Our prophet Shu'ayb was an eloquent orator. His proofs were strong, for he spoke in the name of truth and justice, He spoke in the language of pure nature.

    Our prophet Shu'ayb summoned his people to serve Allah, the One and only and to refrain from worshipping idols. Then he calmly talked about corrupt markets and cheating in buying and selling.

    Our prophet Shu'ayb said to his people: "With these acts of yours you will spread corruption. Social life depends on exchanging commodities. You must exchange your commodities with each other.

    "Exchanging commodities in the market requires public security. This public security will keep the weight, quality, and quantity of all commodities.

    "Beware of cheating both buyer and seller. Be careful not to decrease the weight of the commodities you sell. Do not take good commodities for bad ones. If you do not refrain from these deeds, Allah, the Glorified, will destroy your houses."

    Prophet Shu'ayb words were very sweet. The Prophet used such words because he wanted the people of Madyan to lead a better life. He wanted them to live in a village full of good, livelihood, peace, and faith.
