56. And mention in the Book, Idris. Verily, he was a man of truth, (and) a Prophet. 57. And We raised him to a high station.
Allah complimented Idris for being a truthful Prophet and He mentioned that he raised him to a high station. It has previously been mentioned that in the Sahih it is recorded that the Messenger of Allah passed by Idris on the night of the Isra (Night Journey) and he (Idris) was in the fourth heaven. Sufyan reported from Mansur that Mujahid said,
(And We raised him to a high station.) "This means the fourth heaven.'' Al-Hasan and others said concer- ning Allah's statement,
(And We raised him to a high station.) "This means Paradise.''
