AsadAND [remember] Ishmael and Idris [See surah 19:56] and every one who [like them] has pledged himself [unto God]: [Lit., "and him of the pledge". The expression dhu l-kifl is derived from the verb kafala - and especially the form takaffala - which signifies "he became responsible [for some- thing or someone]" or "pledged himself [to do something]". Although the classical commentators consider dhu l-kifl to be the epithet or the proper name of a particular prophet - whom they variously, more or less at random, identify with Elijah or Joshua or Zachariah or Ezekiel - I fail to see any reason whatever for such attempts at "identification", the more so since we have not a single authentic hadith which would mention, or even distantly allude to, a prophet by this name. I am, therefore, of the opinion that we have here (as in the identical expression in 38:48) a generic term applying to every one of the prophets, inasmuch as each of them pledged himself unreservedly to God and accepted the responsibility for delivering His message to man.] they all were among those who are patient in adversity,
