Ayah

وَٱذۡكُرۡ إِسۡمَٰعِيلَ وَٱلۡيَسَعَ وَذَا ٱلۡكِفۡلِ ۖ وَكُلٌّ مِّنَ ٱلۡأَخۡيَارِ

Translation

And commemorate Isma'il, Elisha, and Zul-Kifl: Each of them was of the Company of the Good.<br/>

Tafsir

And mention [also] Our servants Ishmael, and Elisha, who was a prophet (the laam [here in al-Yasa'] is extra) and Dhoo'l-Kifl - there is disagreement over whether he was a prophet; it is said that [he was so called because] he looked after (kafala) a hundred prophets who had sought refuge with him from being killed. Each, that is, every one of them, was among the excellent (akhyaar is the plural of khayyir).
