I removed this text from the article:

[Ezekiel was] a contemporary of Ilyas (Elijah). He was a pious and well-respected man living during the reign of a particularly tyrannical king who tried to kill many prophets. Ezekiel was responsible for saving the lives of many of them, and his name means savior or protector. (However note that this information does not agree with what the Jewish/Christian Bible has to tell about Ezekiel; according to the Bible Ezekiel lived some centuries after Elija(Ilyas) and it was Elija, not Ezekiel, who saved the lives of the prophets.)

I'm not sure I follow this. Is Ezekiel mentioned elsewhere in the Quran? If not, what is the source for the idea that he was a contemporary of Elijah's? - Nat Krause 15:05, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)

I changed the dates. Ezekiel was around 600 B.C. - not 1600.Somaeye (talk) 07:44, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Stub status[edit]

As his role in Buddhism and Christianity is unclear I went ahead and mad it a stub of all three (including Islam). freestylefrappe 21:44, July 19, 2005 (UTC)


I think it would be better if it was mentioned that he is considered by some to be a prophet of god, not Islam specifically as the article says.

"Interestingly the Buddhist scriptures also tell the coming of Prophet Muhammad. [citation needed] "[edit]

This has been mentioned on Talk:Buddhism - Could any editor here at least cite the reference from where this claim is being made? (20040302)

It's been pulled. It would have been better to have kept it with the cite. If the editor ( would like to show where in Buddhist scripture this is, then we can put it back. (20040302)

Dhul Kifl Shrine[edit]

Actually, the shrine of Dhul Kifl does not seems to be a muslim typical shrine... actually, looks like a stupa or pagoda... I've never seen a muslim shrine with this form.
