    Elisha's Mission

    "And
    remember Our slaves, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, (all) owners of
    strength (in worshipping Us) and (also) of religious understanding.
    Verily, We did choose them by granting them (a good thing ) the
    remembrance of the home (in the Hereafter and they used to make the
    people remember it, and also they used to invite the people to obey
    Allah and to do good deeds for the Hereafter). And they are in Our
    Sight, verily, of the chosen and the best! And remember Ishmael,
    Elisha, and Dhul-Kifl, all are among the best. (Ch 38:45-48 Quran).

    Ibn Ishaaq said that Elisha (pbuh) was sent to the
    children after Elijah (pbuh). He lived among his people, calling them
    to Allah and abiding by the message and laws of Elijah until he passed
    away. Then dissension rose among them, and events took momentum. Sins
    increased everywhere, and the tyrants increased and killed the prophets.
