Idris

From Thelemapedia

Idris is a Prophet in Islam. He is known in the Bible as Enoch.

In the Quran, he is the grand-father of Nuh (Noah). Idris is credited with learning many useful skills or inventing things which humans now use such as writing, mathematics, astronomy, etc. According to Islamic tradition, his time was one when many people had forgotten God, and the world was thus punished with a drought. However, Idris prayed for them, and it began to rain, ending the drought.

There is also a British tradition about Idris the prophet who founded Caer-Idris settlement or City of Idris somewhere in the British Isles where Astronomy was taught. The name Idris is still common in Wales today in rememberance of this famous Druid.
