Will you give information about Hz. Khidr?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

There is no detailed information about the life of Hz. Khidr. In the Quran, the name of Khidr is not mentioned clearly. However, it is understood from the story of Hz. Moses (Musa) that the person mentioned in verses 60-82 of the chapter of al-Kahf as follows is Hz. Khidr:

"…One of Our servants on whom We had bestowed Mercy from Ourselves and whom We had taught knowledge from Our own presence."(al-Kahf, 18/65)

For, it is clearly stated in the sound hadiths reported from the Prophet (pbuh) that this person is Khidr. (see Bukhari, Ilm 16, 44, Tafsiru'l-Qur'an, Tafsiru Surati'l-Kahf 2-4; Muslim, Fadail 170-174)
