Surah An-Nisa 163

And We gave to Ibrahim, Ishaq and Yaaqub, all [of them] We guided. And Nuh, We guided before; and among his descendants, Dawood and Sulaiman and Ayyub and Yusuf and Musa and Haroun. Thus We reward the good-doers
And Zakariyya and Yahya and Isa and Ilyas, each one was of the righteous
And Ismail and Alyas’a and Yunus, and Lut; and each one We graced over the worlds;
And [some] among their fathers and their descendants and their brothers – and We chose them and We guided them to a straight path.
That is the guidance of Allah by which He guides whomever He wills of His servants. But if they had associated others with Allah , then worthless for them would be whatever they were doing.
Those are the ones to whom We gave the Scripture and authority and prophethood. But if the disbelievers deny it, then We have entrusted it to a people who are not therein disbelievers.

Zakariyya  ‘alayhi salaam
Ilyas  ‘alayhi salaam
