Some Muslim scholars think that the Khizr is a prophet who is the same character as Elijah in the Bible. Others say he wasn't a prophet at all, but only a wise and saintly man who was wazir (vizier) to a great conqueror who lived in the time of Abraham. Khizr was known to wear green clothes, and the word for "green" in Arabic is nearly the same as his name.
