By the way, after putting this post, I sent a question to Br. Shabir Ally of the Islamic Information Center asking him if Verses 2:243 and 2:259 refer to the vision of prophet Hizqeel (Ezekiel), and if so, to quote some references.

I quote his brief response as follows:

"The English translation of the summarized Tafsir Ibn Kathir vol. 1, pp. 680-683 says that 2:243 involves Ezekiel. But the same source connects 2:259 not with Ezekiel but with Uzair (vol. 2, pp.38-41. In any case this is the sort of story that scholars classify as Israiliyyat and hold to be unreliable."

Uzair is the same as Ezra in Hebrew.  As Pickthall has mentioned in one of his brief commentaries that some 'ulemas' do take verse 2:259 as referring to Ezekiel (though the Quraan hasn't given any reason to think that), Br. Shabir is right in saying that Ibn Kathir refers verse 2:259 to Ezra, though again, the Quraan does not give any reason to think that.  Ezra was quite certainly not a prophet.  The Quraan mentions about him very briefly only in Verse 9:30

And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse are they! 9:30  At-Taubah

Ezra was said to be a Jewish spiritual leader.  According to Jewish history, he was probably a descendent of Prophet Moses' brother, Aaron (Haroon).  Allah knows best. 

Ibn Kathir's story on Ezra is again very far-fetched with no connections with the Quraan.  At the moment, I cannot find the Biblical version of Ibn Kathir's writing on Ezra (Uzair) but I'm sure his source is somewhere within the manipulated Jewish and Biblical history.

To read Ibn Kathir's fabricated story on Uzair (Ezra), visit the following link at Islam Awareness.  It's interesting to note that Br. Shabir Ally admitted that these stories are "unreliable."  However, he tried to sound a little diplomatic to appease the "scholars" which frankly didn't make much sense. He said in his response that "this is the sort of story that scholars classify as Israiliyyat and hold to be unreliable."  But according to Hadith traditionalists, Ibn Kathir is supposed to be "one of the great scholars" and he is the one who is writing these fabrications.
