Prophet Ibrahim AS Part 2

3|33|God chose Adam, and Noah, and the family of Abraham, and the family of Imran, over all mankind.


21|69|We said, “O fire, be coolness and safety upon Abraham.”

21|70|They planned to harm him, but We made them the worst losers.

21|71|And We delivered him, and Lot, to the land that We blessed for all people.

21|72|And We granted him Isaac and Jacob as a gift; and each We made righteous.

21|73|And We made them leaders, guiding by Our command; and We inspired them to do good works, and to observe the prayer, and to give out charity. They were devoted servants to Us.


11|69|Our messengers came to Abraham with good news. They said, “Peace.” He said, “Peace.” Soon after, he came with a roasted calf.

11|70|But when he saw their hands not reaching towards it, he became suspicious of them, and conceived a fear of them. They said, “Do not fear, we were sent to the people of Lot.”

11|71|His wife was standing by, so she laughed. And We gave her good news of Isaac; and after Isaac, Jacob.

11|72|She said, “Alas for me. Shall I give birth, when I am an old woman, and this, my husband, is an old man? This is truly a strange thing.”

11|73|They said, “Do you marvel at the decree of God? The mercy and blessings of God are upon you, O people of the house. He is Praiseworthy and Glorious.”

11|74|When Abraham’s fear subsided, and the good news had reached him, he started pleading with Us concerning the people of Lot.

11|75|Abraham was gentle, kind, penitent.

11|76|“O Abraham, refrain from this. The command of your Lord has come; they have incurred an irreversible punishment.”


37|101|So We gave him good news of a clement boy.
37|102|Then, when he was old enough to accompany him, he said, “O My son, I see in a dream that I am sacrificing you; see what you think.” He said, “O my Father, do as you are commanded; you will find me, God willing, one of the steadfast.”
37|103|Then, when they had submitted, and he put his forehead down.
37|104|We called out to him, “O Abraham!
37|105|You have fulfilled the vision.” Thus We reward the doers of good.
37|106|This was certainly an evident test.
37|107|And We redeemed him with a great sacrifice.
37|108|And We left with him for later generations.
37|109|Peace be upon Abraham.
37|110|Thus We reward the doers of good.
37|111|He was one of Our believing servants.
37|112|And We gave him good news of Isaac, a prophet, one of the righteous.
37|113|And We blessed him, and Isaac. But among their descendants are some who are righteous, and some who are clearly unjust to themselves.

14|35|Recall that Abraham said, “O my Lord, make this land peaceful, and keep me and my sons from worshiping idols.”

14|36|“My Lord, they have led many people astray. Whoever follows me belongs with me; and whoever disobeys me—You are Forgiving and Merciful.

14|37|“Our Lord, I have settled some of my offspring in a valley of no vegetation, by Your Sacred House, our Lord, so that they may perform the prayers. So make the hearts of some people incline towards them, and provide them with fruits, that they may be thankful.”

14|38|“Our Lord, You know what we conceal and what we reveal. And nothing is hidden from God, on earth or in the heaven.”

14|39|“Praise be to God, Who has given me, in my old age, Ishmael and Isaac. My Lord is the Hearer of Prayers.”

14|40|“My Lord, make me one who performs the prayer, and from my offspring. Our Lord, accept my supplication.”

14|41|“Our Lord, forgive me, and my parents, and the believers, on the Day the Reckoning takes place.”

14|42|Do not ever think that God is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only defers them until a Day when the sights stare.

22|26|We showed Abraham the location of the House: “Do not associate anything with Me; and purify My House for those who circle around, and those who stand to pray, and those who kneel and prostrate.”

22|27|And announce the pilgrimage to humanity. They will come to you on foot, and on every transport. They will come from every distant point.

22|28|That they may witness the benefits for themselves, and celebrate the name of God during the appointed days, for providing them with the animal livestock. So eat from it, and feed the unfortunate poor

2|125|And We made the House a focal point for the people, and a sanctuary. Use the shrine of Abraham as a place of prayer. And We commissioned Abraham and Ishmael, “Sanctify My House for those who circle around it, and those who seclude themselves in it, and those who kneel and prostrate.”

2|126|When Abraham said, “O My Lord, make this a peaceful land, and provide its people with fruits—whoever of them believes in God and the Last Day.” He said, “And whoever disbelieves, I will give him a little enjoyment, then I will consign him to the punishment of the Fire; how miserable the destiny!”

2|127|As Abraham raises the foundations of the House, together with Ishmael, “Our Lord, accept it from us, You are the Hearer, the Knower.
