Surah Nahl (16) 14/09/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Verses 120 – 123. “Ibrahim was indeed a model, devoutly obedient to Allah, true in Faith, and he joined not gods with Allah…so we have taught you (Oh Muhammed) the inspired (Message): ‘Follow the ways of Ibrahim the true in Faith, and He joined not gods with Allah.”

This set of verses highlight the high regard of Ibrahim (AS) in the sight of Allah (SWT) – he is the patriarch of the 3 great religions and is the father of Tauheed (Monotheism). He is described as an “ummah”- a model to follow.  The model of Tauheed. Even the Prophet Muhammad(SAW) is instructed in the verse to follow the footsteps of this forefather Ibrahim(AS). Many lessons can be learnt from these 2 great messengers of Allah (SWT).

Continues tomorrow… Salaams/Peace.
