And mention in the Book [the story of] Abraham. Indeed, he was a man of truth and a prophet. (41) Recall what time he said unto his father: O my father! wherefore worshippest thou that which heareth not and seeth not, nor availeth thee at all? (42) Father, knowledge has come to me which has not come you, therefore, follow me. I will guide you to a Level Path. (43) O my father! serve not the Shaitan, surely the Shaitan is disobedient to the Beneficent Allah: (44) Father, I fear that some chastisement from the All-merciful will smite thee, so that thou becomest a friend to Satan. (45) He said: Do you dislike my gods, O Ibrahim? If you do not desist I will certainly revile you, and leave me for a time. (46) He said: Peace be unto thee! I shall ask forgiveness of my Lord for thee. Lo! He was ever gracious unto me. (47) I shall withdraw from you and all that you call upon beside Allah. I shall only call upon my Lord. I trust the prayer to my Lord will not go unanswered." (48) So when he withdrew from them and what they worshipped besides Allah, We gave to him Ishaq and Yaqoub, and each one of them We made a prophet. (49) We granted them Our blessing and high renown.
