۞ Before this We gave Abraham his virtue, for We knew him. (51) Recall what time he said unto his father and his people: what are these images to which ye are cleaving? (52) They said, "We found our fathers worshipping them." (53) He said, "You were certainly, you and your fathers, in manifest error." (54) They said: "Are you speaking in earnest, or only jesting?" (55) He said, "[No], rather, your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth who created them, and I, to that, am of those who testify. (56) Abraham said to himself, "By God! I will devise a plan against their idols when they are away." (57) So he broke them to pieces, (all) except the biggest of them, that they might turn to it. (58) "Who has done this to our deities? He must be a wrongdoer." (59) They said: We heard a youth speak of them, who is called Ibrahim. (60) They said: bring him then before the eyes of the people, haply they may bear witness. (61) They said: art thou the one who hath wrought this unto our gods, O Ibrahim? (62) He said, 'No; it was this great one of them that did it. Question them; if they are able to speak!' (63) They then turned to themselves, and said: verily ye it is who are the wrong-doers. (64) And they were utterly confounded, and they said: Well thou knowest that these speak not. (65) He said: worship ye, then, beside Allah, that which profiteth you not at all, nor it hurteth you? (66) Fie upon you and that you serve apart from God! Do you not understand?' (67) They said: Burn him and help your gods, if you are going to do (anything). (68) We said: O fire! be thou cool and peace unto Ibrahim. (69) And they wished to cause him harm, so We made them the greatest of losers. (70) And We rescued him and Lut towards the land which We have blessed for the entire world. (71) And We bestowed upon him Isaac and Jacob as an additional gift, making each of them righteous. (72) And We made them leaders, guiding by Our command; and We revealed unto them the doing of good deeds and the establishment of prayer, and the giving of poor-rate; and of Us they were the worshippers. (73) And to Lot We gave judgement and knowledge, and We saved him from the city that was committing wicked deeds. Indeed, they were a people of evil, defiantly disobedient. (74) And We brought him in unto Our mercy. Lo! he was of the righteous. (75)
