۞ Surely We had bestowed wisdom upon Abraham even earlier, and We knew him well. (51) He said to his father and to his nation: 'What, are these the statues to which you cling' (52) They answered: "We found our forefathers worshipping them." (53) He said: "Indeed you and your fathers have been in manifest error." (54) They asked: "Hast thou come unto us [with this claim] in all earnest - or art thou one of those jesters?" (55) He said, "Nay, your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, He Who created them (from nothing): and I am a witness to this (Truth). (56) Abraham said to himself, "By God! I will devise a plan against their idols when they are away." (57) Then he broke them all into pieces, sparing only the supreme one among them that they may possibly return to him. (58) They said, "Who has done this to our gods? Indeed, he is of the wrongdoers." (59) Some among them said, “We heard a youth speak ill of them the one called Ibrahim.” (60) "Bring him before the people," they said, "that they may bear witness." (61) They said: art thou the one who hath wrought this unto our gods, O Ibrahim? (62) He said: But this, their chief hath done it. So question them, if they can speak. (63) Thereupon they turned to their (inner) selves and said (to themselves): "Surely it is you who are the wrong-doers." (64) Then they were utterly put to confusion saying, 'Very well indeed thou knowest these do not speak.' (65) Abraham said: "Do you, then, worship beside Allah a thing that can neither benefit you nor hurt you? (66) "Fie upon you, and upon the things that ye worship besides Allah! Have ye no sense?".. (67) They exclaimed: "Burn him, and [thereby] succour your gods, if you are going to do [anything]!" (68) [But] We said: O fire! Be thou cool, and [a source of] inner peace for Abraham!" (69) And they wanted to harm him, but We made them the worst losers. (70) We took Abraham and Lot safely to the land in which We had sent blessings to the worlds. (71) We bestowed Isaac and then Jacob on him as an additional boon and We made all of them righteous. (72) and appointed them to be leaders guiding by Our command, and We revealed to them the doing of good deeds, and to perform the prayer, and to pay the alms, and Us they served. (73) To Lot, We gave judgment and knowledge and saved him from the village that had been committing corrupt deeds; for they were an evil nation and were debauched. (74) And We admitted him into Our mercy; indeed he is among those who deserve Our proximity. (75)
