۞ AND, INDEED, long before [the time of Moses] We vouchsafed unto Abraham his consciousness of what is right; and We were aware of [what moved] him (51) When he said to his father and his people, “What are these idols before whom you squat (worshipping)?” (52) They replied, "We found our fathers worshipping them". (53) Said he: "Indeed, you and your forefathers have obviously gone astray!" (54) They said: Have you brought to us the truth, or are you one of the triflers? (55) He said, 'Nay, but your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth who originated them, and I am one of those that bear witness thereunto. (56) By the Lord, I will devise a plan against your deities after you have gone away and turned your backs!" (57) So he made them into fragments, except a large one among them, that they might return to it [and question]. (58) They said: "Who has done this to our aliha (gods)? He must indeed be one of the wrong-doers." (59) They said: "We heard a young man talking (against) them who is called Ibrahim (Abraham)." (60) They said, 'Bring him before the people's eyes; haply they shall bear witness.' (61) [And when he came.] they asked: "Hast thou done this to our gods, O Abraham?" (62) He said: rather he hath wrought it, this big one of them; so question them, if they ever speak. (63) Thereupon they realized their own foolishness and said, "We ourselves are wrong-doers". (64) Then crestfallen (they confessed): "Truly, as you know, they cannot speak." (65) He said: Worship ye then instead of Allah that which cannot profit you at all, nor harm you? (66) Fie on you and on what you serve besides Allah; what! do you not then understand? (67) They said: "Burn him, and save your gods, if you are men of action." (68) But We said, "Fire! Be cool and a means of safety for Abraham." (69) They had sought to do evil to him, but We caused them to be the worst losers, (70) But We delivered him and (his nephew) Lut (and directed them) to the land which We have blessed for the nations. (71) And We bestowed upon him ls-haq and Ya qub as a grandson; and each one We made righteous. (72) We appointed them as leaders to guide the people through Our command and sent them revelation to strive for good deeds, worship their Lord, and pay religious tax. Both of them were Our worshipping servants. (73) AND UNTO Lot, too, We vouchsafed sound judgment and knowledge [of right and wrong,] and saved him from that community which was given to deeds of abomination. [We destroyed those people - for,] verily, they were people lost in evil, depraved (74) And We caused him to enter into Our mercy; verily he was of the righteous. (75)
