۞ And indeed We bestowed Ibrahim with guidance from the beginning, and We were Aware of him. (51) When he said to his father and his people: "What are these idols to which you cling so passionately?" (52) They replied, "We found our fathers worshipping them." (53) He said, 'Then assuredly you and your fathers have been in manifest error.' (54) They said, 'What, hast thou come to us with the truth, or art thou one of those that play?' (55) He said: Nay, but your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, Who created them; and I am of those who testify unto that. (56) "And by Allah, I shall plot a plan (to destroy) your idols after you have gone away and turned your backs." (57) He broke all the idols into pieces, except the biggest among them so that perhaps people would refer to it. (58) They said: who hath wrought this to our gods? verily he is of the wrong-doers. (59) They said, 'We heard a young man making mention of them, and he was called Abraham.' (60) [The others] said: "Then bring him before the peoples eyes, so that they might bear witness [against him]!" (61) "Did you do this to our gods, O Abraham?" they enquired. (62) He answered: "Rather it was this supreme one who has done it. So ask them, if they can speak." (63) They then turned to themselves, and said: verily ye it is who are the wrong-doers. (64) Again they were inverted upon their heads; saying, “You know well that these do not speak.” (65) He said, 'What, and do you serve, apart from God, that which profits you nothing; neither hurts you? (66) Fie upon you and that you serve apart from God! Do you not understand?' (67) They said: "Burn him, and save your gods, if you are men of action." (68) We said: O fire, be coolness and peace for Abraham, (69) They wished to entrap him, but We made them greater losers. (70) We took Abraham and Lot safely to the land in which We had sent blessings to the worlds. (71) And We bestowed on him Isaac, and Jacob as an additional gift, and made them righteous. (72) We made them leaders who guided people by Our command. We revealed to them the doing of good, observance of prayer and the giving of alms and Us alone did they worship. (73) We bestowed upon Lot sound judgement and knowledge, and We delivered him from the city that was immersed in foul deeds. They were indeed a wicked people, exceedingly disobedient. (74) We admitted him to Our mercy; he was a righteous man. (75)
