Explanatory Note

The episode narrated here is that of Abraham’s message, given in a sequence of scenes that leave short gaps in between. It starts by mentioning that Abraham was initially given a sense of what is right, which here means God’s oneness. In fact, it is the most important aspect of guidance which is clearly understood here as the referent of the phrase, ‘what is right’. This means that God gave Abraham his sense of what is right, knowing his aptitude to bear the trust given to His messengers.
