Explanatory Note

The sūrah then depicts two of the main episodes from Abraham’s story. The first shows him advocating faith among his people and destroying their idols, followed by their attempt to kill him and God saving him. This episode is also described in other sūrahs. The second episode however, is only mentioned here. It speaks of Abraham’s dream, his sacrifice and how God released his son. This story is given in detail, speaking of stages and attitudes in a remarkably fine and effective style. It shows the most sublime example of obedience to God, sacrifice and self surrender.

Thus the story opens, moving from Noah to Abraham and making it clear that they were related in faith and its advocacy. Thus Abraham is said to belong to Noah’s community despite the long time gap between them. Nonetheless they shared the same divine constitution and message.
