Relate to them ˹O Prophet˺ the story of Abraham,
٧٠
when he questioned his father and his people, “What is that you worship ˹besides Allah˺?”
٧١
They replied, “We worship idols, to which we are fully devoted.”
٧٢
Abraham asked, “Can they hear you when you call upon them?
٧٣
Or can they benefit or harm you?”
٧٤
They replied, “No! But we found our forefathers doing the same.”
٧٥
Abraham responded, “Have you ˹really˺ considered what you have been worshipping—
٧٦
you and your ancestors?
٧٧
They are ˹all˺ enemies to me, except the Lord of all worlds.
٧٨
˹He is˺ the One Who created me, and He ˹alone˺ guides me.
٧٩
˹He is˺ the One Who provides me with food and drink.
٨٠
And He ˹alone˺ heals me when I am sick.
٨١
And He ˹is the One Who˺ will cause me to die, and then bring me back to life.
٨٢
And He is ˹the One˺ Who, I hope, will forgive my flaws1 on Judgment Day.”
٨٣
“My Lord! Grant me wisdom, and join me with the righteous.
