Allaah Almighty bestowed the sense and wisdom to Prophet Abraham (peace be upon Him) to derive correctly from the worldly things and events by logical process. Due to this extraordinary ability, Allaah Almighty made Him prominent in the group of Prophets/Messengers and chose other residuary Prophets from His generation (peace be upon Them). Some names of Prophets (peace be upon Them) have been mentioned in this verse whose forefather was Prophet Noah (peace be upon Him).
