 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


فَـَٔامَنَ لَهُۥ لُوطٌ وَقَالَ إِنِّى مُهَاجِرٌ إِلَىٰ رَبِّىٓ إِنَّهُۥ هُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْحَكِيمُ 26  وَوَهَبْنَا لَهُۥٓ إِسْحَٰقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ وَجَعَلْنَا فِى ذُرِّيَّتِهِ ٱلنُّبُوَّةَ وَٱلْكِتَٰبَ وَءَاتَيْنَٰهُ أَجْرَهُۥ فِى ٱلدُّنْيَا وَإِنَّهُۥ فِى ٱلْءَاخِرَةِ لَمِنَ ٱلصَّٰلِحِينَ 27

26.  And Lot believed him. And He (Abraham) said: Lo! I am a fugitive unto my Lord. Lo! He, only He, is the Mighty, the Wise.


27.  And We bestowed on him Isaac and Jacob, and We established the Prophet-hood and Scripture among his seed, and We gave him his reward in this world, and lo! In the Hereafter he verily is among the righteous.

26.  Fa-‘aamana  lahuu  Luut.  Wa  qaala  ‘innii  muhaajirun  ‘ilaa  Rabbii.  ‘InnaHuu  Huwal-‘Aziizul-Hakiim.


27.  Wa  wahabNaa  lahuuu  ‘Ishaaqa  wa  Ya’-quuba  wa  ja-‘alNaa  fii  zurriyyatihin-Nubuwwata  wal-Kitaaba  wa  ‘aatay-Naahu  ‘ajrahuu  fid-dunyaa.  Wa  ‘innahuu  fil-‘Aakhirati  laminas-Saalihiin.


Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) caused to understand the people of his folk by every way that “worshiping of idols is a great error”. But they did not understand. Moreover, they became his enemies and cast him in the pyre of fire after kindling it. Allaah Almighty protected him (peace be upon him) safe and sound from the fire by His mercy and they could not harm him. Even after that, he (peace be upon him) warned them continuously, but only his nephew; named Lot (peace be upon him) confirmed and believed in him. Other all people denied. When the enemies troubled Abraham (peace be upon him) more than enough then Allaah Almighty commanded him to leave the township. He (peace be upon him) did not invoke a curse for his folk, but at the end he said to his father and left off, “I shall pray in the Court of Allaah Almighty for your guidance and to forgive your sins”. After saying this, he along with his wife Sarah and his nephew Lot (peace be upon them), departed from their native land Babel (Township of Syria) having belief in Allaah Almighty.


This emigration became blessed for them by the Grace of Allaah Almighty. He gave Abraham (peace be upon him) a son whose name was Isaac and then the name of Isaac’s son was Jacob (peace be upon them). The Children of Israel were descendants of Jacob (peace be upon him). In the family of Abraham (peace be upon him), Prophet-hood was established for ever and the heavenly Scriptures were also revealed among them. Allaah Almighty gave Abraham (peace be upon him) his reward in this world, and indeed he is among the righteous in the Hereafter too.
