[006:074] And (remember) when Ibrhm (Abraham) said to his father zar: "Do you take idols as lih (gods)? Verily, I see you and your people in manifest error."


[006:075] Thus did we show Ibrhm (Abraham) the kingdom of the heavens and the earth that he be one of those who have Faith with certainty.


[006:076] When the night covered him over with darkness he saw a star. He said: "This is my lord." But when it set, he said: "I like not those that set."


[006:077] When he saw the moon rising up, he said: "This is my lord." But when it set, he said: "Unless my Lord guides me, I shall surely be among the people who went astray."


[006:078] When he saw the sun rising up, he said: "This is my lord. This is greater." But when it set, he said: "O my people! I am indeed free from all that you join as partners (in worship with Allh).


[006:079] Verily, I have turned my face towards Him Who has created the heavens and the earth Hanfa (Islmic Monotheism, i.e. worshipping none but Allh Alone), and I am not of Al-Mushrikn." (See V.2:105).


[006:080] His people disputed with him. He said: "Do you dispute with me concerning Allh while He has guided me, and I fear not those whom you associate with Him (Allh) in worship. (Nothing can happen to me) except when my Lord (Allh) wills something. My Lord comprehends in His Knowledge all things. Will you not then remember?


[006:081] "And how should I fear those whom you associate in worship with Allh (though they can neither benefit nor harm), while you fear not that you have joined in worship with Allh things for which He has not sent down to you any authority. (So) which of the two parties has more right to be in security? If you but know."




(V.6:74) Narrated Abu Hurairah [radhi-yAllhu 'anhu]: The Prophet [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "On the Day of Resurrection, Ibrhm (Abraham) will meet his father Azar whose face will be dark and covered with dust. (The Prophet) Ibrhm will say (to him): 'Didn't I tell you not to disobey me?' His father will reply: 'Today I will not disobey you.' Ibrhm will say: 'O Lord! You promised me not to disgrace me on the Day of Resurrection; and what will be more disgraceful to me than cursing and dishonouring my father?' Then Allh [Subhnahu wa Ta'la] will say (to him): 'I have forbidden Paradise for the disbelievers.'Then he will be addressed, 'O Ibrhm! Look! What is underneath your feet?' He will look and there he will see a Dhkh (an animal - male hyena), blood-stained, which will be caught by the legs and thrown in the (Hell) Fire." [Sahih Al-Bukhri, 4/3350 (O.P.569)]
