[021:058] So he broke them to pieces, (all) except the biggest of them, that they might turn to it.


[021:059] They said: "Who has done this to our ālihah (gods)? He must indeed be one of the Zālimun (wrongdoers)."


[021:060] They said: "We heard a young man talking against them, who is called Ibrāhīm (Abraham)."


[021:061] They said: "Then bring him before the eyes of the people, that they may testify."


[021:062] They said: "Are you the one who has done this to our gods, O Ibrāhīm (Abraham)?"


[021:063] [Ibrāhīm (Abraham)] said: "Nay, this one, the biggest of them (idols) did it. Ask them, if they can speak!"


[021:064] So they turned to themselves and said: "Verily, you are the Zālimūn (polytheists and wrong doers)."


[021:065] Then they turned to themselves (their first thought and said): "Indeed you [Ibrāhīm (Abraham)] know well that these (idols) speak not!"


[021:066] [Ibrāhīm (Abraham)] said: "Do you then worship besides Allāh, things that can neither profit you nor harm you?


[021:067] "Fie upon you, and upon that which you worship besides Allāh! Have you then no sense?"


[021:068] They said: "Burn him and help your ālihah (gods), if you will be doing."


[021:069] We (Allāh) said: "O fire! Be you coolness and safety for Ibrāhīm (Abraham)!"


[021:070] And they wanted to harm him, but We made them the worst losers.


[021:071] And We rescued him and Lūt (Lot) to the land which We have blessed for the 'Ālamīn (mankind and jinn).


[021:072] And We bestowed upon him Ishāq (Isaac), and (a grandson) Ya'qūb (Jacob). Each one We made righteous.
