Surah As-Saffat 37:101-110

37: l01 Whereupon We gave him the glad tiding of a boy-child gentle [like himself].

37:102 And [one day] when [the child] had become old enough to share in his [father’s] endeavors, the latter said, “O my dear son! I have seen in a dream that I should sacrifice thee, consider, then, what would be thy view!” [Ishmael] answered, “O my father! Do as thou art bid: thou wilt find me if God so wills, among those who are patient in adversity!”

37:103 But as soon as the two had surrendered themselves to [what they thought to be] the will of God, and [Abraham] had laid him down on his face. 

37:104 We called out to him “O Abraham. 

37:105 Thou hast already fulfilled [the purpose of] that dream vision!”Thus, verily, do We reward the doers of good. 

37:106 For, behold, all this was indeed a trial, clear in itself.

37:107 And, We ransomed him with a tremendous sacrifice.

37:108 And left him thus to be remembered among later generations. 

37:109 “Peace be upon Abraham!”

37:110 Thus do We reward the doers of good. 


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
