21:67 The Persecutors of Abraham

1 min read

“Fie upon you, and upon the things that ye worship besides Allah! Have ye no sense?”..

As soon as they admitted in so many words that
the idols could not speak, Abraham delivered his final
‘Then why do you worship useless impotent creatures?’
After that, there remains nothing but the argument of
violence, which they proceed to exercise, being the party
in power. ‘Burn him at the stake’ is an easy cry!
But it was not Abraham that suffered: it was his
persecutors (21:70).
