The good men and true, who succeeded

Abraham, received the gifts

Of revelation and guidance, and kept

Alive Allah’s Message, which now

Is proclaimed in the Quran,

In which is blessing and confirmation

Of all that went before. In the daily

Pageants of Nature – the dawn

And the restful night, the sun,

The moon, the stars that guide

The mariner in the distant seas

The rain-clouds pouring abundance,

And the fruits that delight the heart

Of man – can ye not read

Signs of Allah? No vision can

Comprehend Him, yet He

Knoweth and comprehendeth all.

وَتِلْكَ حُجَّتُنَا آتَيْنَاهَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَلَىٰ قَوْمِهِ

That was the reasoning

About Us, which

We gave to Abraham

(To struggle) against his people:

& > The spiritual education of Abraham raised him many degrees above his contemporaries, and he was expected to use that knowledge and dignity for preaching the truth among his own people.

نَرْفَعُ دَرَجَاتٍ مَّن نَّشَاءُ ۗ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ حَكِيمٌ عَلِيمٌ

We raise whom We will,

Degree after degree:

For thy Lord is full

Of wisdom and knowledge.

وَوَهَبْنَا لَهُ إِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ ۚ كُلًّا هَدَيْنَا

We gave him Isaac

And Jacob: all

We guided:

& > the great Teachers accepted among the great religions founded on Moses, Jesus and Muhammad. The first to be mentioned are Abraham, his son Isaac, and Isaac’s son, Jacob. Abraham was the first to have a Book. His Book is mentioned though it is now lost.

& > They were therefore the first to receive Guidance in the sense of a Book.

صُحُفِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَمُوسَىٰ

The Books of Abraham and Moses.


Wonderful are the ways of Allah

In creation, and the love with which

He guides His creatures’ destinies,

Gives them the means by which to strive

For maturity by ordered steps, and reach

The ending most fitted for their natures.

His Law is just and easy, and His Grace

Is ever ready to help: let us look

To the Eternal Goal, with hearts and souls

Of Purity, and glorify His name:

For in this changing, fleeting world,

His Word is always true, and will remain,

Through all the ages, ever the same.
