I am unable to validate the authenticity of this picture. However, it has been reported by the sahabi Anas ibn Malik that the prophet Ibrahim's footprints had already been worn out (from people touching it) in his time. This was 1400 years ago, so I doubt that there are any of the original markings left in this day and age. Anas bin Malik's report is ...

Shias believe the that the 12 imams are better than all prophets except Muhammad. They use the following verse as evidence: "And when Abraham was tested by his Lord with certain commands and he fulfilled them. Then He said: Lo! I appoint you an Imam for mankind.”(Qur’an 2:124). وَإِذِ ابْتَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ رَبُّهُ بِكَلِمَاتٍ فَأَتَمَّهُنَّ قَالَ ...

Did Prophet Ibrahim (AS) really lie? If we mean the current and common concept and practice of lying and its purposes as we do it, then the answer is No, Ibrahim (AS) didn't. If no, then what was the reality and correct explanation of the event? The whole thing is included in a Hadith that is mentioned in many Hadith Books, here it is: حَدَّثَنَا ...

There are two commonly-used forms that you can use in your prayers after reciting the tashahhud just before ending your prayers.

From Tafsir al-Maududi: فَلَمَّا رَأَىٰ أَيْدِيَهُمْ لَا تَصِلُ إِلَيْهِ نَكِرَهُمْ وَأَوْجَسَ مِنْهُمْ خِيفَةً قَالُوا لَا تَخَفْ إِنَّا أُرْسِلْنَا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِ لُوطٍ But when he saw that they did not stretch out their hands towards it, he had a mistrust about them and felt a fear of them in his heart. They said, "Don't have any fear: for we have ...

We call the sacrifice as Qurban (in Indonesia) The word Qurban, derived from the Arabic qurban, taken from the word: qaruba (fi'il Madhi) - yaqrabu (fi'il mudhari ') - Qurban wa qurbânan (mashdar). Means, approaching or approached (Matdawam, 1984). According to the terms, qurban is anything that is used to draw closer to God in the form of animal sacrifice ...

No, they practice it based on order of Islam. Ahl ul Bayt in different Hadith said it is obligatory. In Shia Islam it is not necessary to follow religion of prophet Ibrahim (a.s.) because it is partially different of Islam. For example the prayer in religion of prophet Ibrahim (a.s.) is different of prayer in Islam. Shia Islam gets rules only from Quran, ...

Abraham peace be upon him had two children according to Quran, Ishmael and Isaac: الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي وَهَبَ لِي عَلَى الْكِبَرِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ وَإِسْحَاقَ إِنَّ رَبِّي لَسَمِيعُ الدُّعَاءِ Praise to Allah , who has granted to me in old age Ishmael and Isaac. ...

You need to go a few verses after to Qur'an 3:67 to get the rest of the story, which is detailed in in the book Zad al-Ma'ad by Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya (زاد المعاد في هدي خير العباد الإمام شمس الدين أبي عبد الله ابن القيم الجوزية) among others. Quoting from Zad al-Ma'ad with my own translation so treat with care (p. 550-558): إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه ...

In the Quran the number of angels is not mentioned [Quran 11:77]. From the Sahabah, the more widely accepted report is of three angels: Gabriel, Michael and Israfil (Raphael). The narration of two angels likely comes from the the Torah where three angels visited Abraham [Genesis 18:2], and two visited Lut [Genesis 19:1]. Jewish commentaries state that one ...

In similar ways to how they worship Allah now, the Quran mentions Tawaf, which is a major ritual of Hajj and Umrah, and the pillars of Prayer like Qiyam, Sujood and Rukuh: وإذ بوأنا لإبراهيم مكان البيت أن لا تشرك بي شيئا وطهر بيتي للطائفين والقائمين والركع السجود And [mention, O Muhammad], when We designated for Abraham the site of the House, [saying]...

According to Wikipedia, Adam is considered the first Muslim by Muslims. This is because Adam is called a prophet of God and the Quran also says that all the prophets are of the same faith (Islam). It is Abraham who is considered to have built the first house of worship on Earth. All that being said, there are multiple verses in the Quran that suggest that ...

The Answer is Yes. Allah says: فَآمَنَ لَهُ لُوطٌ ۘ وَقَالَ إِنِّي مُهَاجِرٌ إِلَىٰ رَبِّي ۖ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ And Lot believed him. [Abraham] said, "Indeed, I will emigrate to [the service of] my Lord. Indeed, He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise." Quran 29:26 Believed him to be a prophet of Allah and emigrated with him, he ...

The problem is with the way you asked the question, using the words "sent to" which is different than "acknowledged by". All prophets are prophets of Islam and therefore their prophecy is respected and honored by Muslims. The Quran states "Do not differentiate between any one of the prophets (and the others)." Or one could say it means do not consider one ...

It could not be two angels as the Quran uses the word قالو (they said). Had it been two angels the word قالا would have been used. (Quran 29:33)

What was happening was that Allah (ﷻ), out of His Mercy, was aiding the Children of Israel through their troubles/hardships. Specifically, Ibn Kathir رحمه الله said it refers to the "favors and bounties which He bestowed on them when He delivered them from the grip of Fir`awn and his injustice, tyranny and brutality. This is when Allah delivered them ...

I never heard of this mentioned anywhere in Quran (or also its tasfir) explains very clearly. Verse (21:69) - English Translation Allah said, "O fire, be coolness and safety upon Abraham." Indeed Allah (swt) created the fire and he ascribe to it (the fire) the ability to cause harm (to burn). And it is easy for Allah (swt) to change these ...

Ayah Al Baqarah 125 says that the foot print is Ibrahim alai's And [mention] when We made the House a place of return for the people and [a place of] security. And take, [O believers], from the standing place of Abraham a place of prayer. And We charged Abraham and Ishmael, [saying], "Purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who are staying [...
