Dream of Abraham was not from Allah

Before proceeding, we must first ‘delete’ all that we have been taught and re-approach the Quran in a non-presumptive manner.  Let us allow the Quran to teach us and not expect the Quran to acknowledge our already held beliefs.

Here are some points to consider:

  • Nowhere does the Quran teach us that it was Allah who had given Prophet Abraham his dream to sacrifice his son
  • The Quran only tells us that Abraham had a dream and he asked his son what he thought about it:

And when he reached with him [the age of] exertion, he said, “O my son, indeed I have seen in a dream/manaamai that I sacrifice you. See what you think.” He said, “O my father, do as you are commanded. You will find me, if Allah wills, of the steadfast. (as-Saffat 37:102)

  • The fact that Prophet Abraham asked his son shows that he himself was skeptical:

“…See what you think.”

  • And the rest goes on as follows (as-Saffat 37:103-105):

So when they had both submitted, and he had laid him down on his forehead, We called out to him, ‘O Abraham! You have fulfilled the vision/ar-ro’ya.” Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.

  • What we will read is that there was no mention of the sacrifice being taken place.  Allah ‘stopped’ the sacrifice before it even happened
  • Allah tells Prophet Abraham he had fulled filled the vision/ar-Ro’ya and not manaamai
  • From the beginning to the end, Allah does not say asked Abraham to sacrifice
