Sura 16 Ayas 120-123 (In-Person Meetup)

Salam,

Please join us to meet in person at Islamic Center of Vermont to discuss the following verses from Qur'an:

Abraham was a Role Model
Sura 16 Ayas[masked]

Abraham was indeed a role model, obedient to God, true in faith, and he joined not gods with God.
He was grateful for the favors of God; He selected him and guided him to a straight path. And We gave him the best in the world, and in the hereafter, he will be among the worthy. so We have taught you this inspired message” Follow the way of Abraham. the true in faith, and he joined not gods with God.

It is revealing what these ayas say and not say about Abraham, the role model. They do not say what Abraham looked like, the language he spoke, his ethnicity, where he lived or when, or any of his circumstances. None of this is relevant to being a role model. The ayas describe the key traits of Abraham. He was true in his faith and he was grateful for what was given to him. These are the attributes you need to be guided into an exemplary life.

Please arrive on time. Thanks

Sadi
