ABRAHAM'S NEAR SACRIFICE OF HIS SON 

The Qur’anic narrative is based on Yusuf Ali’s English translation of the Holy Qur’an, while the biblical narrative is based on the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible.

Qur'an: Surah 37 Al Saffat

Bible: Genesis 22

(99) He (Abraham) said: "I will go to my Lord! He will surely guide me!"

 

(100) "O my Lord! Grant me a righteous (son)!"

 

(101) So we gave him the good news of a boy ready to suffer and forbear.

 

(102) Then, when (the son) reached (the age of) (serious) work with him, he said: "O my son! I see in a vision that I offer you in sacrifice. Now see what is your view!" (The son) said: "O my father! Do as you are commanded; you will find me, if Allah so wills, one practicing patience and constancy!"

 

(1) After these things, God tested Abraham. He said to him, "Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am".

(2) He said, "Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains that I will show you."

(3) So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac; he cut the wood for the burnt offering, and set out and went to the place in the distance that God had shown him.

(4) On the third day, Abraham looked up and saw the place far away.

(5) Then Abraham said to his young men, "Stay here with the donkey; the boy and I will go over there; we will worship and then we will come back to you."

(6) Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on his son Isaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife. So the two of them walked on together.

(7) Isaac said to his father Abraham, "Father!" And he said, "Here I am, my son." He said, "The fire and the wood are here, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?"

(8) Abraham said, "God himself will provide the lamb for a burnt offering, my son." So the two of them walked on together.

(103) So when they had both submitted their wills (to Allah), and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice),

 

(104) We called out to him, "O Abraham!"

 

(105) "You have already fulfilled the vision!" And thus indeed We reward those who do right.

(9) When they came to the place that God had shown him, Abraham built an altar there and laid the wood in order. He bound his son Isaac, and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.

(10) Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to kill his son.

(11) But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven, and said, "Abraham, Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am."

(12) He said, "Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me."

(106) For this was obviously a trial.

 

(107) And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice.

 

(13) And Abraham looked up and saw a ram, caught in a thicket by its horns. Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up instead of his son.

(14) So Abraham called that place, "The LORD will provide"; as it is said to this day, "On the mount of the LORD it shall be provided."

 

(108) And We left (this blessing) for him among generations (to come) in later times:

 

(109) "Peace and salutation to Abraham!"

 

(110) Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.

 

(111) For he was one of Our believing servants

(15) The angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time from heaven,

(16) and said, "By myself I have sworn, says the LORD: Because you have done this, and have not withheld your son, your only son,

(17) I will indeed bless you, and I will make your offspring as numerous as the stars of heaven and as the sand that is on the seashore. And your offspring shall possess the gate of their enemies,

(18) and by your offspring shall all the nations of the earth gain blessing for themselves, because you have obeyed my voice."

(112) And We gave him the good news of Isaac, a prophet, one of the righteous.

 

(113) We blessed him and Isaac, but of their progeny are (some) that do right and (some) that obviously do wrong, to their own souls.

(19) So Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beer-sheba; and Abraham lived at Beer-sheba.
