Assalamu Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh,

I'm looking for a short story on the Prophet Ibrahim Alayhis Salaam aimed at young children, i've read a few different ones in books and some on the internet but they all seem to be either too long or too complicated unfortunately,

Any help would be greatly appreciated Insha'Allah, JazakAllah Khayr in advance!

:w: :peace:

Summary of the Beginning of Ibrahims life

There was a time when only three believers existed on Earth.
They were Ibrahim, soon to be the prophet of God,
Sarah who was the wife of Ibrahim and Lut the cousin of Ibrahim.
They grew up in a land where people worshipped the idols and the stars.
Aazar, the father of Ibrahim, also worshipped idols.
With time Ibrahim grew into a young man and realised that worshipping Idols is wrong.
He invited his father to worship Allah, the creator of all things, alone.
Upon hearing the invitation his father got angry and threatened his son, thinking that
Ibrahim plans evil against his Gods when Ibrahim only wanted to show his father the truth.
As time passed Ibrahim observed the stars, the sun, the moon and the likes with his people,
each time realising none is worthy of worship besides Allah.
Ibrahim then told his people to worship Allah alone but his people refused to leave the way
of their forefathers.
Ibrahim then planned to prove that the idols were false.
So when his people went for their yearly festival Ibrahim stayed behind.
He entered upon the place where the worshipping of the idols takes place and
destroyed every small idol and left an axe with the biggest Idol.
When the people returned from the festival they were angry and summoned Ibrahim for questioning.
They then asked him if he had destroyed the idols to which he told them to ask the big Idol
which still had an axe in its hands. The people knew the big one couldnt speak
and became so furious that they created a fire so huge that the likes had never been seen.
It was so huge a catapult was needed to hurl someone into it due to its heat.
The first man who attempted to create the catapult was Hizan and Allah caused the earth to swallow him up and he will continue being swallowed till the day of judgement.
They then took ibrahim far away and launched him from the catapult into the fire.
Ibrahim prayed to Allah and the fire had become coolness for him only burning at the chains
used to tie him up. This was a favour from Allah upon Ibrahim, his servant and messenger.


Bro this is just a rough draft, but it takes up a lot of space and its only the part of his life upto were he was exhiled. I havent done nimrod or the sacrifice of Ismail yet.

By the way its all been authentically taken from Ibn Katheer :), so it is correct.

Bro sorry for not doing the whole thing, but if you want i can still do nimrod and sacrifice of ismail tomorrow :)

Assalamu Alaikum
