Reading Time: < 1 minute

We find the practice (Sunnah) of Prophet Ibrahim (a.s.) in the Holy Quran thus:

قَدْ كَانَتْ لَكُمْ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ فِي‏ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَ الَّذِيْنَ مَعَهُ إِذْ قَالُوْا لِقَوْمِهِمْ

“Indeed, for you there is an excellent example in Ibrahim (a.s.) and those with him when they said to their people”

إِنَّا بُرَآؤُا مِنْكُمْ وَ مِمَّا تَعْبُدُوْنَ مِنْ دُوْنِ اللهِ

“Surely we dissociate from you and from whatever you worship besides Allah”

كَفَرْنَا بِكُمْ

“We deny you”

وَ بَدَا بَيْنَنَا وَ بَيْنَكُمُ الْعَدَاوَةُ وَ الْبَغْضَاءُ أَبَداً حَتَّى تُؤْمِنُوْا بِاللهِ وَحْدَهُ

“And enmity and hatred have appeared between us and you forever until you believe in Allah alone.”

[Surah Mumtahenah (60): Verse 4]

This is the practice (Sunnah) of an Ulul Azm Prophet, His Eminence Ibrahim (a.s.) in which there is both, Tabarra as well as condemnation of the enemies of religion!
