Description from the publisher:
Prophet Abraham plays key role in interfaith dialogue activities, for he is considered the patriarch of all divinely revealed religions. The Message of Abraham: His Life, Virtues, and Mission explores his example through many of his outstanding virtues, his investigation of faith, his willingness to worship the divine alone, his regard for nature, his faithfulness to his hospitality, compassion, and devotion to God Who, the One and Only.Alongside many references to the Biblical sources, the book presents the Islamic standpoint with respect to the teachings and message of Prophet Abraham. As a qualified reference authored by a leading Turkish professor of Islam in Turkey, the book addresses not only Muslims, but also practicing Christians and Jews. Learning about Abraham and his role is significant in a globalized world where distances have shrunken and everyone has almost become a next-door neighbor to one another, without discriminating race of faith.
