Ibrāhīm (Arabic: إبراهيم), or Abrāhām, known as Ibrāhīm al-Khalīl, is the second of Ulu l-'Azm prophets. Abraham was selected as a prophet in Transoxiana, and invited Nimrod, the ruler of his time, and people of the region to monotheism. A few accepted his call, and since he was disappointed of their faith, he immigrated to Palestine.
According to Quranic verses, Abraham's people worshiped idols, and when Abraham (a) broke their idols, they threw him into fire, but the fire became cool at the command of God, and Abraham (a) emerged safe and sound from the fire.
