Answer:

 

Azar was the father of Ibrahim(a.s.)

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: According to common knowledge father of Hazrat Ibrahim (P.B.U.H) was Azar as per ibn katheer  - Qasas Al Ambia  is Tarakh, some say Azar was hazrat ibrahim's (a.s) uncle.

pls. let me know which one is right.

If one has knowledge of even basic Arabic language, one would unequivocally and unconditionally confirm that the term used for father in the Arabic language is Abb; and the term used for uncle is Amm!


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Anaam verse 74:

74 Lo! Ibraheem said to his Abi (father) Azar: "Takest thou idols for gods? For I see thee and thy people in manifest error!"

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 37 Surah Saafaat verses 83-85:

83 Verily among those who followed his Way was Ibraheem.


84 Behold! He approached his Lord with a sound heart.

85 Behold! He (Ibraheem (a.s.)) said to his Abi (father) and to his people "What is that which ye worship?

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 21 Surah Anbiyaa verses 51-52:

51 We bestowed aforetime on Ibraheem his rectitude of conduct and well were We acquainted with him.

52 Behold! He (Ibraheem (a.s.)) said to his Abi (father) and his people "What are these images to which ye are (so assiduously) devoted?"

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 43 Surah Zukhruf verses 26-27:

26 Behold! Ibraheem said to his Abi (father) and his people: "I do indeed clear myself of what ye worship:

27 (I worship) only Him Who made me and He will certainly guide me."

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 19 Surah Maryam verses 41-46:

41 Also mention in the Book (the story of) Ibraheem: he was a man of Truth, a Prophet.

42 Behold! He (Ibraheem (a.s.)) said to his Abi (father): "Yaa Abati (O my father)! Why worship that which hears not and sees not, and can profit thee nothing?

43 Yaa Abati (O my father)! To me hath come knowledge which hath not reached thee: so follow me: I will guide thee to a Way that is even and straight.

44 Yaa Abati (O my father)! Serve not the Shaytaan: for the Shaytaan is a rebel against (Allah) Most Gracious.

45 Yaa Abati (O my father)! I fear lest a Penalty afflict thee from (Allah) Most Gracious so that thou become to the Shaytaan, a friend."

46 (The father) replied: "Dost thou hate my gods O Ibraheem? If thou forbear not I will indeed stone thee: now get away from me for a good long while!"

 

Respected sister, in light of the above quoted Guidance of the Glorious Quran, Azar indeed was the father of Hadrat Ibraheem (a.s.) and not his uncle.

 

Even after being presented with such overwhelming evidence from the Very Book of Allah itself, there are some misguided sects and people who hold an ulterior agenda, and they claim that Azar was not the father, but rather the uncle of Prophet Ibraheem (a.s.).

 

Perhaps from the below quoted Verse of Surah Yusuf, they would like to deduce that Prophet Yaqoob (a.s.) was not the Abb (father) but rather the uncle of Prophet Yusuf (a.s.)???

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 12 Surah Yusuf verse 4:

4 Behold Yusuf said to his Abi (father:ie. Prophet Yaqoob (a.s.)): "Yaa Abati (O my father)! I did see eleven stars and the sun and the moon: I saw them prostrate themselves to me."

Respected sister in Islam, we absolutely assure you that there is nothing in the Glorious Quran or the authentic and established Sunnah which restricts the believing woman who is experiencing her post child-birth menstruation from leaving her house or going about her business as and when she wills and wishes.

 

The quoted restriction is self-invented and self-imposed and has absolutely nothing to do with the guidance of the Quran or the Sunnah.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
