Historical Debate Between Prophet Ibrahim and King Nimrud
The debate between Ibrahim and Nimrud A debate once took place between Sayyiduna Ibrahim and Nimrud. Nimrud Who is this God to which you call us to?
Ibrahim My Allah is the one who gives life and takes it away Nimrud I have that ability Nimrud ordered two men to appear in front of him. He ordered one to be killed and the other to be spared. Nimrud Look! I killed one and spared the other so I have the ability to give and take life Ibrahim Allah raises the sun from the east. If you have the power
then raise it from the west? Nimrud heard this and fell silent! Qur’an: al-Baqara 258 The people in the past who made false claims to divinity fell silent to the simple answare of Allah’s Prophets. This was after all one of the reasons why Allah sent prophet after prophet to mankind to remind them that there Lord is Allah and He is one and He alone is to be worshiped. •
