Allah the Most Exalted says in the Quran: We are relating unto you the most beautiful stories in that which we have revealed to you from the Quran, though before it you were from among those who were not aware of them. Prophet Abraham (pbuh) was endowed with many spiritual understanding from an early age. Allah enlightened his heart and mind gave him wisdom from childhood. During Abraham's early childhood Abraham saw that his own father made strange statues. One day, he asked him about what he made. His father replied that he made statues of gods. Abraham was astonished and he rejected the idea. Being a child he played with such statues sitting on their backs as people sit on the backs of donkeys and mules.
