Angels’ glad tidings for Prophet Ibrahim – Surah Hijr Verse 51-56 Quran

Brief Verse Interpretation / Tafsir

When the Angels came to Abraham (Ibrahim) with the good news of a righteous learned boy, Abraham was frightened by the Angels as it was the first time he saw them. The Angels assured him they have nothing but good intentions and they were there only to deliver Allah’s message. Abraham still could not believe that at such an old age he could have a boy but the Angels reminded him that only the non-believers doubt Allah’s miracles and mercy.
