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.
“And inform them about the guests of Abraham, When they entered upon him and said, “Peace.” [Abraham] said, “Indeed, we are fearful of you.” [The angels] said, “Fear not. Indeed, we give you good tidings of a learned boy.” He said, “Have you given me good tidings although old age has come upon me? Then of what [wonder] do you inform?” They said, “We have given you good tidings in truth, so do not be of the despairing.” He said, “And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?” Quran (Surah Hijr, 51-56)
