Shri Abraham and His Quotes


Shri Abraham is revered as a primordial master in many religious traditions, particularly in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. He is known as the forefather of the 12 tribes of Israel and is considered a spiritual master because of his deep faith, devotion, and unwavering belief in God.

Shri Abraham is also remembered for his deep compassion and kindness. He was a loving husband to Sarah and a devoted father to his son, Isaac. He was known for his hospitality and was always ready to offer help and comfort to those in need.


One of the most well-known stories about Shri Abraham is his willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac at God's command. This act of obedience and faith is considered a testament to his unwavering devotion to God and is still remembered and revered today.
