( 58 ) So he made them into fragments, except a large one among them, that they might return to it [and question].
( 59 ) They said, “Who has done this to our gods? Indeed, he is of the wrongdoers.”
( 60 ) They said, “We heard a young man mention them who is called Abraham.”
( 61 ) They said, “Then bring him before the eyes of the people that they may testify.”
( 62 ) They said, “Have you done this to our gods, O Abraham?”
( 63 ) He said, “Rather, this – the largest of them – did it, so ask them, if they should [be able to] speak.”
( 64 ) So they returned to [blaming] themselves and said [to each other], “Indeed, you are the wrongdoers.”
( 65 ) Then they reversed themselves, [saying], “You have already known that these do not speak!”
( 66 ) He said, “Then do you worship instead of Allah that which does not benefit you at all or harm you?
( 67 ) Uff to you and to what you worship instead of Allah. Then will you not use reason?”
( 68 ) They said, “Burn him and support your gods – if you are to act.”
( 69 ) Allah said, “O fire, be coolness and safety upon Abraham.”
( 70 ) And they intended for him harm, but We made them the greatest losers.
( 71 ) And We delivered him and Lot to the land which We had blessed for the worlds.
( 72 ) And We gave him Isaac and Jacob in addition, and all [of them] We made righteous.
