From Adam to Abraham: “When My Servants Ask of Me, I Am Near” | Virtual Khutbah

In Surat al-Baqarah, there is a verse that states “and when my servants ask you about Me, then tell them I am near. I answer the call of every believer when they call upon me so let them also answer my call and believe in me so they may find rightful guidance” (2:186). Sh. Omar Suleiman discusses the very powerful connection of this ayah to two prophets, Adam and Abraham, and their call to Allah.
