Hadith #3 – From the Scrolls of Abraham
From Abu Dhar (ra): “I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم), what were the scrolls of Abraham (as)?’ He said, ‘They were parables,’ : ‘Oh king who has been entrusted with authority and who has been tested with that authority and who has been deluded by that authority: I did not send you to this world to amass the fortunes of it. Rather I sent you to avert from me the call of the oppressed for I do not reject the call of the oppressed even if it comes from a disbeliever.’”
Each of the messengers of God preached the importance of justice, only differing in legislation. This lecture describes some of the lessons on oppressors and the oppressed from the scrolls of Abraham (as).
