A. J. Droge is the author of Homer or Moses? Early Christian Interpretations of the History of Culture and, with James Tabor, of A Noble Death: Suicide and Martyrdom among Christians and Jews in Antiquity.

Description

This sūra emphasizes the creative power of one God, especially as manifested in the signs of an ordered natural world, and on that basis attacks the folly of idolatry, charging that other so-called gods are really ‘jinn.’ The story of Abraham’s rejection of idols is repeated, and a parallel is drawn between the ‘religion’ of Abraham and the Prophet, as well as between the Torah of Moses and the Prophet’s Qur’ān.
