Mr Waqas,

There are no predictions in Islam. Only God is the knower of the unseen.

Please do not bring confusing matters here.

Using QXP for translation or explanation is the Forum Policy.

See how clear QXP is.

37:100 (Abraham migrated to Can’aan - Syria-Palestine - and prayed), “My Lord! Grant me a healthy and righteous child.” [‘Saleh’ also means healthy]

37:101 So, We gave him the good news of a clement son (Ishmael).

37:102 And when he was old enough to strive along with him, Abraham said, “O My dear son! I have had a vision that I must give you to a life of test and tribulation for a noble cause (37:107). So look, what do you think?” He said, “O My father! Do what you are commanded. God willing, you will find me of the steadfast.” [Have had a dream = Have had a vision. Zibh and Zabh = Sacrifice = Disregard comfort for a noble cause. Just as Qatl = To subdue, kill, fight, humiliate, bring low]

37:103 As both of them had surrendered themselves (to God), he made Ishmael further submit in gratitude. [Contrary to popular tradition, Abraham never envisioned or intended to slaughter his son. God does not play games with His servants. Literal ‘forehead to ground’ = complete submission in gratitude]

37:104 We called unto him, “O Abraham!

37:105 You have already affirmed the vision. We – This is so - We must reward the doers of good.”

37:106 This was a trial, clear in itself. [Leaving the prestigious office of Chief Priesthood in Babylon and now the comfort of Syria for the wilderness of Makkah]

37:107 We exchanged his life for a Momentous Sacrifice. [Notice here the absence of the Biblical and the traditional myth of a 'ram' sent from the heavens. Also, note that slaughtering of a sheep or goat, by no means, can be considered a Momentous Sacrifice. 14:37, 37:102. Leaving the prestigious office of Chief Priesthood in Babylon and now the comfort of Syria for the wilderness of the Valley of Makkah was the Momentous Sacrifice]

37:108 And We left for him remembrance among the later generations.

37:109 Peace and salutation to Abraham!

37:110 Thus do We reward the benefactors of humanity.
