Basic Information

Abraham features in the Book of Genesis. He is widely regarded as the patriarch of Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

Abraham symbolizes the man chosen by God to safeguard the holy faith, as God promises unnumbered descendants and vast wealth to him, and he becomes effectively another Adam and the ancestor of the Messiah. In return, Abraham is ready to give up all he has in blind faith - his home, and even his son. He also represents unity between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Psychologically, Abraham represents the need for a complete break with one's family, as well as social and professional environment to fulfill a special destiny - a common theme with those destined for greatness.[1]
