[2:130] Who therefore shrinks from the religion of Abraham, except he who fools himself? Indeed We chose him in this world, and in the Hereafter he shall be among the righteous.
He related that among created beings, He preferred the friend (al-khalīl) (ṣa) and therefore made his religion (dīn) the religion. Its distinguishing mark is declaring [God's] oneness (tawḥīd) and its attribute is knowledge (maʿrifa). For whoever shrinks from [Abraham's] religion or deviates from his way (sunna), the false becomes where he is dumped (ma?raḥu) and disbelief becomes where he falls (mahwāhu), since the lights in their entirety are only acquired from [Abraham's] light.
