built by a prophet

Might be my cynical outlook, but, I mostly suspect they were built for a profit.

Judging by your posting history, I doubt you agree with me what "truth and reality" entails. Neither Islam or Christianity or onboard that ship I'm afraid.

because of your thread i discovered and learned new thing in the quran today.

i read the following verses many times but i did not make
and it did not come into my mind
and it did not come into my heart a logical justification for them because i do not need to do so . because i am already a believer .


from the following verses i can answer your sarcasm from my own thoughts and i do not need to seek and cut and paste the answer of expert

Verily among those who followed his Way was Abraham.
Behold! he approached his Lord with a sound heart.
Behold! he said to his father and to his people, "What is that which ye worship?
"Is it a falsehood- gods other than Allah. that ye desire?
"Then what is your idea about the Lord of the worlds?"
Then did he cast a glance at the Stars.
And he said, "I am indeed sick (at heart)!"

So they turned away from him, and departed.

Then did he turn to their gods and said, "will ye not eat (of the offerings before you)?...
"What is the matter with you that ye speak not (intelligently)?"
Then did he turn upon them, striking (them) with the right hand.

Then came (the worshippers) with hurried steps, and faced (him).
He said: "Worship ye that which ye have (yourselves) carved?
"But Allah has created you and your handwork!"

They said, "Build him a furnace, and throw him into the blazing fire!"

(This failing), they then sought a stratagem against him, but We made them the ones most humiliated!

He said: "I will go to my Lord! He will surely guide me!
"O my Lord! Grant me a righteous (son)!"
So We gave him the good news of a boy ready to suffer and forbear.


Then, when (the son) reached (the age of) (serious) work with him, he said: "O my son! I see in vision that I offer thee in sacrifice: Now see what is thy view!" (The son) said: "O my father! Do as thou art commanded: thou will find me, if Allah so wills one practising Patience and Constancy!"

So when they had both submitted their wills (to Allah., and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice),
We called out to him "O Abraham!

"Thou hast already fulfilled the vision!" - thus indeed do We reward those who do right.

For this was obviously a trial-

And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice:

And We left (this blessing) for him among generations (to come) in later times:

"Peace and salutation to Abraham!"

Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.

For he was one of our believing Servants.

And We gave him the good news of Isaac - a prophet,- one of the Righteous.

We blessed him and Isaac: but of their progeny are (some) that do right, and (some) that obviously do wrong, to their own souls.
