Who was Abraham
long after Noah, there was a man named Abraham. Abraham was also a true devotee of God and would always pray to God. He had plenty of goats and sheep with which he would live his life.
Abraham lived in Haran’s land with his wife Sarai. But both were sad for only one thing, they had no children. But still, Abraham believed in his God and prayed to him.
One day a light shone and a voice echoed in Abraham’s ears. That voice was that of God. God came in Abraham’s dream and said, “Abraham, my child leave this country and go to the land that I will show you. I will create a great nation through you. I will bless you and make your name so great that your name will become a source of welfare. “
Abraham reveals the words of God to his wife Sarai and tells her that God has spoken to him.
Sarai asked, “What did God say to you?”
“God has told me that I should leave this country and go to the land that he have mentioned. God will guide me and bless me,” Abraham said in response.
Hearing these things, Sarai got a little nervous and started thinking that it would be right to leave her house like this? But Abraham encouraged Sarai and said that this is the will of God, he will do good whatever he does. Therefore, we have to trust him and walk in the path described by him.

Sarai accepted the king’s invitation with a condition and that condition was she would be accompanied by her family. The king accepted his condition. Everyone gathered to eat at night. The king told Sarai that all of them should stay there. After this, the king told Abraham that I will make you governor and in return, I will marry your sister Sarai.

Doctor looked at the king very closely and said that it is a curse of God. He was cursed because he was trying to get close to Sarai and Sarai was someone else’s wife. Knowing this, the king asked Sarai, “You lie to me. You are already married. Who is your husband?”
Sarai said, “Yes, my husband is Abraham. We told you lies because by doing this we could save ourselves. If we don’t do this, we could be in danger.”
The king ordered Abraham to be summoned. As soon as Abraham came, the king asked him a lot of questions. Abraham was afraid and told all the things to the king and started apologizing to the king.
The king said, “I will forgive you only on one condition and let go from here. You can also take all the gold that has been given to you. For that, you will have to pray to your God to free me from this curse.”
Abraham prayed to his God as the king said. Abraham, his wife and his nephew went from there.
