Jewish, Christian and Muslim believers regard Abraham as a founding patriarch of their peoples. Abraham was ordered by God to sacrifice his Isaac as a test of faith. When Abraham was in the process of fulfilling this order, God revoked the command and rewarded Abraham for his faith. He forged a covenant with Abraham and stated that through his offspring, all the nations of the world would come to be blessed. Bahá’ís regard Abraham as a Manifestation of God.
