Q What is your favourite story from the Quran?

Although the story of Yusuf (as ) is often described as rhetoric mist beautiful of stories. There are many facets to the story of Ibrahim (as). I have enjoyed covering the story in our Arabic classes and it often shows such a profound reliance on Allah over adversity – from the time that his people were to throw him in the fire, to the time Hajar and Ismail were taken to the desert, to the time he was asked to sacrifice his own son.
