Ibraheem is being shown to us as a complete excellent model of how revelation builds generations of nations who adhere to the revelation and the Deen. This is why the Surah is named after him even though the theme of the Surah is the Qur’an. Some Prophets (AS) faced resistance, or even violence, even some were killed like Yahya (John the Baptist) and Zakariya (AS). Yahya (AS) and Zakariya were sent to the Bani Isra’el especially the rulers, they were very focused on the worldly life. Zakariya (AS) was wise and patient with his difficult people. He tried to order good and forbid bad, but his people rejected him, and told him to keep his teachings in the temple. Zakariya (AS) was worried about his people and all humanity so after many years of working he asked Allah (SWT) for help. Allah (SWT) didn’t make Zakariya (AS) the solution, instead he brought the solution from the wife of Imran. We can see from this we should be concerned about the Ummah and humanity, and that we are not expected to work miracles. The wife of Imran was determined to help the Ummah at least by making sure her child would be a devoted worshipper to Allah (SWT). All she had was her baby, and she didn’t want to send her baby to be in the palace or to be rich, she wanted to make sure her child contributed to the betterment of the Ummah at least. Her child was Mary. When she stayed in the temple under the care of Zakariya (AS) he was inspired to ask for a child himself, he followed the idea and asked Allah (SWT) for a child, not to have a child to enjoy, but to have a child to continue the Deen and help the Ummah. Allah (SWT) granted them children, but the Ummah was not ready for them so Zakariya (AS) was killed, Yahya (AS) was killed, and Esa (Jesus) (AS) was almost killed; all because the Ummah was not ready to take the revelation as the only source of guidance. The people of Mecca ended up at the same point with Muhammad (S) they planned to kill him, but Allah (SWT) saved him. We must do our effort like them, but whether it works or not depends on Allah (SWT) and the conditions of the Ummah.
