Abraham Proves His Point (21:63 – 21:67)

Abraham Proves His Point

[21:63] He said, “It is that big one who did it. Go ask them, if they can speak.”
[21:64] They were taken aback, and said to themselves, “Indeed, you are the ones who have been transgressing.”
[21:65] Yet, they reverted to their old ideas: “You know full well that these cannot speak.”
[21:66] He said, “Do you then worship besides GOD what possesses no power to benefit you or harm you?
[21:67] “You have incurred shame by worshiping idols beside GOD. Do you not understand?”

The people of Abraham had a moment where they experienced cognitive dissonance and realized they were the transgressors, yet they reverted back to their old ways
