This followed God’s order for Abraham to go to what became The Holy Land. This is mentioned in Surah Anbiyaa, verses 71 and 72:
We delivered both him [Abraham] and Lot to the land that We had blessed for all beings. And in addition to that, We gave him Isaac and Jacob and made both of them righteous.
We clearly see that it was God who brought Abraham into the Holy Land of Canaan. However, another important point is revealed in reading the above Quranic verse. Whenever God discusses the Holy land, He associates with it the names of Isaac and Jacob. This is very significant. It is also important to note that, since the Quran does not mention the migration in detail, we must look to the Jewish Bible (Old testament for Christians), because that is where we find those details, as I mentioned previously.
I will come up with more traditions and Quranic verses in the following episodes.
