but Allâh (Alone)], and he was not of Al-Mushrikûn
(those who worshipped others along with Allâh - see V.2:105)."

down to Ibrâhim (Abraham), Ismâ'il (Ishmael), Ishâque
(Isaac), Ya'qûb (Jacob), and to Al-Asbât [the
twelve sons of Ya'qûb (Jacob)], and that which has been
given to Mûsa (Moses) and 'Iesa (Jesus), and that which
has been given to the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction
between any of them, and to Him we have submitted (in Islâm)."
