To test Abraham's faith, God commanded him to make a burnt offering of his son Issac. Abraham bound Issac, laid him on the altar and drew his knife; at that moment an angel appeared and stayed Abraham's hand, saying 'Now I know that you are a God-fearing man. You have not withheld me from your son' Abraham raised his eyes and saw a ram caught in a thicket which he sacrificed instead.
