Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) called his people to worship Allah alone and to stop the worship of the idols which could neither bring benefit nor cause harm to them. Allah (Glory be to Him says:
And [We sent] Abraham, when he said to his people, “Worship Allah and fear Him. That is best for you, if you should know. You only worship, besides Allah , idols, and you produce a falsehood.

To Him you will be returned.” (Al-`Ankabut 29:-17-18)
