Abraham (peace be on him) is referred to as "Friend of God" in the Holy Quran. Here are two citations from the Quran on his conversation with his father and how God saved Abraham from the Fire.
019.041 (Also mention in the Book (the story of) Abraham: He was a man of Truth, a prophet. 019.042 Behold, he said to his father: "O my father! why worship that which heareth not and seeth not, and can profit thee nothing? 019.043 "O my father! to me hath come knowledge which hath not reached thee: so follow me: I will guide thee to a way that is even and straight. 019.044 "O my father! serve not Satan: for Satan is a rebel against (God) Most Gracious. 019.045 "O my father! I fear lest a Penalty afflict thee from (God) Most Gracious, so that thou become to Satan a friend." 019.046 (The father) replied: "Dost thou hate my gods, O Abraham? If thou forbear not, I will indeed stone thee: Now get away from me for a good long while!" 019.047 Abraham said: "Peace be on thee: I will pray to my Lord for thy forgiveness: for He is to me Most Gracious. 019.048 "And I will turn away from you (all) and from those whom ye invoke besides God: I will call on my Lord: perhaps, by my prayer to my Lord, I shall be not unblest." 019.049 When he had turned away from them and from those whom they worshipped besides God, We bestowed on him Isaac and Jacob, and each one of them We made a prophet. 019.050 And We bestowed of Our Mercy on them, and We granted them lofty honour on the tongue of truth.
021.051 We bestowed aforetime on Abraham his rectitude of conduct, and well were We acquainted with him. 021.052 Behold! he said to his father and his people, "What are these images, to which ye are (so assiduously) devoted?" 021.053 They said, "We found our fathers worshipping them." 021.054 He said, "Indeed ye have been in manifest error - ye and your fathers." 021.055 They said, "Have you brought us the Truth, or are you one of those who jest?" 021.056 He said, "Nay, your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, He Who created them (from nothing): and I am a witness to this (Truth). 021.057 "And by God, I have a plan for your idols - after ye go away and turn your backs".. 021.058 So he broke them to pieces, (all) but the biggest of them, that they might turn (and address themselves) to it. 021.059 They said, "Who has done this to our gods? He must indeed be some man of impiety!" 021.060 They said, "We heard a youth talk of them: He is called Abraham." 021.061 They said, "Then bring him before the eyes of the people, that they may bear witness." 021.062 They said, "Art thou the one that did this with our gods, O Abraham?" 021.063 He said: "Nay, this was done by - this is their biggest one! ask them, if they can speak intelligently!" 021.064 So they turned to themselves and said, "Surely ye are the ones in the wrong!" 021.065 Then were they confounded with shame: (they said), "Thou knowest full well that these (idols) do not speak!" 021.066 (Abraham) said, "Do ye then worship, besides God, things that can neither be of any good to you nor do you harm? 021.067 "Fie upon you, and upon the things that ye worship besides God! Have ye no sense?".. 021.068 They said, "Burn him and protect your gods, If ye do (anything at all)!" 021.069 We said, "O Fire! be thou cool, and (a means of) safety for Abraham!" 021.070 Then they sought a stratagem against him: but We made them the ones that lost most! 021.071 But We delivered him and (his nephew) Lut (and directed them) to the land which We have blessed for the nations.
