It's most repeated verse of the glorious Qur'an.
@Hadithoftheday It is one of the most notable verses of the Quran.
The oft-repeated verse,
"So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny?”, serves to remind us of our lack of gratitude towards Allah.

(Qur'an. An-Nisaa 4: Verse 125)
@Hadithoftheday Many Qur’anic verses revealed concerning Ibraheem A.S suggest that his outstanding importance and high rank among prophets was because of the purity and sincerity of his relationship with his Lord, to whom he totally surrendered his will.
@Hadithoftheday The greatness of Ibrahim’s A.S standing with Allah is confirmed in a number of hadiths. The Prophet ﷺ referred to him as “the best of creation” (Muslim) and mentioned him as one of the prophets whose intercession the believers would seek on the Day of Judgement (Bukhari).
@Hadithoftheday Ismail A.S.
When Hajar eventually ran out of food & water & could no longer breastfeed Ismail, She ran back & forth seven times between Safa & Marwa hoping to find water. Allah then sent Jibrael o their aid and a spring of water appeared from the ground at the feet of Ismail A.S
@Hadithoftheday The well was named Zamzam and the journey back and forth Safa and Marwa became a ritual during Hajj and Umrah.

Hajj is actually the Sunnah of Ibrahim A.S
Every able Muslim who has the finances available (after taking care of all family obligations), is required to embark on this journey once in their life.
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ & his foster mother, Halima Saadia:
When the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was still an infant, a group of ladies visited Makkah to take the new born babies to the open desert environment as per custom of the town.

O Children of Israel, We delivered you from your enemy, and We made an appointment with you at the right side of the mount, and We sent down to you manna and quails (salwa) .” (Qur'an, 20:80)
Yaqub A.S had 12 children. The 12 children of Yaqub A.S had many offsprings. The 12 children were the 12 tribes of Bani Israel.
The twelve tribes of Israel are the descendents of Yaqub A.S, that's why Yaqub A.S also known as Israel.
@Hadithoftheday Israel is the name of the Prophet Yaqub A.S that is used when referring to the Israelites, known as the Children of Israel in the Quran.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ's visit to Ta'if:
Prophet Muhammad had lost his two strongest supporters and sources of comfort, his wife, Khadijah R.A,& his uncle, Abu Talib in the 10th year of Prophethood. This year is called "Aam-ul-Huzn" i.e " Year of Grief or Year of Sorrow"
Without the protection of his uncle, Abu Talib, in Makkah, tortures increased from polythiests and Prophet ﷺ marched towards Taif.
Prophet ﷺ wanted to spread the message to the people of Taif, in hopes that they would believe and accept the message of Islam .

His companion Zaid ibn Harith R.A was with him.

As Umar R.A was reciting Qur'an (Surah Ta-ha), his heart began to melt down. He began to cry.
