Abraham

"Abraham was indeed a model, devoutly obedient to God, (and) true in faith, and he joined not gods with God. He showed his gratitude for the favors of God, who chose him, and guided him to a straight way. And We gave him good in this world, and he will be, in the hereafter, in the ranks of the righteous. So We have taught thee (Muhammad) the inspired (message), 'Follow the ways of Abraham, the true in faith; and he joined not gods with God.'"

—Koran 16:120-123


Joseph

"When God's messenger was asked who among men was most honorable, he replied, 'The one who is most honorable in God's estimation is the most pious.' On being told that that was not what they meant, he said, 'The most honorable was God's prophet Joseph, son of God's prophet Jacob, son of God's prophet Isaac, son of God's friend Abraham.'"

—Hadith
