Moreover, many of the non-Arabic accounts on Ebrahim's life preceded with a short account of the life of his father, Adham. The idea, I think, is that 'holiness' or goodness is a human quality and we should look for and love the goodness in humans rather than turning to ideas of an abstract holiness outside ourselves.
