Islam, along with Judaism and Christianity, is an Abrahamic faith. In other words, Muslims revere Abraham as a prophet and true follower of God’s religion. In the Quran, the holy book of Islam, God describes Prophet Abraham, peace be upon him (pbuh), as His friend:

Who could be better in religion than those who direct themselves wholly to God, do good, and follow the religion of Abraham, who was true in faith? God took Abraham as a friend. (4:125)

At another point, God says:

Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian. He was upright and devoted to God, never an idolater, and the people who are closest to him are those who truly follow his ways, this Prophet, and [true] believers– God is close to [true] believers. (3:67-68)
