Millat means a path or a way in Arabic. Millat Ibrahim denotes the ideology of Abraham in the Qur'an and how he reached them after his intellectual and spiritual journey. The Qur'an tells us about his experiences in the quest for the truth. How he considered a star, moon and sun as his God but rejected them as mere creatures and how he finally believed in their Creator (Qur'an 6:76-79).
In Islam, Abraham is a central figure in the Qur'an. He is described as a leader of humankind (Qur'an 2:124), a prophet, a friend of God (Qur'an 4:125) and one who is among the righteous. The Qur'an refers to the faith of Abraham as Millat Ibrahim (millatu Ibrāhīm), and it also says that he coined the term "Muslim".
The word Millat is used in 15 different verses of Qur'an. Ten of them (2:120,2:130,2:135,3:95,4:125,6:161,12:37,12:38,16:123,22:78) refers, either directly or indirectly, to Abraham.
