Prophet Terah  

Terah was Abraham's father, who was 70 years old when Abraham was born.

Terah was also, a high priest of the idol worshippers. He had twelve chief gods, one for each month of the year, and other idols. In fact, there was a workshop in Terah's house, where idols of wood, stone, silver and gold were made. People came to offer sacrifices to these idols, and Terah had a thriving business.

Eventually, Abraham persuaded his father Terah to give up his idolatry and he went with Abraham to the land of Canaan.
