War correspondent Rageh Omaar, who was brought up as a Muslim, examines Abraham, one of the most revered patriarchs of both the Jewish and Christian Bible and of the Muslim Holy Qur'an. According to all three faiths, he was the first man to worship one God - and one God alone - and all three religions claim him as an ancestor. He's often cited by world statesman as a unifying figure for all the three religions, yet today many of the 'children of Abraham' are locked in conflict.
