MessageSujet: Believers deserve perfect security   Dim 23 Fév - 16:57

Bismilahi Rahmani Rahim,

Qur'an 6:82 Those who believe, and do not pollute their belief with idol worship, have deserved the perfect security, and they are truly guided.

From the lessons that we have been given in the Bible and the Qur'an, there is the well-known story about Abraham how he was thrown into a burning fire for advocating his Monotheistic beliefs, without any fear. But God did not deliver him into the hands of his enemies; He saved him in a miraculous manner, by causing the fire to become cool and safe. A less known, but almost similar story to this is the story about three young Jews who refused to obey an unjust order of King Nebuchadnezzar and to worship his statue.

Here are some verses of Daniel chapter 3:

4 Then a herald cried aloud: “To you it is commanded, O peoples, nations, and languages,
5 that at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, you shall fall down and worship the gold image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up; 
6 and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.”

At that time everybody came together; the prefects, the governors, the advisers, the treasurers, the lawyers, the judges and all the rulers of the provinces. They gathered and worshiped the statue of the King.

However, some of the Kings's astrologists went to him to inform him about 3 men among his Jewish servants, the men of Judah, who refused to worship the statue. The King became angry and called his young men, and here is what they answered the King:

17 If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. 
18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”...21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their trousers, their turbans, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 

22 Therefore, because the king’s command was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego.

24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?” They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”

25 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

Here, the fourth person is an angel which intervened to save them from the flames.

26 Then Nebuchadnezzar went near the mouth of the burning fiery furnace and spoke, saying, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, servants of the Most High God, come out, and come here.” Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego came from the midst of the fire.

28 Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, who sent His Angel and delivered His servants who trusted in Him, and they have frustrated the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they should not serve nor worship any god except their own God!
29 Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation, or language which speaks anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made an ash heap; because there is no other God who can deliver like this.”
30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego in the province of Babylon.

Here, we have a great lesson since the tyrannical king, who did not hesitate to order one of the worst enormities, namely idolatry, submitted himself and recognized the infinite power of the Almighty! Praise be to God, the One True God worthy of worship!

In fact, believers who fear God and follow His commandments are a good example and thus they invite to the path of God. In contrary to the sinful act of setting a bad example and then repelling people from the path of God by their behavior. And that is strongly condemned by God:

Qur'an 16:94 Do not abuse the oaths among you, lest you slide back after having a strong foothold, then you incur misery. Such is the consequence of repelling from the path of GOD *you incur a terrible retribution.

*(by setting a bad example)

In chapter 6 of the book of Daniel, Daniel the prophet was saved by God from the claws of the lions.

The prophet Daniel himself who was facing the King's decree for not worshipping anyone but him for 30 days, Daniel maintained his worship to God alone. For this reason, he was thrown into the den of lions. In fact the King's decree was the result of a conspiracy on behalf of his subordinates, where Daniel's elevated status and the King's jeaoulosy towards him, drove them to seek an excuse to execute Daniel.

Here are some verses from Daniel chapter 6:

3 Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm.
4 So the governors and satraps sought to find some charge against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find no charge or fault, because he was faithful; nor was there any error or fault found in him.
5 Then these men said, “We shall not find any charge against this Daniel unless we find it against him concerning the law of his God.”

6 So these governors and satraps thronged before the king, and said thus to him: “King Darius, live forever!
7 All the governors of the kingdom, the administrators and satraps, the counselors and advisors, have consulted together to establish a royal statute and to make a firm decree, that whoever petitions any god or man for thirty days, except you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions.

8 Now, O king, establish the decree and sign the writing, so that it cannot be changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which does not alter.”
9 Therefore King Darius signed the written decree.
10Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.

11 Then these men assembled and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.
12 And they went before the king, and spoke concerning the king’s decree: “Have you not signed a decree that every man who petitions any god or man within thirty days, except you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions?”

The king answered and said, “The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which does not alter.”
So they answered and said before the king, “That Daniel, who is one of the captives from Judah, does not show due regard for you, O king, or for the decree that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day.”

14 And the king, when he heard these words, was greatly displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him; and he labored till the going down of the sun to deliver him.
15 Then these men approached the king, and said to the king, “Know, O king, that it is the law of the Medes and Persians that no decree or statute which the king establishes may be changed.”
16 So the king gave the command, and they brought Daniel and cast him into the den of lions. But the king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Your God, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you.”
17 Then a stone was brought and laid on the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the signets of his lords, that the purpose concerning Daniel might not be changed.

18 Now the king went to his palace and spent the night fasting; and no musicians were brought before him. Also his sleep went from him.
19 Then the king arose very early in the morning and went in haste to the den of lions.
20 And when he came to the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?”
21 Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever!
22 My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.”

23 Now the king was exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no injury whatever was found on him, because he believed in his God.

Again, this is a great lesson that God offers us through this story. Believers will fear no evil, if they maintain their devotion to Him alone, He will not allow the disbelievers to prevail over the believers! Glory be to God, the Only worthy of worship!

Qur'an 47:7 O you who believe, if you support GOD, He will support you, and strengthen your foothold.
