The Story of Abraham and Nimrod

Hasan A. Yahya, Ph.D, a writer from Arab Land

Abraham as we knew from historical and biblical scriptures the patriarch father of prophets for Arabs and Jews. He's the father of Ishmael and Isaac. Nimrod, however was the emperor of Babylonia, the one who'se story was mentioned in holy books of Muslims and Jews. In Islam, Muslims believe that God interfered to save Abraham from fire as Qur'an tells the story. In this article, the story version of a story of Nimrod and Abraham: was told by the Rabbis Midrash from the 6th century AD :
"(...) He [Abraham] was given over to Nimrod. [Nimrod] told him: Worship the Fire! Abraham said to him: Shall I then worship the water, which puts off the fire! Nimrod told him: Worship the water! [Abraham] said to him: If so, shall I worship the cloud, which carries the water? [Nimrod] told him: Worship the cloud! [Abraham] said to him: If so, shall I worship the wind, which scatters the clouds? [Nimrod] said to him: Worship the wind! [Abraham] said to him: And shall we worship the human, who withstands the wind? Said [Nimrod] to him: You pile words upon words, I bow to none but the fire - in it shall I throw you, and let the God to whom you bow come and save you from it!
Haran [Abraham's brother] was standing there.

He said [to himself]: what shall I do? If Abraham wins, I shall say: "I am of Abraham's [followers]", if Nimrod wins I shall say "I am of Nimrod's [followers]". When Abraham went into the furnace and survived, Haran was asked: "Whose [follower] are you?" and he answered: "I am Abraham's!". [Then] they took him and threw him into the furnace, and his belly opened and he died and predeceased Terach, his father."
A lot happened between the time of the Biblical Nimrod and Abraham and the 6th century Jewish Rabbi's that dreamed up this scenario.
The name Nimrod has also become synonymous with a 'fool' as the American Heritage Dictionary says:
"The name Nimrod is either a hunter or a person regarded as silly or foolish." Many people have tried to correlate Nimrod with all the initial evils, idolatry and ills in the world. Many have taught the whole world rebelled against God because of Nimrod's rebellion.


His name, they say, means rebellion and it is said he was the first Idolater."
Recently, a writer from the holy land, contrasted Nimrod with the state of Zionist Israel. Nimrod and Israel has much in common. They both have several misjudgments, conquered enemies, open cities by force, and tortured defeated people, and committed several massacres. The writer concluded:
" Israel since its creation, works and behaves as if it were God, like Nimrod, when he stood against God. Nimrod died and vanished, Israel will die and vanish too. History will tell. Palestinians will vanish too, but they will prevail first in few years, as Israeli-Zionist Jews did in 1948 until now." I believe strongly, the writer is telling the truth. (514 words)
