فَمَا كَانَ جَوَابَ قَوْمِهِ إِلاَّ أَن قَالُواْ ٱقْتُلُوهُ أَوْ حَرِّقُوهُ فَأَنْجَاهُ ٱللَّهُ مِنَ ٱلنَّارِ إِنَّ فِي ذٰلِكَ لآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ
-Al-‘Ankabût ( العنكبوت )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

God, exalted be He, says with regard to the tale of Abraham, peace be upon him: But the only answer of his people was that they said, ‘Slay him, or burn him!’ Then God delivered him from the fire, into which they threw him, by making it cool and harmless for him. Surely in that, namely, [in that] deliverance of him from it, there are signs — namely, the fact that it did not have any affect on him despite its greatness, and the fact that it was extinguished and that within a brief period meadows sprung up in its place — for a people who believe, [a people who] affirm the truth of God’s Oneness and His power, for they are the ones to benefit from these [signs].
