Why did they throw Abraham in the fire? What happened to him?

Telling people the truth is not always an easy task. Sometimes It becomes a sort of bravery when it comes to life threatening. Although some people are reluctant to tell the truth when the majority  is against them, prophets and messengers of Allah never hesitate to convey their message to people in very critical conditions and tell them the truth that God is one he has neither partners nor sons. One the other hand, Almighty Allah never let his prophets and  pious people down.  Here is one of the bravest stories where the prophet Abraham had critical time with his people because he said to them the truth. The following verses of the Quran will narrate this story:  

"51And We had certainly given Abraham his sound judgement before, and We were of him well-Knowing

52When he said to his father and his people, "What are these statues to which you are devoted?"

53They said, "We found our fathers worshippers of them."

54He said, "You were certainly, you and your fathers, in manifest error." 

55They said, "Have you come to us with truth, or are you of those who jest?"

56He said, "[No], rather, your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, who created them, and I, to that, am of those who testify.

57And [I swear] by Allah, I will surely plan against your idols after you have turned and gone away."

58So he made them into fragments, except a large one among them, that they might return to it [and question].

59They said, "Who has done this to our gods? Indeed, he is of the wrongdoers."

60They said, "We heard a young man mention them who is called Abraham."

61They said, "Then bring him before the eyes of the people that they may testify."

62They said, "Have you done this to our gods, O Abraham?"

63He said, "Rather, this - the largest of them - did it, so ask them, if they should [be able to] speak."

64So they returned to [blaming] themselves and said [to each other], "Indeed, you are the wrongdoers."

65Then they reversed themselves, [saying], "You have already known that these do not speak!"

66He said, "Then do you worship instead of Allah that which does not benefit you at all or harm you?

67Uff to you and to what you worship instead of Allah. Then will you not use reason?"

68They said, "Burn him and support your gods - if you are to act." 

69Allah said, "O fire, be coolness and safety upon Abraham."

70And they intended for him harm, but We made them the greatest losers.

71And We delivered him and Lot to the land which We had blessed for the worlds.

72And We gave him Isaac and Jacob in addition, and all [of them] We made righteous.[1]
