Prophet Ezekiel (Dzulkifli) As
Almighty Allah said: Do not you (O Muhammad) to think of those who came out of their homes by the thousands, fearing death? Allah said to them: “Die.” And then they gave up their lives. Verily Allah is full of grace for mankind, but most men do not think. (Ch 2:243 Quran).
Muhammad Ibn Ishaq Ibn Wahb said Munbah said that when Allah took Kalih Ibn Yofra (Jephthah) after Joshua, Ezekiel ibn Buzi succeeded him as the prophet to the Israelites. The people had fled from Palestine for fear of the plague and settled on a plateau. Allah said to them: “Die you all”, and all perished. Several centuries passed, and then Ezekiel, passing, stood over them, wondering. Came a voice: “Do you want Allah to resurrect them, while watching” He said: “Yes.” Then he was commanded to call to join the bones to each other and be covered with flesh. So he called them with the power of Allah, and the people stood up and glorified God in a man’s voice.
According to Ibn Abbas, this place was called “Damardan”. Its people have been inflicted with the plague, so they fled, while a group of them who remained in the village died. The Angel of Death called to the survivors: “Die you all”, and perished. After a long time a prophet named Ezekiel passed by them and wonder about them, twisting his mouth and fingers. Allah revealed: “Want me to show them back to life as I said,” Yes “His idea was to admire the power of Allah on them a voice told him:” .. Call: ‘. O you bones, Allah commands you to collect. ‘”The bones began to fly together to become skeletons Then Allah revealed to him saying,’ Call: ‘O you bones, Allah commands you to put. flesh and blood and the clothes they were dead ‘”And a voice said:” Allah commands you to call to get the organs “It came to life when Rose said:” .. Blessed art Thou, O Lord, and all praise is yours. “Ibn ‘Abbas reported that the dead who were resurrected were 4,000, while Ibn Salih said he had 9,000.
As for the plague, Ibn Al-Jarrah Abu Ubaidah related that ‘Umar ibn Al-Khattab was traveling to Syria and had reached Sarg when the leader of the Muslim army, Abu Ubaidah Ibn Al-Jarrah and his companions met him and I told him of a plague that had broken out in Syria. ‘Umar remember the Prophet (peace be upon him) saying: “. If (the plague) to be in a country where you stay, do not go out on the run, and if you feel that in a country, do not enter’ Umar praised Allah and then he left.
Muhammad Ibn Ishaq said that we do not know how long Ezekiel (peace be upon him) remained among the Israelites before Allah took him away. After him, the Israelites strayed from the path of life, as usual, and deserted with their covenant of Allah. They worshiped many gods, including Baal, so Allah has sent them the Prophet Elijah (peace be upon him).
