Ibrahim is reported to be before Moses and Aaron. He found the statues worshiped as God when they can not do anything. When Ibrahim destroy them one by one, they remained silent. Finally, Ibrahim was arrested and burned with a very large fire. God himself is proving to them that God, who is always worshiped Abraham, is He who will save the world and Abraham in the afterlife. Not a bit of burning the body of Abraham. It is the protection of God to those who worship Him. (see Al-Anbiya ‘: 69)
