Umar on Idolatry: The Caliph hides the grave of Prophet Daniel

Anas reported: When they liberated Tustar, they found a man with a long nose in a coffin. The people were seeking victory and seeking rain through him. Abu Musa wrote to Umar ibn al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, about that. Umar wrote back, saying, “Indeed, this man is one of the prophets. Fire and earth do not consume the bodies of the prophets.” Umar wrote further, “Look for him, you and your companion, and bury him in a place no one knows but the two of you.” Anas said, “Then I went with Abu Musa and we reburied him.”

عَنْ أَنَسٍ أَنَّهُمْ لَمَّا فَتَحُوا تُسْتَرَ فَوَجَدَ رَجُلًا أَنْفُهُ ذِرَاعٌ فِي التَّابُوتِ كَانُوا يَسْتَظْهِرُونَ وَيَسْتَمْطِرُونَ بِهِ فَكَتَبَ أَبُو مُوسَى إِلَى عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ رضي الله عنه بِذَلِكَ فَكَتَبَ عُمَرُ إِنَّ هَذَا نَبِيٌّ مِنَ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ وَالنَّارُ لَا تَأْكُلُ الْأَنْبِيَاءَ وَالْأَرْضُ لَا تَأْكُلُ الْأَنْبِيَاءَ فَكَتَبَ أَنِ انْظُرْ أَنْتَ وَأَصْحَابُكَ فَادْفِنُوهُ فِي مَكَانٍ لَا يَعْلَمُهُ أَحَدٌ غَيْرُكُمَا قَالَ فَذَهَبْتُ أَنَا وَأَبُو مُوسَى فَدَفَنَّاهُ
